Sri Navdvipastakam

by Srila Rupa Gosvami

 

sri gauda-dese sura-dirghikayas

tire 'ti-ramye pura-punya-mayyah

lasantam ananda-bharena nityam

tam sri navadvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering Sri Navadvipa-dhama, the beutiful , virtuous land of Gaurasundara on the charming bank of the Bhghirathi. It is eternally shining and full of bliss.

 

yasmai paravyoma vadanti kecit

kecic ca goloka itirayanti

vadanti vrindavanam eva taj-jnas

tam sri navadvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering Sri Navadvipa-dhama. Some say it is the spiritual sky, Vaikunthaloka; others say it is the transcendental realm of Goloka; but those who have realized the truth know it as Sri Vrindavana-dhama.

 

yah sarva-diksu sphuritaih susitair

nana-drumaih supavanaih paritah

sri-gaura-madhyahna-vihara-patrais

tam sri navapvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering that Sri Navadvipa-dhama, which is pervaded by cool, gentle breezes, and where sublime groves with many kinds of shade trees manifested, providing the setting for Gaurasundara's midday lilas

 

sri svar-nadi yatra vihara-bhumihi

suvarna-sopana-nibaddha-tira

vyaptormibibhir gaura-vagaha-rupais

tam sri navadvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering that Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where the celestial Mandakini Ganga flows with great pleasure. Her Banks have golden ghatas, and she becomes full with high waves, dancing in joy when Gaurasundara takes His bath in her waters.

 

mahanty anantani grhani yatra

sphuranti haimani manoharani

pratyalayam yam srayate sada sris

tam sri navadvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering that Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where there are uncountable beautiful golden houses in which Laksmi-devi always resides with the devotees. These houses are so transcendentally charming that they automatically steal the mind.

 

vidya-daya ksanti-mukhaih samastaih

sadbhir gunair yatra janah prapannah

samstuyamana rsi-deva-siddhais

tam sri navadvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering that Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where the perfected souls are ornamented by knowledge, compassion, tolerance, sacrifice and all transcendental qualities, and who are glorified by the rsis, demigods and siddhas.

 

ysayantare misra-purandarasya

sananda-samyaika padam nivasah

sri-gaura-janmadika-liladhyas

tam sri navadvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering that Sri Navadvipa-dhama, whose Purandara Jagannatha Misra stays with great pleasure, where all verieties of bliss come to reside (nivasa) in Gaurasundara's lotus feet, and where he performed his birth and other sweet pastimes.

 

gauro bhraman yatra harih sva-bhaktaih

sankirtana-prema-bharena sarv am

nimajjayaty ullasad-unmadabdhau

tam sri navadvipam aham smarami

 

I am remembering that Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where, chanting the holy names with great love, Gaurahari roamed with His own devotees, submerging them in the ocean of ujjvala-rasa-prema.

 

etan navadvipa-vicintanadhyam

padyastakam prita-manah pathed yah

srimac-chaci-nandana-pada-padme

sudurlabham prema samapnuyat sah

 

That person who daily recites and remembers with affection this astakam to Sri Navadvipa-dhama achieves the very rare jewel of prema and the lotus feet of my Sri Sacinandana
