Thirtieth Night, the Full-moon Night

 

Song 1 Shri Gaurachandrasya (of Lord Gaurachandra) (Kedara-raga)

 

1. jaya re jaya re gora      shri-shaci-nandana

          mangala natana suthana

kirtana-anande         shribasa ramanande

          mukunda basu guna gana

2. dram drimiki drimi       madala bajata

          madhura mandira rasala

shankha karatala       ghanta-bara bhela

          milala padatala-tala

3. ko de-i gora-ange        sugandhi candana

          ko de-i malati-mala

piriti phula-share           marama bhedala

          bhabe sahacara bhora

4. ko-i kahata gora          janaki-ballabha

          radhara priya pancabana

nayananandera mane      ana nahika jane

          amara gadadharera prana

 

 

     1. Glory, glory to Lord Gaura! He is Shaci's son. In the bliss of kirtana, where Shrivasa, Ramananda, Mukunda, and Vasu sing songs of His glories, He is the abode of auspicious dancing.

     2. "Dram dramiki drimi!", the madala drum sounds. The mandira cymbals sweetly sound. The conchshells, karatalas, and bells all meet in the rhythm called padatala.

     3. Who anointed lord Gaura's fair limbs with fragrant sandal paste? Who gave Him a jasmine garland? Their hearts pierced by flower-arrows, His companions are now overcome with ecstatic love.

     4. Someone says Lord Gaura is Rama, Janaki's beloved. Another says He is Krishna, Radha's beloved. Nayanananda thinks: Lord Gaura is the life's breath of my Gadadhara. I do not know anything more than that.

 

 

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

 

1. shribasa-angane         binoda bandhane

          nace nityananda raya

manuja daibata      purusha yoshita

          saba-i dekhite dhaya

2. bhakata-mandala          ga-ota mangala

          baje khola karatala

majhe unamata      nita-i nacata

          bha-iyara bhabe matoyara

3. hema-stambha-jini          bahu subalani

          simha jini kati-desha

candra badana            kamala-nayana

          madana-mohana besha

4. garaje puna puna           lampha ghana ghana

          malla-besha dhari naca-i

aruna-locane            prema-barikhane

          abani-mandala sinca-i

5. dharani-mandale        premera badara

          karala abadhuta-canda

na jane nara-nari         bhubana dasha-cari

          rupa heri heri kanda

6. shantipura-natha         garaje abirata

          dekhiya premera bikara

dhariya shri-carana        karaye rodana

          pandita shribasa udara

7. mukunda kutuhali         kandaye phuli phuli

          dhariya gadadhara kora

nayane bahe prema        thakura abhirama

          saghane hari hari bola

8. najane diba-nishi       prema-rase bhasi

          sakala sahacara brinde

shankara ghosha dasa       karata prati-asha

          nita-i-caranarabinde

 

 

     1. In Shrivasa's delightful courtyard Lord Nityananda Raya dances. Humans and demigods, men and women, everyone runs to see Him.

     2. The circle of devotees sings auspicious songs. The karatalas and kholas sound. In the midst of it all wild Lord Nitai dances. He is wild with ecstatic spiritual love.

     3. His graceful arms defeat the golden pillars. His slender waist defeats the lion's waist. His face is the moon. His eyes are lotus flowers. His features enchant even Kamadeva.

     4. Again and again he roars. He leaps and leaps. He dances like a wrestler, like an athlete. From His reddish eyes tears rain on the circle of the earth.

     5. Lord Nitai, the moon of avadhutas, showers tears of love on the circle of the earth. The men and women of the fourteen worlds do not understand Him. Gazing and gazing at His wonderful handsome form, they weep.

     6. Seeing Lord Nitai's spiritual ecstasy, Lord Advaita, the master of Shantipura, roars again and again. Noble Shrivasa Pandita grasps Lord Nitai's feet and weeps.

     7. Mukunda weeps for joy. Overcome, he embraces Gadadhara. Tears of spiritual love flow from Abhirama Thakura's eyes. He calls out, "Hari! Hari!"

     8. Everyone floats in the nectar of ecstatic love. No one knows if it is day or night. Shankara Ghosha yearns to attain Lord Nitai's lotus feet.

 

 

Song 3

 

 

     1. O gopi-friend, He is splendid like a new dark monsoon cloud. A peacock-feather crown rests on His head. His garments are like gold His ornaments are made of jewels. His anklets gracefully jangle.

     2. (Refrain) Glory, glories to Krishna, who is Radha's lover, who is like a moon shining in Vrindavana, and whose graceful form is a trap to catch the eyes of the world's people!

     3. His eyes are like two blue lotus flowers. From their corners He fires arrows of flowers. In this way He makes the hearts and minds of the saintly peaceful beautiful gopis tremble with amorous desires.

     4. Down to His knees hangs the forest-flower garlnad, its fragrance making the black bees wild with bliss. Placing the flute to His bimba-fruit lips, Govinda dasa's master plays melodies that charm the heart.

 

 

Song 4

 

 

     1. Why do you make a delay with these superfluous decorations? I cannot tolerate even a moment's delay!

     2. The flute that brings auspiciousness to Gokula now thunders King Kamadeva's order to go to the forest.

     3. "Madhava's toenails are very splendid."

     "The moon is now rising."

     "Don't tell me again and again how I should fear my superiors! I yearn to run to Madhava!"

     4. Look! The gopis are all going to the Yamuna's bank to serve Madhava, who is always gracefully decorated with forest flowers.

 

 

Song 5

 

 

     1. O Lord who enjoyed pastimes of playing music in the forest beautiful with gentle moonlight, O Lord who, in order to see their ecstatic love for You, joked with the quickly arruved gopi girls, . . .

     2. (Refrain) . . . O Lord who danced on the Yamuna's bank, O handsome son of Nanda, O Lord who enjoyed the pastime of the auspicious, nectarean, transcendental autumn rasa-dance, all glories, all glories to You!

     3. O Lord who kissed the gopis, O passionate Lord, O Lord who, seeing their pride, disappeared, O Lord who stayed with virtuous Radha, O Lord controlled by the power of love, . . .

     4. O Lord who became intoxicated by drinking the nectar of the gopis' words, O Lord who had the gopis form a great circle, O Lord who agitated the hearts of the young demigoddessses, O Lord whose necklace moved to and fro in Your transcendental pastimes, . . .

     5. O Lord who delighted the young gopis with water pastimes, o Lord who decorated the Yamuna's bank, O Lord full of transcendental bliss, knowledge, and opulence, O perfect Lord, O eternal Lord, O pure Lord, O dark-complexioned Lord, . . .

 

 

Song 6

 

 

     1. O Lord whose transcendental form eclipses the splendor of the blossoming blue lotus floweers, O Lord who has become fair by the touch of the kunkuma from Radha's breasts, O Lord who wears a graceful peacock-feather crown, O charming Lord, O cage where the parrot of Candravali's heart is confined, . . .

     2. (Refrain) . . . O Lord decorated with gunja, O Lord expert at biting the bimba-fruit lips of the beautiful gopis passionately in love with You, all glories, all glories, all glories to You!

     3. O Lord whose flute-music makes the grass fall from does' mouths, O Lord worshiped by the sidelong glances of the saintly gopis maddened by the handsomeness of Your sweet smile, . . .

     4. O Lord whose lotus mouth is splendid with betelnuts, O Lord whose garments are magnificent like gold, O Lord whose many transcendental pastimes destroy the peaceful composure of Shiva, Brahma, Sanaka Kumara, and Sanatana Gosvami, . . .

 

 

Song 7

 

 

     1. In Vrindavana the kadamba trees offer obeisances, theior flowering branches reverently touching the ground. Bumblebees enjoy pastimes in Vrindavana, which is filled with a very sweet fragrance.

     2. Radha and Krishna stay in the place where They enjoy pastimes. How beautiful They are. Their bodies are decorated with jewel ornaments, and They are wealthy with many gem mines of intelligence and wit.

     3. Dear Giridhari holds Shrimati Radharani's right hand, and together They gracefully stroll about. The gopis shower flowers before and behind Them, and one gopi fans Them with a camara whisk.

     4. That place is filled with the aromatic pollen of the lotus, and it is made pleasantly cool by the shining of the moon. On a raised platform there, Radha and Krishna dance, holding hands, and the hairs of Their bodies standing up in ecstasy.

     5. The gopis decorate the divine couple with musk and sandalwood paste, and shower Them with aromatic flowers. Drops of perspiration make Lord Krishna's moonlike face splendid. The flute is gracefully placed against Lord Krishna's lips.

     6. With the nectar of Their jokign and laughter and the sweetness of Their charming talks, the Divine Couple fulfills all the desires of Narottama dasa. Dressed in wonderful colorful garments and Their hair decorated with flowers, the Divine Couple enjoy pastimes, enchanting the eyes of everyone.

 

 

Song 8

 

 

     1. Glistening like a topaś necklace, the gopis form a circle. In the center is Lord Krishna, the king of dancers. He glistens like a great sapphire in their midst.

     2. (Refrain) O beautiful gopi, O beautiful gopi, there is the wonderful rasa-dance pastime. Radha and Krishna are like a stationaryu lightning flash and restless monsoon cloud that together shower without stop a great monsoon of nectar.

     3. How many moons now glisten in the darkness of this night? How many moons now glisten in the darkness of this night? How many golden vines embrace how many tamala trees? One couple after another is bound in an embrace.

     4. How many lotuslike girls sing melodies in the fifth note? How many blackbee teenage boys chant graceful commentaries on the Vedas? How many such lotus girls and blackbee boys meet and sing chamring melodies together? Govinda dasa is charmed by Their music.

 

 

Song 9

 

 

     1. The music of the dampas, rababs, pakowajas, and karatalas was charming and graceful. The graceful gopis danced with wonderful footsteps. Their glances were filled with playfulness.

     2. (Refrain) Dark Lord Krishna danced with the beautiful gopis. Lord Krishna is like a mass of dark clouds. The gopis are like lightning flashes or flowering vines. How many graceful gestures did They show as They danced?

     3. As They danced Their jewel earrings swung to and fro. Perspiration trickled down Their moonlike faces. The gopis' belts and braids began to become undone.

     4. Krishna manifested many forms to stand beside each gopi. Krishna and the gopis became many couples. They yearned to taste the nectar of each other's touch. How many gopi hearts did Govinda dasa's charming and handsome master fill with passionate desires?

 

 

Song 10

 

 

     1. The youthful couple Shri Shri Radha and Krishna are my life and soul. In life or death I have no other refuge but Them.

     2. I shall install the Divine Couple on a jeweled throne in a pleasant forest of kadamba trees on the banks of the Yamuna river.

     3. When will I place aromatic sandalwood paste on the limbs of Lord Shyamasundara and Shrimati Gaurangi-devi (Radha)? When will I fan Them with a camara whisk? When will I see their moonlike faces?

     4. When will I string garlands of malati flowers and place them on the necks of the Divine Couple? When will I place betelnuts mixed with camphor in Their lotus mouths?

     5. When, following the orders of Lalita, Vishakha, and the other gopi, will I serve the lotus feet of the Divine Couple?

     6. Narottama dasa, the servant of the servant of Shri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, longs for this service to the Divine Couple.
