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
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."
