Vaishnava Prayers in English Poetry

by Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Back to Godhead, April 20, 1960

(1) Adore thy feet my Master And those who are devotees. Rupa with elder and the other Jiva Adwaita with societies.

Krishna Chaitanya is my Lord Radha Krishna and Lalita accord. Vishaka is there in the midst. That's my prayer in the gist.

(2) I wish my eyes flow in tears As my heart Gouranga it hears Hari thy name could I say Nitaichand thy blessings may

Curb my desire to Lord it over, Let my body in ecstasy shiver Let my mind freed of matter May I see Vrindaban scatter

May I know what Rupa is Who unfolds to me the loving pair Let my mind fixed up in them Narottam shall not be despair.

(3) Glory to Radha and Krishna in Vrindaban Equally to Govinda Gopinath and Madanmohan. Shyamkunda Radhakunda hilly Goverdhan Kalindi Jamuna river and forest Mahaban.

Keshighat Bansibat and dozens of garden The places of pastimes by Nanda's son Glory to Nanda Yasoda and cowherdsmen Sridam and friends who follow amen.

Glory to Vrisvanu his wife beautiful Glory to the full moon and the town of bull. Glory to Gopiswar at Vrindaban fixed Glory to the Brahmin who Krishna mixed.

Glory to Ramghat and Rohini's son Glory to all who reside Vrindaban. Glory to the Brahmin's wife and mermaid Who in devotional service respects paid.

Glory to the arena where dance performed Radha and Shyama who bumper stormed. Glory to the zest of excellent mellow. Paramourous feeling in-trance of kilo.

It's Krishnadas poet who chants Lotus feet of Jahnava he remembers.

Sri Srimad Bhakti-Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Prabhupada
by Goswami Abhay Charan Bhaktivedanta

Delhi, Wednesday 20th April, 1960

(1)


Adore thy feet my Master
And those who are devotees.
Rupa with elder and the other
Jiva Adwaita with societies.
Krishna Chaitanya is my Lord
Radha Krishna and Lalita accord.
Vishaka is there in the midst.
That's my prayer in the gist.

(2)

I wish my eyes flow in tears
As my heart Gauranga it hears
Hari thy name could I say
Nitaichand thy blessings may
Curb my desire to Lord it over,
Let my body in ecstacy shiver
Let my mind freed of matter
May I see Vrindaban scatter
May I know what Rupa is
Who unfolds to me the loving pair
Let my mind fixed up in them
Narottam shall not be in despair.

(3)

Glory to Radha and Krishna in Vrindaban
Equally to Govinda Gopinath and Madanmohan.
Shyamkunda Radhakunda hilly Goverdhan
Kalindi Jamuna river and forest Mahaban.
Keshighat Bansibat and dozens of garden
The places of pastimes by Nanda's son
Glory to Nanda Yasoda and cowherdsmen
Sridam and friends who follow amen.
Glory to Vrisvanu his wife beautiful
Glory to the fullmoon and the town of bull.
Glory to Gopiswar at Vrindaban fixed
Glory to the Brahmin who Krishna mixed.
Glory to Ramghat and Rohini's son
Glory to all who reside Vrindaban.
Glory to the Brahmin's wife and marmaid
Who in devotional service respects paid.
Glory to the arena where dance performed
Radha and Shyama who bamper stormed.
Glory to the zest of excellent mellow.
Paramourous feeling in-trance of kilo.
It's Krishnadas poet who chants
Lotus feet of Jahnava he remembers.
