LYRICS: Udilo Aruna

Author: Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Book Name: Gitavali

Language: Bengali

This is the first song of Bhaktivinoda Thakuras Gitavali. This describes Lord Caitanya awakening and starting kirtana in the day, as well as delivering an important message to all souls who have not arisen spiritually. This song can either be sung in kaherva tala, in which the guide for playing is the same as Samsara Davanala Lidha Loka. However, this song is rendered in Bengali Ektal, which consists of twelve beats per cycle.

 

There are many songs in this meter and raga.

LYRICS:

(1)
udilo aruṇa pūraba-bhāge,
dwija-maṇi gorā amani jāge,
bhakata-samūha loiyā sāthe,
gelā nagara-brāje

 

(2)
'tāthaī tāthaī bājalo khol,
ghana ghana tāhe jhājera rol,
preme ḍhala ḍhala soṇāra ańga,
caraṇe nūpura bāje

 

(3)
mukunda mādhava yādava hari,
bolena bolo re vadana bhori',
miche nida-baśe gelo re rāti,
divasa śarīra-sāje

 

(4)
emana durlabha mānava-deho,
pāiyā ki koro bhāva keho,
ebe bhajile yaśodā-suta,
carame poribe lāje

 

(5)
udita tapana hoile asta,
dina gelo boli' hoibe byasta,
tabe keno ebe alasa hoy,
bhaja hṛdoya-rāje

 

(6)
jīvana anitya jānaha sār,
tāhe nānā-vidha vipada-bhār,
nāmāśraya kori' jatane tumi,
thākaha āpana kāje

 

(7)
jīvera kalyāna-sādhana-kām,
jagate āsi' e madhura nām,
avidyā-timira-tapana-rūpe,
hṛd-gagane birāje

 

(8)
kṛṣṇa-nāma-sudhā koriyā pān,
jurāo bhakativinoda-prāṇ,
nāma binā kichu nāhiko āro,
caudda-bhuvana-mājhe
