Sri Vaishnava Mahima Giti
By Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur
|(ohe) vaisnava thakura||dayara sagara
|e dase karuna kari|
|diya pada-chaya||sodha he amaya|
|tomara charana dhari |
O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me
the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet.
|chhaya vega dami'||chhaya dosa sodhi'
|chhaya guna deha' dase|
|chhaya sat-sanga||deha' he amare|
|basechhi sangera ase |
Subjugate the six urges, rectify the six defects, and bestow the six good
qualities upon this servant. Grant me the six kinds of good association. I
have sat at your feet, desiring that association.*
|ekaki amara||nahi paya bala
|tumi krpa kari||sraddha-bindu diya|
|deha' krsna-nama-dhane |
Alone I do not have the ability to properly chant the Lord's Name. Mercifully give me a drop of faith and bestow upon me the wealth of Krishna's Name.
|krsna se tomara||krsna dite para
|tomara sakati achhe|
|ami ta' kangala||'krsna krsna' bali|
|dhaitava pachhe pachhe |
Krishna is yours. You can give Krishna. You have that power. I am very poor. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you.
|(ami) (dhai tava pachhe pachhe)
|(krsna dhana pabar ase dhai tava pachhe pachhe)
|(tumi dile krsna dite para)
|(krsna tomar hrdayer dhan tumi dileo dite para)
|(krsna debar sakti-dhara tumi dileo dite para)
I run after you.
I run after you in hope of attaining the wealth of Krishna.
If you desire to give Krishna, you can give Him.
Krishna is the wealth of your heart, you have the power to give Krishna.
If only you desire to give Krishna, you can give Him.
