Ei-Bara Karuna Kara

Shrila Narottama dasa Thakura

 

ei-bara karuna kara vaishnava gosai

patita-pavana toma vine keha nai (1)

 

Vaishnava Gosai, please give me your mercy this time! You are patita-pavana, purifier

of the fallen. There is no one except you to save us!

 

kahara nikate gele papa dure jaya

emana dayala prabhu keva katha paya? (2)

 

All sins go away in your association. Where shall we find a master as merciful you?

 

gangara parasha haile pashcate pavana

darshane pavitra kara - ei tomara guna (3)

 

After touching the Ganga one becomes purified, but your quality is such that just the

sight of you purifies one of his sins!

 

hari-sthane aparadhe tare harinama

toma sthane aparadhe nahika edana (4)

 

Offenses committed at the lotus feet of Shri Hari are absolved by harinama. But for

offenses against you there is absolutely no means of deliverance!

 

tomara hridaye sada govinda vishrama

govinda kahena, ‘mama vaishnava parana’ (5)

 

Govinda is always resting in your heart. Thus, Govinda says, “The Vaishnavas are My

life and soul!”

 

prati-janme kari asha caranera dhuli

narottame kara daya apanara bali’ (6)

 

Narottama dasa prays, “In every birth I am hoping for the dust of your lotus feet. Please

be compassionate to me, considering me your own.”
