Gopinatha Part – 2

gopinath2 ,radha krsna

Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song “Gopinath Ghucao Samsara”. The official name for this song is Gopinath (Part two). This song is taken from the book Kalyana Kalpataru (Section: Upalabdhi Vijnapti Song 2). Bhaktivinoda Thakura says to pray to Shri Shri Krishna to deliver us from these material desires. Our minds are constantly wandering for lust, material pleasures, desires. We no longer intend to acquire this. We want to chant the Hare Krishna mantra and want to be free from the clutches of birth and death. We fools have abandoned Krsna for this material pleasure. We should take shelter at His lotus feet.
Part Two

gopināth, ghucāo saḿsāra jwālā
avidyā-jātanā, āro nāhi sahe,

gopīnāth, āmi to’ kāmera dāsa
viṣaya-bāsanā, jāgiche hṛdoye,
phādiche karama phāsa

gopināth, kabe vā jāgibo āmi
kāma-rūpa ari, dūre teyāgibo,
hṛdoye sphuribe tumi

gopīnāth, āmi to’ tomāra jana
tomāre chāriyā, saḿsāra bhajinu,
bhuliyā āpana-dhana

gopināth, tumi to’ sakali jāno
āpanāra jane, daṇḍiyā ekhano,
śrī-caraṇe deho sthāno

gopīnāth, ei ki vicāra taba
bimukha dekhiyā, chāro nija-jane,
na koro’ karuṇā-laba

gopīnāth, āmi to mūrakha ati
kise bhālo hoya, kabhu nā bujhinu,
tāi heno mama gati

gopīnāth, tumi to’ paṇḍita-bara
mūḍhera mańgala, tumi anveṣibe,
e dāse nā bhāvo’ para


1) O Gopinatha, please remove the torment of worldly existence. I can no longer tolerate the pain of ignorance and the repeated succession of births and deaths.

2) O Gopinatha, indeed I am a servant of lust. Worldly desires are awakening in my heart, and thus the noose of fruitive work is beginning to tighten.

3) O Gopinatha, when will I wake up and abandon afar this enemy of lust, end when will You manifest Yourself in my heart?

4) O Gopinatha, I am Your devotee, but having abandoned You and thus having forgotten my real treasure, I have worshiped this mundane world.

5) O Gopinatha, You know everything. Now, having punished Your servant, please give him a place at Your lotus feet.

6) O Gopinatha, is this Your judgment, that seeing me averse to You, You abandon Your servant and don’t bestow even a particle of mercy upon him?

7) O Gopinatha, I am certainly very foolish, and I have never known what is good for me. Therefore such is my condition.

8) O Gopinatha, You are indeed the wisest person. Please look for a way to bring about auspiciousness for this fool, and please do not consider this servant as an outsider.
