Kalyāṇa Kalpataru (The Desire Tree of Auspiciousness)
Prārthanā Lalasāmayī (Prayers Filled With Longing)
śrī-guru-baiṣṇaba-kṛpā kota dine habe
upādhi-rahita-rati citte upajibe
After how many days will I attain the mercy of my spiritual master and the Vaiṣṇavas? After how many days will spiritual love, love free of material misconceptions, take birth in my heart?
kabe siddha-deha mora hoibe prakāśa
sakhī dekhāibe more jugala-bilāsa
When will I attain my original spiritual body? When will a gopī show me the divine couple’s pastimes?
dekhite dekhite rūpa hoibo bātula
kadamba-kānane jā’bo tyaji’ jāti kula
When, gazing and gazing at the beautiful forms of the divine couple, will I become almost mad? When, leaving behind my caste and family, will I run into that kadamba forest?
sweda kampa pulakāśru baibarṇya praloya
stambha swara-bheda kabe hoibe udoya
When will I manifest the ecstatic symptoms of perspiring, trembling, tears, devastation, being stunned, standing erect of the body’s hairs, and speaking with a broken voice?
bhābamoya bṛndābana heribo nayane
sakhīra kiṅkorī ho’ye sebibo du’jane
When, filled with ecstatic love, will I see Vṛndāvana with my own eyes? When, becoming a gopī‘s maidservant, will I serve the divine couple?
kabe narottama saha sākhāta hoibe
kabe bā prārthanā-rasa citte prabeśibe
When will I meet Narottama dāsa? When will the nectar of his booṇ Prārthanā enter my heart?
caitanya-dāsera dāsa chāri’ anya rati
kara-juri’ māge aja śrī-caitanya mati
Rejecting all other attractions, this servant of Lord Caitanya’s servants folds his hands and begs that he may always meditate on Lord Caitanya.
