Sri Gaura Nityanander Daya
(The Mercy of Gaura-Nityananda)

by Srila Locana dasa Thakura

(1)
parama karuna, pahui dui jana,
nitai gauracandra
saba avatara sara-siromani
kevala-ananda-kanda

These two lords, Nitai and Gaurachandra, are most compassionate. Of all the incarnations [avatara] of Godhead, they are the most perfect, for they are the unique source of joy.

(2)
bhaja bhaja bhai caitanya nitai
sudrdha visvasa kari
visaya chariya se rase majiya
mukha bala hari hari

Pray, O brothers! Pray with great faith to Chaitanya and Nitai. Give up the objects of sense gratification, absorb yourself in the flavours of their divine moode, and use your tongue to sing the names of Hari!

(3)
dekho ore bhai tribhuvane nai
emono dayala data
pasu pakhi jhure pasana vidare
suni janra guna-gatha

Just look, O my brothers! There are no more compassionate benefactors that Gaura-Nitai anywhere in the three worlds. Even the birds and beasts' hears melt when they hear their virtues.

(4)
samsare majiya rahili pariya
se pade nahila asa
apana karama bhuñjaye samana
kahaye locana-dasa

I have fallen into the worldly life, completely absorbed in mundane pursuits, and have never aspired to attaining their service. The god of judgment is making me suffer the consequences of my acts, so says Locana dasa.
