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.”
