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."
