Thakura Vaisnava Gana

 

thakura vaisnava-gana kari ei nivedana
mo bada adhama durachara
daruna-samsara-nidhi tahe dubaila vidhi
kese dhari' more kara para [1]

O worshippable Vaisnavas, I offer you this prayer. I am very fallen and misbehaved. Destiny has immersed me in the fearsome ocean of material existence. Please grab me by the hair and pull me to the shore.

vidhi bada balavan na sune dharama-jnana
sadai karama-pase bandhe
na dekhi tarana lesa yata dekhi saba klesa
anatha katare tei kande [2]

Destiny is very powerful. It does not listen to my knowledge of religion and always binds me with the ropes of karma. I do not see even a trace of hope. All I see is hardship. Thus helpless and distressed, I cry.

kama, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, abhimana saha
apana apana sthane tane
aichana amara mana phire yena andha jana
supatha vipatha nahi jane [3]

Lust, anger, greed, illusion, pride, and ego all pull me in their own directions. Thus my mind wanders like a blind man who does not know the right way from the wrong way.

na la-inu sat mata asate majila chita
tuya paye na karinu asa
narottama dase kaya dekhi' suni' lage bhaya
taraiya laha nija pasa [4]

I have never accepted the proper conception. My mind has been immersed in illusion, and I have never aspired for your feet. Narottam Das says, "Seeing and hearing about my situation, I am stricken with fear. Please rescue me and keep me by your side."

By Srila Narottam Das Thakur
