Shri Rupanugatya-Mahatmya

The Glories of Following Shrila Rupa Gosvami

Shrila Narottama dasa Thakura

 

shuniyachi sadhu-mukhe bole sarva-jana

shri-rupa-kripaya mile yugala-carana (1)

 

From the sadhus’ lips I have heard it told to everyone - by Shri Rupa’s mercy one can

attain Shri Yugala’s lotus feet.

 

ha! ha! prabhu sanatana gaura-parivara

sabe mili’ vancha-purna karaha amara (2)

 

Alas, Sanatana Prabhu! O eternal associates of Gauranga! Only when you give your

mercy [then Shri Rupa will give his mercy], all my heart’s desires be fulfilled.

 

shri rupera kripa jena ama prati haya

se pada ashraya ja’ra, sei mahashaya (3)

 

Shri Rupa Gosvami, I want only your mercy. He who takes your lotus feet as his shelter

is mahashaya, a great personality.

 

prabhu lokanatha kabe sange laiya jabe

shri rupera pada-padme more samarpibe (4)

 

When will my holy master Lokanatha Svami [who is also master of the whole world]

take me with him and offer me at the lotus feet of Shri Rupa Manjari?

 

hena ki haibe mora - narma-sakhi-gane

anugata narottame karibe shasane (5)

 

When will that day come, when Radha’s dearmost narma sakhis will give direct

instructions to Narottama, accepting him as their intimate follower (anugata)?
