Song 1


[The first song is to be sung before honoring the Lord’s prasad]




sharira avidya-jal,  jodendriya tahe kal,

jive phele vishaya-sagore

ta’ra madhye jihva ati,  lobhamoy sudurmati,

ta’ke jeta kathina samsare


1) O brothers! This material body is a network of ignorance, and the senses are one’s deadly enemies, for they throw the soul into the ocean of material sense enjoyment. Among the senses, the tongue is the most voracious and verily wicked; it is very difficult to conquer the tongue in this world.



krishna bado doyamoy,  koribare jihva jay,

swa-prasad-anna dilo bhai

sei annamrita pao,  radha-krishna-guna gao,

preme dako chaitanya-nitai


2) O brothers! Lord Krishna is very merciful-just to control the tongue He has given us the remnants of His own food! Now please eat these nectarean grains while singing the glories of Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha and Krishna, and in love call out “Chaitanya! Nitai!”
