‘Dayala Nitai Chaitanya’ Bole’

Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

 

‘dayala nitai chaitanya’ bole’ nac re amara mana

nac re amara mana, nac re amara mana (1)

 

O my mind, chant “dayala (merciful) nitai chaitanya” and just dance! O my mind,

dance!

 

(emana dayala to’ nai he, mara khe’ye prema deya)

(ore) aparadha dure ja’be, pa’be prema-dhana

(o name aparadha-vicara to’ nai he)

(takhana) krishna-name ruci ha’be, ghucibe bandhana (2)

 

Such a merciful personality as Nityananda Prabhu, who bestows prema even after

being beaten, is not to be found anywhere. Prema can come after offenses are overcome,

but in chanting of the names Chaitanya-Nitai, there is no consideration of offenses.

Once taste for krishna-nama comes, material bondage breaks.

 

(krishna-name anuraga to’ ha’be he)

(takhana) anayase saphala ha’be jivera jivana

(krishna-rati vina jivana to’ miche he)

(sheshe) vrindavane radha-shyamera pa’be darashana

(gaura-kripa ho’le he) (3)

 

When there is deep love for krishna-nama, then easily one’s life becomes successful.

Without attachment to Krishna, life is simply false. With the mercy of Gaurasundara one

can obtain the vision of Radha-Shyama at the end of life.
