LYRICS

(1)

jaya re jaya re jaya, ṭhākura narottama,
prema bhakati mahārāja
yākara mantrī, abhinna kalevara,
rāmacandra kavirāja

(2)

prema mukuṭa maṇi, bhūṣaṇa bhāvāvali,
ańgahi ańga virāja
nṛpa āsana, kheturī māha baiṭhato,
sańgahi bhakata samāja

 

(3)

sanātana rūpa kṛta, grantha bhāgavata,
anudina koroto vicāra
rādhā mādhava, yugala ujjvala rasa,
paramānanda sukha sāra

(4)

śrī sańkīrtana, viṣaya rase unamata,
dharmādharma nāhi jāno
yoga dāna vrata, ādi bhaye bhāgato,
royato karama geyāna

 

(5)

bhāgavata śāstra gaṇa, yo dei bhakati dhana,
tāko gaurava koru āpa
sāńkhya mīmāḿsaka, tarkādika joto,
kampita dekhi paratāpa

(6)

abhakata caura, dūrahi bhāgi rohu,
niyaṛe nāhi parakāśa
dīna hīna jane, deyalo bhakati dhane,
vańcita govinda dāsa

 

TRANSLATION

1-2) “All glories all glories to Thakura Narottama, the great king of loving devotion, whose counselor was Ramacandra Kaviraja, who was non different from him! His prema was the crown jewel of all the ornamental symptoms of ecstasy he showed on his body. He sat on the throne of the kingdom of Kheturi in the company of his assembled devotees.”

 

3-4) “Every day he discussed the theistic scriptures compiled by Sri Sanatana and Rupa Gosvami, which contain the splendid amorous flavours of Sri Radha and Mddhava and that are the essence of topmost ecstasy. In the ecstasy of sri sankirtana he did not know what was pious and what was impious. Yoga, charity, vows and other kinds of piety fled far away, while fruitive activities and non-dualistic knowledge were weeping.”


5-6) “He upheld the honour of those theistic scriptures that bestow the treasure of devotion and when they saw his might, sankhya, mimamsaka, tarka and other speculative philosophies trembled. The thief-like non devotees fled far away, unable to shine their light in his vicinity. He gave the treasure of devotion to lowly and fallen fellows, and Govinda dasa covets the same.”
