Song 3



`hari’ bolo, `hari’ bolo, `hari’ bolo, bhai re

harinam aniyache gauranga-nitai re

(modera duhkha dekhe’ re)


1) O brothers, chant “Hari!” Chant “Hari!” Chant “Hari!” Lord Gauranga and Lord Nitai have brought the holy name! (Seeing our unhappiness!)



harinam vina jiver anya dhana nai-re

hariname shuddha ha’lo jagai-madhai re

(bado papi chilo re)


2) Except for the holy name, there is no other treasure for the soul! By the influence of the holy name, even Jagai and Madhai became pure! (They were both greatly sinful persons!)



miche maya-baddha ho’ye jivan katai re

(`ami, amar’ bole’ re)

asha-vashe ghure’ ghure’ ar kotha jai re

(ashar shesha nai re)


3) I pass my life uselessly bound by Maya! (Always saying “I” and “mine”!) Wandering here and there under the control of mundane desires-where shall I go next? (There is no end to worldly desires!)



`hari’ bole’ deo bhai ashar mukhe chai re

(nirasha to’ sukho re)

bhoga-moksha-vancha chadi’ harinam gai re

(shuddha-sattva ho’ye re)


4) O brothers, chant “Hari!” while looking directly in the face of material desire! (Freedom from mundane hankerings is the platform of actual happiness!) Giving up all desire for mundane enjoyment and liberation, I chant the holy names of the Supreme Lord! (Having become pure and situated in transcendence!)*



nace’ jeo namer gune o sab phala pai re

(tuccha phale prayas chede’ re)

vinod bole jai lo’ye namer balai re

(namer balai chede’ re)


5) I dance in ecstasy due to the power and divine qualities of the holy name, and thus I obtain all these results! (Having given up all endeavors for insignificant material results!) Bhaktivinoda says, “I conquer all impediments to the pure chanting of the holy name! (Having given up all offenses to the holy name!)”
