Song 2

 

[The next song is to be sung while honoring the Lord’s prasad]

 

(1)

bhai-re!

eka-dina shantipure,  prabhu adwaitera ghare,

dui prabhu bhojane bosilo

shak kori’ aswadana,  prabhu bole bhakta-gana,

ei shak krishna aswadilo

 

1) O brothers! One day at Shri Advaita’s house in shantipura, the two Lords-Chaitanya and Nityananda-were seated for lunch. Lord Chaitanya tasted the green leafy vegetable preparation and addressed the assembly of His devotees, “This shak is so delicious! Lord Krishna has definitely tasted it.

 

(2)

heno shak-aswadane,  krishna-prema aise mane,

sei preme koro aswadana

jada-buddhi parihari’,  prasad bhojana kori’,

`hari hari’ bolo sarva jan

 

2) “At the taste of shak like this, love of Krishna arises in the heart. In such love you should taste these remnants. Giving up all materialistic conceptions and taking the Lord’s prasad, all of you just chant `Hari! Hari!’” [for more details of this pastime, see Chaitanya Bhagavata, Antya 4.234-299]
