Song 4



`nirakar nirakar’, koriya citkar

keno sadhaker shanti bhango, bhai, bar bar


1) O brothers, by your screaming out again and again, “The Supreme Lord is formless! The Absolute Truth is a void!”, why do you so insist on disturbing the peace of the Vaishnavas?



tumi ja’ bujhecho bhalo, tai lo’ye koto kal,

bhakti vina phalodoy tarke nahi, jano sar


2) Having accepted this impersonal philosophy, which you consider to be very good, you are simply wasting so much time. You should understand this essential truth: Without devotion for the Supreme Lord, no factual gain is brought about by engaging in mere dry arguments.



samanya tarkera bale, bhakti nahi asvadile,

janama hoilo britha, na korile suvicar


3) Your birth as a human being is useless, for although you are supposed to be great philosophers, you did not judge rightly in this regard-by the power of mundane logic and argument you have failed to taste the bliss of pure devotion to the Supreme Lord.



rupashraye krishna bhaji’, jadi hari-preme maji,

ta’ ho’le alabhya, bhai, ki koribe bolo ar


4) If I worship Krishna under the shelter of Shrila Rupa Goswami, and thereby deeply immerse myself in divine love for Lord Hari-and you are unable to attain that state, O brothers, then what will you do? What more will you say?
