Kali-Kukkura Kadana

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,

bhakata-samuha-cita-cora (2)

 

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.

 

nadiya-shashadhara, mayapura-ishvara,

nama-pravartana sura

grihijana-shikshaka, nyasikula-nayaka,

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.

 

sarvabhauma-shodhana, gajapati-tarana,

ramananda-poshana vira

rupananda-vardhana, sanatana-palana,

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).

 

vraja-rasa-bhavana, dushtamata-shatana,

kapati-vighatana kama

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.
