Kalyāṇa Kalpataru (The Desire Tree of Auspiciousness)
gopīnātha mama nibedana śuno
biṣayī durjana sadā kāma-rata
kichu nāhi mora guṇa
O Gopīnātha, please hear my confession. I am a materialist. I am a sinner. I am always lusty. I have no virtues.
gopīnātha āmāra bharasā tumi
tomāra caraṇe loinu śaraṇa
tomāra kiṅkora āmi
O Gopīnātha, I have faith in You. I take shelter of Your feet. I am Your servant.
gopīnātha kemone śodhibe more
nā jāni bhakati karme joḍa-mati
O Gopīnātha, how will You purify me? I do not understand devotional service. I think always of material things. Because of my own actions I have fallen into this horrible world.
gopīnātha sakali tomāra māyā
nāhi mama bala jñāna su-nirmala
swādhīna nāhe e kāyā
O Gopīnātha, everything here is Your Māyā. I have no power, knowledge, or purity. I am not independent.
gopīnātha niyata caraṇe sthāna
māge e pāmora kāndiyā kāndiyā
korohe koruṇā dāna
O Gopīnātha, weeping and weeping, this sinner begs for an eternal place at Your feet. Please give him a gift of Your mercy.
gopīnātha tumi to’ sakali pāra
durjane tarite tomāra śakati
ke āche pāpīra āra
O Gopīnātha, You have all power. You have the power to deliver any sinner. Who is more sinful than me?
gopīnātha tumi kṛpā pārābāra
jībera kāraṇe āsiyā prapace
līlā koile su-bistāra
O Gopīnātha, You are an ocean of mercy. For the conditioned souls’ sake You come to this world and enjoy many pastimes.
gopīnātha āmi ki doṣe doṣī
asura sakala pāilo caraṇa
binoda thākilo bāsi’
O Gopīnātha, I am the sinner of sinners. All the demons have already attained Your feet. Only Bhaktivinoda was left behind.
