Prema dasa

 

 

Song 1 (Dhanashi-raga)

 

 

1. bhagyaban shaci jagannatha

putra-rupe pa-ila jagannatha

2. phalgune grasila rahu-canda

shaci-kole shobhe naba-canda

3. labhi mishra yogaradhya-dhana

dina-jane dila kata dhana

4. janma-griha dipta bina dipe

mahananda aji nabadwipe

5. ekatra milita sura-nara

nace gaya gandharba kinnara

6. a-ila prabhu ha-ite bhu-bhara

atulana ananda sabhara

7. gora-prema ha-iya udasa

se anande bhase prema-dasa

 

 

     1. Fortunate Jagannatha Mishra and Shaci-dev.i attained Lord Jagannatha Himself as their son.

     2. As Rahu swallowed the moon in the month of Phalguna, an infant moon shone with great splendor in Shaci's arms.

     3. How much wealth, wealth of yoga and worship, did Jagannatha Mishra then give in charity to the poor?

     4. Although there were no lamps, the maternity-room was filled with light. At that moment Navadvipa was filled with great bliss.

     5. Demigods and humans assembled at that place. The Gandharvas an Kinnaras sang and danced.

     6. The Supreme Personality of Godhead had personally come to remove the earth's burden. Now everyone was filled with peerless bliss.

     7. Turning away from worldly things, everyone is now filled with love for Lord Gaura. Prema dasa now floats in bliss.

 

 

Song 2 (Suha-i-raga)

 

 

1. phalguna-purnima nishi      shaci-ankakase asi

          gauracandra ha-ila udaya

se shashira sahacara       bhakta-taraka-nikara

          cari-dike prakashita haya

2. papa ghora andhakara       sarbatra chila bistara

          bidhudaye prasthana karila

jibera bhagya kumuda          hari shashi mano-mada

          premanande hasite lagila

3. papa ama-nishi bhora        harishe bhakta-cakora

          tulila ananda kolahala

prema-kaumudira sudha         piye dura kaila kshudha

          saba-i ha-ila su-shitala

4. se prema-sudhara kana      paNa tripta sarba-jana

          jiba-kula bhela anandita

apana karama doshe        na pa-iya naba leshe

          prema-dasa dhulaya lunthita

 

 

     1. On the full-moon night of Phalguna month, the moon of Lord Gaura arose in the sky of Shaci's lap. Around that moon in the four directions the stars of the devotees shone.

     2. When that moon rose the horrible all-pervading darkness of sin was chased far away. Seeing that moon, the lotus flowers of the people's good fortune smiled with ecstatic love. Their hearts became wild with bliss.

     3. The cakora birds of the devotees, long distraught over the moonless night of sins, now let out a blissful clamor. Drinking the nectar moonlight, those birds felt their hunger flee far away. Everyone became filled with cooling bliss.

     4. Drinking that nectar moonlight of spiritual love, the living entities became filled with bliss. Because of his past misdeeds, Prema dasa did not drink even a single ray of that nectar moonlight. That is why he now rolls about in the dust.
