āre bhāi nitāi āmāra dayāra avadhi
jīvera karuṇā kari deśe deśe phiri phiri
prema-dhana yāce nirabadhi
adwaitera sańge rańga dharaṇe nā yāya ańga
gorā-preme gaḍhā tanu-khāni
ḍhuliyā ḍhuliyā cale bahu tili hari bale
du’-nayane bahe nitā-ira pāṇi
kapāle tilaka śobhe kuṭila kuntala lole
guñjāra āṇṭunī cūḍā tāya
keśarī jiniyā kaṭi kaṭi-taṭe nīla dhaṭi
bājana nūpura rāńgā pāya
bhubana mohana beśa majā-ila saba deśa
rasābeśe aṭṭa aṭṭa hāsa
prabhu mora nityānanda kebala ānanda-kanda
guṇa gāya bṛndābana dāsa
(1) O Brothers! My Nitai’s mercy is limitless. He wanders village to village giving love of God to one and all.
(2) He always jokes with Advaita Acarya. His whole body is made of love for Gauranga. He is always intoxicated with the divine mood of love, thus is unable to walk properly. He raises his arms and sings “Haribol!” and He sheds tears from His two lotus eyes.
(3) Sri Nityananda is adorned with the tilaka on His forehead. He has curly hair matted with red berries. A blue belt encircles His lion-like waist. His feet look red. He wears anklebells on his reddish feet always making a tinkling, tinkling sound.
(4) His beauty enchants the whole world. He smiles and laughs while in the divine mood of love! Lord Nityananda Prabhu is my master. He’s full of nothing but pleasure. Thus, Vrindavana Das sings His glories.
