Bhajan: Sri Nama-kirtana

Sri Nama-kirtana
Chanting of the Holy Names
(from Gitavali)
 
(1)
yasomati-nandana, braja-baro-nagara,
gokula-ranjana kana
gopi-parana-dhana, madana-manohara,
kaliya-damana-vidhana
1) Lord Krsna is the beloved son of mother Yasoda; the transcendental lover in the land of Vraja; the delight of Gokula; Kana [a nickname of Krsna]; the wealth of the lives of the gopis. He steals the mind of even Cupid and punishes the Kaliya serpent.
(2)
amala harinam amiya-vilasa
vipina-purandara, navina nagara-bora,
bamsi-badana suvasa
2) These pure, holy names of Lord Hari are full of sweet, nectarean pastimes. Krsna is the Lord of the twelve forests of Vraja, He is ever-youthful and is the best of lovers. He is always playing on a flute, and He is an excellent dresser.
(3)
braja-jana-palana, asura-kula-nasana
nanda-godhana-rakhowala
govinda madhava, navanita-taskara,
sundara nanda-gopala
3) Krsna is the protector of the inhabitants of Vraja; the destroyer of various demoniac dynasties; the keeper and tender of Nanda Maharaja's cows; the giver of pleasure to the cows, land, and spiritual senses; the husband of the goddess of fortune; the butter thief; and the beautiful cowherd boy of Nanda Maharaja.
(4)
yamuna-tata-cara, gopi-basana-hara,
rasa-rasika, krpamoya
sri-radha-vallabha, brndabana-natabara,
bhakativinod-asraya
4) Krsna wanders along the banks of the River Yamuna. He stole the garments of the young damsels of Vraja who were bathing there. He delights in the mellows of the rasa dance; He is very merciful; the lover and beloved of Srimati Radharani; the great dancer of Vrndavana; and the shelter and only refuge of Thakura Bhaktivinoda.
