Shrila Locana dasa Thakura
nitai-gaura-nama, anandera dhama, jei jana nahi laya
tare yama-raya, dhare la’ye jaya, narake dubaya taya (1)
The holy names of Nitai and Gaura are the abode of all jubilation. Those who never
utter these names are taken by Yama Maharaja and immersed in the hellish planets.
tulasira hara, na pare je chara, yamalaye vasa ta’ra
tilaka dharana, na kare je jana, vrithaya janama ta’ra (2)
Those who never wear tulasi neckbeads take their permanent residence in the abode
of Yama Maharaja, and those who never adorn their foreheads with tilaka live their
lives in vain.
na laya harinama, vidhi ta’re vama, pamara pashanda-mati
vaishnava-sevana, na kare je jana, ki ha’be tahara gati (3)
Those who never chant harinama have an unfavorable destiny. They are fallen and
their stone-like hearts are filled with deceit. And what will be the destination of those
who never serve the Vaishnavas?
guru-mantra sara, kara ei bara, vrajete haibe vasa
tamo-guna ja’be, sattva-guna pa’be, haibe krishnera dasa (4)
Now the time has come to receive diksha from Shri Guru. If one chants these mantras
carefully, one will come to live in Vraja forever. The mode of ignorance will go,
goodness will come in the heart, and one will become the eternal servant of Krishna.
e dasa locana, bale anukshana, (nitai) gaura-guna gao sukhe
ei rase ja’ra, rati na haila, cuna kali ta’ra mukhe (5)
This Locana dasa instructs everyone to always chant Gaura-Nitai’s holy names. Those
who have no affection for gaura-rasa will be publicly defamed - their faces will be
covered with lime and black tar.
