‘Radha-Krishna’ Bal Bal
Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
‘radha-krishna’ bal bal bala re sabai
(ei) shiksha diya, saba nadiya, phirche nece’ gaura-nitai
(miche) mayara vashe, jaccha bhese’, khaccha habudubu, bhai (1)
Everyone, chant, chant, chant “Radha-Krishna.” Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and
Nityananda Prabhu are dancing, roaming throughout Navadvipa and instructing all.
O brothers! All of you chant this holy name of Radha-Krishna. You have uselessly come
under the control of maya, sometimes floating and sometimes drowning in the ocean
of material happiness and distress.
(jiva) krishna-dasa, e vishvasa, karle to’ ara duhkha nai
(krishna) balbe jabe, pulaka ha’be, jharbe akhi, bali tai (2)
But if you have faith that the jiva is a servant of Krishna, you will have no more sorrows.
Then if you utter krishna-nama, your body will shiver in ecstasy and tears will flow from
(radha) krishna bala, sange cala, ei-matra bhiksha cai
(jaya) sakala vipada, bhaktivinoda balena, jakhana o-nama gai (3)
Bhaktivinoda says, “O brothers, chant radha-krishna-nama with the Vaishnavas. This is
all I beg of you. When you chant Their names, all dangers will fly far away."
