Ami Sei Dusta Mati

Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Hari Krsna, Ami Sei Dusta Mati

Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song“Ami Sei Dusta Mati”.The official name of this song is Yamuna Bhavavali Song 16.This song is taken from the book Gitamala. Bhaktivinoda Thakura says that we are the most fallen souls of this material world. We are the servants of Lord Krishna and we should take shelter at His lotus feet. We should renounce from this material desires to serve the Lord properly. Once we serve Govinda with faith then our soul will get fully satisfied.
(hari he)
ami sei dusta-mati na dekhiya anya-gati
taba pade lo'yechi sarana
janilama ami natha tumi prabhu jagannatha
ami taba nitya parijana
sei dina kabe ha'be  aikantika-bhabe jabe
nitya-dasa-bhaba lo'ye ami
manorathantara jata nihsesa koriya swatah
sebibo amara nitya-swami
nirantara seba-mati  bahibe cittete sati
prasanta hoibe atma mora
e bhaktibinoda bole  krsna-seba-kutuhole
ciro-dina thaki jena bhora
(1) Oh my dear Lord Hari! I am most fallen, and seeing no other alternative, I have taken full shelter at Your lotus feet. Oh Lord! Now I have finally understood that You are known as Jagannatha, Lord of the Universe, whereas I am but Your eternal servant.
(2) When will that day come when I will take on the mood and behavior of Your unalloyed eternal servant? Then, all other distracting desires of my mind will automatically become totally exhausted, and I will be able to whole-heartedly render service to my eternal Master.
(3) My soul will become fully satisfied when that day will be mine. My heart will be chaste only to You, and it will exhibit such a service attitude which flows from the core of the heart with uninterrupted devotion.Bhaktivinoda says that he will thus live eternally absorbed in such a delightful flow of ecstatic loving service to Krsna.
