Jnana dasa

 

 

Song 1 (Beloyara-raga)

 

 

1. shaci-garbha-sindhu-majhe        gauranga-ratana raje

          prakata ha-ila abanite

heri se ratana abha      jagata ha-ila lobha

          papatama luka-ila turite

2. (Refrain) aya dekhi giya goracande

e canda-badanera age          gaganera canda ki lage

          canda heri canda laje kande

3. piyile candera sudha       dure naki yaya kshudha

          ta-i tare bale sudhakara

e candera nama sudha          pane yaya bhaba-kshudha

          haya jiba ajara amara

4. gora-mukha-sudhakare       hari-nama-sudha jhare

          jnana-dase se amrita caki

edabe samsara-shanka      gora-nama mari danka

          shamana-kinkare dibe phanki

 

 

     1. In the ocean of Shaci's womb, the regal jewel of Lord Gauranga was manifest in this world. Gazing at the spelndor of this jewel, the people of the world yearned to attain it, and the great sins quickly hid.

     2. (Refrain) Ah! He came and gazed at the moon of Lord Gaura! In the presence of the moon of Lord Gauranga's face, of what use is the moon in the sky? Gazing at the moon fo Lord Gauranga's face, the sky's embarrassed moon wept.

     3. Anyone who drinks the nectar of that moon finds his hunger flees far away. The sky's moon says: The very name of this moon is nectar. Anyone who drinks that nectar finds the hungers of this world of birth and death flee far away. That person becomes free from old age and death.

     4. On the nectar moon of Lord Gaura's face flows a nectar river of Lord Keshka's holy names. JOana dasa has himself taken some sips from that river. When the drummer of Lord Gaura's holy name beats his big drum, the fears of this world fo birth and death flee. Those drumbeats scatter Yamaraja's servants.

 

 

Song 2 (Dhanashri-raga)

 

 

1. (Refrain) hema-barana bara       sundara bigraha

     sura-taru bara parakasha

pulaka patra-naba        prema pakwa-phala

          kusuma manda mridu-hasa

2. nacata gaura          manohara sundara

          adbhuta ranjita suradhuni dhara

tri-jagata loka oka      bhari pa-ola

          bhakati-ratana-mani-hara

3. bhaba bibhabamaya       rasa-rupa anubhaba

          su-balita rasamaya anga

dwirada matta-gati       ati su-manohara

          murachita lakha ananga

4. dhani kshiti-mandala        dhani nadiya pura

          dhani dhani ha-i kali-kala

dhani abatara       dhanire dhani kirtana

          jOana dasa naha para

 

 

     1. (Refrain) His graceful golden form is a divine tree, a tree where His boldy hairs standing erect are the leaves, His ecstatic spiritual love is the ripe fruit, and His gentle smile is the flowers.

     2. Charming, wonderful, glorious Lord Gaura dances by the Ganga's stream. To the residents of the three worlds He gives a necklace of the jewels of devotional service.

     3. His body is filled with the nectar of ecstatic spiritual love. His nectar form displays the symptoms of ecstatic love. His graceful motions are like an intoxicated elephant's walk. He enchants the heart. He overwhelms millions of Kamadevas.

     4. Glorious is the circle of the earth! Glorious is Nadiya-pura! Glorious, glorious is the age of Kali! Glorious is Lord Gaura's descent to this world! Most glorious of all glories is His sankirtana movement of chanting the holy names! JOana dasa knows nothing more glorious than sankirtana.
