Sri Gurvastakam

By Srila Visvanath Chakravarti Thakur

 

samsara-davanala-lidha-loka
tranaya karunya-ghanaghanatvam
praptasya kalyana-gunarnavasya
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [1]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, the ocean of goodness who assumes the form of a cloud of mercy to deliver the souls burning in the blazing fire of material existence.

mahaprabhoh kirtana-nrtya-gita-
vaditra-madyan-manaso rasena
romancha-kampasru-taranga-bhajo
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [2]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet Sri Guru, who sheds waves of tears, trembles, and experiences horripilation through his devotion to Sriman Mahaprabhu and becomes maddened at heart by chanting, dancing, singing, and playing instruments.

sri-vigraharadhana-nitya-nana
srngara-tan-mandira-marjanadau
yuktasya bhaktams cha niyunjato 'pi
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [3]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who daily engages himself and other devotees in dressing the Deity with various ornaments, cleaning the Deity's temple, and performing other devotional practices.

chatur-vidha-sri-bhagavat-prasada
svadv-anna-trptan hari-bhakta-sanghan
krtvaiva trptim bhajatah sadaiva
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [4]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who is always satisfied by satisfying the Lord's devotees with the four types of tasteful Bhagavat-prasad.

sri-radhika-madhavayor apara-
madhurya-lila-guna-rupa-namnam
prati-ksanasvadana-lolupasya
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [5]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who is always eager to relish the unlimitedly sweet Names, Forms, Qualities, and Pastimes of Sri Sri Radhika-Madhava.

nikunja-yuno rati-keli-siddhyair
ya yalibhir yuktir apeksaniya
tatrati-daksyad ati-vallabhasya
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [6]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who is very expert in the arts performed by the sakhis to fulfil the Forest Couple's Love Play, and is thus very dear to Them.

saksad-dharitvena samasta-sastrair
uktas tatha bhavyata eva sadbhih
kintu prabhor yah priya eva tasya
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [7]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who is said by all the scriptures to be the Lord Himself, and considered to be so by the sadhus, yet is the Lord's beloved devotee.

yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasado
yasyaprasadan na gatih kuto 'pi
dhyayam stuvams tasya yasas tri-sandhyam
vande guroh sri-charanaravindam [8]

I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, praising and meditating upon his glory at the three junctions of the day. By his grace, one gains the Lord's grace. Without his grace, one has no shelter anywhere.

srimad gurorastakam etad uchchair
brahme muhurte pathati prayatnat
yas tena vrndavana-natha-saksat
sevaiva labhya januso'nta eva [9]

One who very carefully recites aloud this Sri Gurvastakam during the brahma-muhurta (the ninety-six minute period before sunrise) attains direct service to the Lord of Vrindavan at the end of life.

Full Surrender
The six constituents of surrender: accept the favourable, reject the unfavourable, humility, surrender, faith that Krishna will protect and take care of us..

 

      

Chant the Pancha-tattva's name, ask them for mercy, pay obeisance to them—because
they have brought the Holy Name to this abode. Without their mercy we cannot chant.
