Kabe Shri Chaitanya More
Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
kabe shri chaitanya more karibena daya
kabe ami paiba vaishnava-pada-chaya (1)
Oh, when will Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu bestow His mercy upon me so that I will be
able to obtain the shelter of the lotus feet of the Vaishnavas?
kabe ami chadiba e vishayabhimana
kabe vishnu-jane ami kariba sammana (2)
When will I renounce my enjoying spirit and then be able to properly honor the
gala-vastra kritanjali vaishnava-nikate
dante trina kari’ dadaiba nishkapate (3)
In a very humble, submissive mood and without duplicity, I will stand before the
Vaishnavas with cloth around my neck, folded hands, and a straw in my teeth.
kadiya kadiya janaiba duhkha-grama
samsara-anala haite magiba vishrama (4)
Bitterly weeping, I will understand the miseries resulting from indulgence, and I will
beg for relief from the blazing fire of material existence.
shuniya amara duhkha vaishnava thakura
ama’ lagi’ krishne avedibena pracura (5)
When the venerable Vaishnavas hear of my sufferings, they will petition the Lord
profusely on my behalf.
vaishnavera avedane krishna dayamaya
e hena pamara prati ha’bena sa-daya (6)
In response to their prayer, the all-merciful Shri Krishna will then display His compassion
towards this wicked person.
vinodera nivedana vaishnava-carane
kripa kari’ sange laha ei akincane (7)
Bhaktivinoda prays to the lotus feet of the Vaishnavas, “O Vaishnava Thakura,
mercifully please give your shelter and association to this destitute person.”
