The Vine of Love
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.
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?
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.
yada tada madhava yatra yatra
gayanti ye ye tava nama-lilah
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.
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.
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.
netrarbudasyaiva bhavantu karna-
nasa-rasajna hrdayarbudam va
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.
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.
