Sri Sri Gaurasundarer Avirbhav Vasare
By Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj
Why has the Golden Sun appear today of all days clad in saffron garb? Why has exquisitely beautiful spring poured into this otherwise void world?
Why have all the trees, shrubs, and creepers swell with beauty at this astonishing news? Why do bees and birds reel in joy like this, raising waves of their music?
Why do all the fallen and wicked souls explode in roar out of intense joy? Why do all the people who are so proud of their knowledge, birth and wealth look so down and filled with misery?
The wind in the sky clears all terror and inundates with reassurance. The hearts of all saintly persons is finally intoxicated with the happiness spreading all around.
What a wondrous sound is heard in all four directions uttered by so many people? This world has become filled with the Holy Names of the Lord—“Hare!”, “Krishna!”, “Rama!”, “Hari Hari Hari bol!”
Pious souls worship Phalguni Purnima, the festival of swings and colours, with deep affection. I do not know what sort of divine mood arose in the depths of their hearts’ core.
Why has the sun become so overwhelmed and immersed into intensely golden colour as the evening came? How beautiful the Hill of East looks in the rays of Golden Moon!
Then, some bluish hue entered the Golden Moon, and this blueness dissolved into its golden colour. All the saintly persons chant, astonished by this beauty. May this transcendental pure love always remain as pure (may it never become tarnished).
All the great saintly persons say that this eclipse is a mere pretext followed by Nama-sankirtan. When the Golden Moon (Gaurachandra) arises, it destroys all sins of Rahu (eclipse)—the Moon is adorned by the wealth of divine love.
Those who know the essence, say with a great joy that the bluish hue dissolves within the Moon. Appearing in this world in disguise, the Lord hides Himself within the Moon of Sri Radha’s divine mood.
Such is the glory of Sri Shyamarao Krishna who is adorned with the heart and halo of Sri Radha. Gauranga has arisen along with the divine love and the Holy Name! Please chant, “Jaya Jaya Gora!”
