html Partese do princpio que, em essncia, somos partes integrantes de Deus, constitudos de conhecimento, eternidade e bem-aventurana, mas que, ao nascermos neste mundo esquecemos disso e nos envolvemos na falsa concepo de eu e meu. Essa iluso (Maya) que seria o mal da humanidade e portanto precisa ser reconhecida, aceita e transformada. Este profundo processo de auto-conhecimento e despertar da conscincia se desenvolve atravs de elementos que variam entre grupos de estudo e cursos intensivos que incluem vivncias e metodologias tericas. Estes elementos se apiam nos trs principais pilares que sustentam o Caminho: Realizao do Conhecimento (Vijnana), Servio em devoo (Bhakti) e Adorao (Archana). Este Caminho conduz o buscador do estado de separao para a unio, da sombra para a luz, da iluso para a verdade. O Caminho do Corao no psicoterapia, porm, reconhece que uma conscientizao profunda poder levar espiritualidade e que um trabalho espiritual autntico abordar a esfera mais ntima do ser humano. Portanto, traduz uma abordagem ampla e um elo entre a cincia e a espiritualidade.

O readers, please hear this hymn of the poet Jayadeva, which is most excellent, an awarder of happiness, a bestower of auspiciousness, and is the best thing in this dark world. (12) O Lord Krsna, I offer my obeisances unto You, who appear in the forms of these ten incarnations. In the form of Matsya You rescue the Vedas, and as Karma You bear the Mandara Mountain on Your back. As Varaha You lift the earth with Your tusk, and in the form of Narasimha You tear open the chest of the daitya Hiranyakasipu. In the form of Vmana You trick the daitya king Bali by asking him for only three steps of land, and then You take away the whole universe from him by expanding Your steps. As Parasurama You slay all of the wicked ksatriyas, and as Ramacandra You conquer the raksasa king Ravana. In the form of Balarama You carry a plow with which You subdue the wicked and draw toward You the River Yamuna. As Lord Buddha You show compassion toward all the living beings suffering in this world and a the end of the Kali-yuga You appear as Kalki to bewilder the mlecchas [degraded low-class men].

Further Purports:

Matsya Purport: The first avatara signifies the restoration of true knowledge (Vedas), recovered from the deluge of egoism, which has to be destroyed in the process. Kurma Purport: The incarnation of God in the Tortoise form during the churning of the Ocean, signifies that the churning of the ocean of experience with the churn of knowledge, towards the Absolute can rest only on the immovable, all-sufficient, all-sustaining basis of self-evident truth, symbolized by the Tortoise avatara. Varha Purport: The Boar avatara is identified with sacrifice both in the Vishnupurana and Bhagavata. As sacrifice (of worldly affairs) is essential for the stability of mind for contemplation on God, it is symbolized by the Boar form of the Lord. Nrsmha Purport: This avatara illustrates that a true devotee is fearless (as Prahlda) and God comes to his rescue. Vmana Purport: The Dwarf avatara shows that valour (as exemplified by King Bali) can find its fulfilment only in complete surrender. Parasurma Purport: When the rulers, endowed with power for protection of the subjects, had however degenerated into an oppressive tyranny, it had to be crushed ruthlessly. This is

illustrated by the Parasurama avatara. Rma Purport: The Sri Rma avatara is an ideal demonstration of how a man can rise to divinity, by unswerving adherence to dharma, in all its details. Kalki Purport: The yet to be avatara is Kalki, the mighty warrior, born in a pious family, to rid the world of the oppression of its unrighteous rulers.

Comment
The Dasavatara Stotra is a Hymn in salutation to the ten incarnations of Lord Maha Vishnu. The Stotra forms the first section of Gita Govinda, the masterpiece work of Sri Jayadeva. He was a court poet of King Lakshmanasena, who ruled Bengal during the 12th Century. Sri Jayadeva was a great devotee of Lord Krishna and a mystic. His mastery of Sanskrit language was matched by his extraordinary talent in music and dancing. The theme of Gita Govindam is the love of Radha Devi and Sri Krishna, symbolizing the longing and striving of the individual, for communion with God, culminating in their blissful union. Incarnation is a special manifestation of God for the protection of the good, the destruction of evil and the establishment of Dharma. Holy scriptures, such as Bhagavata Purana enumerate 24 incarnations, including Kapila, the great sage and founder of the Sankhya school of philosophy, and Rishabha, whom the Jains revere as their first prophet. Worship of the incarnation and contemplation of His attributes are for most men and women the best preparation for unitive knowledge of Godhead. Sri Jayadeva in the Dasavatara Stotra enumerates the ten incarnations of the Lord. Sri Krishna Chaitanya, the great Vaishnavite saint took inspiration from his songs. In the Sri Krishna temple of Guruvayoor in Kerala, Jayadeva's songs are sung daily in Carnatic Music ragas. In Nepal, they are sung during the Spring festivals. Guru Arjun Singh included two of Jayadeva's songs in Adi Guru Grantha, the holy scripture of the Sikhs.

PURPORT by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupda This song of Srila Narottama Dasa Thakura is very famous among devotees in Bengal and Orissa. When Lord Caitanya returned from Gaya, where He was initiated by Sri Isvara Puri, He was completely transformed into a God-intoxicated personality whom His students of grammar had never known before. Instead of teaching ordinary grammar studies, Lord Caitanya explained every sentence in such a way that every Sanskrit word and every letter was understood to indicate Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This form of grammar was later on developed by Srila Jiva Gosva mi in a book called Hari-namamrta-vyakarana, the Grammar of the Nectar and Name of Sri Hari. But Lord Caitanya's students thought that their teacher had become mad, and they rubbed His head with Visnu oil, an oil that cools the brain. Finally they asked Him, "You say that everything means Krsna and we should ultimately always be chanting the names of Krsna. Just how should we do this?" Then Lord Caitanya began to sing the names of Krsna and clap His hands, and He began His nama-sankirtana movement. The names He sang are the first two lines of this song, and Narottama Das Thakura and others have placed these names in the beginning of their writings to immortalize these events in the memory of everyone. Narottama Dasa Thakura chants the names of Lord Caitanya, Nityananda, Sri Advaita and Sita (Lord Advaita's consort). Since Lord Hari, the spiritual matter and the Srimad Bhagavad-gita are all on the transcendental platform, they are given the same respect. Then Srila Narottama Dasa chants the names of the six Gosvamis. "I offer my obeisances at their feet," he sings, "which destroy sufferings accumulated over many long years. I am the servant of these six Gosvamis, and the dust of their lotus feet is my five kinds of foodstuffs. To solve their lotus feet and keep the association of devotees is my only business, birth after birth." When the six Gosvamis were staying at Vrndavana, they revealed the eternal transcendental pastimes of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna. Before Lord Caitanya the exact location of the places of Lord Krsna's pastimes we're not known, and therefore Lord Caitanya instructed the Gosvamis to uncover the holy places and construct temples. The temple of Sri Radha-Damodara is situated near the location of the rasa dance, and Srila Rupa Gosvami and the other Gosvamis used to gather there and discuss the topics of their literatures, which scientifically explained the super-excellent pastimes of Sri-Sri Radha-Krsna. Narottama Dasa Thakura says, "In great ecstasy shout the name of Hari and serve the real transcendental master and devotees." He concludes by saying, "With all hopes in the lotus feet of my guru and the holy Vaisnavas. Narottama Dasa sings the sankirtana of Lord Hari:- Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna-Krsna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare."

TRANSLATION Sing, O mind of Mine (1) O mind just worship the lotus feet of the son of Nanda, which make one fearless. Having obtained this rare human birth, cross over this ocean of worldly existence through the association of saintly persons. (2) Both in the day and at night I remain sleepless, suffering the pains of the heat and cold, the wind and the rain. For a fraction of flickering happiness I have uselessly served wicked and miserly men. (3) What assurance of real happiness is there in all of one's wealth, youthfulness, sons, and family members? This life is tottering like a drop of water on a lotus petal; therefore you should always serve and worship the divine feet of Lord Hari. (4) It is the desire and great longing of Govinda Dasa to engage himself in the nine processes of bhakti, namely hearing the glories of Lord Hari and chanting those glories, constantly remembering Him and offering prayers to Him, serving the Lord's lotus feet, serving the

Supreme Lord as a servant, worshiping Him with vowers and incense and so forth, serving Him as a friend, and completely offering the Lord one's very self.

PURPORT by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada PURPORT by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada This song was sung by Narottama Dasa Thhakura, a great devotee and acarya in the Gaudiya Vaisnava-sampradaya, the disciplic succession coming down from Lord Caitanya. Narottama Dasa Thakura has written many songs, which are recognized as authoritative by all Vaisnavas. He has sung these songs in simple Bengali language, but the purport--the deep meaning of his songs--is very significant.

In this song he says, 'gauranga' bolite habe pulaka sarira. One has attained the perfection of chanting when as soon as he chants the name of Lord Gauranga, who initiated this sankirtana movement, at once there is shivering in his body. This is not to be imitated, but Narottama dasa Thakura is asking, "When will that opportune moment come to us when there will be shivering of the body as soon as we chant Lord Gauranga's name?'' And after the shivering--'hari hari' bolite nayane ba'be nira: "While chanting Hare Krsna, there will be tears in the eyes.' Then he says, ara kabe nitai-cander koruna hoibe. We are all asking about the mercy of Lord Nityananda. Nityananda is supposed to be the original spiritual master, so we have to approach Gauranga, Lord Caitanya, through the mercy of Lord Nityananda. What is the symptom of a person who has achieved the causeless mercy of Lord Nityananda? Narottama Dasa Thakura says that the symptom of one who has actually received the causeless mercy of Lord Nityananda is that he has no more material desire. Ara kabe nitai-cander koruna hoibe samsara-basana mora kabe tuccha ha'be. Samsara-basana- means "desire for material enjoyment," and Narottama Dasa wonders when it will become very insignificant. Of course, as long as we have bodies we have to accept so many material things, but not in the spirit of enjoyment, but only to keep body and soul together. As long as the mind is too much absorbed in materialistic thought, one cannot enter into the kingdom of Vrndavana. But Narottama Dasa Thakura says, visaya chariya kabe suddha ha'be mana kabe hama herabo sri-brndabana. "When the mind is completely purified, being freed from material anxieties and desires, then I shall be able to understand Vrndavana and the conjugal love of Radha and Krsna, and then my spiritual life will be successful. Narottama Dasa says further, rupa-raghunata-pade hoibe akuti: "When shall I be very much eager to study the books left by the six Gosvamis?" Akuti means "eagerness." Because Rupa Gosvami is the father of devotional service, he has written a book called Bhakti-rasamrtasindhu, in which there are nice directions on devotional service. These topics are also dealt with in Caitanya- caritamrta and other books, and we have given the summary of those directions in our book Teachings of Lord Caitanya. One has to learn of the conjugal loving affairs of RadhaKrsna through the teachings of these six Gosvamis. Narottama Dasa Thakura directs us not to try to understand the conjugal love of Radha-Krsna by our own endeavor. We should try to understand this yugala-piriti, conjugal love, under the direction of the Gosvamis.

Word for Word and translation


1 parama koruna-supremely merciful; pahu dui jana-the two Lords; nitai gauracandra-Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauracandra; saba avatara-of all incarnations; sara-They are the essence; siromani-and the crest jewels; kevala ananda-kanda-exclusive fountains of bliss. 1. The two Lords, Nitai-Gauracandra, are very merciful. They are the essence of all incarnations. The specific significance of these incarnations is that They introduced a process of chanting and dancing that is simply joyful. 2 bhajo bhajo-just worship, just worship; bhai-O brothers!; caitanya nitai-Lord Caitanya and Nityananda; sudrdha visvasa kori'-with firm faith; visaya chadiya-giving up sense gratification; se rase-in that mellow of worship; majiya-

absorbing; mukhe-with your mouth; bolo hari hari-chant Hari! Hari! 2. My dear brother, I request that you just worship Lord Caitanya and Nityananda with firm conviction and faith. If one wants to be Krsna conscious by this process, one has to give up his engagement in sense gratification. One simply has to chant, "Hare Krsna! Hari Hari!" without any motive. 3 dekho-just see; ore bhai-O dear brothers!; tri-bhuvane-within the three worlds; nai-there is none; emona-such as these; doyala data-charitable givers of mercy; pasu-even the animals; pakhi-and the birds; jhure-weep; pasana vidare-stones melt; suni'-upon hearing; jara-whose; guna-gatha-glorification of Their qualities. 3. My dear brother, just try and examine this. Within the three worlds there is no one like Lord Caitanya or Lord Nityananda. Their merciful qualities are so great that upon hearing them even birds and beasts cry and stones melt. 4 samsare majiya-entrapped in the materialistic sense gratification process; rohili podiya-falling and remaining; se pade-for Their lotus feet; nahilo asa-you have no aspiration; apana karama-your own bad karma; bhunjaye-you are being punished (lit. 'enjoying'); samana-by Yamaraja, lord of death; kahoye locana-dasa-thus says Locana dasa. 4. But Locana dasa regrets that I am entrapped by sense gratification. Since I have no attraction for the lotus feet of Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda, then Yamaraja, the superintendent of death, is punishing me by not allowing me to be attracted by this movement.

PURPORT by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupda This is a song by Locana Dasa Thakura. Pahu means "Lord," and dui jana means "two." Locana Dasa Thakura declares that the two Lords, Nitai-Gauracandra--Lord Nitai and Lord Caitanya-are very merciful (parama koruna). Saba avatara-sara siromani. Avatara means "incarnation," and saba means "all." They are the essence of all incarnations. The specific significance of these incarnations is that prosecuting Their way of self-realization is simply joyful (kevala anandakanda), for They introduced chanting and dancing. There are many incarnations, like Lord Rama and even Krsna, who taught Bhagavad-gita, which requires knowledge and understanding. But Lord Caitanya and Nityananda in- troduced a process that is simply joyful-simply chant and dance. Therefore, Locana Dasa requests everyone, bhajo bhajo bhai, caitanyanitai: "My dear brother, I request that you just worship Lord Caitanya and Nityananda with firm conviction and faith." Don't think that this chanting and dancing will not lead to the desired goal. It will. It is the assurance of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu that one will get all perfection by this process. Therefore one must chant with firm faith and conviction (biswasa kori'). But what is the process? The process is visayo chariya, se rase majiya. If one wants to be Krsna conscious by this process, one has to give up his engagement in sense gratification. That is the only restriction. If one gives up sense gratification, it is sure that he will reach the desired goal.

Mukhe bolo hari hari: one simply has to chant, "Hare Krsna! Hari Hari!" without any motive of sense gratification. Dekho ore bhai, tri-bhuvane nai. Locana Dasa Thakura says, "My dear brother, you just try and examine this. Within the three worlds there is no one like Lord Caitanya or Lord Nityananda, because Their merciful qualities are so great that They make even birds and beasts cry, what to speak of human beings." Actually, when Lord Caitanya passed through the forest known as Jharikhanda, the tigers, elephants, snakes, deer, and all other animals joined Him in chanting Hare Krsa: It is so nice that anyone can join. Even the animals can join, what to speak of human beings. Of course, it is not possible for ordinary men to induce animals to chant, but if Caitanya Mahaprabhu could inspire animals to chant, at least we can encourage human beings to adopt this path of Hare Krsna mantra chanting. It is so nice that even the most stonehearted man will be melted. Pasana means "stone." It is so nice that even stone will melt. But Locana Dasa Thakura regrets that he is entrapped by sense gratification. He addresses himself, "My dear mind, you are entrapped in this sense gratification process, and you have no attraction for chanting Hare Krsna. Since you have no attraction for the lotus feet of Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda, what can I say? I can simply think of my misfortune. Yamaraja, the superintendent of death, is punishing me by not allowing me to be attracted by this movement."

Sri Dmodarshthaka
(found in the Padma Purna of Krsna Dvaipyana Vysa, spoken by Satyavrata Muni in a conversation with Nrada Muni and Saunaka Rsi) "In the month of Krtika one should worship Lord Dmodara and daily recite the prayer known as Dmodarshthaka, which has been spoken by the sage Satyavrata and which attracts Lord Dmodara." (S'r Hari-bhakti-vilsa 2.16.198)

TRANSLATION (1) To the Supreme Lord, whose form is the embodiment of eternal existence, knowledge, and bliss, whose shark-shaped earrings are swinging to and fro, who is beautifully shining in the divine realm of Gokula, who I (due to the offense of breaking the pot of yogurt that His mother was churning into butter and then stealing the butter that was kept hanging from a swing) is quickly running from the wooden grinding mortar in fear of mother Yasoda, but who has been caught from behind by her who ran after Him with greater speed--to that Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, I offer my humble obeisances. (2) (Seeing the whipping stick in His mother's hand,) He is crying and rubbing His eyes again and again with His two lotus hands. His eyes are filled with fear, and the necklace of pearls around His neck, which is marked with three lines like a conch shell, is shaking because of His quick breathing due to crying. To this Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, whose belly is bound not with ropes but with His mother's pure love, I offer my humble obeisances. (3) By such childhood pastimes as this He is drowning the inhabitants of Gokula in pools of ecstasy, and is revealing to those devotees who are absorbed in knowledge of His supreme majesty and opulence that He is only conquered by devotees whose pure love is imbues with intimacy and is free from all conceptions of awe and reverence. With great love I again offer my obeisances to Lord Damodara hundreds and hundreds of times.

(4) 0 Lord, although You are able to give all kinds of benedictions, I do not pray to You for the boon of impersonal liberation, nor the highest liberation of eternal life in Vaikuntha, nor any other boon (which may be obtained by executing the nine processes of bhakti). O Lord, I simply wish that this form of Yours as Bala Gopala in Vrndavana may ever be manifest in my heart, for what is the use to me of any other boon besides this? (5) O Lord, Your lotus face, which is encircled by locks of soft black hair tinged with red, is kissed again and again by mother Yasoda, and Your lips are reddish like the bimba fruit. May this beautiful vision of Your lotus face be ever manifest in my heart. Thousands and thousands of other benedictions are of no use to me. (6) O Supreme Godhead, I offer my obeisances unto You. O Damodara! O Ananta! O Vishnu! O master! O my Lord, be pleased upon me. By showering Your glance of mercy upon me, deliver this poor ignorant fool who is immersed in an ocean of worldly sorrows, and become visible to my eyes. (7) 0 Lord Damodara, just as the two sons of Kuvera--Manigriva and Nalakuvara--were delivered from the curse of Narada and made into great devotees by You in Your form as a baby tied with rope to a wooden grinding mortar, in the same way, please give to me Your own prema-bhakti. I only long for this and have no desire for any kind of liberation. (8) 0 Lord Damodara, I first of all offer my obeisances to the brilliantly effulgent rope which binds Your belly. I then offer my obeisances to Your belly, which is the abode of the entire universe. I humbly bow down to Your most beloved Srimati Radharani, and I offer all obeisances to You, the Supreme Lord, who displays unlimited pastimes.

TRANSLATION

(1) The night has come to an end and the light of dawn is entering O jiva soul, arise and give up your sleep. Chant the holy names of Lord Hari, who is the giver of liberation; the enemy of the Mura demon; the supreme enjoyer; the all-attractive one, and the horse-headed incarnation, Hayagriva. (2) Lord Hari (Krsna) incarnated as the half-man, half-lion, Nrsimha. He appeared as a dwarfbrahmana named Upendra and is the killer of the Madhu demon, He is the beloved son of the King of Vraja, Nanda Maharaja, and is blackish in complexion. He is the slayer of the Putana witch and the destoyer of the demon Kaitabha. All glories to Lord Hari,0 who appeared as Lord Rama, the son of King Dasaratha. (3) He is the darling of mother Yasoda; the giver of pleasure to the cows, land, and spiritual senses; and the protector of the cows. He is the Lord of the Vrndavana forest; the gopis' beloved; the lover of Radhika; and the most beautiful personality in all the worlds. (4) As Ramacandra He brought about the end of the demoniac King Ravana; as Krsna He stole the older gopis' butter; He stole the younger gopis'clothes while they were bathing in the Yamuna. He is a cowherd boy of Vraja and the protector of the cowherd boys. He steals the hearts of all and always holds a flute. (5) Lord Krsna is worshiped by the best of yogis and is the son of Nanda. He removes all the fears of the inhabitants of Vraja. He is the color of a fresh rain cloud, and His form is enchanting. When He wanders about, playing His flute, He looks very charming. (6) He is the son of Yasoda and the killer of King Kamsa, and He sports in the rasa dance among the groves of Vraja. Krsna engages in this rasa dance underneath the kadamba trees, and He resides in the forest of Vrndavana. (7) He increases the ecstasy of His devotees. He is the reservoir of all love and is the transcendental Cupid who uses His flowered arrows to increase the loving desires of the gopis. He is the pleasure of the gopis' hearts and the abode of all wonderful qualities. (8) Lord Krsna is the life of the River Yamuna. He is always absorbed in amorous pastimes, and He is the moon of the gopis' minds, which are like the cakora birds that subsist only upon moonlight. O mind, obey these words of mine and sing the glories of Sri Krsna in the form of these holy names, which are full of nectarean mellows.

Translation
1) He who brought the treasure of divine love and who was filled with compassion and mercy-where has such a personality as Srnivsa crya gone ? 2) Where are my Svarpa Dmodara and Rpa Gosvm? Where is Santana? Where is Raghuntha Dsa, the savior of the fallen? 3) Where are my Raghuntha Bhatta and Gopla Bhatta, and where is Krsnadsa Kavirja? Where did Lord Gaurnga, the great dancer, suddenly go? 4) I will smash my head against the rock and enter into the fire. Where will I find Lord Gaurnga, the reservoir of all wonderful qualities? 5) Being unable to obtain the association of Lord Gaurnga accompanied by all of these devotees in whose association He performed His pastimes, Narottama Dsa simply weeps.

(Chords harmonium)

TRANSLATION Gurudeva, give to this servant just one drop of mercy. I am lower than a blade of grass. Give me all help. Give me strength. Let me be as you are, without desires or aspirations.

I offer you all respects, for thus I may have the energy to know you correctly. Then, by chanting the holy name in great ecstasy, all my offenses will cease.

When will such mercy fall to this one who is weak and devoid of strenght and intelligence? Allow me to be with you.

If you examine me, you will find no qualities. Your mercy is all that I am made of. If you are not merciful unto me, I can only weep, and I will not be able to maintain my life.

Comment:

The six passions are those pertaining to words, the mind, anger, the tongue, the stomach and the genitals. The six faults are overeating, attachment to material things, inability to follow regulative principles, sense gratification, useless idle talk, and impure habits. The six positive qualities are enthusiasm in practicing devotional service, firm faith in devotional processes, a strong desire to attain prema-bhakti, a favorable service attitude, avoidance of non-devotees, and appreciation of the company of devotees. The six methods of association are to go to an assembly of devotees, to invite devotees into one's home, to discuss and hear devotional topics, to take the maha-prasada of devotees and to offer maha-prasada to devotees.

S'rla Rpa Gosvm states in his Upades'mrita (4), dadti pratigrihnti guhyam khyti pricchati bhunkte bhojayate caiva shad-vidham prti-lakshanam 'Offering gifts in charity, accepting charitable gifts, revealing one's mind in confidence, inquiring confidentially, accepting prasdam and offering prasdam are the six symptoms of love shared by one devotee and another.'

TRANSLATION 1) I prostrate myself before the Son of Mother Saci, Whose radiant lotus face and body shine with the splendour of molten gold. This transcendental body is the playground for the continuous expression of variegated moods and ecstatic symptoms, that carry His consciousness to the realm where He is no longer aware of that transcendental body. By only a particle of His mercy he has delivered the three worlds.

2) I salute the Son of Mother Saci, Whose heart is in a state of rapture, transformed by feelings of intense love. In His pastime of loud roaring, before the mischievous and malicious rascals, He removes all fear of the vast ocean of material existence, by the effect of His unlimited compassion.

3) He is wearing garments the colour of the eastern sky during the dawn, and His lovely cheeks shine with the same radiance. The nails of His hands and feet have the same pleasing effect of the moon, shining in the sky. His pleasure diversion consists in discussions and glorification of His own wonderful qualities and names. I offer my obeisances to the Son of Mother Saci.

4) His lotus eyes are always wet with tears. His ornaments are the new and ever fresh transformations of ecstatic love that decorate

His transcendental form. His gait is slow and majestic, yet His dancing is a wonderful pastime of enjoyment. I bow down before the Son of Mother Saci.

5) The movement of His lovely, yet restless, lotus feet captivates the mind, and His ankle bracelets sweeten that charming scene all the more. His face, which defeats the beauty of the moon, is very cooling and pleasant. I offer my salutations to the Son of Mother Saci.

6) He wears a cord around His waist and carries in His hands a waterpot and staff. His divine appearance is complemented by His shaved head. The sins of the wicked are annuled by the rod of chastisement that he carries. I salute the Son of Mother Saci.

7) His ornaments are the dust on His body and His radiant tilok, prepared with sandalwood. The beautiful sight of His trembling reddish lips brings delight to the mind and heart. I offer my obeisances to the Son of Mother Saci.

8) His lotus eyes defeat the colour of pink lotuses. His two lotus hands are very long, reaching down almost to His knees. He

appears to be a mere adolescent, dressed as He is, ready to dance. I prostrate myself before the Son of Mother Saci.

Comments:
Jaganntha is the name of Lord Krishna as the Lord of the Universe. Baladeva is the name of Lord Balarma: (strenght of joy) Krishna's first Plenary portion operating as His older brother. Also named Rma and Sankarsan. He is the protector and teacher of the devotees. is also considered Bhagavn. Subhadr was the sister of Lord Krishna. She married with Arjuna after the battle of Kuruksetra. Subhadr was the mother of Abhimanyu who was the father of Emperor Parikchit to whom the Bhgavatam was spoken. Comments on Sr Sr Jaganntha, Baladeva & Subhadr Comments: On Lord Jaganntha Shr Jaganntha is the "Immovable Lord of the Universe." He is a primal expansion of Lord Vishnu, second in the Vedic Trinity of Brahma (Creator) Vishnu (Sustainer) and Shiva (Transformer) and, for at least the past five thousand years, is greatly beloved throughout the Indian subcontinent. The fourth of India's four holiest temples is dedicated to Him (jagannath Puri). Now, thanks in part to the universal awakening of eclectic universalism in its many forms, His popularity is quickly expanding throughout the entire world. Verses in praise of Lord Baladeva "O Kesava! O Lord of the Universe! O Lord Hari, who have assumed the form of Lord Balarma, the wielder of the plow! All glories to You! On Your brilliant white body You wear garments the color of a fresh blue rain cloud. These garments are the color of the River Yamuna, who feels great fear due to the striking of Your plowshare." "All glories to Rama-ghata, where Lord Balarma performed His rasa dance. All glories to Lord Balarma, the son of Rohini. All glories, all glories to the residents of Vrndavana." "Powerful Lord Balarma is sixteen years old, full of the luster of youth and has a fair complexion the color of crystal. Balarma wears blue garments and a garland of forest flowers. Balarma's handsome hair is tied in a graceful topknot. Splendid earrings adorn Balarma's ears. Sr Baladeva's neck is splendidly decorated with garlands of flowers and strings of jewels. Splendid armlets and bracelets ornament Douji's graceful and very strong arms. Balarma's feet are decorated with splendid jeweled anklets. Sr Baladeva is Sr Krishna's dearest friend. Baladeva is a great reservoir of the nectar mellows of many kinds of transcendental pastimes." "Lord Balarma's beauty is enhanced by the earrings touching His cheeks. Balarma's face is decorated with tilaka made from musk, and Balarma's broad chest is ornamented with a

garland of gunja. Sr Baladeva's complexion is as white as an autumn cloud, and He wears blue garments. Balarma's voice is very grave and His arms are very long, touching His thighs." "The splendor of Lord Balarma's transcendental form eclipses many millions of glistening rising moons, and the slightest scent of His boundless strength is sufficient to destroy many armies of demons. Although He knows the supernatural power of His younger brother, Krishna, still, out of love for Him, Balarma never leaves Krishna alone in the forest even for a moment. I offer my prayers to Lord Balarma, the enemy of Dhenukasura." "The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, is the fountainhead of all incarnations. Lord Balarma is His second body. They are both one and the same identity. They differ only in form. He is the first bodily expansion of Krishna, and He assists in Lord Krishna's transcendental pastimes. That original Lord Krishna appeared in Navadvipa as Lord Caitanya, and Balarma appeared with Him as Lord Nitynanda. May Sr Nitynanda Rama be the object of my constant remembrance. Sankarsana, Sesa Naga and the Visnus who lie on the Karana Ocean, Garbha Ocean and ocean of milk are His plenary portions and the portions of His plenary portions. Lord Balarma is the original Sankarsana. He assumes five other forms to serve Lord Krishna. He Himself helps in the pastimes of Lord Krishna, and He does the work of creation in four other forms. He executes the orders of Lord Krishna in the work of creation, and in the form of Lord Sesa He serves Krishna in various ways. In all the forms He tastes the transcendental bliss of serving Krishna. That same Balarma is Lord Nitynanda, the companion of Lord Gaurasundara."

TRANSLATION 1) Lord Gaurasundara sings in a very sweet voice, Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rma, Hare Rma, Rma Rma, Hare Hare.

2) Whether you are a householder or a sannyasi, constantly chant "Hari! Hari!" Do not forget this chanting, whether you are in a happy condition or a distressful one. Just fill your lips with the hari-nama.

3) You are bound up in the network of Maya and are forced to toil fruitlessly. Now you have obtained full consciousness in the human form of life, so chant the names of Radha-Madhava.

4) Your life may end at any moment, and you have not served the Lord of the senses, Hrsikesa. Take this advice of Bhaktivinoda Thakura: "Just once, relish the nectar of the holy name!"

(Chords harmonium)

Elaborate translation:

(1) Just worship S'r Gaurahari, who is always affectionate toward His devotees. He is the same Supreme Godhead, Krishna, who sported in the cowherd pastures of Vraja and stole the hearts of Nanda and Yas'od.

(2) Mother Yas'od calls to Krishna, "My dear Dmodara, it is very late. Please come right now, sit down in the dining hall, and take Your lunch."

(3) On the direction of Nanda Mahrja, Krishna, the holder of Govardhana Hill, sits down, and then all the cowherd boys, along with Krishna's elder brother, S'r Baladeva, sit down in rows to take their lunch.

(4) They are then served a feast of s'ukt and various kinds of green leafy vegetables, then nice fried things, and a salad made of the green leaves of the jute plant. They are also served pumpkin, baskets of fruit, small square cakes made of lentils and cooked-down milk, then thick yogurt, squash cooked in milk, and vegetable preparations made from the flower of the banana tree.

(5) Then they receive fried squares of mung dahl patties, and urad dahl patties, capts, and rice with ghee. Next, sweets made with milk, sugar, and sesamum; rice flour cakes; thick cookeddown milk; cakes floating in milk; and sweet rice.

(6) There is also sweet rice that tastes just like nectar due to its being mixed with camphor. There are bananas, and cheese which is nectarean and delicious. They are also served twelve kinds of sour preparations made with tamarinds, limes, lemons, oranges, and pomegranates.

(7) There are purs made with white flour and sugar; purs filled with cream; laddus; and dahl patties boiled in sugared rice. Krishna eagerly eats all of the food.

(8) In great ecstasy and joy Krishna eats the rice, curried vegetables, sweets, and pastries cooked by S'rmat Rdhrn.

(9) Krishna's funny brhmana friend Madhumangala, who is very fond of laddus, gets them by hook

or by crook. Eating the laddus, he shouts, "Haribol! Haribol!" and makes a funny sound by slapping his sides under his armpits with his hands.

(10) Beholding Rdhrn and Her gop friends out of the corners of His eyes, Krishna eats at the house of mother Yas'od with great satisfaction.

(11) After lunch, Krishna drinks rose-scented water. Then all of the boys, standing in lines, wash their mouths.

(12) After all the cowherd boys wash their hands and mouths, in great bliss they take rest with Lord Balarma.

(13) The two cowherd boys Jambula and Rasla then bring Krishna pn made with betel nuts, fancy spices, and catechu. After eating that pn, S'r Krishnacandra then happily goes to sleep.

(14) While Krishna happily takes His rest on an excellent bedstead, His servant Vis'lksha cools Him with a fan of peacock feathers.

(15) At mother Yas'od's request the gop Dhanishthh brings remnants of food left on Krishna's plate to S'rmat Rdhrn, who eats them with great delight.

(16) Lalit-dev and the other gops then receive the remnants, and within their hearts they sing the glories of Rdhrn and Krishna with great joy.

(17) Thhkura Bhaktivinoda, whose one and only joy is the pastimes of Lord Hari, sings this Bhogarati song.

Translation by Swmi Prabhupda:


(1) I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who are always engaged in chanting the holy name of Krishna and dancing. They are just like the ocean of love of God, and they are popular both with the gentle and with the ruffians, because they are not envious of anyone. Whatever they do, they are all-pleasing to everyone, and they are fully blessed by Lord Caitanya. Thus they are engaged in missionary activities meant to deliver all the conditioned souls in the material universe.

(2)
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who are very expert in scrutinizingly studying all the revealed scriptures with the aim of establishing eternal religious principles for the benefit of all human beings. Thus they are honored all over the three worlds and they are worth taking shelter of because they are absorbed in the mood of the gopis and are engaged in the transcendental loving service of Radha and Krishna.

(3)
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who are very much enriched in understanding of Lord Caitanya and who are thus expert in narrating His transcendental qualities. They can purify all conditioned souls from the reactions of their sinful activities by pouring upon them transcendental songs about Govinda. As such, they are very expert in increasing the limits of the ocean of transcendental bliss, and they are the saviors of the living entities from the devouring mouth of liberation.

I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who kicked off all association of aristocracy as insignificant. In order to deliver the poor conditioned souls, they accepted loincloths, treating themselves as mendicants, but they are always merged in the ecstatic ocean of the gopis' love for Krishna and bathe always and repeatedly in the waves of that ocean.

I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who were always engaged in worshiping RadhaKrishna in the transcendental land of Vrindavana where there are beautiful trees full of fruits and flowers which have under their roots all valuable jewels. The Gosvamis are perfectly competent to bestow upon the living entities the greatest boon of the goal of life.

I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who were engaged in chanting the holy names of the Lord and bowing down in a scheduled measurement. In this way they utilized their valuable lives and in executing these devotional activities they conquered over eating and sleeping and were always meek and humble enchanted by remembering the transcendental qualities of the Lord.

(7)
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who were sometimes on the bank of the Rdhkunda lake or the shores of the Yamuna and sometimes at Varnsivata. There they appeared just like madmen in the full ecstasy of love for Krishna, exhibiting different transcendental symptoms in their bodies, and they were merged in the ecstasy of Krishna consciousness.

(8)
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the six Gosvamis, namely Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sri Sanatana Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who were chanting very loudly everywhere in Vrindavana, shouting, "Queen of Vrindavana, Radharani! O Lalita! O son of Nanda Maharaja! Where are you all now? Are you just on the hill of Govardhana, or are you under the trees on the bank of the Yamuna? Where are you?" These were their moods in executing Krishna consciousness.

PURPORT
by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktvedanta Swami Prabhupda

This is a song composed by Narottama Dasa Thakura. He prays to Lord Caitanya "My dear Lord, please be merciful to me, because who can be more merciful than Your Lordship within these three worlds?" Actually, this is a fact. Not only Narottama Dasa Thakura but Rupa Gosvami also prayed to Lord Caitanya in this way. At the time of the first meeting of Lord Caitanya and Rupa Gosvami at Prayaga (Allahabad), s'rla Rupa Gosvami said, "My dear Lord, You are the most munificent of all incarnations, because You are distributing love of Krishna, Krishna consciousness." When Krishna was personally present He simply asked us to surrender, but He did not distribute Himself so easily. He made conditions--"First of all you surrender." But this incarnation, Lord Caitanya, although Krishna Himself, makes no such condition. He simply distributes: "Take love of Krishna.'' Therefore Lord Caytanya is approved as the most munificent incarnation. Narottama Dasa Thakura says, "Please be merciful to me. You are so magnanimous, because You have seen the fallen souls of this age, and You are very much compassionate to them, but You should know also that I am the most fallen. No one is more greatly fallen than me." Patita-pavana-hetu tava avatara. "Your incarnation is just to reclaim the conditioned, fallen souls, but I assure You that You will not find a greater fallen soul than me. Therefore, my claim is first.'' Then he prays to Lord Nityananda. He says, ha ha prabhu, nityananda premananda-sukhi: "My dear Lord Nityananda, You are always joyful in spiritual bliss. Since You always appear very happy, I have come to You because I am most unhappy. If You kindly put Your glance over me, I may also become happy." Then he prays to Advaita Prabhu. Doya koro sita-pati adwaita gosai. Advaita Prabhu's wife's name was Sita. Therefore He is sometimes addressed as sita-pati. Thus Narottama Dasa Thakura prays, "My dear Advaita Prabhu, husband of Sita, You are so kind. Please be kind to me. If You are kind to me, naturally Lord Caitanya and Nityananda will also be kind to me." Actually, Advaita Prabhu invited Lord Caitanya to come down. When Advaita Prabhu saw that the fallen souls were all engaged simply in sense gratificatory processes, not understanding Krishna consciousness, He felt very much compassionate toward the fallen souls, and He also felt Himself incapable of claiming them all. He therefore prayed to Lord Krishna, "Please come Yourself. Without Your personal presence it is not possible to deliver these fallen souls." Thus by His invitation Lord Caitanya appeared. Naturally, Narottama Dasa Thakura prays to Advaita Prabhu, 'If You will be kind to me, naturally Lord Caitanya and Nityananda also will be kind to me." Then he prays to the Gosvamis. Ha ha swarup, sanatana, rupga, raghunatha. Swarup refers to Svarupa Damodara, the personal secretary of Lord Caitanya. He was always with Caitanya Mahaprabhu and immediately arranged for whatever Caitanya Mahaprabhu wanted. Two personal attendants, Svarupa Damodara and Govinda, were always constantly with Lord Caitanya. Therefore, Narottama Dasa Thakura also prays to Svarupa Damodara and then to the six Gosvamis, the next disciples of Lord Caitanya--s'r Rupa Gosvami, s'r Sanatana Gosvami, s'r Bhatta Raghunatha Gosvami, s'r Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, s'r Jiva Gosvami, and s'r Raghunatha Dasa Gosvami. These six Gosvamis were directly instructed by Lord Caitanya to spread this movement of Krishna consciousness. Narottama Dasa Thakura also prays for their mercy. After the six Gosvamis, the next acarya was s'rnivasa Acarya. Actually, Narottama Dasa Thakura was in the disciplic succession after s'rnivasa Acarya and was almost his contemporary, and Narottama Dasa's personal friend was Ramacandra Cakravarti. Therefore he

prays, "I always desire the company of Ramacandra." He desires a devotee's company. The whole process is that we should always pray for the mercy of the superior acaryas and keep company with pure devotees. Then it will be easier for us to advance in Krishna consciousness and receive the mercy of Lord Caitanya and Lord Krishna. This is the sum and substance of this song sung by Narottama Dasa Thakura.

Elaborate Translation: 1. In the land of Nadiya, on the island of Godruma, the magnanimous Lord Nityananda has opened up the Marketplace of the Holy Name, meant for the deliverance of all fallen souls.

2. O men of faith! O men of faith! By the order of Lord Gauranga, O brothers, I beg this one request: Chant "Krsna!", worship Krsna, and follow Krsna's instructions.

3.

Being careful to remain free of offenses, just take the holy name of Krsna. Krsna is your mother, Krsna is your father, and Krsna is the treasure of your life.

4. Giving up all improper behavior, carry on your worldly duties only in relation to Krsna. The showing of compassion to all fallen souls by loudly chanting the holy name of Krsna is the essence of all forms of religion.

PURPORT By His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupda


(The crya - teacher by example - that brought this mantra to the West)

The transcendental vibration established by the chanting of Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna
Krsna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare is the sublime method of reviving our Krsna consciousness. As living spiritual souls we are all originally Krsna conscious entities, but due to our association with matter from time immemorial, our consciousness is now polluted by the material atmosphere. The material atmosphere, in which we are now living, is called Maya, or illusion. Maya means "that which is not." And what is this illusion? The illusion is that we are all trying to be lords of material nature, while actually we are under the grip of her stringent laws. When a servant artificially tries to imitate the all-powerful master, this is called illusion. In this polluted concept of life, we are all trying to exploit the resources of material nature, but actually we are becoming more and more entangled in her complexities. Therefore, although we are engaged in a hard struggle to conquer nature, we are ever more dependent on her. This illusory struggle against material nature can be stopped at once by revival of our Krsna consciousness.

Krsna consciousness is not an artificial imposition on the mind; this consciousness is the
original energy of the living entity. When we hear the transcendental vibration, this consciousness is revived. And this process is recommended for this age by authorities. By practical experience also, one can perceive that by chanting this maha-mantra, or the Great Chanting for Deliverance, one can at once feel a transcendental ecstasy coming through from the spiritual stratum. And when one is factually on the plane of spiritual understanding--surpassing the stages of senses, mind, and intelligence--one is situated on the transcendental plane. This chanting of Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare is directly enacted from the spiritual platform, and thus this sound vibration surpasses all lower strata of consciousness-- namely sensual, mental, and intellectual. There is no need, therefore, to understand the language of the mantra, nor is there any need for mental speculation or any intellectual adjustment for chanting this maha-mantra. It springs automatically from the spiritual platform, and as such, anyone can take part in the chanting without any previous qualification, and dance in ecstasy.

We have seen this practically. Even a child can take part in the chanting, or even a dog can take
part in it. Of course, for one who is too entangled in material life, it takes a little more time to come to the standard point, but even such a materially engrossed man is raised to the spiritual platform very quickly. When the mantra is chanted by a pure devotee of the Lord in love, it has the greatest efficacy on the hearers, and as such, this chanting should be heard from the lips of a pure devotee of the Lord, so that immediate effects can be achieved. As far as possible, chanting from the lips of non devotees should be avoided. Milk touched by the lips of a serpent has poisonous effects. The word Hara is the form of addressing the energy of the Lord, and the words Krsna and Rama are forms of addressing the Lord Himself. Both Krsna and Rama mean "the supreme pleasure," and Hara is the supreme pleasure energy of the Lord, changed to Hare in the vocative. The supreme pleasure energy of the Lord helps us to reach the Lord. The material energy, called Maya, is also one of the multi energies of the Lord. And we, the living entities, are also the energy--marginal energy--of the Lord. The living entities are described as superior to material energy. When the superior energy is in contact with the inferior energy, an incompatible situation arises; but when the superior marginal energy is in contact with the superior energy, called Hara, the living entity is established in his happy, normal condition.

These three words, namely Hare, Krsna, and Rama, are the transcendental seeds of the mahamantra. The chanting is a spiritual call for the Lord and His internal energy, Hara, to give protection to the conditioned soul. This chanting is exactly like the genuine cry of a child for its mother. Mother Hara helps the devotee achieve the grace of the supreme father, Hari, or Krsna, and the Lord reveals Himself to the devotee who chants this mantra sincerely. No other means of spiritual realization, therefore, is as effective in this age as chanting the maha-mantra. Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

Translation
1) His complexion is the hue of fresh cream tinged with kunkum. He is the ever-fresh Cupid who shoots arrows of newly blossoming flowers. He bears newer and newer moods of emotional ecstasies. He is fond of performing novel dances. He makes ever-new jokes that cause much laughter. His brilliant luster is like freshly cast gold. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci.

2) He is endowed with ever-fresh love of Godhead. His radiant luster is like the color of fresh butter. His fresh attire is arranged in ever-new fashions. He relishes ever-new mellows of love for Krsna. He shines in nine-fold new ways while executing the nine-fold processes of devotion. He is permeated with a most auspicious loving nature. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci. 3) He is absorbed in devotion to Sri Hari. He maintains the chanting of the names of Hari. While chanting He counts the holy names on the fingers of His hands. He is addicted to the name of Hari. He always has tears of love welling in His eyes. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci. 4) He is always removing the suffering of material existence for mankind. He is the goal of life for persons who are dedicated to their supreme interest. He inspires men to become like honeybees (eager for the honey of Krsna-prema). He removes the burning fever of the material world. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci. 5) He motivates pure devotion unto Himself. He is most attractive to His beloved servitors. By His dramatic dancing He exhibits the characteristics of the King of paramours. He causes the minds of beautiful young village women to dance. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci. 6) He plays karatals as His throat emits sweet melodious sounds and the vibrant notes of the vina are softly played. He thus inspires the devotees to perform dramatic dancing that is infused with aspects of His own devotional service. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci. 7) He is accompanied by the sankirtana movement, which is the religious practice for the age of Kali. He is the son of Nanda Maharaja come again. He is the extraordinarily brilliant ornament of the earth. His preaching mood is suitably adapted to the cycle of birth and death. His consciousness is fixed in meditation on His own form of Krsna. He is always accompanied by His transcendental abode. I bow to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci. 8) His eyes, the soles of His feet, and His clothing are reddish like the color that heralds the rising sun. As He utters His own names, His voice falters. He awakens a sweet flavor to life throughout the universe. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci.
