Author: Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Book Name: Kalyana Kalpataru

Language: Bengali




mana, tumi bhalabasa kamer taranga

jada-kama parihari', suddha-kama seba kori',

bistaraho aprakrta ranga



anitya jadiya kama, santi-hina abisrama,

nahi tahe pipasar bhanga

kamer samagri cao, tabu taha nahi pao,

paileo chare taba sanga



tumi seba koro' ja're, se toma' bhajite nare,

dukha jwale binoder anga

charo tabe micha-kama, hao tumi satya-kama,

bhajo vrndavaner ananga

janhar kusuma-sare, taba nitya-kalebare,

byapt ha'be prema antaranga



1) My dear mind, you are so fondly attached to rolling to and fro upon the waves of lust. Abandoning your sensual material lust, just render service in pure spiritual lust and thus extend yourself into the realm of transcendentally uncommon pastimes.


2) It is not possible to quench the thirst of this temporary mundane lust, for its nature is to continuously create a disturbing situation. Although you desire the things associated with lust, still you can not always get them. And even if you do get the things you lust after, you cannot keep them, for such temporary things will give up your company very soon.


3) My dear mind, you faithfully render service to this mundane lust, but I see that it actually cannot give you anything substantial; rather, it simply burns my entire body with miserable dissatisfaction. So then just give up all your false material lust and just accept the true, spiritual lust by worshiping the Cupid of Vrndavana. Then, He will shoot your spiritual body full of His flower arrow, and you will thereby become filled to the brim with eternal ecstatic love for Him.
