The Vine of Love

 

1

deharbudani bhagavan yugapat prayaccha

vaktrabudani ca pnah pratideham eva

jihvarbudani krpaya prativaktram eva

nrtyantu tesu tava matha gunarbudani

 

Please give me millions of bodies and millions of mouths in each body.  By your mercy place millions of tongues in each mouth.  O Lord, may Your millions of transcendental qualities dance on those tongues.

 

2

kim atmana yatra na deha-kotyo

dehena kim yatra na vaktra-kotyah

vaktrena kim yatra na koti-jihvah

kim jihvaya yatra na nama-kotyah

 

What is the use of a soul that does not have millions of bodies?  What is the use of a body that does not have millions of mouths?  What is the use of a mouth that does not have millions of tongues?  What is the use of a tongue that does not chant Your millions of names?

 

3

atmastu nityam sata-deha-varti

dehas tu nathastu sahasra-vaktrah

vaktram sada rajatu laksa-jihvam

grnatu jihva tava nama-kotim

 

O Lord, may I perpetually have hundreds of bodies and may each body have thousands of mouths.  May each mouth have millions of tongues, and may each tongue chant millions of Your Holy Names.

 

4

yada tada madhava yatra yatra

gayanti ye ye tava nama-lilah

tatraiva karnayuta-dharyamanas

tas te sudha nityam aham dhayani

 

O Madhava, whenever, wherever, or whoever chants Your names and pastimes, there may I with millions of ears eternally drink Your nectar.

 

5

karnayutasyaiva bhavantu laksa-

kotyo rasajna bhagavams tadaiva

yenaiva lilah srnavani nityam

tenaiva gayani tatah sukham me

 

May I have millions of ears and millions upon millions of tongues.  Then, O Lord, I will eternally and happily hear and chant Your pastimes.

 

6

krt-kotir asya rasanarbudam syat

srutvaiva drstva tava rupa-sindhum

alingya madhuryam aho dhayani

 

May I have millions of ears, millions of eyes, millions of hearts and minds, and millions of tongues.  Hearing about, seeing, and embracing the ocean of Your handsomeness, I will drink its sweetness.

 

7

nasa-rasajna hrdayarbudam va

saundarya-sausvarya-sugandha-pura-

madhurya-samslesa-rasanubhutyai

 

May I have millions of eyes, ears, noses, tongues and chests, so that I may continually taste the nectar of Your handsomeness, Your sweet sounds, sweet fragrance, and Your embrace.

 

8

tvat-parsva-gatyai pada-kotir astu

sevam vidhatum mama hasta-kotih

tam siksitum syad api buddhi-kotir

etan varan me bhagavan prayaccha

 

May I have millions of feet to go to Your side.  May I have millions of hands to serve You.  May I have millions of intelligences to teach that service.  O Lord, please grant me these boons.
