Official Name: Song 7

Author: Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Book Name: Baul Sangit

Language: Bengali





(mana āmār) huńsār theko, bhūlo nāko,

śuddha sahaja tattva-dhane

noile māyār vaśe, avaśeṣe, kāńdte habe ciro-dine



śuddha-jīve jaḍa nāi bhāi, ṭhika bujho tāi,

nije sakhī (se) vṛndāvane

se jakhan kṛṣṇa-candre bhaje, sukhete maje,

madhura-rase anukṣaṇe



jaḍa-dehe tār sādhana-bhakti, jāna-virakti,

deher yātrā dharma-bhāve

se gṛhe thāke, bane bā thāke, majiye ḍāke,

(`kṛṣṇa) bole eka-mane



eke-i to boli sahaja-bhajan, śuddha-mana,

kṛṣṇa pābār eka upāya

ihā chāḍi je āropa kore, sei to mare,

tār to nāhi bhajan hoy



cāńda-bāuler e viśvās, choṭa haridās,

ekaṭu kevala vipathe cale

śacī-suter kṛpāy, dūra hoye, hāy,

nā pāy ār gaura-caraṇe



1) O my dear mind! Please be alert and cautious -- do not forget the treasure that is the principle of suddha sahaja tattva (pure natural truth as opposed to bogus sahajiya tendency). Otherwise ultimately in the grip of Maya you will perpetually weep.


2) The pure spirit soul is not material, O brother -- understand this correctly -- but is actually a female sakhi living in Vrndavana. When the soul worships her Lord Krsna-candra in this mood, then she becomes immersed in pure happiness, incessantly tasting the sweetness of the madhura-rasa.


3) While still living within the material body, she engages in sadhana-bhakti (regulated devotional service), developing detachment through the cultivation of jnana (transcendental knowledge), and thus passes life in accordance with religious principles. Such a devotee lives either at home or in the forest, and remains engrossed in calling out the name "Krsna!" with single-minded diligence.


4) Verily this is called sahaja-bhajan, or natural worship. It is conducted with a purified mind, and is the one and only means for attaining Krsna. Whoever deviates from this process by imposing their own concocted philosophy indeed perishes; their activities are not bhajan.


5) This is the conviction of Cand Baul. The devotee of Lord Caitanya named Chota Haridasa somehow embarked on an improper path; by the mercy of the Son of mother Saci, he was cast away, alas, and did not again attain the lotus feet of Gauranga.
