Sri Gaudiya Gitanjali

 

Presented here is a collection of Sri Gaudiya Vaishnav kirtans (songs, poetry) chanted regularly at Sri Chaitanya Saraswati Math. Most of the songs are accompanied by the original Bengali text and an audio recording sung by the Acharyas of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math—Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj, Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj.

 


 

The first edition of Sri Gaudiya Gitanjali was published in Bengali in 1983 with the following Preface written by Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj (translated into English by Sripad B.K. Tyagi Maharaj):

 

Preface

 

By the causeless mercy of Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga, a long-standing need has been fulfilled by this publication of Sri Gaudiya-gitanjali within a very short time. You will find in this Sri Gaudiya-gitanjali nearly all the kirtans in the line of Sri Bhakti Vinod—Saraswati that were sung daily and on special days in the time of Srila Prabhupad Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur and that are still now sung in Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math.

Our most worshippable Sri Guru Pada-padma's ever sincere friend and our genuinely affectionate well-wisher, Param Bhagavat Pujyapad Srila Krsnadas Babaji Maharaj, who has now reached the dust of Sri Vrndavan Dham, would greatly satisfy Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharva-Govindasundar by chanting these songs with profound appreciation and tears in his eyes in extremely sweet tunes that defamed even nectar. By joyfully, voluntarily, and proudly spreading the Sanskrit verses composed by our Sri Guru Pada-padma everywhere throughout India and affirming them to be consistent with and of dignity equal to those of Sri Rupa and Sri Raghunath, it is he primarily who has brought about good fortune for the souls of this world and thus felt the greatest joy. So, to preserve holy remembrance of him, his favourite kirtans have been compiled here and offered to his holy lotus hands. May he always mercifully remain pleased with us. This is our prayer.

Earnestly devoted to Sri Guru Pada-padma Om Visnupad Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj and Param Bhagavat Srila Krsnadas Babaji Maharaj, Vaisnava Acharya Tridandi Swami Srimat Viraha Prakas Maharaj has generously contributed to the publication of this book, set a great example in the Vaisnava world, and thus become the recipient of everyone's gratiude.

Amongst all my godbrothers who have received the mercy of Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga and become greatly worthy of recognition for this exceptional achievement of publishing this book within a very short time, the names of Sripad Nimaisundar Brahmachari Vidya Vinod Prabhu and Sriman Visvarup Brahmachari Prabhu are especially deserving of mention.

O Vaisnavas who see no faults! If you will mercifully pardon me for all the errors, as a result of my incapacity in editing, that have diminished the beauty of this collection of supramundane songs and inform this fallen soul of them so that proper service may be rendered in a future edition, I will be most grateful.

Humble, poor, and fallen,
The editor
