Gitavali, Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur

 

durlabha manava-janma labhiya samsare
krsna na bhajinu duhkha kahiba kahare? [1]

I have got a very rare human life in this world, but I have not worshipped Lord Krishna. Whom can I tell of my misery?

'samsara' 'samsara' kari' michhe gela kala
labha na ha-ila kichhu, ghatila janjala [2]

Time has passed as I have been busy in my material life, and I have got nothing—only became burdened.

kisera samsara ei chhayabaji praya
ihate mamata kari vrtha dina yaya [3]

What sort of world is this? It is like a play of shadows. While I affectionately take it as my own, my days pass by in vain.

e deha patana ha'le ki rabe amara?
keha sukha nahi dibe putra paribara [4]

When this body drops dead, what will remain ‘mine'? Upon death neither my sons nor my family will give me any satisfaction.

gardabhera mata ami kari parisrama
kara lagi' eta kari, na ghuchi la bhrama [5]

I toil laboriously like an ass. For whom am I doing this? Still my illusion has not been dispelled.

dina yaya michha kaje, nisa nidra-vase
nahi bhavi marana nikate achhe vase [6]

My days are passed in useless work and nights are wasted on sleeping. It never occurs to me that there is death sitting next to me.

bhala manda khai, heri, pari, chinta-hina
nahi bhavi, e deha chhadiba kona dina [7]

I eat luxuriously, look around, and dress carelessly, never considering that one day I will leave this body.

deha-geha-kalatradi-chinta avirata
jagichhe hrdaye mora buddhi kari hata [8]

Constant thoughts of my body, home, wife, and so on, arise in my heart and spoil my intelligence.

haya, haya! nahi bhavi—anitya e saba
jivana vigate kotha rahibe vaibhava? [9]

Alas! Alas! I never considered that all of these things are temporary. When my soul departs, where will all these opulences remain?

smasane sarira mama padiya rahibe
vihanga-patanga taya vihara karibe [10]

My body will be laid to rest at the crematorium. There birds and insects will enjoy it.

kukkura srgala saba anandita ha'ye
mahotsava karibe amara deha la'ye [11]

Dogs and jackals will happily have a festival with my body.

ye dehera ei gati, tara anugata
samsara-vaibhava ara bandhu-jana yata [12]

This is the fate of my body, its effects, material wealth, and all of my companions.

ataeva maya-moha chhadi buddhimana
nitya-tattva krsna-bhakti karuna sandhana [13]

So, intelligent souls! Abandon Maya's illusion and search for the eternal truth: devotion to Krsna.

Sweet Dreams
'If Krishna calls, I am going, but those who are sleeping will sleep through the whole of their life. They will not be able to get there—they will come and go and will always sleep.'

 

      

You chant the Holy Name, you always remember Krishna, practise properly and engage
yourself in service to the Lord, so Krishna always makes you happy.
