He Guru Maharaj, apnar sri padapadme ei adham dasi’r ananta koti pronam o preeti bhalobasha samarpita korlam.
Nitai priya Nitaipreshthji amar
Ki bhabe kori he Gurudeb, vandana tomar?
Murkha neech, ei shishya je boro din
Kintu tomar karuna Prabhu agamya anta-hin
Oh Nitai’s dearest beloved, my Nitaipreshthji
How oh how dear Gurudev, shall I sing Your glories?
Foolish and fallen, this disciple of Yours is very poor
But Your compassion my Master is unfathomable and without end.
pratyek baar ei dine hoye jai stabda
Guru mahima varnane khuje na pai shabda
Tobo mone uthe ullasera taranga
Bujjhi kiba naache anande Nitaichanda!
Every time on this day, I become completely dumbstruck
To describe my Guru padapadma’s glories, I cannot find words
Yet, waves of great joy keep forcefully invading my heart
Nitai is dancing in bliss today, this I can understand.
(He Nitai) Tomar sevaker guna gaite ami khubi asamartha
Amar sakala cheshtha nishchoy habe vyartha
Tadapi ei karye atulniya sukh pai
Ataeva koro doya more Doyal Nitai!
To sing the glories of Your topmost servant oh Nitai, I am extremely incapable
All my efforts to do so will certainly prove futile
Still, in this joyful task my heart feels incomparable happiness
Hence, please have mercy on me by bestowing some strength - oh Doyal Nitai!
Ana-adhikare yadi boli kichu kotha
Barambaar magi Gurudeb srichorone khoma
Dosh dekhiyo na prabhu, ami mudhamati
Ashirbaad koro jeno charane jage rati
In this attempt to glorify You, if I speak something without proper qualification,
then oh dear Gurudev, I beg Your forgiveness again and again.
Please do not see my faults dear master, as I am a fool number one,
Just bless me that I may develop attachment to Your lotus feet.
Gaur koren durlabh Krishna prema pradaan
Nitai aro doyal, tini gupta Gaur prema nidhaan!
Sarvadhik karunamayi Sri Jahnava Mata
Prakashilo Avadhut chandrera Nam lila guna gatha
The Supreme Personality of Godhead Gauranga Mahaprabhu is the bestower of the rare love of Krishna.
Nitaichand is more merciful, since He is the reservoir and distributor of the supremely hidden Gaur prema, which surpasses even Krishna prema.
The epitome of compassion is however Sri Jahnava Mata, as She was the one who illuminated the pinnacle of Gaur Krishna prema – the confidential glories of Nitai’s holy name, qualities and pastimes.
Sei Ananga Jahnava’r sangini, tumi avashya Nitai avesh
Jahnava devi’r iccha hetu prithibite korecho probesh
Tomar madhyame purna habe Jahnava’r karya mahatva-purna
Preme shobai Nitai nam gaibe punah punah!
You are the confidante of that Jahnava Ananga Manjari, thus You are certainly the empowered manifestation of Nitai.
You have come to this material world in order to fulfill the most cherished desire of Jahnava devi.
By You, the most important task of Jahnava Mata will be accomplished.
Very soon the people of this world will cry out Nitai’s name in love again and again.
Jahnava Ishvari swayam Nitai prema ishta
Sei Ishvari’r Tumi sevika ati ghanishtha
Ei karonei to Tomar Nitai bhakti tulna vihin
Praneshwar Nitai sada Tomar premadhin
Jahnava Devi Herself is the Ishta (Mistress) of Nitai prema,
And You are the very intimate maidservant of the empress of Nitai prema (Jahnava).
No wonder there is no comparison to Your devotion for Nitai!
Nitai, the master of Your life, is very easily subdued by Your love.
Bhaktiratna tumi Jahnava Ishvari’r upohaar
Tava pade natha he, ei kangala chhar
Tomar prasade pabo Nitai Jahnava charan
Ei rupe diyecho Srimati Radharani’r sharan
You are the jewel of Bhakti, Jahnava Ishvari’s gift to all of us,
At Your lotus feet, oh Lord, this wretched rogue falls again and again
It is by Your mercy that we will attain the Divine Couple Jahnava Nitai,
And in this way You have expertly also given us the shelter of Srimati Radhe (no wonder it says Radha ashraya pradayine in Your pranam mantra!).
Chale, bale, kaushale Nitai koren Gaurnam vitaran,
Sei bhabe prachar hoibe ebe Nitainam lekhan
Nitaier pratinidhi Tumi, Nitai sama dhurandhar
Jane jane bilaile Prabhu Haladhar
By tricks, by personally pleading and by employing various clever methods, Nitai distributes Gaur’s holy name to everyone,
In the same way now Nitai’s own holy name, in the form of Nitainam Lekhan, will also be preached throughout world.
Being Nitai’s representative, You are expert just like Him!
You are giving away Haladhar Nitai Balaram to every person, by implementing His own methods.
Boro kathin paar kora anartha nivritti,
durgama sthar paar korar dile vidhhati
Nitainam lekhane sarba aparadh ghucchi
Sulabhe prapta hoy harinam ruchi
It is very difficult to cross the stage of anartha nivritti.
To cross this unsurpassable level, You have given us this sublime process.
Nitainam lekhan wipes out all our offenses,
taste for the holy names is very easily obtained.
Tomar madhye paowa jay purna Guru Parampara
Tomar vani te bahe tader upadesha dhara
Tomar sebay je koribe nijeke utsarga
Prassanya koribe se samastha Guruvarga
The whole Guru Parampara can be seen within You,
All their instructions flow from Your vani.
One who dedicates themselves in Your service,
he will certainly please the whole Guruvarga.
Dham nishthay tumi jeno Baba Jagannath das,
Sada koro Ekachakra Radhakunde vaas
Mayapur Yogapith mahima dekhaila Bhaktivinoda Thakur,
Ekachakra Yogapith katha tomar mukhe hoilo ankur
In terms of dham nishtha, You are like Jagannath das babaji who never left the holy abode of Vraja-Navadvipa.
You are always residing in Nitaidham Ekachakra or Sri Radhakund dham!
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur revealed the glories of Mayapur Yogapith, Gauranga’s place of appearance,
but the extremely esoteric glories of Nitai’s Yogapith in Ekachakra have manifested extensively from Your lotus mouth!
Gaurkishor das babaji’r nam bhajan nishtha,
Namakshar aradhana Tumi korecho pratishtha!
Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati bhakti tattva Guru,
Sarva siddhantera Tumi gyana kalpataru
Gaurkishor das babaji has shown by His example, the importance of Nam bhajan,
You have propagated His teachings practically by implementing the worship of the Nam syllables!
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati is the master of all philosophies in devotional service.
You are the desire tree which supplies the knowledge of all those teachings spoken by Him.
Siksha Guru tomar Prabhupada Bhaktivedanta,
Unar sange tomar mil boro durdanto!
Dujoni Nitai avesh, ei katha satya
Snehera patra Tumi unar param priya bhritya
Your instructing spiritual master is Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Your similarities with Him are in a great measure and very striking!
You both are Nityananda Avesh, this is a fact.
You are the recipient of Prabhupada’s doting affection, and His very dear servant.
Tomar katha sunile hride prakashe gudha bhakti gyan
Raganuga bhaktir prabesh marg hoilo sandhan
Keval matra tomar katha yadi sune haiya eka mon
Shigrahi paibe nitya lila’r apurbo darshan
By hearing Your rasika kathas, esoteric truths of devotional service are spontaneously revealed in the heart.
The medium of entering into Raganuga bhakti (spontaneous loving devotional service following in the footsteps of Vraja vasis) and the nitya lilas is now found!
If one simply hears Your kathas with rapt attention, very soon they will attain the astounding darshan of the eternal unmanifest pastimes of Sri Sri Nitai Gaur and Radha Krishna.
Tomar bhava bahu jan bhool bujhe baar baar
Kore koto lanchana aparadha prahaar
Kintu tomar Nitai nishtha parama atal
Lage jeno khada parvata himachala
So many souls misunderstand Your topmost mood for Nitai, so many times.
They attack with arguments, accusations and offenses against You.
But Your loyalty to Nitai and firm determination to spread His glories is unshakeable.
It seems unmovable just like the Himachala mountains.
Vinamratar murti tumi, kintu param vidwan
Tava darshane hoy ahankarer avashaan
Nitai jemon Adi Guru, kintu balya swabhaav
Nitai preme matta tomar sei rokom bhaav
You are the embodiment of humility, but full of transcendental knowledge.
All ego runs away simply by receiving Your divine audience.
Just like Nitai is the primeval spiritual master, but always in the mood of a child,
You being maddened in His love are always in an innocent mood - just like Him.
Din kate din gune, nishi jay niraashe
Kabe jabo Gurudeb tomar charana pashe?
Dhairya ha Nitai, aar to nahi roy
Kabe koribo ami sudridha nischoy?
Days pass like numbers, and the night passes in hopelessness
When will I be near Your lotus feet oh Gurudev?
Patience oh Nitai, I can no longer keep.
When will I become firmly determined to leave everything behind and run to my Gurudev’s lotus feet?
Praner Gurudeb mor khoma koro aparadha,
Janama janama more koro atma shaatha!
Aravinda pade keval matra chai
Rakho Nitaipreshthji’r ashroye doyal Nitai!
My dearest Gurudev, please forgive all my unlimited offenses at Your lotus feet.
Kindly empower this fallen soul to be your true servant life after life.
Oh Doyal Nitai, at Your feet only this much I beg, please always keep me in Nitaipreshthji’s shelter.
