Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song: ” Aham Mama Saba Arthe”. The official name of this song is ” Atma-Nivedana Song 4″. This song is taken from the book Sarangati. Bhaktivinod Saraswati Thakura says that we should forget our ego. Everything belongs to Shree Krishna. We should focus our mind and try to make Govinda happy.
aham mama-sabda-arthe jaha kichu hoy
arpilun tomara pade, ohe doya-moy!
amara ami to’ natha! na rohinu ar
ekhona hoinu ami kevala tomar
ami’ sabde dehi jiva ahamta chadilo
twadiyabhimana aji hrdoye pasilo
amar sarvasva—deho, geho anucar
bhai, bandhu, dara, suta, dravya, dwara, ghar
se saba hoilo tava, ami hoinu das
tomara grhete ebe ami kori bas
tumi grha-swami, ami sevaka tomar
tomara sukhete cesta ekhona amar
sthula-linga-dehe mora sukrta duskrta
ara mora nahe, prabhu! ami to’ niskrta
tomara icchaya mora iccha misailo
bhakativinoda aja apane bhulilo
(1)-(2) Whatever I am, whatever I possess, I offer at Your lotus feet, O merciful Lord. I no longer belong to myself. Now I am exclusively Yours.
(3) The soul inhabiting this mortal body has given up the false ego attached to the word “I”, and now the eternal, spiritual sense of being Yours has entered his heart.
(4)-(5) All my possessions – body, brothers, friends, and followers, wife, sons, personal belongings, house and home- all of these I give You, for I have become Your servant. Now I dwell inYour house.
(6) You are the Lord of my house, and I Your most obedient servant. Your happiness is my only endeavor now.
(7) Whatever piety or sins were done by me, by mind or deed, are no longer mine, for I am redeemed
(8) My desire has become one with Yours. From this day Bhaktivinoda has no other identity.
