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.

Singing Songs and
Doing Kirtan
'Singing a song and kirtan are different. If you know the meaning of the song, you will always get energy to do kirtan; if you just sing a song, you will not get that energy.'

 

      

Do not think you are a guest here—you think when you come to Gurudev you are a guest, but if you can think you are the host, I will be much happier.
