MADHUR E HARINAMA Lyrics:

hare krsna hare
nitai ki nam eneche re
(nitai) nam eneche, namer hate
sraddha-mulye nam diteche re
hare krsna hare krsna krsna krsna hare hare re
hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare re
(nitai) jiver dasa malina dekhe’,
nam eneche braja theke re

e nam siva jape pancha-mukhe re
(madhur e harinam)

e nam brahma jape catur-mukhe re
(madhur e harindm)

e nam narada jape bina-jantre re
(madhur e harindm)

e nama base ajamilo vaikunthe gelo re
e nam bolte bolte braje calo re
(bhaktivinoda bole)

MADHUR E HARINAMA Meaning:

Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai (Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda) are so wonderfully merciful. They brought this harinama from Goloka-Vrndavana. Golokera prema-dhana hari-nama sankirtana. It doesn’t belong to this material world. Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai brought it here because they are so wonderfully merciful. Who is the custodian of nam-hatta? Sri Nitai! Nama-hatta means market­place. A market-place where the (holy) name is sold and purchased. What is the price? The price is unflinching faith. He who has strong faith, unflinching faith in the Holy Name and faith in the words of sadhu, sastra, Sri Guru and Sri Krishna, only he can purchase it. The market is always eternally open.

hare krsna hare krsna krsna krsna hare hare re
hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare re

Sri Nitai is more merciful than Sriman Gauranga Mahaprabhu. Sri Gaurasundara (Lord Caitanya) is wonderfully merciful. Sri Nitai is more merciful than Sri Gaurasundara. Sri Nitai is so merciful. He saw that the jivas have been suffering here, drowning in this ocean of materialistic existence from time immemorial. His heart bleeds, so Sri Nitai felt love, affection and compassion for them. He became sympathetic for the suffering souls, so He brought the Holy Name from Sri Vrajabhumi for those Kali-yuga people.

Lord Sivaji with His five faces is chanting this madhura e harinama; this is so sweet this harinama! Lord Brahma chants this Sri- nama with His four faces, because it is so sweet!

Sri Narada Muni sings this Holy Name with his stringed instrument,
hare krsna hare krsna krsna krsna hare hare
hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
All are chanting because it is so sweet!

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura says, “By only obtaining the namabhasa stage (offenseless chanting), Ajamila, a greatly sinful person was delivered. All his sinful reactions were destroyed, then at last he went to Vaikuntha!” So Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura says, “Just chant this Name, utter this Holy Name and go to Sri Vrajabhumi.”
