LYRICS:

(1)

hari he!

dāna, pratigraha,† mitho gupta-kathā,

bhakṣana, bhojana-dāna

sańgera lakṣana,† ei chaya hoya,

ihāte bhaktira prāna

bhakti hārāinu,† saḿsārī hoinu,

sudūre rohile hari

āsane bosibe tabe

yoṣit-sańgī-jana,† kṛṣṇābhakta āra,

duńhu-sańga-pariharií

tava bhakta-jana-† sańga anukṣana,

kabe vā hoibe hari!

 

TRANSLATION

1) O Lord Hari, to offer a gift and receive one in return, to give and receive spiritual food, to reveal oneís confidential thoughts and make confidential inquiries ó these are the six characteristics of loving association, and in them is found the very soul of devotion.

 

2) I have failed to understand the Absolute Truth, and by practicing these six activities with non-devotees, either knowingly or unknowingly, I have lost all devotion. Thus I have become a materialist. For me, You, O Lord, remain afar.

 

3) The day I cherish these activities of intimate association with the devotees of Sri Krsna, that day the great goddess of devotion will ascend the throne of my heart.

 

4) When will I give up the company of those who are addicted to women and those who are not devoted to You? When will I get the constant association of Your devotees, O Lord?
