Hari dasa

 

 

Song 1 (Kamoda-raga)

 

 

1. iha kali-yuga dhanya       nityananda shri-chaitanya

          patita lagiya abatara

dekhi jiba bada dukhi         haiya sa-karuna ankhi

          hari-nama ganthi dila hara

2. nija-guna prema-dhana      dila gora jane jana

          patitera age dana kare

nija bhakta sange kari        phire prabhu gaura-hari

          yaciya yaciya ghare ghare

3. jada pangu andha yata      pashu pakhi ara kata

          kandayala nije prema diya

prema saba matta haiya        anna jala teyagiya

          phire tara naciya ga-iya

4. hena prabhu na bhajinu        janamiya na marinu

          hara-inu nityananda nidhi

kahe hari-dasa chara          kona gati nahi ara

          hena yuge bancita kaila bidhi

 

 

     1. Kali-yuga is a fortunate and glorious time for then Lord Chaitanya and Lord Nityananda descend to this world to save the fallen souls. With compassionate eyes seeing the suffering fallen souls the two Lords string a jewel-necklace of the holy names.

     2. Because His very virtuous Lord Gaura gives away the great treasure of spiritual love. Going from person to person He gives every fallen soul the gift of this treasure. Accompanied by His devotees Lord Gaura-Hari goes from house to house begging and begging everyone please to accept His gift.

     3. To everyone even to the fools the lame and the blind He gives His gift of ecstatic spiritual love. Now everyone becomes wild with ecstatic spiritual love. Turning away from food and drink they sing and dance.

     4. I did not worship a Lord that was so kind. I was born. Not yet have I died. I was cheated of the treasure Lord Nityananda brought. Krishna dasa who is worthless like a pile of ashes says: I have no hope but Him. Even though it is the auspicious Kali-yuga destiny still cheated me of this treasure.
