dekha dekha aparupa gauranga bilasa
puna giri-dharana puraba nilakrama
nabadwipe karila prakasa
suddha-bhakti gobardhana puja kara jagaj-jana
e-i bidhi dila kali majhe
srabanadi naba anga kalpa-taru-maya anga
panca-rasa phale taha saje
pulaka ankura sobha asru jana-mano-lobha
manda bayu bepathu sundara
nijendriya upacare puja se-i giri-bare
prema-mani pabe irta bara
dekhiya lokera gati kali-yuga-surapati
kope tanu kampita ha-ila
adharama airabate kumati indrani sathe
sa-sainyete sajiya a-ila
kama-megha barirane krodha-bajra-niksepane
lokera ha-ila bada dara
lobha-moha-sila-ghate matsaryadi khara-bate
dhairya-dharma ude nirantara
janiya jibera daya sri-gauranga daya-maya
upaya cintila mane mane
bhakta-bhava saroddhara nije kari angi-kara
bhakti-giri karila dharane
tanhara asraye loka pasarila duhkha-soka
kali-bhaya khandila sakale
tabe kali-deba-raja peye parabhaba laja
stuti kare carana-kamale
aparadha ksama-iya kahe kichu dina haiya
yata jiba prabhura asraya
yeba taba guna
e-i satya karinu niscaya
prabhu tahe daya kaila dhanya kali nama haila
adhyapi-o ghoraye samsare
caitanya-dasete bale gobardhana-lila-chale
yuge yuge jibera uddhare
(Refrain) Look! Look at Lord Gaura's wonderful pastimes! As in the past He lifted Govardhana Hill. So again He lifted it in Navadvipa and Nilacala.
1) As the people of the world were worshiping Kali-yuga, Lord Gaura taught them to worship instead the Govardhana Hill of pure devotional service. That hill has nine parts, beginning with the part of hearing the Lord's glories. On that hill are many kalpa-taru trees whose fruits are the five rasas.
2) The grass on that hill is the devotees’ bodily hairs standing erect in ecstasy. The streams on that hill are the tears that flow from the devotees’ yearning hearts. The gentle breezes blowing by that hill are the devotees’ trembling in ecstasy. Using their own senses as the paraphernalia of worship, the people woprshiped that Govardhana Hill of devotional service. At the end they attained their desired boon, the jewels of ecstatic spiritual love.
3) Seeing what the people of the world had done, the King Indra of Kali-yuga trembled with rage. Taking with him the Airavata elephant of impiety, the Queen Indrani of wicked thoughts, and the great hosts of his armies, that Indra came to this world.
4) As the clouds of lust showered torrents of rain and the thunderbolts of anger fell, the people of the world became afraid. As hailstones of greed an illusion fell and a sharp hurricane wind of envy and other vices blew, the people's peacefulness flew away.
5) Aware of the calamity that had fallen on the people, merciful Lord Gauranga thought and thought, trying to find a solution. Deciding that to life the life of a devotee is the best solution, He lifted the Govardhana Hill of devotional service.
6) When the people took shelter under that hill, their suffering and lamentation fled far away. Their fear of Kali-yuga was broken into pieces. The embarrassed King Indra of Kali-yuga was defeated and he spoke many prayers before Lord Krsna’s lotus feet.
7) Now humbled, he asked forgiveness. He was an individual soul taking shelter of the Supreme Lord. He said, “O Lord, I praise Your glories. Please do not punish me. You are the Supreme Truth. This I know for certain."
8) Then Lord Gauranga gave mercy to him. That is why Kali-yuga is known as a fortunate and glorious time. In this world to this day Kali-yuga is famous in this way. Caitanya dasa says: Yuga after yuga, manifesting this pastime like the lifting of Govardhana Hill, the Lord delivers the fallen souls.
