Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
nadiya-godrume nityananda mahajana
patiyache nama-hatta jivera karana (1)
In the land of Nadiya, on the island of Godruma, the magnanimous Nityananda Prabhu
has opened a marketplace of the holy name for the deliverance of all fallen souls.
(shraddhavan jana he, shraddhavan jana he)
prabhura ajnaya, bhai, magi ei bhiksha
bala krishna, bhaja krishna, kara krishna-siksha (2)
There He calls out, “O men of faith, by the order of Shri Gauranga, O brothers, I beg this
one request: Chant ‘Krishna!’ Serve and worship Krishna, and follow His teachings.
aparadha-shunya ha’ye laha krishna-nama
krishna mata, krishna pita, krishna dhana-prana (3)
“Being free of offense, chant the holy name of Krishna. Krishna is our mother, our father
and the treasure of our life.
krishnera samsara kara chadi’ anacara
jive daya, krishna-nama - sarva-dharma-sara (4)
“Carry on your worldly duties but in relation to Krishna, and give up sinful behavior.
Show compassion to all fallen souls by loudly chanting the holy name of Krshna - this
is the essence of all forms of religion.”
