Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
kali-kukkura kadana yadi cao (he)
kali-yuga pavana, kali-bhaya-nashana,
shri shaci-nandana gao (he) (1)
O brothers, if you wish to save yourselves from the dog-like Age of Kali, then sing the
name of Shri Shaci-nandana, the savior of this age who nullifies the fear of Kali.
gadadhara-madana, nita’yera prana-dhana,
advaitera prapujita gora
nimai vishvambhara, shrinivasa-ishvara,
Gora is the delight of Gadadhara Pandita, very life of Nityananda Prabhu, and the
worshipable lord of Advaita and Shrinivasa Acaryas. He has many names like Nimai
and Vishvambhara, and He steals the hearts of His devotees.
madhava radhabhava-pura (3)
He is the moon of Nadiya and the lord of Mayapura, who advented to manifest the
holy name. He taught proper conduct for grihastas and is the nayaka (Hero) of all
sannyasis. He is Madhava, endowed with the bhava and kanti of Shri Radha.
hari-dasa-modana dhira (4)
He purified Sarvabhauma, rescuing him from the claws of Mayavada, and delivered
King Prataparudra. The heroic Mahaprabhu nurtured the bhakti of Raya Ramananda,
increased the bliss of Shri Rupa and maintained Shri Sanatana. As a sober sannyasi He
delighted Haridasa Thakura (by daily giving him darshana).
shuddha bhakta-palana, shushka-jnana-tadana,
chala-bhakti-dushana rama (5)
He is absorbed in vraja-rasa. As the transcendental Kamadeva, He chastises the evilminded
and destroys deceit. As Radha-ramana Rama, He nourishes His pure devotees,
drives away dry impersonalism, and removes all imitations of bhakti.
