[gāya gorā madhur svare

Gaurasundar sings in a sweet voice:]

“hare kṛṣṇa hare kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa hare hare
hare rāma hare rāma rāma rāma hare hare” [1]

gṛhe thāka, vane thāka
sadā ‘hari’ bale’ ḍāka
sukhe duḥkhe bhulo nāka
vadane hari-nām kara re [2]

Stay at home, or stay in a forest, regardless, always call out ‘Hari!’ In happiness and in sadness, don’t forget: chant the Lord’s Name aloud.

māyā-jāle baddha ha’ye
āchha michhe kāja la’ye
ekhan-o chetana peye
rādhā-mādhav-nām bala re [3]

Bound in Māyā’s net, you work in vain. Now, while you are still conscious, chant ‘Rādhā-Mādhava’.

jīvana ha-ila śeṣa
nā bhajile hṛṣīkeśa
bhaktivinod-upadeśa
ek-bār nām-rase māta re [4]

Your life is ending, but you have not served Hṛṣīkeś. Bhakti Vinod advises: once relish His Name’s nectar.

(Śrīla Bhakti Vinod Ṭhākur)
