NITAI AMAR DAYAR AVADHI Lyrics:
are bhai! nitai amar doyara avadhi!
jivere karuna kori,’ dese dese phiri’ phiri’
prema-dhana jache nirabadhi
adwaitera sange ranga, dharane na jaya anga,
gora-preme gada tanu khani
dhuliya dhuliya chale, bahu tuli’ hari bole,
du-nayane bahe nitaiera pani || 1 ||
kapale tilaka sobhe, kutila-kuntala-lole
gunjara antuni chuda taya || 2 ||
kesarijiniya kati, kati tate niladhati
bajana nupura ranga paya || 3 ||
bhubana-mohana besa! majaila sava desa!
rasd bese atta atta hasa!
prabhu mora nityananda kevala ananda-kanda
guna gaya vrindavana dasa || 4 ||
NITAI AMAR DAYAR AVADHI Meaning:
1) 0 Brothers! My Nitai’s mercy is limitless. He wanders village to village giving prema-dhana (the mood of love of God) to one and all.
2) He always cuts jokes with Sri Advaita Acarya. His whole body is made of love for Gauranga Mahaprabhu. He is always intoxicated with prema-rasa. An intoxicated person is unable to walk properly. How does He walk? Like that: dhuliya dhuliya chale. Raising His arms and saying, “Haribol! Haribol! Haribol!” and shedding tears from His two lotus eyes.
3) Nice tilaka and curly locks beautifully decorate His forehead. His hair is bound up with red gunja. A blue belt encircles His lion-like waist. His feet look red. He wears nupura on his reddish feet always making a tinkling, tinkling sound.
4) His beauty enchants the whole world. Always absorbed in prema-rasa, He smiles and laughs! —Atta atta hasa! Vrndavana dasa sings, “Lord Nityananda Prabhu is my Prabhu (master). He’s full of nothing but pleasure.”
