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.
