lyrics

Samsara dava nala liddha loka,
tranaya karunya ghana ghana tvam,
praptasya kalyana gunarnavasya,
vande guroh sri caranaravinda

(1)
In worldly forest fires we are burning,
To save us you pour down thick rains of mercy,
From an ocean of auspicious qualities,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(2)
(In) Mahaprabhu’s kirtan dancing and singing,
Maddened within by the moods you are tasting,
Hairs standing on end, shivering and crying,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(3)
The Lord’s divine forms you worship always,
You adorn Them and cleanse the temple brightly,
In this same service you engage devotees,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(4)
By four types of Sri Bhagavat prasadam,
The Lord's devotees feel great satisfaction,
When they are fulfilled, You take satisfaction,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(5)
Sri Radhika Madhava’s endless beauty,
Their sweet pastimes, forms, names and qualities,
You have a greed to relish these each moment,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(6)
In secret groves the Couple are delighting,
By perfect plans you have made with the sakhis
You are so cherished by your great expertise,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(7)
All scriptures state that you’re directly Hari
And saintly persons accept this indeed,
But You are truly the Lord’s own dearest,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(8)
By your divine grace
We obtain the Lord’s grace,
Without this grace
We can never reach our goal
Recalling your glories
Morning, noon, and evening,
Praise to our masters’ divine lotus feet!
(9)
By loudly singing, Sri Guru Astakam,
Each morning with care just before the dawn,
We’ll surely attain, our eternal service,
Directly to the Lord of Vrindavan!

Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Gurudeva! Jaya Gurudeva!
