Seventh Night, Seventh Night of the Dark Fortnight

 

Song 1 Shri Gaurachandrasya (of Lord Gaurachandra) (Suha-i-raga)

 

1. sahaja-i kancana gora

madana-manohara bayasa kishora

2. tahe dharu nata-bara-besha

prati ange tarangita rasera abesha

3. nacata nabadwipa-canda

jaga-jana nimagana prema-ananda

4. bipula pulaka abalambe

bikashita bhela kiye bhaba-kadambe

5. nayane galaye ghana lora

kshane hase kshane kande bhabe bibhora

6. rasa-bhare gada gada bola

carana-parashe kshiti ananda-hilola

7. purala jaga-jana-asha

kebala bancita gobinda dasa

 

 

     1. He is glorious like gold. Youthful and more charming than Kamadeva, He wears a dancer's garments. His every limb is plunged in great waves of nectar.

     2. He who is the moon of Navadvipa dances. He plunges the people of the world into the bliss of spiritual love.

     3. The hairs of His body stand erect. Has He noe become like a blooming kadamba tree?

     4. Tears stream from His eyes. One moment He laughs and the next moment He weeps. He is overcome with spiritual love.

     5. Overcome by tasting nectar, He speaks broken syllables in a choked voice. The touch of His feet makes the world tremble in waves of bliss.

     6. He fulfills the desires of every person in the world. Only Govinda dasa is cheated. His desire is not fulfilled.

 

 

Song 2 Shri Nityanandacandrasya (of Lord Nityanandacandra) (Beloyara-raga)

 

1. (Refrain) jaya jaga-tarana karana-dhama

ananda-kanda nityananda nama

2. dagamaga-locana      kamala dhula-ota

          sahaja athira gati jini matoyara

bhaya abhirama bali        ghana ghana phukara-i

          gaura-prema-bhare cala-i na para

3. gada gada madhura      madhura bacanamrita

          lahu lahu hasa bikashita ganda

pashanda-khandana       shri-bhuja mandana

          kanaka-khacita abalambana-danda

4. kali-yuga-kala       bhujangama-sangama

          dagadhala sthabara jangama dekhi

jaga bhari prema-        sudha-rasa barikhata

          gobinda dasako kahe upekhi

 

 

     1. (Refrain) Glory, glory to the deliverer of the worlds, tha cause of all causes, the root of all bliss, the master who bears the name Nityananda!

     2. His tear-filled eyes close sleepily. His movements are agitated. It is as if He is intoxicated. Again and again He calls out, "Friend Abhirama!" Overcome with love for Lord Gaura, He now has no power even to move.

     3. In a choked voice He speaks sweet broken syllables. His words are sweet like nectar. His cheeks blossom in sweet sweet smiles and laughter. He breaks the blasphemers into pieces. He graceful arms are decorated with golden ornaments. He holds a staff.

     4. Seeing the moving moving and unmoving beings burning in the grip of the snake of Kali-yuga, He showers the nectar of spiritual love on all the worlds. Govinda dasa asks: Whom should I spurn and whom should I accept?

 

 

Song 3 Shri Radha Praha (Shri Radha Speaks) (Gandhara-raga)

 

1. marakata-darapana barana ujora

hera-ite prati anga ananga agora

2. na bhujhalum ki kahala aruna nayana

hanala ata-e kusuma-shara bana

3. e sakhi kahe bhetalum nanda-nandana

mandira gahana dahana bhela candana

4. taikhane dakhina pabana bhela bama

saha-i na pariye himakara-nama

5. sajaha sheja kamala-dala pati

kulabati yubati le-u nija shati

6. tanhi rahala mana locana lagi

dhairaja laja dure gela bhagi

7. ki phala ekala bikala-parana

gobinda dasa kaha milaba kana

 

 

     1. He is splendid like a sapphire mirror. His limbs eclipse even Kamadeva.

     2. I do not know of any eyes like His reddish eyes, eyes that shoot Kamadeva's arrows.

     3. O gopi-friend, whom did I meet? It was Nanda's son. Because of Him a palace has now become a wild forest and a blazing fire has become cooling sandal paste.

     4. Because of Him the southern wind now blows from the north. Because of HIm I cannot bear the glistening moonlight.

     5. Please make a bed from lotus leaves and petals. This pious girl will rest upon it.

     6. My thoughts rest in Him. My eyes yearn for Him. My shyness and my peaceful compose are now thrown far away.

     7. What fruit will come from the great disorder in this girls's life? Govinda dasa says: She will meet Krishna.

 

 

Song 4 (Bala-raga)

 

1. kanu heraba kari chila bahu sadha

kanu hera-ite aba bhela paramada

2. tab dhari abodhi mugadhi hama nari

ki kari ki bali kachu bujha-i na pari

3. shanana-ghana sama e du-i nayana

abirata dhaka dhaka karaye parana

4. kahe lagi sajani darashana bhela

baraki apana ji-u para hate dela

5. na janiye ki karu mohana cora

hera-ite prana hari la-i ge-o mera

6. eta saba adara ge-o darasha-i

yata bichuriye tata bichura na ja-i

7. bidyapati kahe shuna bara-nari

dhairaja dhara cite milaba murari

 

 

     1. When I see Krishna I will be overcome with desire. I have become wild to see Krishna.

     2. When I see Krishna I will be overcome. What will I do? What will I say? I do not know.

     3. My two eyes have become like two clouds in the monsoon month of Shravana. My life-breath throbs.

     4. O my friend, whom did i see? With His own hand He brought me back to life.

     5. What did this charming thief do to me? I do not know. Anxious to see Him, my life-breath is about to depart.

     6. I yearn to see Him. I try to forget Him. I cannot forget Him.

     7. Vidyapati says: Please hear, O glorious girl. Be patient at heart. Krishna will meet with you.

 

 

Song 5 Duti Praha (A Gopi Messenger Speaks) (Suha-i-raga)

 

1. sahaja-i shyama      sukomala shitala

          dinakara-kirane milaya

so tanu-parasha-         pabana-laba parashite

          malayaja panka shukaya

2. sajani kataye bujha-oba niti

kanu kathina patha          karala arohana

          guni guni tohari piriti

3. anukhana du nayane        nira nahi teja-i

          biraha-anale hiya jari

pabaka-parashe          sarasa daru yaichana

          eka dishe nikasa-i bari

4. sajala-nalini-dale        sheja bicha-o-i

          shutala ati abasade

jnana dasa kahe          camara dhula-ite

          adhika upaje paramade

 

 

     1. Krishna is delicate and cool, and you are like blazing sunlight. The breeze from your body dries sandal paste.

     2. O gopi friend, Please consider what is right. The path that leads to Krishna is very difficult to walk. I think, I think you must have fallen in love with Him.

     3. Do not tears always flow from your eyes? In seems that Your heart is burning in flames of separation from Him. You have become like nectar-sweet wook burning in a fire. I will sprinkle some water on you.

     4. I have made a bed of lotus petals sprinkled with drops of water. Please lie down on it. Jnana dasa says: By moving the camara wisk she brought pleasure to that girl.

 

 

Song 6 (Kamoda-raga)

 

1. prema-ratana-khani        ramani-shiromani

          piya-birahanala jani

antara jara jara         nayana nijhara jhara

          badane na nikasaye bani

2. aju ki kahaba hari-anuraga

taikhane kanana         calali bikala-mana

          dharama-laja-bhaya bhaga

3. manthara gati ati          cala-i na parati

          calatahim tabahim turanta

hiya ati dhasamasi           shwasa-i mukha-shashi

          shrama-jala-kana barikhanta

4. sangini sahacari        durahim parihari

          ra-i ekakini kunje

ballabha murachita           heri jiya-ota

          rupa-sudha-rasa-punje

 

 

     1. She is the crest jewel of all beautiful girls. She is a jewel-mine of spiritual love. Now She burns in flames of separation from Her beloved. Her heart throbs. Tears stream from Her eyes. No words coem to Her mouth.

     2. She has fallen in lovewith Krishna. What will She do now?  She moves througb the forest. Her thoughts are agitated. Fear, shyness, and the rules of religion have fled from Her.

     3. She walks slowly. Then She is stunned. She has no power to move. Then She walks quickly. She feels torment in Her heart. Sighs come from the moon of Her mouth. Showers of perspiration come from Her.

     4. She leaves Her gopi-companion far behind. Radha walks alone in the forest. Sheeing Her beloved She is overcome by the sweet nectar of His handsome form. She faints in ecstasy.

 

 

Song 7 (Kedara-raga)

 

1. donhe donha nirakha-i nayanera kone

donha-hiya jara jata manamatha-bane

2. dohum-tanu pulakita ghana ghana kampa

dohum kata madana-sagare de-i jhampa

3. dohum dohum arati piriti nahi tute

darashane parashe kateka sukha uthe

 

 

     1. They both glance at each other from the corners of Their eyes. Both of Them wounded by Kamadeva's arrows, Their hearts throb.

     2. The hairs of Their bodies stand erect. They both tremble. How many times do They both dive into the ocean of Kamadeva's pastimes.

     3. The love They feel for each other is never broken. How much bliss rises within Them when They see and touch each other?

 

 

Song 8 (the same raga)

 

1. rati-rase atishaya matala naha

amiya-sarobare karu abagaha

2. sahaje nirankusha nagara-naga

tahe manamatha-nripa kautuka laga

3. kara gahi rakhata yugala cakeba

dasha-i sarasija baraba keba

4. kata-i hilora utha-o-i range

dubahim kabahum ananda-tarange

5. hari-ballabha saba sakhi-gana kule

dekhata satata hulasa-i phule

 

 

     1. They have become intoxicated by tasting the sweet nectar of Their pastimes. They dive into a nectar lake.

     2. They become like two wild elephants. King Kamadwva joyfuuly stays with Them.

     3. They hold hands. They play like cakravaka birds. They play among the lotus flowers.

     4. How many times do they playfully rise from the waves? How many times do they dive under the blissful waves?

     5. Their gopi friends, who are all dear to Lord Krishna, watch from the shore. Again and again bliss blossoms amongst them.
