janama saphala ta'rakrsna-darasana ya'ra
bhagye ha-iyachhe eka-bara
vikasiya hrn-nayanakari' krsna darasana
chhade jiva chitera vikara [1]

The birth of one who, by good fortune, has once seen Krishna is successful. Developing the heart's eyes and seeing Krishna, such a soul abandons all delusions.

vrndavana-keli chatur vanamali
tribhanga-bhangima-rupavamsi-dhari aparupa
rasamaya nidhi, guna-sali [2]

Krishna is expert at play in Vrindavan. He wears a forest garland, poses bent in three places, and plays the flute perfectly. He is a reservoir of rasa and possesses all qualities.

varna nava jaladharasire sikhi-pichchha-vara
alaka tilaka sobha paya
paridhane pita-vasavadane madhura hasa
hena rupa jagat mataya [3]

His complexion is the colour of a fresh rain cloud. His forehead is adorned with tilak, curling locks, and a fine peacock feather. He wears yellow garments and has a sweet smile on His face. His form enchants the world.

indra-nila jinikrsna-rupa-khani
heriya kadamba-mule
mana uchatanana chale charana
samsara gelama bhule [4]

Beholding Krishna's form, which surpasses the beauty of a sapphire, beneath a kadamba, my heart was overwhelmed. My feet could not move. I forgot the world.

(sakhi he) sudhamaya se rupa madhuri
dekhile nayanahaya achetana
jhare premamaya vari [5]

O friend! When I saw the beauty of Krishna's nectarean form, I fainted and shed tears of divine love.

kiba chuda sirekiba vamsi kare
kiba se tribhanga thama
charana-kamaleamiya uchhale
tahate nupura dama [6]

What a crown on His head! What a flute in His hand! What a threefold pose! Nectar surged from His lotus feet, which were adorned with tinkling anklets.

sada asa karibhrnga-rupa dhari
charana-kamale sthana
anayase paikrsna-guna gai
ara na bhajiba ana [6]

I eternally desire to take the form of a bee, easily attain a place at Krishna's lotus feet, and sing His glories. I will never serve anyone else.

Gundicha Marjan: 'Let Jagannath Come to My House'
'Another meaning of Gundicha marjan is cleaning the heart, and Mahaprabhu Himself was showing how to do it. At first He swept, then poured water and then with His own cloth, uttariya, He washed the temple. He was showing how thoroughly you must clean your heart...'

 

      

If you chant without following the guidance of your Guru, that chanting will be useless.
