Emana Durmati

Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

 

(prabhu he!) emana durmati, samsara-bhitare, padiya achinu ami

tava nija-jana, kona mahajane, pathaiya dile tumi (1)

 

O Lord, I am so unfortunate that I have fallen into this material world, but one of Your

pure and elevated devotees has come to deliver me.

 

daya kari’ more, patita dekhiya, kahila amare giya

‘ohe dina-jana, shuna bhala katha, ullasita ha’be hiya (2)

 

Seeing me so fallen and wretched, he took pity on me, saying, “O humbled soul, listen

to this good news which will bring joy to your heart.

 

tomare tarite, shri krishna chaitanya, navadvipe avatara

toma’ hena kata, dina hina jane, karilena bhava-para (3)

 

"Shri Krishna Chaitanya has appeared in the land of Navadvipa to deliver you. He has

already safely conducted so many other suffering souls across the ocean of birth and

death.

 

vedera pratijna, rakhibara tare, rukma-varna vipra-suta

mahaprabhu name, nadiya mataya, sange bhai avadhuta (4)

 

"Fulfilling the promise of the Vedas, the son of a brahmana, bearing the name

Mahaprabhu and of a golden complexion, has descended with His brother, the

avadhuta Nityananda. Together They have overwhelmed all of Nadiya with divine

ecstasy.

 

nanda-suta jini, chaitanya gõsai, nija-nama kari’ dana

tarila jagat, tumi-o jaiya, laha nija-paritrana (5)

 

“Shri Chaitanya, who is directly Krishna, the son of Nanda, has saved the world by freely

distributing His own holy name. Go also and receive your deliverance.”

 

se katha shuniya, asiyachi, natha! tomara carana-tale

bhakativinoda, kadiya kadiya, apana-kahini bale (6)

 

O Lord, hearing those words, Bhaktivinoda has come weeping to Your lotus feet and

tells the story of his life.
