Sri Nagara-sankirtan
(Street Sankirtana)

by Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura

(1)
nadiya godrume nityananda mahajan
patiyache nam-hatta jivera karan

(2)
(sraddhavan jan he! sraddhavan jan he!)
prabhura ajnay bhai, magi ei bhikha
bolo krsna, bhajo krsna, koro krsna sikha

(3)
aparadha-sunya ho'ye, loho krsna nam
krsna mata, krsna pita, krsna dhana-pran

(4)
krsnera samsara koro, chari'anacar
jive doya krsna-nam sarva-dharma sar

(1) On the island of Godruma in Nabadwip Dham, the magnanimous Lord Nityananda has opened up the Marketplace of the Holy Name, meant for the deliverance of all fallen souls.

(2) O men of faith! O men of faith! On Lord Gauranga's order, brothers, I beg this one thing of you: Chant Krishna's name, worship Krishna, and learn about Krishna.

(3) Being careful to remain free of offenses, just take the holy name of Krishna. Krishna is your mother, Krishna is your father, and Krishna is the treasure of your very life.

(4) Giving up all improper behavior, carry on your worldly duties only in relation to Krishna. Chanting the holy name of Krishna and showing compassion to all living beings is the essence of all religion.
