Vrindavana dasa

 

 

Song 1 (Shri-raga)

 

 

1. pulake carita gaya         sukhe gadagadi yaya

          dekha re chaitanya abatara

baiku/ntha-nayaka hari         dwija-rupe abatari

          sa/nkirtane karena bihara

2. kanaka jiniya kanti        shri-bigraha shobha bhanti

          a-janu-lambita bhuja saje

sannyasira rupa dhari         apana rasa bihwala

          na jani kemana sukhe nace

3. jaya shri-gaurasundara      karu/nara sindhu-maya

          jaya brindabana-raya re

nabadwipe purandara      brindabana pamare

          cara/na-kamale deha chaya re

 

 

     1. Please gaze, O, at Chaitanya-avatara. As He sings, the hairs of His body stand erect. Overcome with ecstasy, He rolls on the ground. He is Lord Krishna, the king of Vaiku/ntha. To this world descending in the form of a brahma/na, He enjoys pastimes of sa/nkirtana.

     2. His form is graceful and glorious. His complexion defeats gold. His long arms reach to His knees. Manifesting the form of a sannyasi, He is overcome by tasting the nectar of love for a person who is actually Himself. How does He dance in such ecstasy? I do not know.

     3. O Shri Gaurasundara, O ocean of mercy, glory to You! O king of Vrindavana, glory to You! O king of Navadvipa, please give the shade of Your lotus feet to this wicked Vrindavana dasa.

 

 

Song 2 (Dhanashi-raga)

 

 

1. gaura govinda-ga/na         shuna he rasika-jana

          bish/nu maha-bish/nu para pahum

yanra pada-nakha-dyuti        parama brahmera sthiti

          sura-muni pra/nera ga/na tuhum

2. antare bara/na bhinna       bahire gaura/nga cihna

          shri-radhara a/nga-kanti raje

shata-dala-kamala         hema-kar/nikara majhe

          bihara-i cari dwari saje

3. goloka baiku/ntha ara       shwetadwipa name sara

          ananda apara eka nama

basudeba sa/nkarsha/ne      pradyumnaniruddha-sane

          cari dike saje cari-dhama

4. kshiroda-sagara-jale        bhuja/nga-rajera kole

          yoga-nidra abalambita lila

tahe saba abatari        shwetadwipa adhikari

          ananta nityananda pela

5. (Refrain) sahasra sahasra ka/ne       loliya loliya pade mukhe

sriji du-i jihwaya        gauracandra gu/na gaya

          pada-padme maha-lakshmi buke

6. dasha-shata phe/ni-ma/ni        mukut/era sajani

          shweta an/ge dhare nana jyoti

kata kata parishada       sanaka sanatananande

          deba rishi-ga/ne kare stuti

7. yanra eka loma-kupe        kateka brahma-swarupe

          nana-mate srije saba praja

8. e hena ananta-lila         mayara kata srijila

          shri-radhara kataksha-ba/na tu/ne

brahma/nda upari dhama         shri-brindabana nama

          gu/na-gana kare brindabane

 

 

     1. O devotees of Lord Gaura and Lord Govinda, O rasikas, please hear of the Supreme Lord who is Lord Vish/nu and Lord Maha-Vish/nu. His toenails are the abode of the Brahman effulgence. He is the life's breath of the sages and demigods.

     2. Externally His complexion is fair. In His heart His complexion is different. His external complexion glistens with the color of Shri Radha's limbs. He enjoys pastimes on a thousand-petal lotus, a lotus with four gates.

     3. His abodes are Goloka, Vaiku/ntha, and Shvetadvipa. Any single one of His names is a shoreless ocean of bliss. He is Vasudeva, Sa/nkarsha/na, Pradyumna, and Aniruddha, who have abodes in the four directions.

     4. Reclining on the lap of a snake king floating on the ocean of milk, He enjoys pastimes of mystic sleep. That snake king is the origin of all avataras. He is the master of Shvetadvipa. He is Lord Ananta-Nityananda.

     5. (Refrain) With thousands and thousands of forked tongues moving in thousands of thousands of mouths, Lord Ananta-Nityananda chants the glories of Lord Gaurachandra. Goddess Maha-Lakshmi places Lord Vish/nu-Gaurachandra's feet on her chest.

     6. On each of Lord Ananta-Nityananda's thousands of hoods rests a jewel crown. His white body glistens with many colors. How many associates has Lord Vish/nu-Gaurachandra? Sanaka-kumara, Sanat-kumara, and a host of sages and demigods joyfully glorify Him with prayers.

     7. How many Brahmas are born from each one of His body's pores? Each Brahma begets a great variety of creatures. Ramacandra and the other avataras are all His plenary parts. They are the rulers of the universes.

     8. In this way Lord Vish/nu-Gaurachandra enjoys pastimes without end. How many worlds of maya does He create? His eyes are quivers filled with sidelong-glance arrows aimed at Shri Radha. Above the material world is His spiritual abode, which bears the name Shri Vrindavana. Thus the devotee who bears the name Vrindavana dasa sings His glories.

 

 

Song 3 (Bhatiyari-raga)

 

 

1. abanika majhe dekha dona bha-i

aparupa rupa goracanda nita-i

2. hena padma jini duhum mukha chata

tahe parakashala prema-ghata

3. ghana candane duhum a/nga bhari

bhuja-yuga tuli dohe bala hari

4. nama sa/nkirtana karala prakasha

gu/na ga-oye brindabana dasa

 

 

     1. Look at Lord Gaurachandra and Lord Nitai, the two brothers who have descended to this earth, two brothers whose forms are wonderful and glorious!

     2. The glory of Their faces defeats the lotus flowers. They are effulgent with the glory of ecstatic spiritual love.

     3. Their limbs are anointed with sandal paste. Raising Their arms, They chant, "Hari!"

     4. In this way They manifest the nama-sa/nkirtana movement, the movement of chanting the holy names. Vrindavana dasa thus sings Their glories.

 

 

Song 4 (Suha-i-raga)

 

 

1. madana-mohana tanu gaura/nga sundara

lalate tilaka shobho urdhwe manohara

2. tri-kaccha basana shobhe kutila-kuntala

prakrita nayana du-i parama ca/ncala

3. shukla-yaj/na-sutra shobhe bediya sharire

sukshma-rupe ananta ye hena kalebara

4. adhare tambula hase adhara capiya

yana brindabana dasa se-rupa nichiya

 

 

     1. Graceful Lord Gaura/nga is more enchanting than Kamadeva. Glistening Vaish/nava tilaka adorns His forheead.

     2. He wears glorious trikaccha garments. His hair is curly. His two eyes are naturally restless.

     3. Manifesting a very slender form, Lord Ananta has become His white sacred-thread.

     4. On His lips rest betelnuts and a smile. Vrindavana dasa worships Him.
