śrīla prabhupāda gurudeva tihāre caraṇoń meń praṇām
kṛṣṇa bhakti kī jyotī lekar kiyā jagata ujiyārā
ḍūba rahe the bhava sāgara meń dekar bāhoń bārā
sukhamaya jīvana pāne ko tune diyā kṛṣṇa kā nāma
duniyā ke kone kone meń mahāmantra guñjiyārā
diyā bhāgavata dharma kā mārga prema kā rańga caḍhāyā
kṛṣṇa śaraṇa hī jīvana phala hai, kṛṣṇa parama sukha-dhāma

terī dayā kṛpā ke āge mastaka jhuka jhuka jāowe
karte raheńge jīvana bhar ham tune diyā jo kāma
Refrain: I offer obeisances to the Lotus Feet of our spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada.
1) While the world was drowning in the ocean of nescience, he has given the light of devotion to Krsna with his hands that radiated throughout the entire universe. In order to live happily, you have given us the name of Lord Krsna.
2) At each corner of the world, the mahamantra has been heard. You have shown us the path of Bhagavata-dharma, and held up the color of love for Krsna. Surrendering to Lord Krsna is the greatest fruit of life. Lord Krsna is the source of all pleasure.
3) In many ways your glories can be stated until one’s breath stops. By your mercy and kindness showered amongst us, our heads are always lowered to you. Throughout all of life, we will remember what you have done.
This song is featured in Hari Om Sharan’s 1981 ISKCON release “Prabhupada Krpa.” It was rendered in Raga Patdeep in Kaherva Tala.
