Poem: Prayers to Lord Chaitanya

Amidst a drought of pure devotion, You appeared in your form like molten gold, Hearing the pleas of your great devotee advaita, You saved the world from its illusory fold...


Renunciation and knowledge you taught us, Gave a process simple and full of bliss, An escalator for going back to Godhead, Only a fool could ever miss...


The path of truth as shown by You, Remains above the mortal clime, Delivering millions by your grace, Ages old yet so sublime..


You dance to the tune of your own name, Ornamenting this supremely sublime path, Saving the wise who heartily embrace it, From the grip of maya's tormenting wrath...


You appeared in the mood of your consort, To taste the nectar of her love for you, Your opulence attracts your own self, An enigma revealed to only a few..


The worship of Your name you said, In every town and village will spread, Your dear devotee fulfilled this prophecy, Delivering a world royally misled..


Giving the greatest gift to the worst of our kind, The extent of your grace is limitlessly wide, O most munificent of all the supreme Lords, May your mercy cut through my envy and pride...


I put this fortune for another day, Due to my lustful pursuits and devotion mild, From this calamity I pray that You save me, O mother Saci's divinely merciful child...
