Song 3

Text 1

āmāra emona bhāgya kota dine ha’be
āmāre āpana boli’ janibe baiṣṇabe

After how many days will I become fortunate? After how many days will a Vaiṣṇava say that I am his servant?

Text 2

śrī-guru-caraṇāmṛta-mādhwīka-sebane
matta ho’ye kṛṣṇa-guṇa gābo bṛndābane

When, intoxicated by drinking the mādhvīka nectar at my spiritual master’s feet, will I sing Lord Kṛṣṇa’s glories in Vṛndāvana?

Text 3

karmī jñānī kṛṣṇa-dweṣī bahirmukha-jana
ghṛṇā kori’ akicane koribe barjana

When will this poor person, feeling disgust and horror, turn away from the karmīs, jñānīs, enemies of Lord Kṛṣṇa, and persons who have turned their backs on Lord Kṛṣṇa?

Text 4

karma-joḍa-smārta-gaṇa koribe siddhānta
ācāra-rohita ei nitānta aśānta

When will the karmīs and smārta-paṇḍitas decide that I am very restless and misbehaved?

Text 5

bātula boliyā more paṇḍitābhimānī
tyajibe āmāra saṅga māyābādī jānī

When will the māyāvādīs, proud of being great scholars, call me a madman and shun me?

Text 6

ku-saṅga-rohita dekhi’ baiṣṇaba-sujana
kṛpā kori’ āmāre dibena āliṅgana

When, seeing that I shun all bad association, will the saintly Vaiṣṇavas kindly embrace me?

Text 7

sparśiyā baiṣṇaba-deha e durjana chāra
ānande lobhibe kabe sattwika-bikāra

When, touching a Vaiṣṇava’s body, will this sinner, this pile of ashes, joyfully attain the ecstasies of sāttvika-bhāva?
