Shri Gaura-Nityanandera Daya
The Mercy of Shri Gaura-Nityananda
Shrila Locana dasa Thakura
parama karuna, pahu dui-jana, nitai gauracandra
saba avatara-sara shiromani, kevala ananda-kanda (1)
The two Lords Nitai Gaurachandra are supremely merciful. They are the essence and
crown jewels of all avataras and the very source of bliss.
bhaja bhaja bhai, chaitanya-nitai, sudridha vishvasa kari’
vishaya chadiya, se rase majiya, mukhe bala hari hari (2)
My dear brother, with firm faith just worship Chaitanya-Nitai. Renouncing all material
enjoyment, always engage your mouth in chanting “Hari, Hari!” and you will drown
in Their bhakti-rasa.
dekha ore bhai, tri-bhuvane nai, emana dayala-data
pashu pakhi jhure, pashana vidare, shuni’ ja’ra guna-gatha (3)
O brother, just see! In all the three worlds there is no one else as merciful as Them.
Hearing Their glories (especially Their mercy) sung, the animals and birds cry tears
of love, and stones melt.
samsare majiya, rahili padiya, se pade nahila asha
apana karama, bhunjaye shamana, kahaye locana-dasa (4)
Locana dasa laments, “I am always so absorbed in my material enjoyment that no
desire is coming in my heart to worship Gaura-Nitai. That I get no inspiration to do
bhajana is Yamaraja’s punishment for my past sinful activities."
