LYRICS:

(1)

hari he!

nīra-dharma-gata, jāhnavī-salile,

pańka-phena dṛṣṭa hoya

tathāpi kakhona, brahma-drava-dharma,

se salila nā chāḍoya

 

(2)

vaiṣnava-śarīra, aprākṛta sadā,

swabhāva-vapura dharme

kabhu nāhe jaḍa, tathāpi ye ninde,

poḍe se viṣamādharme

 

(3)

sei aparādhe, yamera jātanā,

pāya jīva avirata

he nanda-nandana! sei aparādhe,

yeno nāhi hoi hata

 

(4)

tomāra vaiṣṇava, vaibhava tomāra,

āmāre korunā doyā

tabe mora gati, habe tava prati,

pābo tava pada-chāyā

 

TRANSLATION

1) Mud and foam are seen in the waters of the Ganges, for that is the inherent nature of river water. Yet Ganges water never loses its transcendental nature.

 

2) One may likewise find defects in the body of a Vaisnava, yet his body is always spiritual, never material. That person who criticizes the body of a Vaisnava falls into deadly irreligion.

 

3) For such an offense, the fallen soul continuously suffers the tortures of Yamaraja, lord of death. O youthful son of Nanda, I pray that I not be destroyed by committing such an offense.

 

4) The Vaisnava is Yours, and he is Your glory. May he be merciful to me. Then my lifes journey will lead to You, and I will obtain shelter in the shade of Your lotus feet.
