His Divine Grace
Question: Could we hear some meaning of the song Sri Hari Vasarer Tithi from you?
The meaning is simple.
sri hari-vasare hari-kirtana-vidhana
Hari-vasar activities are like this. Every day when the sankirtan started, Mahaprabhu started to dance. He always said, "I always stay in Srivas-angan. When there is chanting and dancing going on in it, I come there and also dance with you."
punyavanta srivasa-angane subharambha
They would start at Srivas Pandit's angan early in the morning and first sing the "Gopala Govinda" song.
mrdanga mandira baje sankha karatala
There were mridangas, sankhas, karatals, you know all these. Everybody chanted, danced, and all you could hear was the sounds of kartals and mridangas.
brahmande uthila dhvani puriya akasa
chatur-dike sri hari-mangala sankirtana
sabara angete sobhe sri chandana-mala
When Mahaprabhu came, everybody would give Him some chandan, a mala (sandalwood paste, a garland).
nijanande nache mahaprabhu visvambhara
Everybody danced with their legs.
bhavavese mala nahi rahaye galaya
When the devotees began to dance, chant and roll on the ground, all the garlands would fall down.
yanra namanande siva vasana na jane
Lord Siva also dances and chants there.
yanra name valmiki ha-ila tapodhana
Valmiki, Ajamil, they all got rescued by this chanting of the Holy Name.
yanra name sravane samsara-bandha ghuche
All bondage of the material world will be removed if you hear this Name, and the Lord appeared in this world and He Himself comes, dances and chants this Holy Name.
yanra nama la-i suka narada bedaya
Narad Goswami and Sukadev always chant His Name. Krishna Himself appeared in this world and chants this Name—He chants His own Name (!) and dances.
sarva-maha-prayaschita ye prabhura nama
Prayaschita means atonement—when you commit some sin, after that you do something opposite to make up for the sin; but if you chant this Holy Name, it is not necessary to do anything.
se prabhu nachaye dekhe yata bhagyavan 
Only the fortunate souls can see all this.
That is the meaning. Vrindavan Das Thakur wrote this song...
