Song Lyrics: Parama Karuna
Purport Author: A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Parama koruṇa, pahū dui jana,
This is a song by Locana dāsa
Ṭhākura, a great devotee and ācārya of the Gauḍīya-sampradāya.
He is declaring that pahū dui jana. Pahū
means lords. Dui jana means
two. Who are the two lords? Nitai Gauracandra.
One is Lord Nitāi, Nityānanda;
another is Lord Śrī Caitanya
Mahāprabhu. So he says that "These two
Lords are very merciful.'' Parama koruṇa,
pahū dui jana.
Parama koruṇa means
very merciful. Nitai Gauracandra.
Therefore he requests everyone, bhajo bhajo bhāi, caitanya nitāi: "My dear brothers, I request you. Just you worship Lord Caitanya and Nityānanda.'' Sudṛḍha biśwāsa kori': "With firm conviction and faith.'' Don't think that this chanting and dancing will not lead you to the desired goal. It will because there is assurance of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu that you will get all perfection by this process. Therefore Locana dāsa Ṭhākura says that "You must have firm faith and conviction.'' It will act. Bhajo bhajo bhāi, caitanya nitāi, sudṛḍha. Sudṛḍha means firm. Biśwāsa kori', with faith and conviction. But what is the process? The process is viṣaya chāḍiyā, se rase majiyā. If you want to be Kṛṣṇa conscious under that process, then you have to give up your engagement of sense gratification. That is the only restriction. You cannot do that. Then it will be very nice. If you give up sense gratification and come to this stage, then it is sure that you will reach to the desired goal. Viṣaya chāḍiya, se rase majiyā, mukhe bolo hari hari: "And you have to simply chant Hare Kṛṣṇa, 'Hari Hari,' that's all, without any motive of sense gratification.''
Dekho dekho bhāi,
tri-bhuvane nāi. He says, "My dear brothers, you just try and
examine that within these three worlds there is nobody like Lord Caitanya or Nityānanda Prabhu.'' Because, paśu pākhī jhure, pāṣāṇa vidare:
"Their mercy and qualities are so great that even birds and beasts, they
are crying, what to speak of human being?'' Actually, when Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu passed
Viṣaya bhuliyā, rohili majiyā, se pade nahilo āśa: "You have no attraction for the lotus feet of Caitanya-Nityānanda. So what can I say? It is only...'' Āpana karama, bhuñjāya śamana: "I can simply think of my misfortune only that Yamaraja, the superintendent of death, he is punishing me in this way, that he is not allowing me to be attracted to this movement.'' This is the statement of Kahoye locana-dāsa: "This is the statement of Locana dāsa Ṭhākura.''
