SRI GAURA ARATI
(kiba) jaya jaya gorachander aratika sobha
All glory to the beautiful arati to Sri Gorachand in a grove on the banks of the Ganges, which attracts the hearts of all souls throughout the world!
(kiba) daksine nitaichanda bame gadadhara
On Gorachand's right is Nitaichand, and on His left is Gadadhar. Advaita is nearby, and Srivas holds an umbrella.

Gorachand has sat on a jewelled throne. Brahma and the other demigods worship Him (in the company of His devotees).

Narahari and others fan the Lord with chamaras. Sanjay, Mukunda, Vasudev Ghos, and others sing.

Conches, bells, kartals, and mrdangas resound sweetly. The kirtan is most relishable.
(kiba) bahu-koti chandra jini vadana ujjvala
The radiance of the Lord's face surpasses that of millions of moons. The garland of forest flowers around His neck shines.
(kiba) siva-suka-narada preme gada-gada
Siva, Sukadev, and Narad stammer in the ecstasy of love. In this way Bhakti Vinod beholds Gorachand's glory.

This time please give me your grace. O Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur, O Srila Saraswati Thakur, O Gurudev, saviour of the fallen, O Gaurahari, along with your associates, this time please give me your grace.
