Śrī Nāma Pracāra

Bhajana-gīta – 1

(1)
bhaja re bhaja re āmār mana ati manda
(bhajana vinā gati nāi re)
(bhaja) vraja-vane rādhā-kṛṣṇa-caraṇāravinda
(jñāna-karma parihari’ re)
(bhaja) (vraja-vane rādhā-kṛṣṇa)

My mind, how foolish you are! Oh engage in worship, engage in worship! (There is no other means except bhajana) (Worship) the lotus feet of Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa in the forests of Vraja! (Oh, give up jñāna and karma!) Just worship Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa in the forests of Vraja!

(2)
(bhaja) gaura-gadādharādvaita guru-nityānanda
(gaura-kṛṣṇe abheda jene’ re)
(guru kṛṣṇa-preṣṭha jene’ re)
(smara) śrīnivāsa, hari-dāsa, murāri, mukunda
(gaura-preme smara, smara re)
(smara) (śrīnivāsa hari-dāse)

Just worship Gaura, Gadādhara, Advaita, and the spiritual master, Nityānanda! (Oh, knowing Gaura and Kṛṣṇa to be non-different!) (Oh, knowing the guru to be very dear to Kṛṣṇa!) Remember Śrīnivāsa, Haridāsa, Murāri and Mukunda! (Oh, with prema for Gaura, remember, remember!) (Remember the two great personalities Śrīnivāsa and Haridāsa!)

(3)
(smara) rūpa-sanātana-jīva-raghunātha-dvandva
(kṛṣṇa-bhajana yadi karbe re)
(rūpa-sanātane smara)
(smara) rāghava-gopāla-bhaṭṭa svarūpa-rāmānanda
(kṛṣṇa-prema yadi cāo re)
(svarūpa-rāmānande smara)

(Remember) Rūpa, Sanātana, Jīva, and the two Raghunāthas! (Oh, if you are engaged in kṛṣṇa-bhajana!) (Just remember Rūpa and Sanātana!) Just remember Rāghava, Gopāla Bhaṭṭa, Svarūpa and Rāmānanda! (Oh, if you really seek kṛṣṇa-prema!) (Just remember Svarūpa and Rāmānanda!)

(4)
(smara) goṣṭhi-saha karṇapūra, sena śivānanda
(ajasra smara, smara re)
(goṣṭhi-saha karnapūre)
(smara) rūpānuga sādhu-jana bhajana-ānanda
(vraje-vāsa yadi cāo re)
(rūpānuga sādhu smara)

(Remember) Kavi Karṇapūra and all his family such Śivānanda Sena! (Oh, always remember, remember!) (Karṇapūra and his family!) Remember the sādhus who follow the path of Śrī Rūpa and who are blissful in bhajana! (Oh, if you want residence in Vraja!) (Remember the sādhus who follow the path of Śrī Rūpa)
