Song 5

 

(1)

(hare) haraye namah krishna yadavaya namah

yadavaya madhavaya keshavaya namah

gopala govinda ram shri-madhusudan

radha-govinda bolo (4 times)

 

1) I offer my respectful obeisances unto Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, the descendant of the Yadu dynasty, husband of the goddess of fortune and the killer of the demon Keshi, the protector of the cows, the pleaser of the cows, the supreme enjoyer, and the slayer of the demon Madhu. Chant the holy names “Radha-Govinda!”

 

(2)

govinda govinda govinda bolo

radha-govinda bolo (4 times)

guru-kripa jale nashi’ vishaya-anala

radha-govinda bolo (4 times)

 

2) Chant “Govinda! Govinda! Govinda!” Chant “Radha-Govinda!” Now that the waters of the spiritual master’s mercy have extinguished the blazing fire of worldly existence, chant “Radha-Govinda!”

 

(3)

krishnaete arpiya deha-gehadi sakal

radha-govinda bolo (4 times)

ananya-bhavete citta koriya saral

3) Offering body, home, family and all to Shri Krishna, chant “Radha-Govinda!” In a mood of unalloyed determination, becoming simple and straightforward in your heart, chant “Radha-Govinda!”

4) Drinking the water that has washed the feet of a Vaishnava who follows in the footsteps of Shrila Rupa Goswami, chant “Radha-Govinda!” Giving up the ten offenses to the holy name, as well as the alluring fruits of material enjoyment and

liberation, chant “Radha-Govinda!”

 

(5)

radha-govinda bolo (4 times)

 

5) Making the dust from the feet of a gopi your only means of support, chant “Radha-Govinda!” Feeling relieved by living in Vraja in your eternal spiritual form, chant “Radha-Govinda!”
