Kabe Sri Caitanya More Koribena Doya

Kabe Sri Caitanya More Koribena Doya

Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song “Kabe Sri Caitanya More Koribena Doya”. The Official Name for this song is Ucchvasa: Prarthana Dainyamayi Song 1. This song is taken from the book Kalyana Kalpataru. Bhaktivinoda Thakura pleads for the mercy of Vaishnavas. He will cry and plead them for their shelter. Being conceited and full of ego he was not able to associate with pure Vaishnavas. When the Vaishnava's will see his pitiful state they will appeal to Sri Krishna. Approving the Vaishanava's appeal Govinda will give shelter at His lotus feet.

kabe srī caitanya more karibena dayā
kabe āmi paiba vaiṣṇava-pada-chāyā
 
(2)
kabe āmi chāḍiba e viṣayābhimāna
kabe viṣṇu-jane āmi kariba sammāna
 
(3)
gala-vastra kṛtāsjali vaiṣṇava-nikaṭe
dante tṛṇa kari’ dāḍāiba niṣkapaṭe

kādiyā kādiyā jānāiba duḥkha-grāma
saḿsāra-anala haite māgiba visrāma
 
(5)
suniyā āmāra duḥkha vaiṣṇava ṭhākura
āmā’ lāgi’ kṛṣṇe āvedibena pracura
 
(6)
vaiṣṇavera āvedane kṛṣṇa dayāmaya
e hena pāmara prati ha’bena sa-daya
 
(7)
vinodera nivedana vaiṣṇava-caraṇe
kṛpā kari’ sange laha ei akiscane
 
 
1) When will Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu show His causeless mercy to me by allowing me to attain the shade of the lotus feet of all the Vaisnavas?
 
2) When will I be able to give up this false ego which is so deeply engrossed in sense gratification? And when will I be able to properly honor the associates of the Lord?
 
3) I will stand before the Vaisnavas with folded hands, a cloth binding my neck, and a straw in between my teeth, sincerely awaiting their order.
 
4) Weeping and weeping, I will understand the real nature of this abode of misery, and I will beg for relief from the blazing fire of this material world.
 
5) Hearing about all of my miserable sufferings, the Vaisnavas Thakura will submit an appeal unto the Lord Krsna on my behalf.
 
6) By the prayer of the Vaisnavas the all-merciful Lord Krsna will then become compassionate towards such a sinner as me.
 
7) Bhaktivinoda's prayer unto the lotus feet of the Vaisnavas is that: "Please be merciful and take this worthless person into your association".
