Sri Harivasar Giti
By Srila Vrndavan Das Thakur
sri hari-vasare hari-kirtana-vidhana
On the holy day of Sri Hari (Ekadasi), Sriman Mahaprabhu, the life and soul of the universe, began dancing.
punyavanta srivasa-angane subharambha
With the auspicious beginning of the kirtan in the courtyard of the fortunate Srivas, the sound of the chanting, ‘Gopal!’ ‘Govinda!’ arose.
mrdanga mandira baje sankha karatala
The sounds of the mrdangas, cymbals, conchshells, and clapping hands all combined together in the sankirtan.
brahmande uthila dhvani puriya akasa
The sound of the sankirtan arose and filled the sky, destroying inauspiciousness in all directions.
chatur-dike sri hari-mangala sankirtana
Mahaprabhu Visvambhar, the son of Jagannath Misra, danced, surrounded by the auspicious Hari-nam-sankirtan on all sides.
sabara angete sobhe sri chandana-mala
Everyone was decorated with sandalwood paste and flower garlands, and danced, overwhelmed with joy.
nijanande nache mahaprabhu visvambhara
Mahaprabhu Visvambhar danced in the ecstasy of Himself. Hearing the rhythm of His feet was heart capturing.
bhavavese mala nahi rahaye galaya
While He was rapt in ecstasy, His flower garland could not remain around His neck. It tore and fell as the devotees sang.
yanra namanande siva vasana na jane
In the ecstasy of whose Name Siva forgets His clothing, in the ecstasy of whom Siva always dances, that Supreme Lord now dances personally.
yanra name valmiki ha-ila tapodhana
By whose Name Valmiki became a powerful sage, by whose Name Ajamil attained liberation, by hearing whose Name the bondage of material existence is destroyed, that very Lord descends in the Age of Kali and dances.
yanra nama la-i suka narada bedaya
He whose Name Sukadev and Narad take as they wander about, whose glories the thousand-mouthed Anantadev sings, whose Name is the supreme form of atonement, that Lord now dances and glances upon the fortunate souls.
sri krsna-chaitanya nityananda-chanda jana
Embracing Sri Krsna Chaitanya and Nityanandachand as his life and soul, Vrndavan Das sings the glories of Their lotus feet.
