Nimai of Nabadwip
Patit Pavana das Adhikary (Patit Uddharana das)
JOYS OF CHANTING HARE KRISHNA
With open heart and arms raised high the Lord taught of the Name,
And soon unto His lotus feet all sorts of people came.
Many mystic yogis flocked to Him forgetting pranayam.
They found the highest link to God by chanting Hari Nam.
Householders who were trapped by thinking only of their wives,
Soon joined the troupe ofsankirtan to dedicate their lives.
Wise pandits of polemic schools put padlocks on the door.
And joined the thunderous sankirtan to raise the righteous roar.
Jnani sages seeking oneness, in blinding light to merge,
Gave up on trying to join with God, and got the chanting urge.
With unflinching loving service ladies, too, became obsessed.
As in their hearts the seeds of bhakti yoga were impressed.
Lord Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, avatar of gold!
His blazing bliss burned into balefires hearts once frozen cold.
With potency that shook the earth like blasts felt near and far,
Of cannon fire and blasts of bombs heard during times of war.
All people heard the chanting and surrendered to its force,
As flooding waters carry with them all within their course.
The Lord inspired each simple unsophisticated man,
For saving the most fallen souls, He's called Patit Pavan.
Becoming one with brahmajyoti where the yogis hide,
Was shown to Mahaprabhu's bhaktas to be suicide.
Designs for mundane paradise appeared to all as dreams,
They cast aside arrangements for their false utopian schemes.
Enjoyment of the body seemed as chewing of he chewed,
While senses seemed as sinful serpents of temptations lewd.
Samsara's soul were seen as chained from kings down to the worm,
From even Indra, Swarga's king, to the indragopa germ.
Devoid of bhakti one's position never could be worse,
But Nimai's bhaktas saw the Lord throughout the Universe.
The Lord experienced mahabhava, and danced in frenzied trance,
Devotees swooned when list'ning to His mind-delivering chants.
