Dekhalu Gaurangacandra Vibhora

Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song “Dekhalu Gaurangacandra Vibhora”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj describes the beauty and compassion of Sri Krsna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu whose form is splendid, enchanting, handsome, sweet and graceful and who frees everyone from the bonds of repeated birth and death.
 
(Refrain)
dekhalu gaurangacandra bibhora
kali-yuga kalusa-timira-ghora-nasaka
nabadwipa canda ujora
 
(1)
gaura barana tanu sohana mohana
sundara madhura su-thama
anupama aruna kirana jini ambara
sundara caru bayana
 
(2)
bhabahi bhoraghora duhum locana
mocana bhaba-nada-bandha
naba naba prema-bharabara tanu sundara
uyala bhakata gana sanga
 
(3)
lahu lahu hasa bhasa mrdu bolata
sohata gati ati manda
dina jane nija bija  saba de-i tarala
bancita dasa gobinda
 
(Refrain) I saw Lord Gaurangacandra. Now I am overcome. Lord Gaura is a splendid moon rising in Navadvipa, a moon that destroys the horrible darkness of Kali-yuga's sins.
 
(1) His complexion is fair. His form is splendid, enchanting, handsome, sweet, and graceful. His garments defeat the peerless rising sun. His face is handsome and graceful.
 
(2) His eyes are restless with ecstatic spiritual love. He frees everyone from the bonds of repeated birth and death. His graceful form is overcome with newer and newer ecstatic spiritual love. He stays amongst the devotees.
 
(3) He gently smiles. He speaks sweet words. His slow movements are graceful. Giving them the seed of ecstatic spiritual love, He delivers the poor fallen people. Only Govinda dasa He did not deliver. Only Govinda dasa was cheated.
