Gay Gaur Madhur Sware

Chaitanya_mahaprabhu , sri caitanya

Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song Gay Gaur Madhur Sware”. The official name for this song is Sri Nama. This song is taken from the book Gitavali (Section: Sri Nagara Kirtana Sri Nama Song 2). Bhaktivinoda Thakura says that life is unpredictable. Why not make efforts to chant the Hare Krishna Mantra given by Maha prabhu to deliver all of us from the material afflictions. You can drink this nectar any time, in happiness or in distress. Just relish the nectar of the holy names
 
(1)
gay gora madhur sware
hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare
hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
 
(2)
grihe thako, vane thako, sada ‘hari’ bole’ dako,
sukhe duhkhe bhulo na’ko, vadane hari-nam koro re
 
(3)
maya-jale baddha ho ’ye, acho miche kaja lo ’ye,
ekhona cetana pe’ye, ‘radha-madhav’ nam bolo re
 
(4)
jivana hoilo sesha, na bhajile hrishikesa
bhaktivinodopadesa, ekbar nam-rase mato re

 
(1) Lord Gaurasundara sings in a very sweet voice, Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
(2) Whether you are a householder or a sannyasi, constantly chant "Hari! Hari!" Do not forget this chanting, whether you are in a happy condition or a distressful one. Just fill your lips with the hari-nama.
(3) You are bound up in the network of maya and are forced to toil fruitlessly. Now you have obtained full consciousness in the human form of life, so chant the names of Radha-Madhava.
(4) Your life may end at any moment, and you have not served the Lord of the senses, Hrishikesa. Take this advice of Bhaktivinoda Thakura: "Just once, relish the nectar of the holy name!"
