Hari-vallabha dasa

 

 

Song 1 (Suha-i-raga)

 

 

1. (Refrain) shyamera tanu aba gaura-barana

gokula chodi aba      nadiya a-ola

          bamshi chodi kiratana

2. kalindi-tata chodi         surasarit-tate

          abahum karata bilasa

aruna-barana dora-kaupina aba

          chodi pita-dhada basa

3. bame nahata aba ra-i sudha-mukhi

          braja-badhu nahata niyade

gadadhara pandita        phirata bame aba

          sada sa-e bhakata bihare

4. chodi mohana cuda          shire shikha rakhala

          mukhe kahata rara rara

kahe hari-ballabha       teracha cahani

          du-nayane galata dhara

 

 

     1. (Refrain) He whose body was dark now has a fair complexion. Leaving Gokula He came to Nadiya. Putting down His flute He now sings the holy names.

     2. Leaving the Yamuna He came to the Ganga's banks. There He enjoys pastimes. Putting down His yellow garments now He wears the saffron cloth of a sannyasi.

     3. Sweet-faced Radha‘ is no longer at His left. The vraja-gopis are no longer around Him. Now Gadadhara Pandita is at His left. Now He always enjoys pastimes with His devotees.

     4. He abandoned His glorious hair. Now He wears a shikha. With His mouth He now loudly calls the holy names. Hari-vallabha says: Turning away from crooked playful glances He now makes flooding rivers of tears flow from His eyes.

 

 

Song 2 (Shri-raga)

 

 

1. prathame bandiya gaha gauranga gosa-i

advaita nityananda bine ara gati na-i

2. karuna-nayana-kone eka-bara dekha

apana janera jana kari more likha

3. paya dhari daya kari tare hena na-i

parihara patita dekhiya saba tha-i

4. yeba jana pana kari la-ila sharana

svapane nayane mane nahi darashana

5. dayamaya katha kaya hena keba ache

mu-i papi nibediya kaya pahum pache

6. dante ghasa karo ashaya mora ha'ye

ballabha dasiya kaya baishnabera paya

 

 

     1. First I shall bow down. Then I shall sing. I sing that Lord Gauranga Gosa-i Lord Advaita and Lord Nityananda are my only shelter. I have no shelter but Them.

     2. O Lords please place Your glance of mercy upon me. Please write that I am the servant of Your servants.

     3. I grasp Your feet. Please be merciful to me. There is no one like You. Casting a glance on the fallen souls of every place You deliver them all.

     4. You give shelter to anyone who approaches You. With my eyes in my heart or in my dreams I have not seen anyone like You.

     5. Who speaks kind words the way You do?  O Lords I a poor sinner place a request before You.

     6. Placing a blade of grass between my teeth I place my request before You: Please place this Vallabha dasa always at the Vaishnavas’ feet.
