Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna
All glories to Swami Gaurangapada! All glories to Srilla Prabhupada!
All glories to all vaisnavas!
Srilla Narottama Thakura is singing about glories of Devotees:


Vaisnava-mahima
(Glorification of the Devotees)


1 thakura baisnaba-pada abanira su-sampada
suna bhai hana eka mana
asraya laiya bhaje tare krsna nahi tyaje
ara saba mare akarana


O brother, please hear my words with rapt attention. The lotus feet of the Vaisnavas are the most valuable treasure of this world. These Vaisnavas continually take shelter of Lord Krsna and worship Him. They never abandon their Lord. They are liberated. They are free from the cycle of birth and death.


2 baisnaba-carana-jala prema-bhaktidite bala
ara keha nahe balabanta
baisnaba-carana-renu mastake bhusana binu
ara nahi bhusanera anta


The water that has washed the lotus feet of the Vaisnavas bestows devotional service in pure love of God. Nothing else is as effective for attaining this divine love. I place dust from the lotus feet of the Vaisnavas upon my head. I wear no other ornament.


3 tirtha-jala pabitra-guna likhiyache purane
se saba bhaktira prabancana
baisnabera padodaka sama nahe ei saba
jate haya banchita purana


The purifying power of the waters at the various holy places of pilgrimage is described in the Puranas, although this is something of a deceptive trick. Actually there is not anything as purifying as the water that has washed the lotus feet of the Vaisnavas. This water fulfills all desires.


4 baisnaba-sangete mana anandita anuksana
sada haya krsna-para-sanga
dina narottama kande hiya dhairya nahi bandhe
mora dasa kena haila bhanga


Moment after moment my mind finds pleasure in the association of the Vaisnavas. I always seek out the company of those who are devoted to Lord Krsna. Poor-hearted Narottama dasa breaks down and cries. How has this fallen condition come upon me?


Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna
Let us always remember this song and praise devotees of Lord's devotees!
