Gaya Gora Madhura Svare

Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

gaya gora madhura svare

 

hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare

hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare (1)

 

Shri Gaurasundara sings in a very sweet voice: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna

Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.

 

grihe thaka, vane thaka, sada ‘hari’ bale daka,

sukhe duhkhe bhula na’ka, vadane harinama kara re (2)

 

Whether you are a householder or sannyasi, constantly chant, “Hari! Hari!” Do not

forget this chanting, whether you are in a happy condition or a distressful one. Just fill

your lips with harinama.

 

maya-jale baddha ha’ye, acha miche kaja la’ye,

ekhana-o cetana peye, ‘radha-madhava’ nama bala re (3)

 

You are bound up in the network of maya and are forced to toil fruitlessly. Now you

have obtained full consciousness, so chant the names of Radha-Madhava.

 

jivana haila shesha, na bhajile hrishikesha

bhaktivinodopadesha, ekabara nama-rase mata re (4)

 

Your life may end at any moment, and you have not served the Lord of the senses,

Hrshikesha. Take this advice of Bhaktivinoda: “Just once, relish the nectar of the holy

name!”
