[177. Shrimati Radharani's dear friend,the vraja-gopi named Madhumati-devi, appeared as Narahari Sarakara, who was very dear to Lord Gauranga.]

mana re! kaha na gauranga katha


"O my mind, please constantly speak

Gauranga Katha and chant Gauranga's Holy Name.This is my advice to you."


gaurara nama amiyara dhama,

piriti murati data


"O mind! Speak only about Gauranga.

Gauranga's Holy Name is the supreme abode of all nectar and the only worshipable and personified bestower of unnatojjvala-prema [unalloyed love and attachment] to Their Lordships Nityananda and Gauranga and Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha and Krishna."


sayane gaura svapane gaura,

gaura nayanera tara;

jivane gaura marane gaura,

gaura galara hara


"While sleeping I want to only remember Gauranga's Name and while dreaming I want to think only about Gauranga. Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu is the exclusive star and the vision of my eyes. During my life there will be only Gauranga and at the time of my death Gauranga's Name will be my only shelter. Gauranga's Holy Name is the most precious necklace I constantly wear around my neck with great happiness."


hiyara majhare gauranga rakhiye, virale vasiya rabo

manera sadhete se rupa-candere, nayane nayane thobo


"Keeping Gauranga deeply and steadily inside my heart and His Holy Name continuously on my tongue, I will sit alone in a solitary place and relish Them constantly without any external disturbance. Thus I will fix my mind on His supremely enchanting golden moon-like form. I will gaze in Lord Gauranga's beautiful eyes and become absorbed in His beauty while chanting His Holy Name."


gaura vihane na vanchi parane,

gaura korechi sara


gaura boliya jauka jivane,

kichu na cahibo ara


"Without Gauranga's Name I do not desire to maintain this body or live in this world. Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name are the very essence of my existence. I have only one desperate prayer in my life: to be able to give up my life while uttering the Holy Name of Gauranga --- I ask for nothing else in this world."


gaura gamana, gaura gathana,

gaura mukhera hamsi


gaura-piriti, gaura murati,

hiyaya rahalo pasi


"May Lord Gauranga's graceful movements, Lord Gauranga's splendid features and characteristics, Lord Gauranga's sweet smiling lotus face, love and attachment for Lord Gauranga's Name, and Lord Gauranga's nectarean delicate form --- all of Them forcibly and spontaneously enter and remain manifest in my heart at every moment."


gauranga dharama, gauranga karama,

gauranga vedera sara


gaura charane, parana samarpinu,

gaura karibena para


"Gauranga is my only Dharma or religion, Gauranga is the only object or goal of all my karma or endeavour and Gauranga's Holy Name is the distilled essence of all the Vedas. I completely surrender my life, mind, body, heart and soul at Lord Gauranga's lotus feet. I am fully certain that it is only Lord Gauranga's Holy Name Who will take me across the impassable ocean of material existence."


gaura sabda gaura sampada,

jahara hiyaya jage


narahari dasa tara carane,

sarana mage


"Gauranga's Name and Instructions are the essential sound vibrations and the exclusive treasures for that fortunate person in whose heart Lord Gauranga manifests Himself by His causeless mercy. Narahari dasa always prays and begs to be able to take shelter at the lotus feet of such an exalted devotee without any hesitation."
