nadīyā-godrume nityānanda mahājana

patiyāche nām-haṭṭa jīvera kāraṇa



(śraddhāvān jan he, śraddhāvān jan he)

prabhura ājāy, bhāi, māgi ei bhikṣā

bolo `kṛṣṇa, bhajo kṛṣṇa, koro kṛṣṇa-śikṣā



aparādha-śūnya hoye loho kṛṣṇa-nām

kṛṣṇa mātā, kṛṣṇa pitā, kṛṣṇa dhana-prān



kṛṣṇaera saḿsāra koro chāḍi anācār

jīve doyā, kṛṣṇa-nāmsarva-dharma-sār



1) In the land of Nadiya, on the island of Godruma, the magnanimous Lord Nityananda has opened up the Marketplace of the Holy Name, meant for the deliverance of all fallen souls.


2) O people of faith! O people of faith! By the order of Lord Gauranga, O brothers, I beg these three requests of you: Chant "Krsna!", worship Krsna, and teach others about Krsna.


3) Being careful to remain free of offenses; just take the holy name of Lord Krsna. Krsna is your mother, Krsna is your father, and Krsna is the treasure of your life.


4) Giving up all sinful activities, carry on your worldly duties only in relation to Lord Krsna. The showing of compassion to other souls by loudly chanting the holy name of Krsna is the essence of all forms of religion.
