Nitaai Gaura Swan Song
Hail Thee Nitaai Gaura Naama! Kali Yuga's Sole Resort
For the ship of life, foul weather's safest Port.
Without Thee there's no other Support to seek,
With my heart and soul, honestly to Thee I speak....1
O Nitaai Gaura Naama! In Thee I take refuge with all my heart
Tho' in singing Thy Glories, Upanishads play their part.
Yet unable are they to do justice to Thy greatness,
Thou art e'er being sung by Yogis in their sedateness....2
O Syllable Form of God! Thou art always sought,
For Thou appeasest e'en those who in worldliness are caught.
Thou art e'er being sung by sages with bright prospect,
As Thou purifest e'en a sinner, uttering Thee in disrespect....3
O Naama Bhagavaana Sun! Nitaai and Gaura's Holy Name
Who can aptly describe Thy enduring Fame?
Thy dim reflection, dispelling Universe's ignorance,
Confers on all the boon of Krishna love's affluence.....4
The deeds of past births, which the Vedas call,
Destiny, remain undestroyed unless endured by all.
Yet, unendur'd, Thy dim reflection destroys them as well,
Tho' even meditation on Brahman fails to save us from their spell....5
All Victory to Thee! O Nitaai Gaura Naama - the Fount of Divine Bliss!
Meditation's pains and arduous rituals Thou dost dismiss.
O Harbinger of Gaura's Feet! howsoe'er Thou art spoken,
My faith in Thy Nectar will always remain unshaken......6
O Nitaai Gaura Naama, Thou art both the Means and End to me.
Make me Thy eternal slave till the soul in this body be.
Without Thy mercy there is no succour for me!
If Thou deniest my wish, what will my fate be?......7
O Nitaai Gaura Naama, except for Thee there is none I can call my own,
O where should I go, if Thou dost me disown?
In sins vile, I am sunk o'er head and shoulders,
And ruefully I am aflame in their smolders.......8
O Nitaai Gaura Nama, calling Thee aloud unmotivated,
My heart by Your glamour is fully captivated.
For Thou diffusest resplendent Love around,
My soul by Thy offenseless Kindness is spellbound.......9
Names of Nitaai Gaura are the richest possession of mankind,
Before which Fate's cruellest blows fail to grind.
Death, as it must come, comes to all ere long,
Nitaai Gaura Naama in birth and death is my swan song......10
