Kirtaner Anga Sudhu Nahe Dhaka Dhol

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has written a song ”Kirtaner Anga Sudhu Nahe Dhaka Dhol” and the Official Name for this song is ”Vrndavane Bhajana Section 26 ”. This song is taken from the book Gaudiya Patrika. Bhakti Vedanta Prabhupad says that engaging one selves in Kirtans of Krishna will always get us closer to Him and engaging in material activities like newspapers, radio’s will deviate us from the love of Govinda.
 
(1)
kirtanera anga sudhu nahe dhaka dhol
adhunik dharaya nahe kirtaner rol
 
(2)
hari sevara anukula sakala-i madhava
tri-jagater bhokta hoy ekala yadava
 
(3)
mayar vaibhava yata radior sabda
kirtanera dvara sada koro taha stabdha
 
(4)
maya kackaci saba samvadera patra
kirtana koroho tahe jagate sarvatra

 
(1) The component of kirtana is not always through drums. The sound of kirtana is not this modern system.
 
(2) Anything favorable for devotional service is all nondifferent from Madhava. The only enjoyer of the three worlds is Yadava.
 
(3) Maya's pride and joy is in the words emanating from the radio. Destroy these words through the means of kirtana, always.
 
(4)  Maya's is all these newspapers. Preach that throughout the whole world.
