Janama Saphala Ta’ra
Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
janama saphala ta’ra, krishna-darashana ja’ra, bhagye haiyache eka-bara
vikashiya hrin-nayana, kari’ krishna-darashana, chade jiva cittera vikara (1)
Aho! His birth is successful who, by good fortune, has had darshana of Krishna one time,
because by seeing Him with the eyes of devotion, all the causes of transformation of
the mind (lust, greed, anger and other anarthas) go far away.
tri-bhanga-bhangima rupa, vamshi-dhari aparupa, rasamaya-nidhi, guna-shali (2)
Bedecked with garlands of forest flowers, He expertly engages in amorous enjoyment
in Vrindavana. Standing in His three-curved form and holding His flute, He thus
displays His unprecedented beauty. He is an ocean of rasa and a reservoir of all good
varna-nava-jaladhara, shire shikhi-piccha vara, alaka tilaka shobha paya,
paridhane pita-vasa, vadane madhura hasa, hena rupa jagata mataya (3)
His bodily complexion is like a fresh raincloud. He wears a peacock feather on His
head, and His forehead is beautifully decorated with candana tilaka. Wearing a golden
pitambara and smiling sweetly, He maddens the whole world with His beauty.
indranila jini’, krishna-rupakhani, heriya kadamba-mule,
mana ucatana, na cale carana, samsara gelama bhule (4)
Oh! Now that I have seen that form of Krishna, more beautiful than a blackish indranila
jewel, standing under a kadamba tree, my mind has become unsteady. I cannot move
from here and have forgotten the material world.
(sakhi he) sudhamaya, se rupa-madhuri,
dekhile nayana, haya acetana, jhare premamaya vari (5)
O sakhi, His sweet form is full of nectar. Whoever sees Him falls unconscious, and tears
of love stream from their eyes.
kiva cuda shire, kiva vamshi kare, kiva se tri-bhanga thama,
carana-kamale, amiya uchale, tahate nupura-dama (6)
Oh, how wonderful is the peacock-feather crown on His head, the flute in His hands,
His body bent in three places, and His feet, bound with anklebells that shower nectar!
sada asha kari, bhringa-rupa dhari’, carana-kamale sthana
anayase pai, krishna-guna gai, ara na bhajiba ana (7)
Bhaktivinoda says, "I always desire to become a bee so that I can eternally stay at His
lotus feet. Thus I will easily sing of Krishna’s glories and will never ask for anything
more than this."
