Krishna Hare, Hare Krishna mantra, Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Veda Vidhi Anusare

Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song“Veda Vidhi Anusare” The official name of this song isYamuna Bhavavali Song 22.This song is taken from the book Gitamala. Bhaktivinoda Thakura says that due to our past sins we might have to take birth again. But one should pray to Krishna Hare that even if one has to take birth as an insect ,it should be at a Vaishnava’s place. Taking birth at Vaishnav’s place will be very blissful and we can get mercy of Kṛṣṇa.

veda-vidhi-anusare karma kori' e somsare
punah punah jiba janma paya
purba-krta-karma-phale tomara ba iccha-bale
janma jadi labhi punaraya
tabe eka katha mama suno he purusottama
taba dasa-sangi-jana-ghore
kita-janma jadi hoya tahate-o doyamoya
rohibo he santusta antore
taba dasa-sanga-hina je grhastha arbacina
ta'ra grhe caturmukha-bhuti
na hao kakhana hari kara-dwoya joda kori'
kore bhaktibinoda minati
(1) Oh my Lord Hari! By working fruitively according to the Vedic injunctions in this material world, the soul continuously takes birth again and again. If I also have to take birth once again according to Your will, due to the results of my previous fruitive reactions, then I have just one request to make to You, oh Lord.
(2) So then kindly hear me, oh Purusottama! I have only one petition to submit before You. If I can only take my next birth even as an insignificant insect within the home of Your loving servant, then I would become completely satisfied, oh Most Merciful Lord.
(3) Please never, never let me take birth in the home of a foolish householder who is bereft of the association of Your eternal servant, even if his household opulences rival those of Lord's Brahma's. This is the only humble prayer that Bhaktivinoda is making now with folded hands.
