1 Gratitude to Guru
tasmai sri guruve namaha
I offer my respects to the spiritual teachers
2 Glory to Caitanya
Glory to Chaitanya who gave emphasis to kirtan as the easiest and most practical form of awakening spirituality
3 Universal Kirtan
brahma bole chatur mukhe krishna krishna hare hare,
mahadeva pancha mukhe rama rama hare hare
Brahma sings in kirtan “krishna krishna hare hare” in ecstasy with four mouths and Shiva sings “rama rama hare hare” as if with five mouths.
4 Reaching the Stars
om namoh bhagavate vasudevaya
I offer my respects to the supreme Divine.
5 Spiritual Purpose
govinda jaya jaya gopala jaya jaya radharamana hari govinda jaya jaya
Oh master and protector of my senses allow me victory in fulfilling spiritual purpose and in that way to give you pleasure.
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Oh all attractive masculine divine, or affectionate feminine divine, please allow me to be connected with you in pure love!
