Song 3


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




shacir angane kabhu,  madhavendra-puri prabhu,

prasadanna korena bhojan

khaite khaite ta’ra,  ailo prema sudurbar,

bole, shuno sannyasira gan


1) O brothers! Madhavendra Puri Prabhu sometimes honored prasad in the courtyard of Mother Shaci. While eating and eating he would become overwhelmed by symptoms of ecstatic love of God. Once he addressed the renunciates who were accompanying him, “O assembled sannyasis! Just listen to this:



moca-ghanta phula-badi,  dali-dalna-caccadi,

shaci-mata korilo randhan

ta’ra shuddha bhakti heri’,  bhojana korilo hari,

sudha-sama e anna-byanjan


2) “Mother Shaci has cooked many varieties of prasad, such as semi-solid delicacies made with banana flower, a special dahl preparation, baskets of fruits, small square cakes made of lentils and cooked-down milk, among others. Seeing her pure devotion, Lord Krishna personally ate all these preparations, which are just like nectar.



yoge yogi pay jaha,  bhoge aj ha’be taha,

`hari’ boli’ khao sabe bhai

krishnaera prasad-anna,  tri-jagat kore dhanya,

tripurari nace jaha pai’


3) “O brothers! All the results that the mystic yogis obtain by the diligent practice of yoga will be obtained today by taking these remnants of the Lord. Everyone come and eat the prasad of Lord Hari and shout His holy name! The three worlds are made glorious by the presence of the foodgrains left by Lord Krishna. Even Lord Tripurari dances in great joy on obtaining that prasad.*”
