Dedication to Sri Nityananda PrabhuSrila Narottama Dasa Thakura
nitai-pada-kamala, koti-candra-susitala,je chayaya jagat judayahena nitai vine bhai, radha-krsna paite nai,drdha kari’ dhara nitaiyera paya (1)
Nitai’s lotus feet are more cooling than the shining of millions of moons. Their shade gives solace to the universe. O brother, without a personality such as Nitai, it is not possible to attain Radha and Krsna. So hold on very tightly (drdha) to His lotus feet.
se sambandha nahi ja’ra, vrtha janma gela ta’ra,sei pasu bada duracaranitai na balila mukhe, majila samsara sukhe,vidyakule ki karibe ta’ra (2)
If someone has not yet established his relationship with Nityananda Prabhu, his life has been wasted. He is no better than an animal. Not taking the name of Nitai on one’s lips, one becomes absorbed in the so-called happiness of this world. Then what is the value of one’s education and birth in a high family or great nation?
ahankare matta haiya, nitai-pada pasariya,asatyere satya kari’ maninitaiyera karuna habe, vraje radha-krsna pabe,dhara nitaiyera carana du’khani (3)
Forgetting Nitai’s lotus feet, one becomes maddened by the false concept of bodily life and considers the illusory energy as real. Receiving the mercy of Nitai, he can attain Sri Radha and Krsna in Vraja. Firmly catch hold of the lotus feet of Nitai.
nitaiyera carana satya, tahara sevaka nitya,nitai-pada sada kara asanarottama bada duhkhi, nitai more kara sukhi,rakha ranga-caranera pasa (4)
The feet of Nitai are real and service to Him is eternal. Always hope and pray for the lotus feet of Nitai. “Narottama is very unhappy! O Nitai, please make me happy. Keep me tucked close to Your feet which are like reddish lotuses
