Hunsar Theko Bhulo Nako

Hunsar Theko Bhulo Nako


Bhaktivinoda Thakur
has written this song “Hunsar Theko Bhulo Nako”The Official name of this song is Baul Sangit Song 7”. This song is taken from the book Baul Sangit. Bhaktivinod Thakur advice’s us to stay away from people who have sahajiya tendency. He tells us to concentrate in Sadhana-Bhakti. If we focus in this type of bhakti then we can improve our devotional services and our love for Lord Krishna will be stable. In Sadhana-Bhakti we will not impose our own concocted philosophy because this will deviate us from true bhakti and Bhajan.

(mana amar) hunsa’r theko, bhulo’ nako,
suddha sahaja tattva-dhane
noile mayar vase, avasese, kandte ha’be ciro-dine
 
(2)
suddha-jive jada nai bhai, thika bujho tai,
nije sakhi (se) vrndavane
se jakhan krsna-candre bhaje, sukhete maje,
madhura-rase anuksane
 
(3)
jada-dehe ta’r sadhana-bhakti, jnana-virakti,
deher yatra dharma-bhave
se grhe thake, bane ba thake, majiye dake,
(`krsna’) bole’ eka-mane
 
(4)
eke-i to’ boli sahaja-bhajan, suddha-mana,
krsna pa’bar eka upaya
iha chadi’ je aropa kore, sei to’ mare,
ta’r to’ nahi bhajan hoy
 
(5)
canda-bauler e visvas, chota haridas,
ekatu kevala vipathe cale’
saci-suter krpay, dura ho’ye, hay,
na pay ar gaura-carane
 
(1) O my dear mind! Please be alert and cautious do not forget the treasure that is the principle of suddha sahaja tattva (pure natural truth as opposed to bogus sahajiya tendency). Otherwise ultimately in the grip of Maya you will perpetually weep.
 
(2) The pure spirit soul is not material, O brother understand this correctly but is actually a female sakhi living in Vrndavana. When the soul worships her Lord Krsna-candra in this mood, then she becomes immersed in pure happiness, incessantly tasting the sweetness of the madhura-rasa.
 
(3) While still living within the material body, she engages in sadhana-bhakti (regulated devotional service), developing detachment through the cultivation of jnana (transcendental knowledge), and thus passes life in accordance with religious principles. Such a devotee lives either at home or in the forest, and remains engrossed in calling out the name "Krsna!" with single-minded diligence.
 
(4) Verily this is called sahaja-bhajan, or natural worship. It is conducted with a purified mind, and is the one and only means for attaining Krsna. Whoever deviates from this process by imposing their own concocted philosophy indeed perishes; their activities are not bhajan.
 
(5) This is the conviction of Chand Baul. The devotee of Lord Chaitanya named Chota Haridasa somehow embarked on an improper path; by the mercy of the Son of mother Saci, he was cast away, alas, and did not again attain the lotus feet of Gauranga.
