Shri Tulasi Kirtana

 

namo namah tulasi krishna-preyasi

(vraje) radha-krishna-seva paba ei abhilashi (1)

 

O Tulasi, beloved of Krishna, I repeatedly offer pranama to you. My cherished desire

is to attain the seva of Shri Radha-Krishna Yugala-kishora.

 

je tomara sharana laya, tara vancha purna haya

kripa kari’ kara tare vrindavana-vasi (2)

 

All the desires of whoever takes shelter of you are fulfilled. Being so merciful, you

grant him residence in Vrindavana.

 

mora ei abhilasha, vilasa-kunje dio vasa

nayane heriba sada yugala-rupa-rashi (3)

 

I intensely desire that you please make me a resident of the pleasure groves (vilasakunja)

of Shri Vrindavana. Then I will be able to behold the beautiful pastimes of

Radha-Krishna.

 

ei nivedana dhara, sakhira anugata koro

seva-adhikara diya kara nija dasi (4)

 

I am presenting my heart-felt prayer that you make me a follower of the sakhis, thus

giving me the privilege of Radha-Krishna’s seva and making me your own maidservant.

 

dina krishna-dase kaya, ei jena mora haya

shri-radha-govinda-preme sada jena bhasi (5)

 

This fallen Krishnadasa begs to always bathe in the prema for Shri Radha and Govinda.
