By Srila Narottam Das Thakur

 

nitai-pada-kamalakoti-chandra-susitala
ye chhayaya jagata judaya
hena nitai vine bhairadha-krsna paite nai
drdha kari' dhara nitaira paya [1]

Cooling like ten million moons, Nitai's lotus feet soothe the world with their shade. O brother! Without Nitai, you cannot reach Radha-Krsna. Firmly grasp Nitai's feet.

se sambandha nahi yaravrtha janma gela tara
sei pasu bada durachara
nitai na balila mukhemajila samsara-sukhe
vidya-kule ki karibe tara [2]

The life of one who had no connection with Nitai passed in vain. Such an animal is very wicked. What will learning (aristocratic birth) do for one who was immersed in worldly pleasures and never called aloud, 'Nitai'?

ahankare matta hainanitai-pada pasariya
asatyere satya kari' mani
nitaiyer karuna habevraje radha-krsna pabe
dhara nitaiyer charan du'khani [3]

Maddened with pride, forgetting Nitai's feet, I accept untruth as truth. When Nitai bestows His mercy you will reach Radha-Krsna in Vraja. Grasp Nitai's feet!

nitaiyer charana satyatanhara sevaka nitya
nitai-pada sada kara asa
narottama bada duhkhinitai more kara sukhi
rakha ranga-charanera pasa [4]

Nitai's feet are truth, and His servants are eternal. Always aspire for Nitai's feet. Narottam is very sad: "O Nitai! Make me happy. Keep me beside your reddish feet."

A Temple Manager's Qualities
'To run a temple, you do not have to be a big guru. If you are gentle, if you have some quality, have sympathy, love and affection, for others, you can be a proper manager of a temple.'

 

      

If I can acquire these kinds of qualities (humility, tolerance, and giving honour to others),
then if I chant the Holy Name, offences will be removed from my heart. Otherwise not.
