vimala hema jini tanu anupāma re
tāhe śobhe nānā phula-dāma
kadamba keśara jini ekati pulaka re
tara mājhe bindu bindu ghāma
calite nā pāre gorā- cānda gosāņi re
balite nā pāre ādha bola
bhāve avaśa ha-iyā hari hari bolāiyā
ācaṇḍāle dhari dei kola
gamana manthara-gati jini maya-matta hātī
bhāvāveśe ḍhuli ḍhuli jāya
aruṇa vasana-chabi jini prabhātera ravi
gorā ańge laharī khelāya
e hena sampada kāle gorā nā bhajiluņ hele
tuyā pade nā kariluņ āśa
śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya ṭhākura śrī-nityānanda
guṇa gāya vṛndāvana dāsa
1) His peerless form defeats the purest gold and is decorated with a wealth of many kinds of flowers. The hairs on that form, standing erect and interspersed with drops of perspiration, defeat the beauty of the filaments of the kadamba flower.
2) That Lord Gauracanda has lost the power to walk properly. He is even unable to speak more than half words. Overcome with ecstatic love and chanting, Hari! Hari! He embraces everyone, down to the lowly candala, in His arms.
3) Overcome with ecstatic love, His staggering gait defeats the walking of intoxicated elephants. Clothed in saffron garments surpassing the beauty of the rising sun, the movement of His golden limbs resembles the dancing of waves.
4) Alas! At that blissfully fortunate time I did not worship Gaura. I did not yearn to attain His feet. Lamenting in this way, Vrndavan Das sings the glories of Sri Krsna Caitanya and Thakur Sri Nityananda.
This song was featured in Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakuras compilation, Sri Ksanada Gita Cintamani, Ekadasa Ksanada Krsna Ekadasi (the 11th night, eleventh night of the dark portion of the month), as the first song.
This is to be sung in Raga Dhanasi.
