Language: Bengali




jibana-samapt-kale koribo bhajana,

ebe kori grha-sukha'

kakhan e katha nahi bole bijna-jana,

e deha patanonmukha



aji ba sateka barse abasya marana,

niscinta na thako bhai

jata sighra para, bhajo sri-krsna-carana

jibaner thik nai



samsar nirvana kori' ja'bo ami brndabana

rna-troy sodhibare koritechi sujatana



e asay nahi prayojana

emon durasa base, ja'bo prana abasese,

na hoile dina-bandhucarana-sevana



jadi sumangala cao, sada krsna-nama gao,

grhe thako, bane thako, ithe tarka akarana



1) A wise, experienced man will never say: 'At the end of my life I will worship God, but now I will enjoy happiness in family life'-- for he knows that this body is tottering and unstable, about to drop at any second.


2) Death certainly must come, either today or in about hundred years, so don't live so carefree, brothers! Immediately begin worshiping the lotus feet of Krsna, for there is no fixed certainty of this life.


3) One thinks: 'After spending my worldly life I shall go to Vrndavana, but to purify myself of the three debts I am endeavoring very hard now'.


4) This type of idea is not the ultimate goal of life. By the influence of such a nonsensical desire, your life will depart in the end without your ever having worshiped the lotus feet of -dina-bandhu-, the dear most Friend of the fallen.


5) If you want the topmost auspiciousness, then just sing always the name of Krsna whether you live at home or in the forest. All these other arguments described here are simply aimless excuses.
