Official Name: None

Author: Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Book Name: None

Language: Bengali

LYRICS:

(1)

sata sandhi jara jara, tava ei kalevara,

patana haibe eka-dina

bhasma krmi vistha habe, sakalera ghrnya tabe,

ihate mamata arvacina

 

(2)

ore mana suna mora e satya vacana

e rogera mahausadhi, krsna-nama niravadhi,

niramaya krsna rasayana

 

TRANSLATION

1) A dancing puppet of a hundred joints, your mortal coil in its last moments: this physical form is doomed to destruction. Ashes to ashes, worm and dung, what was beautiful once is a horrible thing;

 

2) To adore it is the gravest misconception. My dear mind, hear the truth attentively: the panacea for this malady - chant Krsna's name constantly; Krsna is the life of immortality."

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

Bhaktivinoda Thakura uses this verse as a purport for Verse 3 for the Siksastakam.
