gurudev! krpa-bindu diya, koro'ei dase,
trnapekha ati hina
sakala sahane, bala diya koro',
sakale sammana korite sakati
deho' natha! jathajatha
tabe to' gaibo, hari-nama-sukhe
aparadha ha'be hata
kabe heno krpa, labhiya e jana,
krtartha hoibe, natha!
sakti-buddhi-hina, ami ati dina,
koro' more atma-satha
jogyata-vicare, kichu nahi pai,
tomara karuna - sara
karuna na hoile, kandiya kandiya,
prana na rakhibo ara
Gurudeva, give to this servant just
one drop of mercy. I am lower than a blade of grass. Give me all help. Give me
strength. Let me be as you are, without desires or aspirations.
I offer you all respects, for thus I may have the energy to
know you correctly. Then, by chanting the holy name in great ecstasy, all my
offenses will cease.
When will such mercy fall to this one who is weak and devoid
of intelligence? Allow me to be with you.
If you examine me, you will find no qualities. Your mercy is
all that I am made of. If you are not merciful unto me, I can on]y weep, and I
will not be able to maintain my life.
