Sankarshana dasa

 

 

Song 1 (Bibhasa-raga)

 

 

1. shri krishna chaitanya jaya patita-pabana

prakashila kali-kale nama-sankirtana

2. jaya nityananda jaya adhama-tarana

daya bitarile dekhi dina-hina jana

3. jaya advaitacandra bhaktera jibana

anilena gauracandra kari akarshana

4. jaya jaya bhakta-brinda parishada-gana

adhame tarile ebe tara sankarshana

 

 

     1. Glory to Shri Krishna Chaitanya, the purifier of the fallen! In the age of Kali He revealed the nama-sankirtana movement of chanting Lord Krishna's holy names.

     2. Glory to Lord Nityananda, the savior of the fallen. Seeing the poor fallen people, He was merciful to them.

     3. Glory to Lord Advaitacandra, the life of the devotees! He brought Lord Chaitanya to this world.

     4. Glory, glory to the devotees, the personal associates of the Lord. They delivered the fallen souls. Now I pray they will deliver Sankarshana dasa.

 

 

Song 2 (Bibhasa-raga or Lopha-raga)

 

 

1. gauranga dayara nidhi guna aganana

tulana dibara nahi anya sthana

2. kalpa-taru abhilasha karaye purana

ye jana tahara sthane karaye yacana

3. sindhu bindu deya tatha karila gamana

indu kari eka paksha kirana barshana

4. patrapatra nahi mane gauranga ratana

samaya bicara ten3ha na kare kathana

5. yacina amulya dhana kare bitarana

ekala bancita kebala dasa sankarshana

 

 

     1. Lord Gauranga is a treasure-house of mercy. His virtues are beyond counting. Nothing is like Him.

     2. A kalpa-taru tree fulfills desires only after one approaches it with a request.

     3. The ocean may splash a single drop and then retreat. The moon showers bright moonlight only at some times of the month.

     4. Lord Gauranga does not consider who is worthy and who is not worthy to receive the jewels He gives away. He does not consider what is an appropriate time and what is not.

     5. Begging everyone please to accept it, He always gives away a precious treasure. He has given it to everyone. Only to Sankarshana dasa was it not given. Only he was cheated.

 

 

Song 3 (Bibhasa-raga or Te-ota-raga))

 

 

1. phalguna-purnima shashi      rahu candrere parashi

          dekhi sabe bole haribola

bajaya keha mridanga      keha jhanjari mocanga

          shankha ghanta shabde lage gola

2. dekhi dina shubha-kshane       prabhu shacira bhabane

          janama la-ila su-mangala

deba-gana sangopane      asi kare darashane

          dritha nahe shuni kolahala

3. nadiyara nara-nari         shuni sukha paya bhari

          dekhibare yaya twara kari

kiba balakera thama      mano-lobha abhirama

          mane haya rakhi ankhi bhari

4. dekhiya ananda kanda       bhakta-ganera ananda

          mane jane ha-ibe nistara

gauranga nahila rati          sankarshana manda-mati

          daya kara shacira kumara

 

 

     1. During the Phalguna-purnima seeing Rahu touch the moon, everyone called out, “Haribol!˘ Soem played mridangas. Others played flutes or gongs. There was a great tumult of bells and conchshells.

     2. Watching for the auspicious dya and moment, the Supreme Personality of Godhead took birth in Shaci's house. Disguising their true identities, the demigods came to see. Not yet seeing, they had heard the tumult.

     3. Hearing the tumult, the joyful men and woemn of Nadiya hurried to see. Standing before the child, their hearts were filled with longings. Bliss entered their thoughts. Their eyes were filled with the sight of the infant boy.

     4. Seeing the boy, the devotees were filled with bliss. In their hearts they knew that now they would be delivered. Only wicked-hearted Sankarshana dasa has no love for Lord Gauranga. O son of Shaci, please be merciful to him anyway.
