TRANSLATION

(1)

All glory to you, ‘Guru Maharaj,’

Of sannyasi kings, the Emperor:

The glorious Srila Bhakti Raksak

Dev-Goswami Sridhar.

 

(2)

Extending in this world your Pastimes

As saviour of the fallen,

You delivered all the suffering souls,

Including the most forsaken.

 

(3)

Beholding your holy form

Of concentrated mercy;

The fortunate souls fall in a swoon

Of divine love’s ecstasy.

 

(4)

Your lofty form full of divine emotion

Is nectar for our eyes;

With divine knowledge and shining eyes,

Your effulgence fills the skies.

 

(5)

A golden Sun resplendent,

In robes of saffron dressed;

Adorned with tilak, Tulasi beads,

And with sandal fragrance blessed.

 

(6)

The matchless beauty of your holy form,

Dazzling in its brightness;

Your benevolence of most noble heart,

In the moonglow of love’s sweetness.

 

(7)

Inconceivable genius, affection,

Gravity, magnanimity—

A thunderbolt crushing mundane

knowledge,

The reservoir bestowing divinity.

 

(8)

In the Golden Lord’s Saíkirttan Dance,

You revel ecstatically;

Dayal Nitai, Dayal Nitai!”

You ever call so lovingly.

 

(9)

Eternally present in Nabadwip Dham

With your associates, by your sweet will,

You enjoy your holy Pastimes

On hidden Govarddhan Hill.

 

(10)

You’re the fit recipient of your dignity

In the Gaudiya Acharyya assembly,

The jewel of the Gaudiya-siddhanta

Adorning your chest so nobly.

 

(11)

You’re the living message of Sri Gaura,

You’re the mine of perfect conclusions;

You revealed the Gayatri’s inner purport:

The gem fulfilling all aspirations.

 

(12).

When you speak, one subject alone

Is revealed in ever-new light;

Proper adjustment, and harmony—

All these are your spiritual might.

 

(13)

All your dear Godbrothers

Declare unanimously

They see within your Holiness

The line of Rupa-Saraswati.

 

(14).

Seeing you take the Holy Name,

With Tulasi beads in hand,

Awakens the thought of the Lord

In everybody’s mind.

 

(15)

Your feet, cooling like ten million moons—

In their service all faith do I place;

The nectar of Radha-Govinda’s Pastimes

One day we may drink, by your grace.

 

(16)

O personification of perfect conclusions

Inconceivably one, yet different!

I sing this prayer at your arati

Your lowly and fallen servant

 

Remarks/ Extra Information:

This is a prayer sung by the members of the Sri Caitanya Saraswat Matha in glorification of Sridhara Maharaja.
