By Srila Govinda Das Kaviraj

 

bhajahu re mana sri-nanda-nandana
abhaya-charanaravinda re
durlabha manava janama sat-sange
taraha e bhava-sindhu re [1]

O mind, serve the son of Nanda's lotus feet, which make one fearless. Having attained this rare human birth, cross over the ocean of material existence by associating with sadhus.

sita atapa vata varisana
e dina yamini jagi re
viphale sevinu krpana durajana
chapala sukha-lava lagi' re [2]

Day and night I remain awake, suffering from the heat and the cold, the wind and the rain. For a moment of flickering happiness I have uselessly served wicked and miserly men.

e dhana, yauvana, putra, parijana
ithe ki achhe paratiti re
kamala-dala-jala jivana talamala
(ei achhe ei nai jivana talamala)
bhajahu hari-pada niti re [3]

What is there in having wealth, youth, sons, and family? Life is tottering like water on a lotus petal (it is here, and then it is gone). O mind, serve the Lord's feet.

sravana, kirtana, smarana, vandana
pada-sevana, dasya re
pujana, sakhi-jana, atma-nivedana
govinda-dasa-abhila sare [4]

Govinda Das desires to engage in the nine practices of devotion: hearing about, glorifying, remembering, praying to, attending to, serving, worshipping, befriending, and surrendering to the Lord.

Odds and Ends
'Cleaning is the best service! Cleaning is the best and the primary service—through cleaning the heart becomes clean.'

 

      

When we see somebody wearing saffron colour, we think they are a maha-bhagavat,
but it is not so. We cannot recognise with these mundane eyes who is a sadhu.
