nana dravya ayojana, kari kare nimantrana,
kripa kari kara agamana |

tomara vaishnava gana, mora ai nivedana,
dristi kari kara samapana ||
 
(3)      
kari ato nivedana, anila mohanta gana,
kirtanera kare adhivasa |
 
(4)       
aneka bhagyara fale, vaishnava, asiya mile
kali habe mahotsava vilasa ||
 
(5)       
Sri krishnera lilagana, karibena asvadana,
puribe sabara abhilasha |

Sri krishna Caitanya Candra, sakala bhakata vrinda,
guna gaya Vriindavan dasa ||
 
1. Upon collecting and arranging all kinds of articles and inviting everyone to mercifully come and attend the program.

2. You are all vaishnava devotees of the Lord and therefore I humbly pray to you to please complete this ceremony by your merciful glance.

3. Thus humbly praying and receiving all the great (mahanta) stalwart devotees of the Lord to join the adhivasa inaugural ceremony of the congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord.

4. Only by immense good fortune one gets the association of such an assembly of vaishnava and therefore tomorrow we will have a great festival.

5. Where you all will relish the sweet pastimes of Sri Krishna and all your desires will be fulfilled.

6. In this way Vriindavana dasa humbly glorifies the moonlike Lord Srikrishna Caitanya Mahaprabhu and all of His devotees.

Sisya Hoiya Kore Yei Gitar Sravana
 
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has written this song “Sisya Hoiya Kore Yei Gitar Sravana”. The official name of this song is Vrndavane Bhajana section 15. In this song, Srila Prabhupada says what actually Bhagavad Gita means to the Devotees.
 
(1)
siṣya hoiya kore yei gitara sravaṇa
ghucibe ajnana ara saḿsara bandhana
 
(2)
saḿsara ghucilo kintu bahya nyasi noy
gitar tatparye gṛhi e rupa bujhay
 
(3)
“kariṣye vacanaḿ tava” sei mantra siddhi
ataeva yuddhe tanra ho’lo yaso-vṛddhi
 
(4)
vaiṣṇava niriha saba mala japa kore
e kon vaiṣṇava arjuna saḿsara bhitore
 
1) Becoming a disciple, Arjuna listened to the Bhagavad-gita. All his ignorance dissipated as well as his material bondage.
 
2) His material bondage was cut, but he was not dressed as a sannyasi. The householders understand the Gita's meaning this way.
 
3) The perfection of mantras was “I will do what you say.” Therefore, the war that he fought brought him an increase in fame.
 
4) Vaisnavas have no desires. They all chant on beads. What kind of Vaisnava is Arjuna in the middle of the material world?
 

Karma Phale Ase Saba Nana Vesa Dhari

Karma Phale Ase Saba Nana Vesa Dhari
 
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has written this song “Karma Phale Ase Saba Nana Vesa Dhari”. The official name of this song is Vrndavane Bhajana Section 5. In this song, Srila Prabhupada says How we living being, addressing ourself with the body and because of this illusion we think we are happy.
 
(1)
karma phale ase saba nana vesa dhari
vesete majiya thake bhuliya sri hari
 
(2)
ataeva maya tare deya bahu duḥkha
duḥkhe habuḍubu tabu tahe mane sukha
 
(3)
cira rogi duḥkha bhogi sayyate suiya
bhalo achi aja kohe hasiya hasiya
 
(4)
hasi pay tar “bhalo thakara” kathay
maya baddha jivera bhalo ei bhave hoy
 
1) By the fruits of action, all souls come down and adopt a body. Immersed in that dress of the body, they forget Sri Hari.
 
2) Therefore, illusion give them great misery and suffering. As they are immersed and resubmerged in this misery, they think it is happiness.
 
3) A chronic patient suffering great pain lies upon his bed laughs and smiles, “I am doing well, today!”
 
4) I get amused by their “I’m doing well” talk. For the illusion-bound spirit soul, this is what “fine” means to them.
