Poems blogging is continuing...

Here is one wonderfull song of Shrilla Bhaktivinoda Thakura from his fameous book Saranagati. It is very inspiring to read about hearth desire of Shrilla Bhaktivinoda; and we shoud also aspire to attain such perfection.

 

Gurudeva Kabe Tava Karuna

 

(1)

gurudev!

kabe tava karuna-prakse

shri-gauranga-lila,  hoya nitya-tattwa,

ei drdha visvase

'hari hari' boli',  godruma-kanane,

bhromibo darsana-ase

 

(2)

nitai, gauranga,  adwaita, shrivasa,

gadadhara, panca-jana

krishna-nama-rase,  bhasabe jagat,

kori' maha-sankirtana

 

(3)

nartana-vilasa,  mrdanga-vadana,

sunibo apana-kane

dekhiya dekhiya,  se lila-madhuri,

bhasibo premera bane

 

(4)

na dekhi' abara,  se lila-ratana,

kandi ha gauranga! boli'

amare visayi,  pagala boliya,

angete dibeka dhuli

 

TRANSLATION

 

1) Gurudeva! Lord Gauranga's transcendental pastimes are eternal realities. I await the day when, with this firm faith manifested by your mercy, I will wander through the groves of Godruma, chanting "Hari! Hari!" and hoping to behold those pastimes.

 

2) The Panca-tattva - Nitai, Gauranga, Advaita, Shrivasa and Gadadhara - will flood the entire universe with the intoxiacting nectar of the holy name of Shri Krishna by performing a maha-sankirtana.

 

3) In my ears I will hear the sounds of dancing and the playing of the mrdangas. By constantly beholding the sweetness and beauty of that pastime of Lord Gauranga's, I will swim in the flood tide of divine love.

 

4) Materialists will throw dirt at my body and proclaim me thoroughly mad. For being again bereft of seeing the jewel of that pastime, I shall weep and cry out, "O my Lord Gauranga!"
