By Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur
udila aruna purava-bhage
At the crack of dawn the jewel of the brahmans, Sri Gorachand, awakes. Taking His devotees with Him, He goes out about the town.
'tathai tathai' bajala khola
The mridangas resound 'tathai tathai' to the beat of the cymbals as Gaurasundar's golden form sways with ecstatic love and His footbells jingle.
mukunda madhava yadava hari
He calls out, "Chant aloud Mukunda, Madhava, Yadava, Hari! Uselessly you pass the night asleep and the day decorating your body.
emana durlabha manava-deha
"Having attained this rare human body, what are you thinking? If you do not serve Krishna now, lastly you will fall into shame.
udita tapana ha-ile asta
"When the shining sun sets, you become busy, considering that the day has passed. So why are you being lazy now? Why don't you serve the Lord of your heart?
jivana anitya janaha sara
"Understand the essence: life is temporary and filled with all sorts of adversity. Carefully taking shelter of the Name, engage in your work."
krsna-nama-sudha kariya pana
Drink the nectar of Krishna's Name and soothe Bhakti Vinod's soul. There is nothing to be had but the Name in all the fourteen worlds.
Desiring to bless all souls, the Lord's sweet Name comes to this world and arises like the Sun within the sky of the heart to dispel the darkness of ignorance.
