Ki-Rupe Paiba Seva

Shrila Narottama dasa Thakura

 

ki-rupe paiba seva mui duracara

shri-guru-vaishnave rati na haila amara (1)

 

Alas, I am so fallen and wretched that not even a drop of affection for shri-guruvaishnava

comes in my heart. Then how will I get the service of Bhagavan?

 

ashesha mayate mana magana haila

vaishnavete lesha-matra rati na janmila (2)

 

My mind is always absorbed in material pursuits, not allowing me to develop even the

slightest affection for the Vaishnavas.

 

vishaye bhuliya andha hainu diva-nishi

gale phasa dite phire maya se pishaci (3)

 

Day and night I am bound by the witch of maya with a noose of fruitive desires around

my neck. Hence blinded, I uselessly serve materialistic persons.

 

ihare kariya jaya chadana na jaya

sadhu-kripa vina ara nahika upaya (4)

 

Thus engaged, I pass my life, unable to get free. I see that there is no other remedy than

the mercy of the Vaishnavas.

 

adosha-darashi prabho! patita uddhara

ei-bara narottame karaha nistara (5)

 

Narottama dasa prays, O venerable Vaishnavas, you never see the faults in others and

are renowned as the saviors of the fallen, so please save me this time.
