Early in the morning, at the very crack of dawn, the devotees of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math awaken to a new day and begin their service from the morning arati, a worship offering to the Lordships' lotus feet. First is a very early arati for Sri Sada Siva Gangadhar.

 

 

Pranam Mantra for Sri Sada Siva Gangadhar:

devadidevam-ahibhusanam-indukasam
panchananam pasupatim varadam prasannam
gangadharam pranatapalakamasutosam
vande sadasiva-haripriya-chandramaulim

The chief of the Devas, whose body is decorated by snakes, whose body shines like the moon, who has five heads, who carries his weapon known as Pasupat, who gives boons, who is of satisfied nature, who holds the Ganga on his head, who maintains those who give obeisance to him, who is easily pleased—I offer my obeisances to Sada Siva, who is dear to Hari, and whose crown is the moon.

 

Sri Sada Siva Arati

(ohe) vaisnava thakura dayara sagara
e dase karuna kari
diya pada-chaya sodha he amaya
tomara charana dhari [1]

O worshippable Vaisnava, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet.

chhaya vega dami' chhaya dosa sodhi'
chhaya guna deha' dase
chhaya sat-sanga deha' he amare
basechhi sangera ase [2]

Subjugate the six urges, rectify the six defects, and bestow the six good qualities upon this servant. Grant me the six kinds of good association. I have sat at your feet, desiring that association.
Six urges: speech, mind, anger, tongue, belly, genitals.
Six defects: excessive eating, materialistic endeavours, useless talks, inability to follow instructions, bad association, fickle-mindedness.
Six good qualities: enthusiasm, faith, perseverance, service, avoiding bad association, follow the instructions.
Six kinds of good association: meet with devotees, receive devotees at home, discuss and hear Hari-katha, accept and offer prasadam.

ekaki amara nahi paya bala
hari-nama-sankirtane
tumi krpakari sraddha-bindu diya
deha' krsna-nama-dhane [3]

Alone I do not have the ability to properly chant the Lord's Name. Mercifully give me a drop of faith and bestow upon me the wealth of Krishna's Name.

krsna se tomara krsna dite para
tomara sakati achhe
ami ta' kangala 'krsna krsna' bali
dhai tava pachhe pachhe [4]

Krsna is yours. You can give Krishna. You have that power. I am very poor. Calling, 'Krishna' 'Krishna', I run after you.

(ami) (dhai tava pachhe pachhe)
(krsna dhana pabar ase dhai tava pachhe pachhe)
(tumi dile krsna dite para)
(krsna tomar hrdayer dhan tumi dileo dite para)
(krsna debar sakti-dhara tumi dileo dite para)

I run after you.
I run after you in hope of attaining the wealth of Krishna.
If you desire to give Krishna, you can give Him.
If you desire to give, you can give. Krishna is the wealth of your heart.
You have the power to give Krishna. If only you desire to give Krishna, you can give Him.
