Arati of Sri Gaura Nitai
His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
I told Sripad Tyagi Maharaj to write the arati in a certain way and send it to you—have you got it? It was before "Jaya Guru Maharaj karuna sagara..." and I told him to write:
jaya jaya prabhupada karuna sagara
"Glory to Srila Prabhupad, the ocean of mercy and best of Acharyas, Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaj Prabhupad!"
prakasile karakase bhuvana mangala
"He manifested in Caracas for the welfare of the world the effulgent service of Sri Sri Guru Gaura-Nityananda."
gaura-nityananda bhakta krpa patra gana
"Recipients of the mercy of the devotees of Gaura and Nityananda see the splendour of this arati, a sight most rare to behold."
nadiya-lilaya nityananda gaura-nidhi
"Providence has brought Nityananda and Gauranidhi from Their Pastimes in Nadia to the community of devotees in Medellín."
Are there any questions from you all?
Question: Should we sing this song at all the three aratis?
How many songs do you want to sing? The Deities are Gaura Nitai, so sing some Gaura Nityananda songs in the morning, at noon and in the evening. Which songs to sing is up to you, but sing this arati minimum in the evening. OK? Other than that, whatever you decide, I have no problem with that.
There is also a very nice song written by Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur:
kali-kukkura-kadana yadi chao he
If you want to tame the dog Kali, then chant 'Sri Sachi Nandan!' He is the saviour and destroyer of fear in Kali-yuga.
gadadhara-madana nitai-era prana-dhana,
He is Gadadhar's joy, and Nitai's life and wealth. He is worshipped by Advaita Acharya. He is known as Nimai, and is the maintainer of the universe. He is Srivas Thakur's Lord, and He steals the devotees' hearts.
Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj also wrote:
jaya sachi-nandana sura-muni-vandana
All glory to Sri Sachi Nandan, who is worshipped by the demigods and sages! All glory to He who destroys all fear of material existence! All glory to the inaugurator of dancing and chanting the Lord's Names! All glory to He who removes the contamination of Kali!
There is also "Yasomati nandana..." You can sing any of these, it is not a problem. You can sing the arati song in the evening or at any other time you like—if you like, you can sing it three times a day also, it is not a problem.
