Dalalera-gita

by Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

1) boro sukher khabor gai
surabhi-kunjete namera hatta khule'che (khoda nitai)

1. I am singing news of happy holy tidings. Nitai has opened a market-place of the holy name in Surabhi-kunja.

2) boro mojara kotha taya
sraddha-mulye suddha-nama sei hatete bikaya

2. He is selling the pure holy name in that market-place for the price of only one's faith.

3) jata bhakta-brinda basi'
adhikari dekhe' nama becche daro kasi

3. Lord Nityananda, seeing all the devotees becoming attracted, is bargaining with them and selling them the holy name.

4) jadi nama kinbe, bhai
amara sange calo, mahajanera kache jai

4. O brother, if you want the holy name then come with me. Come to that great soul, Nityananda.

5) tumi kinbe krishna-nama
dasturi loibo ami, purna ha'be kama

5. You'll get the name of Krishna. I'll take my commission and all of our desires will be fulfilled.

6) boro dayala nityananda
sraddha-matra lo'ye den parama-ananda

6. Lord Nityananda is very merciful. Taking only one's faith, He gives the highest ecstasy.

7) ek-bar dekhle cakhe jala
ngaura' bole' nitai den sakala sambala

7. If He sees only once tears in the eyes while chanting the name Gaura, then He gives everything to that person.

8) den suddha krishna-siksha
jati, dhana, bidya, bala na kore apekha

8. He gives the pure teachings of Krishna to everyone not caring for their birth, wealth, knowledge, or strength.

9) amani chare maya-jala
grihe thako, vane thako, na thake janjal

9. Now, giving up the illusory snare of Maya, either remain in household life or in the forest as a sannyasi, no more troubles remain.

10) ara naiko kalir bhoy
acandale den nama, nitai doya-moya

10. There is no more fear of the age of Kali. The merciful Nitai gives the holy name to even the candalas.

11) bhaktivinoda daki' koy
nitai-carana bina ara nahi asraya

11. Bhaktivinoda calls out, "Except for the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda, there is no other shelter!"
