Sanatan-Sikha:
The Cry of a Surrendered Soul

[His Divine Grace is reading from Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, Madhya-lila, chapter 22:]

...So, the souls suffer the pain of the threefold miseries—adhibhautik (আধিভৌতিক), adhidaivik (আধিদৈবিক), and adhyatmik (আধ্যাত্মিক). How can they get relief?

kama-krodhera dasa hana tara lathi khaya
bhramite bhramite yadi sadhu-vaidya paya

"The souls become slaves of lust and anger and get kicked around by them. In this way, they wander throughout the universe until they get the help of a sadhu, the physician."

Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, 2.22.14

tanra upadesa-mantre pisachi palaya
krsna-bhakti paya, tabe krsna-nikata yaya

"When the souls follow the guidance and take the mantra that they receive from the sadhu, Maya the Witch flees from them. Then they get devotion to Krishna and can come near to Krishna."

Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, 2.22.15

kamadinam kati na katidha palita durnidesas
tesam jata mayi na karuna na trapa nopasantih

Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, 2.22.16

"O Lord! O Bhagavan! How many kinds of wicked orders I have received from lust and others! They gave me nonsense orders and without any shame I followed them all. They had no mercy on me, nor were they ever satisfied. How many times I have listen to my children, wife, friends, and others! What am I to do now? O Krishna!"

This is the main sloka of a saranagata, surrendered soul. Param Guru Maharaj Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj always recited this sloka.

utsrjyaitan atha yadu-pate sampratam labdha-buddhis
tvam ayatah saranam abhayam mam niyunksvatma-dasye

"O Krishna! Suddenly, I have managed to leave their side and got some good intelligence, and I have come to surrender at Your fearless lotus feet. Please, engage me now as Your servant."

Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, 2.22.16

It is a very important sloka, you must always remember it. Learn it by heart. It written by Srila Rupa Goswami in Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, 3.2.25, and also here in Chaitanya-charitamrita, in Sanatan-sikha, 22.16.

 

কামাদীনাং কতি ন কতিধা পালিতা দুর্নিদেশা,
তেষাং জাতা ময়ি ন করুণা ন ত্রপা নোপশান্তিঃ ।
উৎসৃজ্যৈতানথ যদুপতে ! সাম্প্রতং লব্ধবুদ্ধি-
সত্বামায়াতঃ শরণমভয়ং মাং নিযুঙ্ক্ষ্বাত্মদাস্যে ॥

"হে ভগবান্ কামাদির কত প্রকার দুষ্ট আদেশই আমি পালন করিয়াছি ! তথাপি অমার প্রতি তাহাদের করুণা এবং আমার লজ্জারও উপশান্তি হইল না । হে যদুপতে, আপততঃ আমি তাহাদিগকে পরিত্যাগ করিয়া সদ্­বুদ্ধিলাভ করতঃ তোমার অভয়চরণে শরণাগত হইলাম, তুমি এখন আমাকে আত্মদাস্যে নিযুক্ত কর ।"
(শ্রীশ্রীচৈতন্যচরিতামৃত, ২/২২/১৬)


kamadinam kati na katidha palita durnidesa,
tesam jata mayi na karuna na trapa nopasantih
utsrjyaitan atha yadu-pate! sampratam labdha-buddhis

"O Lord! How many kinds of wicked orders from lust and others I followed! They had no mercy on me, nor were they ever satisfied! O Krishna! Suddenly, I managed to leave their side and got some good intelligence—I have surrendered at Your fearless lotus feet, please engage me now as Your servant."

Tackling Mood Swings
'Some day your mood is not good, but you should chant the Holy Name, chant and practise more and more. You should think, 'Why is my mind not good? Why is my mood not good? I must do more service, I must practise more.''

 

Gaya Gora madhur svare
'Your life is ending, but you have not served Hrsikes. Bhakti Vinod advises: once relish His Name's nectar.'
গায় গোরা মধুর স্বরে

We are all here by the mercy of Gurudev. Without the mercy of Guru and Vaishnavs
we cannot even make one step forward.
