Song Name: Namo Namah Tulasi Krsna Preyasi (I)

Official Name: Tulasi Kirtana

Author: Krsna Dasa

Book Name: None

Language: Bengali

Raga: Khamaja

Tala: Prabhupada/Kaherva

 

This is the song worshipping the tulasi plant, the holy basil that is very dear to Lord Krsna and is the personalities of devotional service. The ceremony of worshipping the tulasi takes place after the Mangala Arati ceremony of the morning program. As far as rhythm is concerned, it is arranged in a very unique format that it is can be somewhat difficult to sing.

 

NOTE: The introductory verse (vṛndāyai tulasī devyai) is not usually accompanied musically, as everyone is offering obeisances during the introductory prayer.

LYRICS:

(1)
namo namaḥ tulasī kṛṣṇa-preyasi namo namaḥ
rādhā-kṛṣṇa-sevā pābo ei abilāṣī

 

(2)
ye tomāra śaraṇa loy, tara vāchā pūrṇa hoy
kṛpā kori' koro tāre vṛndāvana-vāsi

 

(3)
mora ei abhilāṣa, vilāsa kuje dio vāsa
nayana heribo sadā yugala-rūpa-rāśi

 

(4)
ei nivedana dhara, sakhīra anugata koro
sevā-adhikāra diye koro nīja dāsī

 

(5)
dīna kṛṣṇa-dāse koy, ei yena mora hoy
śrī-rādhā-govinda-preme sadā yena bhāsi
