GAURANGA MORA DHARMA
Composed by Srila Narahari Sarkara Thakura
(Narahari Sarkara’s Exclusive devotion unto Lord Gauranga’s lotus feet)
mana re! kaha na Gauranga katha
O mind, please constantly speak about the glories of Lord Gauranga !!! This is my advice to you.
Gaurara nama amiyara dhama,
piriti murati data
Gauranga’s Holy Name is the supreme abode of all nectar and the personified bestower of unalloyed love and attachment to the supreme Lord.
sayane Gaura svapane Gaura,
Gaura nayanera tara
jivane gaura marane Gaura,
gaura galara hara
Remember Lord Gauranga while you are asleep, contemplate upon Him in Your dreams. He is the exclusive star and the vision of my eyes.
Gauranga is my life and I will hold onto Gauranga at the time of my death. gauranga is the priceless necklace that adorns my neck.
hiyara majhare Gauranga rakhiye, virale vasiya rabo
manera sadhete se rupa-candere, nayane nayane thobo
Keeping Gauranga within my heart ,I will relish His association sitting in a solitary place. Thus I will fix my mind on His supremely enchanting form and I will gaze into Lord Gauranga’s exquisitely beautiful eyes.
Gaura vihane na vanchi parane,
Gaura korechi sara
Gaura boliya jauka jivane,
kichu na cahibo ara
Without Gauranga’s association I do not desire to maintain this body or live in this world. Lord Gauranga is the very essence of my existence. I wish to give up my life singing Lord Gauranga’s name and glories– I ask for nothing else in this world.
Gaura gamana, Gaura gathana,
Gaura mukhera hamsi
Gaura-piriti, Gaura murati,
hiyaya rahalo pasi
May Lord Gauranga’s graceful movements, Lord Gauranga’s splendid features and characteristics, Lord Gauranga’s sweet smiling face, love and attachment for Lord Gauranga’s glories and pastimes, and Lord Gauranga’s nectarean delicate form – all of Them spontaneously enter and manifest in my heart at every moment
Gauranga dharama, Gauranga karama,
Gauranga vedera sara
Gaura charane, parana samarpinu,
Gaura karibena para
Worshipping Gauranga is my only Dharma or religion, Gauranga is the only object or goal of all my endeavours and Lord Gauranga’s bhajana (loving worship) is the very essence of all the Vedic scriptures. I completely surrender my life, mind, body, heart and soul at Lord Gauranga’s lotus feet. I am fully certain that Lord Gauranga shall deliver me from this great ocean of material existence.
Gaura sabda Gaura sampada,
jahara hiyaya jage
narahari dasa tara carane,
Gauranga’s holy Name, form, glories and pastimes are the exclusive treasures for that fortunate person in whose heart Lord Gauranga manifests Himself by His causeless mercy. Narahari dasa prays and begs to be able to take shelter at the lotus feet of such an exalted devotee.
