Śrī Guru-vandanā by Narottama Dāsa Ṭhākura

ŚRĪ GURU-CARAṆA-PADMA 

Translation by Śrī Babaji

(1) 

śrī-guru-caraṇa-padma, kevala-bhakati-sadma, bando mui sāvadhāna mate jāhāra prasāde bhāi, e bhava toriyā 

jāi, kṛṣṇa-prāpti hoy jāhā ha‘te 

The lotus feet of Śrī Guru are the abode of pure bhakti. I bow down to them with great reverence. O brothers and sisters! It is by his grace that we can cross over this material world and attain Kṛṣṇa. 

(2) 

guru-mukha-padma-vākya, cittete koriyā aikya, ār nā koriho mane āśā śrī-guru-caraṇe rati, ei se uttama-gati, je prasāde pūre sarva āśā 

Take the teachings emanating from the lotus mouth of Śrī Guru to your heart, and have no other desires in your mind. Attachment to the feet of Śrī Guru leads to the supreme destination. It is by his grace that all of one’s desires are fulfilled. 

(3) 

cakhu-dān dilo jei, janme janme prabhu sei, divya jñān hṛde prokāśito prema-bhakti jāhā hoite, avidyā vināśa jāte, vede gāy jāhāra carito

Śrī Guru has given me proper vision, and is my master birth after birth. Divine wisdom manifests in the heart and by his grace, one attains pure love and one’s ignorance is dispelled. His character is praised in the Vedas. 

(4) 

śrī-guru karuṇā-sindhu, adhama janāra bandhu, lokanāth lokera jīvana hā hā prabhu koro doyā, deho more pada-chāyā, ebe jaśa ghuṣuk tribhuvana 

Śrī Guru is an ocean of mercy and friend of the fallen! Śrī Lokanāth Gosvāmī, my guru, is the life of all people. O Master, be gracious on me and give me the shelter of your lotus feet. May your glories spread throughout the three worlds.
