kali-yuge sri-caitanya abani karila dhanya
patita-pabana yara bana
purabe radhara bhabe gauranga la-iha ebe
nija rupa dhari kanca sona
gauranga patita-pabana abatari
kali bhujangama dekhi hari-name jiba rakhi
apani ha-ila dhanvantari
gadadhara adi yata maha maha bhagabata
tara saba gora-guna gaya
akhila bhubana pati goloke yanhara sthiti
hari bali abani lothaya
sonari puraba guna murachaya punah punah
parase dharani ulasita
carana kamala kiba nakhara ujora sota
gobinda-dasa se bancita
1) In Kali-yuga, Lord Caitanya made the earth fortunate and glorious. He was the purifier of the fallen souls. At that time He manifested a form effulgent like gold, a form effulgent like Sri Radha’s.
2. (Refrain) Descending to this world, Lord Caitanya purified the fallen souls. Seeing the snake of Kali-yuga (biting the fallen souls), Lord Caitanya was like Dhanvantari (demigod of medicine). Giving them the medicine of Lord Krsna's holy names, He rescued the fallen souls.
3) Gadadhara and the other great devotees chanted Lord Gaura's glories. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, the master of the all the worlds, the master who stays in the spiritual world of Goloka, descended to this world. He chanted "Hari!" In ecstasy He rolled on the ground.
4) Remembering the glories of His previous incarnation, He fell unconscious again and again. At these times the earth became filled by bliss by His touch. The touch of His lotus feet and lotus toenails made the whole world glorious. Only Govinda dasa was cheated of Their touch.
This song is to be sung in Raga Bhatiyara.
