Nimai of Nabadwip
Patit Pavana das Adhikary (Patit Uddharana das)
Some jealous Hindus claimed that kirtan preyed upon their peace,
The spread the rumor that the Kazi would soon send police.
This frightenend Shrivas into begging Lord Nrisimhadeva,
That from attacks and persecution kirtan would be saved.
Regretting His devotees were imposed upon to feel
Anxiety, the Lord resolved that He would now reveal,
His role as Cowherd Krishna, Paramount Divinity,
Then seeing some grazing cows, He shouted, "I am He!"
He ran into the house of Shrivas, saying "Now behold,
I stand here in the Form you worship, Shrivas, be consoled!"
And Nimai stood as Braja's Darling with His wealth arrayed,
When Shrivas opened wide his eyes and saw Him there he prayed,
"I offer dandavats to Thee, O King of Braja's Son,
Be merciful to me, dear Krishna, Omnipotent One!
Repeatedly I bow my head unto your lotus feet.
Where jingling silver ankle bells intone a ringing sweet.
Thy beauteous hair is long and black, a smile adorns Thy face,
The calf-engraved kaustubha gem Your broadened chest does grace."
And from thy body emanates a sun-like lustrous shine,
Thy graceful Form's the ornament of ornaments divine.
Eyes moist with tears the pandit gathered ghee-lamp, incense, fan,
Pure Ganges drops and Tulsi leaves, to have the Lord's darshan.
Around His holy lotus feet drew family members dear,
And beckoning with grace the Lord bade each of them, "Come near."
"Allow your hearts to be devoted only unto Me."
The Lord requested as He touched their heads with lotus feet.
"And feel no grief for cheaters filled with mayavada's lies,
Unless allowed by Me these rascals never can arise."
The Lord then called the pandit's daughter young Narayani,
And from her lotus eyes her tears for Krishna made a plea.
And they were told this revelation was to stay concealed,
For unto His elects alone the lord will be revealed.
