The last of the aratis during the day is the arati at Sri Gupta Govardhan temple, where the devotees gather to one more time present themselves before the presiding Deities of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math and try to serve and glorify the Lordships of our Gurudevas.

 


Sri Gupta Govardhan Evening Aratis:

(1)

SRI GAURA ARATI

(kiba) jaya jaya gorachander aratika sobha
jahnavi-tata-vane jaga-mana lobha [1]
(jaga-janer mana lobha)
(gauranger arati sobha jaga-janer mana lobha)
(nitai gaura haribol)

All glory to the beautiful arati to Sri Gorachand in a grove on the banks of the Ganges, which attracts the hearts of all souls throughout the world!

(kiba) daksine nitaichanda bame gadadhara
nikate advaita srinivasa chhatra-dhara [2]

On Gorachand's right is Nitaichand, and on His left is Gadadhar. Advaita is nearby, and Srivas holds an umbrella.

(kiba) basiyachhe gorachanda ratna-simhasane
(ratna-simhasana alo karere
basiyachhen gorachand ratna-simhasane)
arati karena brahma adi-deva gane [3]
(gauranger arati kare)
(brahma adi-deva gane gauranger arati kare)
(gaurangera bhakta sane gauranger arati kare)
(nitai gaura haribol)

Gorachand has sat on a jewelled throne. Brahma and the other demigods worship Him (in the company of His devotees).

(kiba) narahari-adi kari chamara dhulaya
sanjaya-mukunda-vasu-ghosa-adi gaya [4]
(gaura guna gana kare)
(sanjaya mukunda vasu-ghosa gaura guna gana kare)
(nitai gaura haribol)

Narahari and others fan the Lord with chamaras. Sanjay, Mukunda, Vasudev Ghos, and others sing.

(kiba) sankha baje ghanta baje baje karatala
madhura mrdanga baje parama rasala [5]
(madhur madhur madhur baje)
(gauranger arati kale madhur madhur madhur baje)
(sankha baje ghantabaje madhur madhur madhur baje)
(madhura mrdanga baje madhur madhur madhur baje)
(nitai gaura haribol)

Conches, bells, kartals, and mrdangas resound sweetly. The kirtan is most relishable.

(kiba) bahu-koti chandra jini vadana ujjvala
gala-dese vana-malakare jhalamala [6]
(jhalmal jhalmal jhalmal kare)
(gaura gale vana phuler mala jhalmal jhalmal jhalmal kare)
(nitai gaura haribol)

The radiance of the Lord's face surpasses that of millions of moons. The garland of forest flowers around His neck shines.

(kiba) siva-suka-narada preme gada-gada
bhakati-vinoda dekhe gorara sampada [7]

Siva, Sukadev, and Narad stammer in the ecstasy of love. In this way Bhakti Vinod beholds Gorachand's glory.

(ei bar amay daya kara)
(thakura sri bhakti-vinoda ei bar amay daya kara)
(thakura sri sarasvati ei bar amay daya kara)
(patit-pavan sri gurudev ei bar amay daya kara)
(saparsada gaurahari ei bar amay daya kara)
(nitai gaura haribol)

This time please give me your grace. O Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur, O Srila Saraswati Thakur, O Gurudev, saviour of the fallen, O Gaurahari, along with your associates, this time please give me your grace.

Composed by Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur

SRI SARASWAT ARATI

jayare jayare jaya gaura-sarasvati
bhakativinodanvaya karunamurati [1]

All glory to the voice of Sri Gauranga, the embodiment of Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur's mercy, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur!

prakasile gaura-sevabhuvana mangala
bhakati-siddhanta suddha prajnana ujjvala [2]

He manifested Sri Gauranga's service for the upliftment of the world. His teaching of devotion is pure, brilliant, and enlightening.

radha-syama eka-tanu dakse goraraya
bame radha madhye svayam syama-gopa jaya [4]

All glory to the combined form of Sri Sri Radha-Syam, Sri Gaura Ray, on the right, Sri Radha on the left, and the dark cowherd boy Himself in the middle!

vraja-rasa nava-bhave navadvipe raje
udare madhura raga abhinava saje [4]

Vraja's rasa manifests in a new way in Nabadwip: madhura-rasa dresses newly in benevolence.

madhurya kaivalya raga vrajera niryasa
prapti parakasthatahe gauranga vilasa [5]

Sweet divine love, Vraja's essence, reaches its climax in Sri Gauranga's Pastimes.

radhabhava-kanti angikari' bhala mate
daksine asana rasa garimadekhate [6]

Sri Gauranga earnestly embraces Sri Radha's heart and halo, and takes His place on the right to show His rasa's glory.

radha-rasa-traya-svada rahasya prayasa
nirakhi praphulla radhamukhe manda hasa [7]

Seeing Krsna's secret endeavour to taste Her threefold rasa, Radha is fulfilled and smiles gently.

madhye rahi' vamsi-rave ghose vamsi-dhara
radhara sampade ami gauranga-sundara! [8]

Remaining in the middle, the flute player declares with the song of His flute, "With Radha's wealth, I am Gauranga-sundar!"

mad abhistha rupa radhara hrdaya mandire
gauranga bhajile susthu sphurti paya tare [9]

"If you serve Gauranga, My form which is cherished in the temple of Radha's heart will be fully revealed to you."

nadiyaprakase mahaprabhu gaura-nidhi
patita-pavana deve milaila vidhi [10]

Gauranga Mahaprabhu appeared in Nadia, and Providence combined the saviour of the fallen (the Kali-yuga-avatar) within Him.

e-rupa arati brahma sambhu agochara
gaura-bhakta krpa-patra matra siddhi sara [11]

This type of arati is unknown to Brahma and Siva. Only a recipient of Sri Gauranga's devotees' mercy reaches such perfection.

srisvarupa, ramananda, rupa, sanatana
sriraghu, jivadi krpaya dekhe bhakta-jana [12]

Devotees see this arati by the mercy of Sri Svarup Damodar, Sri Ramananda Ray, Sri Rupa, Sri Sanatan, Sri Raghunath, Sri Jiva, and their associates.

jaya guru-gaura-radha-govinda-sundara
jaya dao bhakta vrnda nitya nirantara [13]

All glory to Sri Guru, Gauranga, and Radha-Govinda-sundar! O devotees, glorify them always and forever!
