Mantra: Jiv Jago

  • Complete Mantra:

    jiv jago, jiv jago, gauracanda bole
    kota nidra jao maya pisacira kole

    bhajibo boliya ese samsara- bhitare
    bhuliya rohile tumi avidyara bhare

    tomare loite ami hoinu avatara
    ami bina bandhu ara ke ache tomara

    enechi ausadhi maya nasibaro lagi
    hari nama maha mantra lao tumi magi

    bhaktivinoda prabhu carane pariya
    sei hari nama mantra loilo magiya

  • Translation:

    Lord Gauranga is calling, “Wake up, sleeping souls! How long will you sleep in the lap of the witch called Maya? You were born in this world to worship the Lord, but you have forgotten…

    I have descended just to save you. Other than Me, you have no true friend in this world.

    I bring with me the medicine to wipe out the disease of illusion: the Maha Mantra of the Holy Names. Chant these names right away.

    Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur says, “I fall at the Lord’s feet, begging Him to give me the Maha Mantra.”
