LYRICS:

(1)
gaurā pahu bhajiyā goinu
prema-ratana-dhana helāya hārāinu

 

(2)
adhane yatana kari dhana teyāginu
āpana karama-doṣe āpani ḍubinu

 

(3)
sat-sańga chāḍi' kainu asate vilāsa
te-kāraṇe lāgilo ye karma-bandha-phāńsa

viṣaya-viṣama-viṣa satata khāinu
gaura-kīrtana-rase magana hainu

 

(5)
keno vā āchaye prāṇa ki sukha pāiyā
narottam dās keno nā gelo mariyā

 

TRANSLATION

1) I did not worship Lord Gauranga Prabhu and thus I became full of suffering. I refused to accept the treasure of pure love of Krsna, and thus I became lost.

 

2) I reject the treasure of love of Krsna and deliberately struggled to become poor. I dived into a host of sinful deeds.

 

3) I rejected the association of the saintly devotees, and instead tried to enjoy among the impious non-devotees. In this way I became caught in the noose of karma.

 

4) I continually drank the virulent poison of sense-gratification. I refused to swim in the nectar of Lord Caitanya's sankirtana movement.

 

5) Why do I stay alive? What happiness do I have? Why did Narottama dasa not die long ago?
