Prayers to the Holy Dhama

Navadvipa-pranama

navina-sri-bhaktim nava-kanaka-gaurakriti-pati
navaranya-shreni-nava-sura-saridvat valitam
navina-sri-radha-hari-rasa-mayotkirtana-vidhim
navadvipam vande-karunamadyan nava-rucim

I bow down to Sri Navadvipa, the transcendental land which is filled with forests ever colled by fresh breezes from the Ganga, where newly born devotion manifests by the unprecedented mercy of the Lord of golden complexion, and which bestows the ever-fresh mellow [rasa] of loud glorification of Radha-Krishna in Their highest ecstacy [maha-bhava].


Vrindavana-pranama

ananda-vrinda-paritundilam indiraya
ananda-vrinda-parinandita-nanda-putram
govinda-sundara-vadhu-parinanditam tad
vrindavanam madhura-murtam aham namami

I worship Sri Vrindavana, the abode of Srimati Radharani, which gives ever-cinreasing, overflowing bliss to the Son of Nanda Maharaja. There the beautiful damsels of Vraja increase the bliss of Lord Govinda even more, making Vrindavana the embodiment of all sweetness.


Yamuna-snana-mantra

kalinda-tanaye devi! paramananda-vardhini
snami te salile sarvan aparadhan vimocaya

O daughter of Kalinda who increases the Lord's bliss, as I bathe in your water kindly free me from all offences.


Ganga-pranama

sadyah pataka-samhantri sadhyo duhkha-vinashini
sukhada mokshada ganga gangaiva parama gatih

O Ganga, you immediately destroy all sins and miseries. You bestor ultimate happiness and the supreme liberation, for you are the ultimate shelter.
