Author: Narottama Das Thakura
Book Name: Prarthana (Section: Vaisnava Vijnapati Song 2)

(1)
ei-bāra karuṇā kara vaiṣṇava gosāñi
patita-pāvana tomā bine keha nāi
(2)
jāhāra nikaṭe gele pāpa dūre jāya
emana dayāla prabhu kebā kothā pāya
(3)
gaṅgara paraśa haile paścāte pāvana
darśane pavitra kara-ei tomāra guṇa
(4)
hari-sthāne aparādhe tāre harinām
tomā sthāne aparādhe nāhi paritrāna
(5)
tomāra hṛdaye sadā govinda-viśrām
govinda kahena—mora vaiṣṇava parāṇ
(6)
prati-janme kari āśā caraṇera dhūli
narottame kara dayā āpanāra bali

TRANSLATION

1) O Vaisnava Gosvami, please be merciful to me now. There is no one except you who can purify the fallen souls.

2) Where does anyone find such a merciful personality by whose mere audience all sins go far away?

3) After bathing in the waters of the sacred Ganges many times, one becomes purified, but just by the sight of you, the fallen souls are purified. This is your great power.

4) The holy name delivers one who has committed an offense to Lord Hari, but if one commits an offense to you, there is no means of deliverance.

5) Your heart is always the resting place of Lord Govinda, and Lord Govinda says, “The Vaisavas are in My heart.”

6) I desire the dust of your holy feet in every birth I may take. Please consider Narottama yours, and be kind upon him.

Song Name: Gauranga Karuna Koro
Author: Narottama Das Thakura

(1)
gaurāṅga karuṇā koro, dīna hīna jane
mo-samo patita prabhu, nāhi tri-bhuvane
(2)
dante tṛṇa dhori’ gaura, ḍāki he tomār
kṛpā kori’ eso āmār, hṛdoya mandire
(3)
jadi doyā nā koribe, patita dekhiyā
patita pāvana nāma, kisera lāgiyā
(4)
hari-sthāne aparādhe tāre harinām
tomā sthāne aparādhe nāhi paritrāna
(5)
śrī kṛṣṇa caitanya prabhu, dāser anudās
prārthanā koraye sadā, narottam dās

TRANSLATION

1) O my dear Lord Gauranga! Please show Your mercy to this lowly and destitute soul. O Lord! There is no one more fallen than myself in all the three worlds.

2) Holding grass between my teeth, O Lord Gaura, I am calling out to You now! Please be compassionate upon me and come to reside within the temple of my heart.

3) If You do not give Your mercy, seeing how fallen I am, then why are You known as Patita Pavana — the merciful Savior of the fallen?

4) I am plunged amidst the violent hurricane-stricken waves in the ocean of this material world, from which there is no escape. Kindly give me the gift of Your divine lotus feet, which are compared to a boat in which Your servant may cross over the ocean of birth and death.

5) Narottama Dasa, the servant of the servant of Lord Sri Krsna Caitanya Prabhu, ceaselessly makes this prayer.
