(sung before honouring spiritual food)
maha-prasade govinde nama-brahmani vaishnave
svalpa-punya-vatam rajan vishvaso naiva jayate
O King, for those with little pious
credit, faith in maha-prasada, Sri Govinda, the Holy Name, and the Vaishnavas never arrives.
sharira avidya-jal, jodendriya tahe kal
jive phele vishaya sagore
tar madhye jihva ati, lobhamoy sudurmati
ta'ke jeta kothina somsare
krishna baro doyamoy, kori bare jihva joy,
svaprasad-anna dilo bhai
sei annamrita pao, radha-krishna-guna gao
preme dako caitanya-nita
O Lord, this material body is a lump of ignorance and
the senses are a network of paths leading to death. Somehow or other we have fallen into
this ocean of material sense enjoyment, and of all the senses the tongue is the
most voracious and uncontrollable. It is very difficult to conquer over the tongue
in this world. But You, dear Lord Krishna, are very kind to us. You have given
us this nice prasadam just to control the tongue. So now let us take
this prasadam to our full satisfaction and glorify Their Lordships
Sri Sri Radha and Krishna, and in love call for the help of Lord
Caitanya and Prabhu Nityananda.
