śrībāsa-bacana śrabaṇa koriyā
śoka parihari' mṛta śiśu rākhi'
hari-rase dilo mana
śrībāsa takhana ānande
ańgane ailo punaḥ
nāce gorā-sane sakala pāsari'
cāri daṇḍa rātre mārilo kumāra
ańgane keho nā jāne
śrī-nāma-mańgale tṛtīya prahara
rajanī atīta gāne
āji keno pāi duḥkha
bujhi ei gṛhe kichu amańgala
tabe bhakta-jana nibedana kore
śuni' gorā rāya bole hāya
marame pāinu byathā
keno nā kohile āmāre takhana
snehete mājilo tabe
Hearing these words of Srivasa Pandita,
all those chaste and faithful ladies gave up their lamentation for the dead
son, because Srivasa had satisfied their minds by
informing them of the transcendental mellows of Lord Hari.
Then Srivasa again came out into the courtyard and,
overwhelmed with joy, resumed dancing with Lord Caitanya
and loudly sang the glories of the Son of Nanda
Maharaja, completely forgetting about what had just happened.
The boy had expired only 1 – ½ hours after dark, but out in the courtyard no
one had known anything due to the loud kirtana. Then
for 9 hours there was continuous chanting of the auspicious holy names. Thus
the entire night had elapsed in this ecstatic singing.
Then the kirtana stopped, and Lord Gaurahari said, "Why am I feeling some unhappiness
today? I can understand that something inauspicious has happened in this house
which has robbed Me of My bliss."
Then the devotees related to the Lord the story of the death of Srivasa's son. Hearing this news, the Lord loudly
exclaimed, "Oh no! What has happened? Now the core of My
heart has become pierced with so much unbearable pain!"
"Why didn't you inform Me of this calamity when
it had just happened?" Now, Bhaktivinoda has
completely lost himself in the affection that he Lords shows to His own
