 (1)
bhāi-re!
śarīra abidyā-jāl, joḍendriya tāhe kāl,
jīve phele viṣaya-sāgore
tā’ra madhye jihwā ati, lobhamoy sudurmati,
tā’ke jetā kaṭhina saṁsāre
(2)
kṛṣṇa baro doyāmoy, koribāre jihwā jay,
swa-prasād-anna dilo bhāi
sei annāmṛta pāo, rādhā-kṛṣṇa-guṇa gāo,
preme ḍāko caitanya-nitāi

TRANSLATION

1) O brothers! This material body is a network of ignorance, and the senses are one’s deadly enemies, for they throw the soul into the ocean of material sense enjoyment. Among the senses, the tongue is the most voracious and verily wicked; it is very difficult to conquer the tongue in this world.

2) O brothers! Lord Krsna is very merciful-just to control the tongue He has given us the remnants of His own food! Now please eat these nectarean grains while singing the glories of Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha and Krsna, and in love call out “Caitanya! Nitai!”

 (1)
bhāi-re!
eka-dina śāntipure, prabhu adwaitera ghare,
dui prabhu bhojane bosilo
śāk kori’ āswādana, prabhu bole bhakta-gaṇa,
ei śāk kṛṣṇa āswādilo
(2)
heno śāk-āswādane, kṛṣṇa-prema aise mane,
sei preme koro āswādana
jaḍa-buddhi parihari’, prasād bhojana kori’,
`hari hari’ bolo sarva jan

TRANSLATION

1) O brothers! One day at Sri Advaita’s house in santipura, the two Lords-Caitanya and Nityananda-were seated for lunch. Lord Caitanya tasted the green leafy vegetable preparation and addressed the assembly of His devotees, “This sak is so delicious! Lord Krsna has definitely tasted it.

2) “At the taste of sak like this, love of Krsna arises in the heart. In such love you should taste these remnants. Giving up all materialistic conceptions and taking the Lord’s prasad, all of you just chant `Hari! Hari!'”
