His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Evening class on Sri Lalita-samptami
12 September 2013, part 2


Narottam is praying for the association of those who chant the Name of Gauranga, and I am also praying to Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur... He gave so much explanation very nicely,

কবে হবে বল, সে দিন আমার ।
অপরাধ ঘুচি' শুদ্ধ নামে রুচি
কৃপা-বলে হবে হৃদয়ে সঞ্চার ॥

kabe habe bala se dina amara
aparadha ghuchi suddha name ruchi
krpa-bale ha'be hrdaye sanchara

"Please tell me, when will that day be mine? When will my offences be removed? When will the taste for the pure Name arise in my heart by the power of mercy?"

"When will the pure Holy Name arise in my heart?"

নাচিয়া গাইয়া, বেড়াইব ছুটে,
বাতুলের প্রায় ছাড়িয়া বিচার ॥

nachiya gaiya, bedaiba chhute,
vatulera praya chhadiya vichara

"When will I dance, sing, and run about, without any thinking as though mad?"

When that day will come? When will I become crazy, when will I become mad chanting, "Krishna! Krishna!"...

কবে নবদ্বীপে সুরধুণী-তটে
'গৌর-নিত্যানন্দ' বলি' নিষ্কপটে ।
নাচিয়া গাইয়া, বেড়াইব ছুটে,
বাতুলের প্রায় ছাড়িয়া বিচার ॥
কবে হবে বল, সে দিন আমার ।

kabe navadvipe, suradhuni-tate,
'gaura-nityananda' bali' niskapate
nachiya gaiya, edaiba chhute,
vatulera praya chhadiya vichara
kabe habe bolo se dina amar

"When will I wander along the banks of the Ganges in Nabadwip, sincerely calling out, 'Gaura-Nityananda!', while dancing, singing, and running about, without any thinking as though mad? When will that day be mine?"

কবে নিত্যানন্দ মোরে করি' দয়া ।
ছাড়াইবে মোর বিষয়ের মায়া ॥

kabe nityananda more kari' daya
chhadaibe mora visayera maya

"When will Nityananda be compassionate to me and relieve me from the mundane illusion?"

আর কবে নিতাইচাঁদ করুণা করিবে ।
সংসার-বাসনা মোর কবে তুচ্ছ হ'বে ॥

ara kabe nitaichand karuna karibe
samsara-vasana mora kabe tuchchha ha'be

"When will Nitaichand give me His mercy? When will my material desires lose all their importance?"

When will Nityananda give me some mercy and my material desires become removed from my heart?... I am suffering so much!

asa-pasa sata sata klesa deya avirata
pravrtti-urmira tahe khela
kama-krodha-adi chhaya batapade deya bhaya
avasana haila asi' bela

"The shackles of hundreds and hundreds of desires constantly trouble me, and the waves of the tendency to enjoy play all round me. The six bandits of lust, anger, greed, pride, illusion, and envy torment me, and now the time of my death has come."

I suffering so much, I am so unhappy because of too many desires and hopes... "Kama-krodha-adi chhaya": so many dacoits and cheaters are attacking me! I pass year after year busy with all sorts of things, and now my life is finished! "Avasane haila asi bela": now the sun is setting for me, it is going... The sun rises and the sun sets, and then the time is finished...

...I am thinking how Lalita Devi fulfilled the desires of Radharani—whatever Radharani wants, She gets everything. When I was in Vrindavan, they told some story in one of the places. After rasa-lila, Lalita Devi thought, "Everybody is thirsty now! They need water! They are so tired, sweating so much—they need water!" She thought in this way and a well appeared there. The Lord provides everything, the Lord can give everything.

কৃষ্ণ জগতের গুরু কৃষ্ণ বাঞ্ছাকল্পতরু
নাবিক সে ভব-পারাবারে ॥

krsna jagatera guru krsna vancha kalpa-taru
navika se bhava-parabare

"Krishna is the spiritual master of the entire universe, He is a wish-fulfilling desire-tree, and He is the captain of the boat in the ocean of material existence."

শুনহে রসিক জন কৃষ্ণগুণ অগণন
অনন্ত কহিতে নাহি পারে ।
কৃষ্ণ জগতের গুরু কৃষ্ণ বাঞ্ছাকল্পতরু
নাবিক সে ভব-পারাবারে ॥

suna, he rasika-jana krsna guna aganana
ananta kahite nahi pare
krsna jagatera guru krsna vancha kalpa-taru
navika se bhava-parabare

"Listen, great relisher of rasa! The transcendental qualities of Sri Krishna are innumerable, even Anantadev is not capable of describing them! Krishna is the spiritual master of the entire universe, He is a wishfulfilling desire-tree, and He is the captain of the boat in the ocean of material existence."

হৃদয় পীড়িত যা'র কৃষ্ণ চিকিৎসক তার
ভবরোগ নাশিতে চতুর ।

hrdaya pirita ja'ra krsna chikitsaka ta'ra
bhava roga nasite chatura

"Krishna is a doctor for those whose hearts are diseased, He is very expert at destroying the heart disease of material existence."

Those who have some desires, they can surrender everything to Krishna and serve Krishna—in this way they can get relief...

কৃষ্ণবহির্ম্মুখ জনে প্রেমামৃত বিতরণে
ক্রমে লয় নিজ অন্তঃপুর ॥

krsna bahirmukha jane prema-amrta vitarane
krame laya nija antahpura

"By distributing the nectar of ecstatic love to all the inimical souls, He gradually takes them back to His own confidential realm."

Jay Srila Guru Maharaj ki jay!

We do not have any quality, qualification, or anything else, but today, on the appearance day of Sri Lalita Devi we can pray to her that she may please engage us in some service—that she may take us into her circle and give us some service...

Do not follow your mind: surrender to your Guru
We cannot follow our mind. We do not know what will be good for us, so what instructions Gurudev gives, what is Gurudev's desire, and what will happen—depend on him, give up everything to him.
