Sarirer Sukhe Mana Deho Jalanjali

Sarirer Sukhe Mana Deho Jalanjali , prabhu pada

Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song ”Sarirer Sukhe Mana Deho Jalanjali”. The Official Name for this song is Upalabdhi: Nirveda-Laksana-Upalabdhi Song 5. This song is taken from the book Kalyana Kalpataru. Bhaktivinoda Thakura says that this body is nothing but some elements. Why are we wasting our time thinking about this body. The beauty and strength of this body will not last for ever. The spirit soul is very pure and due to its karma it has to enter the material body. Hence its purity gets trapped in the material body. We belong to Sri Krishna lord who resides in Vrindavana Goloka. Hence our main aim should be to satisfy Him.
sarirer sukhe, mana, deho jalanjali
e deho tomar noy, baranca e satru soy,
sarvada ihar bale rohiyacho bali
kintu nahi jano, mana, e sarir acetana
po' de roy jibana-balaye
eher saundarya-bala—nahe cirodina
ataeva taha lo'ye, na thako garvita ho'ye,
stoma' prati ei anunoy
suddha-jibe siddha-dehe sadai nabina
jadibhuta deho-joga, jibaner karma-bhoga,
jiber patana jadasroy
(1) My dear mind, kindly cease from your endeavors to supply artificial "pleasures" to the material body. This body does not belong to you for enjoying as you please. Rather, it is the most formidable enemy of one who is trying to practice devotional service in his siddha-deha, or spiritual body. But you, my dear mind, always depend on this body and try to squeeze whatever pleasure you can right up to the limits of its physical abilities. But what you’re not understanding, dear friend, is that this material body is insensitive and unconscious, and that it simply drops down on the ground when your life is finished.
(2) The handsomeness of this body, as well as its strength and abilities, do not last for very long. Therefore my earnest request to you is that you please accept all these truths and don't become proud. The pure spirit soul in his siddha-deha is eternal and ever-fresh. But such a transcendental soul meets his downfall when he becomes stupefied within the cage of the material body. Thus his pure spiritual life is choked as he is rendered insensitive due to enjoying the results of temporary fruitive activities within the shackles of karma.
