From Gitavali

by Srila Bhativinode Thakura


1) gay gora madhur sware

    hare krsna hare krsna krsna krsna hare hare

    hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare


Lord Gaurasundara sings in a very sweet voice

"Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare

 Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare"


2) grhe thako, vane thako, sada 'hari' bole' dako

    sukhe duhkhe bhulo na'ko, vadane hari-nam koro re


Whether you are a householder or a sannyasi, constantly chant "Hari, Hari"

Don't forget this chanting, whether you are in a happy condition or a distressful one.

Just fill your lips with the hari-nama


3) maya-jale baddha ho 'ye, acho miche kaja lo 'ye

    ekhona cetana pe 'ye, 'radha-madhav' nam bolo re


You are bound up in the network of maya and forced to toil fruitlessly

Now you have obtained full consciousness in the human form of life,

so chant the names of "Radha-Madhava"


4) jivnana hoilo sesa, na bhajile hrsikesa

    bhaktivinodopadesa, ekbar nam-rase mato re


Your life may end at any moment, and you have not served the Lord of the senses, Hrsikesa.

Take this advice of Bhaktivinoda Thakura: "Just once, relish the nectar of the Holy Name!"
