Jaya Jaya Harinama

Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

 

jaya jaya harinama, cid-anandamrita-dhama, para-tattva akshara-akara

nija-jane kripa kari’, nama-rupe avatari’, jive daya karile apara (1)

 

All glories to the holy name, the storehouse of the nectar of divine knowledge and

bliss, who is none other than the Supreme Truth, Bhagavan Shri Krishna. To shower

mercy on His devotees, He has descended in the form of sound, showing vast compassion

for all jivas.

 

jaya hari-krishna-nama, jaga-jana-suvishrama, sarva-jana-manasa ranjana,

muni-vrinda nirantara, je namera samadara, kari’ gaya bhariya vadana (2)

 

All glories to the many names of Hari and Krishna. Shri Nama is the sublime shelter for all

living entities, taking them out from the cycle of birth and death and filling their

hearts with delight. The munis sing the holy names incessantly with great honor and

joy.

 

ohe krishna-namakshara, tumi sarva-shakti-dhara, jivera kalyana-vitarane

toma vina bhava-sindhu, uddharite nahi bandhu, asiyacha jiva-uddharane (3)

 

O syllables of krishna-nama, You possess all powers in order to bestow auspiciousness

upon the jivas. Coming for our deliverance, You are the sole friend to rescue us from

the ocean of birth and death.

 

ache tapa jive jata, tumi saba kara hata, helaya tomare eka-bara

dake yadi kona jana, ha’ye dina akincana, nahi dekhi anya pratikara (4)

 

Whatever miseries are afflicting the jivas, You fully dispell if one even neglectfully

chants Your name just once, feeling himself insignificant and destitute and seeing no

other remedy for his relief.

 

tava svalpa-sphurti paya, ugra-tapa dure jaya, linga-bhanga haya anayase

bhakativinoda kaya, jaya harinama jaya, pade thaki tuwa pada-ashe (5)

 

A momentary vision of You makes all sorts of terrible miseries disappear. The subtle

body is easily destroyed (and You establish the jiva in his svarupa). Bhaktivinoda

says, "O Harinama, all glories to You. I perpetually fall at Your lotus feet."
