"A Broker's Song"
By Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur
bara sukhera khabara gai
I am singing about the greatest news! A marketplace of the Holy Name has opened at Surabhi Kunja, and its proprietor is Nitai!
bara mojara katha taya
This is such great news! You can buy the pure Name at this market place at the cost of faith.
yata bhakta-vrnda basi'
Whoever comes, He looks at the qualification of the devotee and then sells the Name at a bargain price.
yadi nama kinbe, bhai
Brother, if you want to buy this Name, come with me—I am going to this great soul now.
tumi kinbe krsna-nama
You will buy the Holy Name and I will get a discount and my desire will be fulfilled.
bara dayal nityananda
Nityananda is very merciful—at the cost of mere faith He bestows greatest joy.
ek-bara dekhle chakse jala
If Nitai sees just once someone says, 'Gaura,' with tears in their eyes, He gives them all His wealth.
dena suddha krsna-siksa
He gives pure teachings of Lord Krishna without expecting a high caste, wealth, knowledge or physical strength from anyone.
amani chhade maya-jala
The net of illusion will fall off on its own, then wherever you are—whether you live in a house or in a forest—there will be no more material garbage left.
ara naika kalira bhaya
There is no fear of Kali any more—merciful Nitai gives the Name even to the lowest among men.
bhaktivinoda daki' kaya
Bhaktivinod calls out, "There is no other shelter except for the feet of Nitai!"
