Radha Krishna Prana Mora


Mantra: Radha Krishna Prana Mora

  • Complete Mantra:

    radha-krsna prana mora jugala-kisora
    jivane marane gati aro nahi mora

    kalindira kule keli kadambera vana
    ratana-bedira upara bosaba dujana

    syama-gauri-ange dibo candanera gandha
    camara dhulabo kabe heri mukha-candra

    ganthiya malatir mala dibo donhara gale
    adhere tuliya dibo karpura-tambule

    lalita visakha-adi jata sakhi-brnda
    ajnaya koribo seba caranaravinda

    sri-krsna-caitanya-prabhur daser anudasa
    seva abhilasa kore narottama-dasa

  • Language: Bengali
  • Translation:

    The divine couple, Sri Radha and Krishna are my life, my soul—my refuge. In a forest of small kadamba tress, on the bank of the Yamuna, I will seat the divine couple on a throne made of jewels. I will anoint Their dark and fair forms with sandalwood paste scented with cuya, and I will fan Them with a camara whisk. Oh, when will I behold Their moonlike faces?

    I will string together garlands of malati flowers and place them around Their necks. Then I will offer tambula scented with camphor to Their lotus mouths. With the permission of all the sakhis, headed by Lalita and Visakha, I will serve the lotus feet of Radha and Krishna.

    I, Narottama Dasa, the servant of Sri Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu, longs for this service to the divine couple.
