Shri Tulasi Parikrama and Arati

Shri Shrimad Bhakti Prajnana Keshava Gosvami Maharaja

 

namo namah tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah)

radha-krishna-nitya-seva - ei abhilashi (1)

 

je tomara sharana laya, sei krishna-seva paya,

kripa kari kara tare vrindavana-vasi

tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah) (2)

 

tomara carane dhari, more anugata karií,

gaurahari-seva-magna rakha diva-nishi

tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah) (3)

 

dinera ei abhilasha, mayapure dio vasa,

angete makhiba sada dhama dhuli rashi

tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah) (4)

 

tomara arati lagií, dhupa, dipa, pushpa magi,

mahima bakhani ebe hao more khushi

tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah) (5)

 

jagatera jata phula, kabhu nahe samatula,

sarva-tyaji krishna tava patra manjari vilasi

tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah) (6)

 

ogo vrinde maharani! krishna-bhakti pradayini!

tomara padapa-tale, deva-rishi kutuhale,

sarva-tirtha laye tara hana adhivasi

tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah) (7)

 

shri keshava ati dina, sadhana-bhajana-hina,

tomara ashraye sada namanande bhasi

 

tulasi krishna-preyasi (namo namah) (8)

 

O Shrimati Tulasi-devi! Desiring to enter the eternal service of Shri Radha and Krishna,

I repeatedly offer pranama to you, who are so dear to Shri Krishna. (1)

 

One who takes shelter of you attains the service of Shri Krishna. Being merciful, you

make him a resident of Vrindavana. (2)

 

Allow me to catch hold of your lotus feet. May you make me your intimate follower,

and day and night keep me immersed in the service of Shri Gaurahari. (3)

 

I am fallen but I desire that you make me a resident of Mayapura where I will always

smear the dust of the dhama on my body. (4)

 

Performing your arati with incense, ghee lamp, and flowers, I will derive great

happiness from describing your glories. (5)

 

Of all the flowers within the universe, none is your equal for Shri Krishna, putting aside

all of them, performs pastimes only with your leaves and manjaris. (6)

 

O Vrinde Maharani! Bestower of krishna-bhakti! All the demigods, sages and holy

places joyfully reside at your feet. (7)

 

Devoid of sadhana-bhajana, Shri Keshava takes shelter of you and attains unbroken

namananda. (8)
