Sakala Vaishnava Gosai

Shri Radha-Mohana dasa

 

sakala vaishnava gosai daya kara more

dante trina dhari’ kahe e dina pamare (1)

 

With a straw between my teeth, this very wretched and fallen person is petitioning all

the Vaishnavas and Gosvamis, “Please give me your mercy.”

 

shri guru-carana ara shri krishna-chaitanya

pada-padma paoyaiya more kara dhanya (2)

 

Shri Guru, the Vaishnavas, and Shri Krishna-Chaitanya (and Nityananda Prabhu) should give

me shelter at their lotus feet and make me fortunate.

 

toma’ sabara karuna vine iha prapti naya

visheshe ayogya mui kahila nishcaya (3)

 

Without receiving the mercy from all of the Vaishnavas, I will be bereft of shelter at the

lotus feet of Gaura-Nitai. I know that I am totally unqualified.

 

vancha-kalpa-taru hao karuna-sagara

ei ta’ barasa mui dhariye antara (4)

 

All the Vaishnavas are vancha kalpa-taru (wish-fulfilling trees) and an ocean of mercy.

It is my deepest hope that the Vaishnavas will give me their mercy so that I can thus

attain the lotus feet of Mahaprabhu.

 

guna-lesha nahi more aparadhera sima

ama’ uddhariya loke dekhao mahima (5)

 

I have no good qualities and I have committed uncountable offenses, but if you will

deliver me (give me bhakti), then everyone will come to know of your glories.

 

nama-sankirtane ruci ara prema-dhana

e radha-mohane deha’ haiya sa-karuna (6)

 

I am praying for taste in nama-sankirtana and for the wealth of prema. Then this

Radha-mohana dasa will realize your supreme mercy.
