Sri Guru-vandana
(sung during Srila Prabhupada's guru-puja)

(1)

sri-guru-carana-padma, kevala-bhakati-sadma,
bando mui savadhana mate
yahara prasade bhai, e bhava toriya yai,
krishna-prapti hoy yaha hoite

(2)

guru-mukha-padma-vakya, cittete koriya aikya,
ar na koriho mane asha
sri-guru-carane rati, ei se uttama-gati,
ye prasade pure sarva asha

(3)

cakhu-dana dilo yei, janme janme prabhu sei,
dibya-jñan hride prokashito
prema-bhakti yaha hoite, avidya vinasha yate,
vede gay yahara carito

(4)

sri-guru karuna-sindhu, adhama janara bandhu,
lokanatha lokera jiavana
ha ha prabhu koro doya, deho more pada-chaya,
ebe yasha ghushuk tribhuvana

dui pade laila sharana
prabhupada-patita-pavana


(1) The lotus feet of our spiritual master are the only way by which we can attain pure devotional service. I bow to his lotus feet with great awe and reverence. By his grace one can cross the ocean of material suffering and obtain the mercy of Krishna.

(2) My only wish is to hae my consciousness purified by the words emanating from his lotus mouth. Attachment to his lotus feet is the perfection that fulfills all desires.

(3) He opens my darkened eyes and fills my heart with transcendental knowledge. He is my lord birth after birth. From him ecstatic prema emanates; by him ignorance is destroyed. The Vedic scriptures sing of his character.

(4) Our spiritual master is the ocean of mercy, the friend of the poor, and the lord and master of the devotees. O master! Be merciful unto me. Give me the shade of your lotus feet. May your fame be spread all over the three worlds. We take shelter of your lotus feet.
