(mana āmār) huṅsā’r theko, bhūla’ nāka
śuddha sahaja tattva-dhane
naile māyār vaśe, avaśeṣe
kāṅdate ha’be cira-dine
(O mind!) Beware! Do not forget the wealth of śuddha-sahaja-tattva*. Otherwise, eventually the influence of Māyā will make you weep forever.
* Śuddha-sahaja-tattva –pure and natural reality.
śuddha-jīve jaḍa nāi bhāi, ṭhika bujha tāi
nije sakhī (se) vṛndāvane
se jakhana kṛṣṇa-candre bhaje, sukhete maje,
O brother! The pure jīva is not material. Understand this properly. The jīva is a sakhī in Vṛndāvana. When she worships Kṛṣṇa-candra, she becomes absorbed in bliss, constantly surrounded by madhura-rasa.
jaḍa-dehe tā’ra sādhana-bhakti, jñāna-virakti,
deher yātrā dharma-bhāve
se gṛhe thāke, vane vā thāke, majiye ḍāke,
(`kṛṣṇa’) bale’ eka-mane
Within this material body, she performs sādhana-bhakti and attains detachment through jñāna. The journey of this body passes in accordance with dharma. She remains at home or in the forest, and is absorbed in calling out, “Kṛṣṇa!” with a single mind.
ekei ta’ bali sahaja-bhajana, śuddha-mana
kṛṣṇa pābār eka upāya
ihā chāḍi’ ye āropa kare, sei ta’ mare
tā’r ta’ nāhi bhajana haya
Indeed, this is called sahaja-bhajana. With a pure mind, this is the means to attain Kṛṣṇa. One who rejects (this path) and takes up their own imposed philosophy, certainly perishes. Their process is not bhajana.
cāṅda bāulaer e viśvāsa,
ekaṭu kevala vipathe cale’
śacī-suter kṛpāya, dūra ha’ye, hāya,
nā pāya āra gaura-caraṇe
This is Cāṅda Bāula’s belief. Choṭa Haridāsa* went a little astray. By the mercy of the Son of Śacī, he was sent away. Alas! He did not again attain the feet of Gaura.
