about

This song is a translation of Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur's bengali song "Ara keno maya jale". Here the soul is compared to a fish, which is caught by the nets of illusion. The nature of the fish is to be free in the ocean, i.e. free swimming in the love of Lord Krishna!

lyrics

ar keno maya jale poditecho jiva min
nahi jana badha hoye robe tumi chiro din

(1)
Soul why like a fish are you falling,
For the nets of maya again,
Soul why like a fish are you falling,
For the nets of maya again,

Don’t you know that when you get caught,
For a long time you will remain!
Don’t you know that when you get caught,
For a long time you will remain!

(2)
Your longing for petty pleasures,
Binds you up in Maya’s strong net,
our longing for petty pleasures,
Binds you up in Maya’s strong net,

There you stay with your changed nature,
A captive in strict punishment!
There you stay with your changed nature,
A captive in strict punishment!

Soul why like a fish are you falling,
For the nets of maya again,

(3)
Now by the strength of devotion,
In the ocean of Krishna's love.
Now by the strength of devotion,
In the ocean of Krishna's love.

Play freely within those waters,
Staying under Lord Shri Krishna!
Play freely within those waters,
Staying under Lord Shri Krishna!

Soul why like a fish are you falling,
For the nets of maya again,
Soul why like a fish are you falling,
For the nets of maya again,

Don’t you know that when you get caught,
For a long time you will remain!
Don’t you know that when you get caught,
For a long time you will remain!
