yogara thovaa bhogara thovaa
sangara thovaa sangavigee naha
yasya brahmani ramate chittam - 2
nandati nandati nanda theva - 2

One may take delight in yoga or bhoga, may have attachment or detachment. But only he whose mind steadily delights in Brahman enjoys bliss, no one else.

yaavat pavano nivasathi dehe
thaavat pruchchhati kushalam gayhe
gatavati vaayau dehaa paaye-2
bharyaa bibyati tasmin kaaye-2

When one is alive, his family members enquire kindly about his welfare. But when the soul departs from the body, even his wife runs away in fear of the corpse.

jathilo mundii lujnchhita keshaha
kaashhaa yaambara bahu-krita veshhaha
pashyan napi-chana pashyati mudoo-2
rudaranii metham bahu-krita veshhaha-2

There are many who go with matted locks, many who have clean shaven heads, many whose hairs have been plucked out; some are clothed in saffron, yet others in various colors --- all just for a livelihood. Seeing truth revealed before them, still the foolish ones see it not.

kaate kaantaa dhana-gata chintaa
vaatula kintava naastini yantaa
trijagati-sajjana sangati-raikaa-2
bhavati bhavaa-nava tarane naukaa-2

Oh mad man! Why this engrossment in thoughts of wealth? Is there no one to guide you? There is only one thing in three worlds that can save you from the ocean of samsara. Get into that boat of satsangha (knowledge of the Truth) quickly.

maa-kuru-dhana-jana yavvana garvam
harati-ni-may-shitha kaalaha sarvam
maayaa mayamidam akhilam bhootvaa-2
brahma-padam-tvam pravishavi dhetvaa-2

Do not boast of wealth, friends, and youth. Each one of these are destroyed within a minute. Free yourself from the illusion of the world of Maya and attain the timeless Truth.

naarii-sthana-bhara naabhii-desham
drishhtvaa- maagaa mohaa-vesham
ethan-maamsaava sadavi-kaaram-2
manasivi-chintaya vaaram-vaaram-2

Do not get drowned in delusion by going wild with passions and lust by seeing a woman's navel and chest. Bodies are flesh, fat and blood. Do not fail to remember this again and again in your mind.

kurute gangaa saagara gamanam
vrata-pari-paalana mathavaa daanam
gyaanavi-nina sarvama-tena-2
bhajatina muktim janmasha-tena-2

One may go to the Ganga, observe fasts, and give away riches in charity! Yet, devoid of jnana, nothing can give mukthi even at the end of a hundred births.

praanaayaamam pratyaahaaram
nityaa-nityavi vekavi chaaram

Regulate the pranas (life airs within), remain unaffected by external influences and discriminate between the real and the fleeting. Chant the holy name of God and silence the turbulent mind. Perform these with care, with extreme care

satsang atve nissang-atvam
nissang atve nirmo-hatvam
nirmo-hatve nishchala-tattvam-2
nishcala-tattve jiivan’muktihi-2

From Satsanga comes non-attachment, from non-attachment comes freedom from delusion, which leads to self-settledness. From self-settledness comes Jivan Mukti (liberation).

baala-sthava greeda sak-thaha
taruna-sthava tarunii sak-thaha
vriddha-sthava chintaa sak-thaha-2
parame-brahmani goapina sak-thaha-2

Childhood is lost in play. Youth is lost by attachment to woman. Old age passes away by thinking over many past things. Alas! Hardly is there anyone who yearns to be lost in Parabrahman.

punarapi jananam punarapi maranam
punarapi jananii jathare shaya-nam
punarapi jananam punarapi maranam
punarapi jananii jathare shaya-nam
iha-samsaare bahu-dust-thaare-2
kripayaa paare paahi muraare-2

Born again, death again, birth again to stay in the mother's womb! It is indeed hard to cross this boundless ocean of samsara. Oh Murari! Redeem me through Thy mercy.

bhaja-govindam bhaja-govindam - 2
govindam bhaja muuda-ma-the - 3

Worship Govinda, Worship Govinda, Worship Govinda.
