(1)

kṛpā koro vaiṣṇava ṭhākura, sambandha jāniyā

bhajite bhajite, abhimāna hau dūra

'āmi to vaiṣṇava', e buddhi hoile, amānī ho'bo āmi

pratiṣthāśā āsi', hṛdoya dūṣibe, hoibo niraya-gāmī

amānī mānada, hoile kīrtane, adhikāra dibe tumi

tomāra caraṇe, niṣkapaṭe āmi, kāńdiyā luṭibo bhūmi

 

TRANSLATION

1) O Vaisnava Thakura! Please give me your mercy knowledge of my relationship with Bhagavan and the ability to do bhajana, sending my false ego far away.

 

2) If I think "I am a Vaisnava," then I will never become humble. My heart will become contaminated with the hope of receiving honor from others, and I will surely go to hell.

 

3) Give me the mercy that I can renounce the false conception of my being guru and can be your servant. Let me accept without duplicity your remnants and your foot-bath water.

 

4) By thinking that I am superior (guru) and giving my remnants to others, I will bring about my destruction. Let me always identify as your disciple and not accept any worship or praise from others.

 

5) In this way I can renounce the desire for honor for myself and can offer respect to others. Weeping sincerely at your lotus feet and rolling on the ground, I pray that you will give me the ability to chant nama purely.
