Sri Vaishnava Mahima Giti

By Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur

 

(ohe) vaisnava thakuradayara sagara
e dase karuna kari
diya pada-chayasodha he amaya
tomara charana dhari [1]

O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet.

chhaya vega dami'chhaya dosa sodhi'
chhaya guna deha' dase
chhaya sat-sangadeha' he amare
basechhi sangera ase [3]

Subjugate the six urges, rectify the six defects, and bestow the six good qualities upon this servant. Grant me the six kinds of good association. I have sat at your feet, desiring that association.*

ekaki amaranahi paya bala
hari-nama-sankirtane
tumi krpa karisraddha-bindu diya
deha' krsna-nama-dhane [3]

Alone I do not have the ability to properly chant the Lord's Name. Mercifully give me a drop of faith and bestow upon me the wealth of Krishna's Name.

krsna se tomarakrsna dite para
tomara sakati achhe
ami ta' kangala'krsna krsna' bali
dhaitava pachhe pachhe [4]

Krishna is yours. You can give Krishna. You have that power. I am very poor. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you.

(ami) (dhai tava pachhe pachhe)
(krsna dhana pabar ase dhai tava pachhe pachhe)
(tumi dile krsna dite para)
(krsna tomar hrdayer dhan tumi dileo dite para)
(krsna debar sakti-dhara tumi dileo dite para)

I run after you.
I run after you in hope of attaining the wealth of Krishna.
If you desire to give Krishna, you can give Him.
Krishna is the wealth of your heart, you have the power to give Krishna.
If only you desire to give Krishna, you can give Him.

Odds and Ends
'Sometimes devotees do wrong—they fast on Ekadasi and they also make Gaura Nitai fast. Gaura Nitai will not fast, They must be offered everything.'

 

      

What order Gurudev gives, we have to follow that.
