Saranagati, Song 15: Atma-nivedanatmika (Self-Submission)
"Atma-nivedana, tuya pade kari: All the distress I encounter in Your service is also my greatest happiness. Both the distress and the happiness that come from engagement in Your service are my greatest fortune; they both destroy the distress of ignorance. Feeling the happiness of Your service in my heart, I have completely forgotten all past history."

"Nivedana kari prabhu! tomara charane: O Lord! I submit myself at Your feet. There is no sinner within this world so sinful as I. There is no offender within this material world so offensive as I. I feel ashamed to beg for forgiveness for all my sins and offences. You alone are the shelter of those who have fallen. What else is there besides You, O merciful Lord?"

Hari-Katha in Sri Kovvur (Godavari): Sri Ramananda Ray's Expertise
"Later, when Ramananda Ray stayed in Puri, one day a brahman named Pradyumna Misra came to Mahaprabhu and asked Him if he could hear Krishna-katha from Him. Mahaprabhu replied, 'I do not know Krishna-katha. Go to Ramananda Ray...'"

"Vastutah sakali tava, jiva keha naya: In reality, everything is Yours; nothing belongs to the soul. Deep within, the conditioned soul considers his misconceptions of 'I' and 'mine' to be his only wealth. May the mood of self-submission remain steadfast within my heart. May it not remain only momentarily, like the bathing of an elephant."

"Aham mama sabda arthe: O merciful Lord! I have surrendered all that is meant by the words 'I' and 'mine' at Your feet. I now understand that the word 'I' means the soul who animates the material body and have thus abandoned all false egotism. Today the ego of being 'Your own' has entered my heart."

Diving deep into the reality of His own beauty and sweetness, Lord Govinda stole the mood of Radharani and, garbing Himself in Her brilliant luster, appeared as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. For the last twelve years of His manifest Pastimes He was deeply absorbed in union and separation, and He shared His heart's inner feelings with His most confidential devotees such as Swarupa Damodara and Ramananda Ray. Volcanic eruptions of ecstasy flowed from the heart of Sri Gauranga in the agony of separation from Krishna. This Golden Lord, who appeared like an intoxicated elephant, is none other than Lord Govinda. I offer my obeisances to that beautiful Golden Lord, Gaurangasundar, the divine form of Krishna prema.

In honour of Srila Ramananda Ray:

Sri Ramananda Ray Prabhu [By His Divine Grace Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj]
"Ramananda Ray was very strong and a very good administrator. He controlled the whole situation and the whole atmosphere after Mahaprabhu's disappearance and gave full nourishment to the devotees. Ramananda Ray stayed alive until finally, today, when everything had become peaceful and settled, he also disappeared..."

At Ramananda Ray's Garden
"Pradyumna Misra came to Mahaprabhu and asked, 'Prabhu, can You speak some Krishna-katha?' Mahaprabhu replied, 'I do not know so much, but Ramananda Ray knows more than Me...'"

Chapter 16: Reality the Beautiful [From Search for Sri Krishna, Reality the Beautiful]
Ramananda Raya was a married man, but he was recognized by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu as a master of his senses to the extreme degree. Once a brahmana priest named Pradyumna Misra came to Mahaprabhu and told Him, 'I would like to hear about Krishna from Your lips'..."

 

SONG: Ei-bara karuna kara | এইবার করুণা কর
"O worshippable Vaisnava, be merciful to me this time. O saviour of the fallen, without you there is no one. In every birth I aspire for the dust of your feet."

SONG: Ohe Vaisnava Thakura | (ওহে) বৈষ্ণব ঠাকুর
"O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet. You can give Krishna, you have that power. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you."

SONG: Ki-rupe paiba seva | কিরূপে পাইব সেবা
"I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs! Prabhu, you see no fault in others, you are the saviour of the fallen. Please deliver Narottam this time!"

SONG: Dhana mora nityananda | ধন মোর নিত্যানন্দ
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs' name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of Vaishnavs, and I am elated hearing the name of Vaishnavs."

SONG: Ye anila prema-dhana | যে আনিল প্রেমধন
"Where has Advaita Acharya gone? Where are my Svarup, Rupa, Sanatan? Where is my Raghunath? Where are the saviours of the fallen souls?"
