Author: Narottama Dasa Thakura

Book Name: Prarthana

Language: Bengali

 

LYRICS:

(1)

aruṇa kamala dale, seja bichāibo,

bosāibo kiśora kiśorī

alakā āvṛta, mukha pańkaja manohara,

marakata śyāma hema gaurī

 

(2)

prāṇeśvari! kobe more hobe kṛpā diṭhi?

ājāya āniyā kobe, vividha phula vara,

śunibo vacana duhu miṭhi

 

(3)

mṛgamada tilaka, sindūra bonāyabo,

lepabo candana gandhe.

gāńthi mālatī phula, hāra pahirāobo,

dhāoyābo madhukara vṛnde

 

(4)

lalitā kobe more, vījana deyabo,

vījabo māruta mande

śrama-jala sakala, miṭabo duhu kalevara,

herabo parama ānande

 

(5)

narottama dāsa, āśa pada pańkaja,

sevana madhurī pāne

hobo heno dina, nā dekhiye kona cihna,

duhu jana herabo nayāne

 

TRANSLATION

1) When will I scatter red lotus petals before the charming youthful Divine Couple, whose lotus faces are decorated with curling locks of hair, and who are like a dark sapphire and glittering gold?

 

2) O queen of my life, when will you place Your merciful glance on me? When, directly hearing the orders of the Divine Couple, will I bring them many flowers and sweet candies?

 

3) When will I anoint the Divine Couple with tilaka markings made of musk and red sindura? When will I anoint Their bodies with sandalwood paste? When will I string a garland of jasmine flowers for Them, and then have to flee from the swarm of bumble-bees eager to claim the honey of those flowers?

 

4) When, on Lalita's order will I gently fan the Divine Couple, banishing the perspiration from Their transcendental bodies? When will I see the Divine Couple, my heart filling with spiritual bliss?

 

5) Narottama dasa hopes that some day he will be able to drink the sweet honey of the service of the lotus feet of the Divine Couple. Will that day ever be? I do not see any indication that I will become able to see the Divine Couple directly with my own eyes.
