Hari Hari Ki Mora Karama Gati Manda

Narottam Das Thakur has written this song “Hari Hari Ki Mora Karama Gati Manda”. The official name of this song is Dainya Bodhika Song 1. This song is taken from the book Prarthana. In this song, the humility of Narottam Das Thakur is explicitly portrayed. He blames himself for not worshiping the divine lotus feet of Sri Krsna and Srimati Radharani.
 
(1)
hari hari ki mora karama gati manda
vraje radha-krsna pada, na bhajinu tila adha,
na bujhinu ragera sambandha
 
(2)
svarupa sanatana rupa, raghunatha bhatta yuga
bhugarbha sri jiva lokanatha
iha sabar pada padma, na sevinu tila adha,
ara kise puribek sadha
 
(3)
krsna dasa kaviraja, rasika bhakata majha,
yehon koilo caitanya carita
gaura govinda lila, sunite goloye sila,
tahate na hoilo mora cita
 
(4)
se sab bhakata sanga, ye korilo tara sanga,
tara sange kene nohilo vasa?
ki mora duhkera katha, janama gowainu vrtha
dhik dhik narottama dasa
 
 
(1) O Lord Hari, Lord Hari, how wicked I am!  I did not worship the lotus feet of Radha and Krsna in Vrajabhumi even for half a moment, and I am completely unable to understand the mellows of transcendental love. 
 
(2) Even for half a moment I did not worship the lotus feet of Srila Svarupa Damodara Gosvami, Srila Sanatana Gosvami, Srila Rupa Gosvami, Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, SrilaRaghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, Srila Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, Srila Bhugarbha Gosvami, Srila Jiva Gosvami and Srila Lokanatha Gosvami.  How will it be possible for me to attain my desire? 
 
(3) Among the devotees Krsna dasa Kaviraja is extremely expert at relishing the transcendental nectar of the mellows of love of God.  When the stones hear his Caitanya-caritamrta andGovinda Lilamrta, they begin to melt in ecstasy.  In spite of this, I have no appreciation in my heart. 
 
4) Furthermore, I refuse even to associate with the friends and companions of these great souls.  How sad is my tale.  I have spent my life uselessly.  Fie, fie on Narottama dasa!
