Sri Sri Gaurasundara Avirbhava Vasare
(The Appearance Day of Sri Gaurasundara)


(1)
aruna vasane,  sonara suraja
udiche keno re aja
vasanta susama,  ujari apana
dhale keno jagamajha

On this day, why has the Golden Sun arisen wearing red cloth? Why has the wonderful season of Spring descended to the earth?

(2)
taru gulma-lata   apurva barata
bahe keno phale phule
bhrnga o vihange   keno heno range
sangita taranga tule

Why are all the trees, shrubs and creepers full of fruits and flowers?  Why do the birds and bees sing their songs with such bliss?

(3)
patita durjana   keno re garjana
ullase phatiya pade
vidya kula dhana   abhimani jana
keno mlana duhkha bhare

Why are the most fallen and wicked people now effulgent and full of happiness?  Why have those with great knowledge, noble birth, material wealth, and great pride become so unfortunate?

(4)
akasa vatasa   ghucaiya trasa
asvase bhasaye deya
sadhu-jana mana  sukha vitarana
avese unmada haya

A heavenly wind has dispelled all worries and has brought hope, and the sadhus have become mad with a bliss that is spreading everywhere.

(5)
caudikete dhvani   ki apurva suni
bahu-jana uccarola
hare krsna rama  nama divya-dhama
hari hari hari bala

Never before has such a sound been heard – from all directions, a thousand voices chanting the Names of Hare, Krsna and Rama! Everywhere becomes the divine abode of the Holy Name. Hari Hari Hari bol!!!

(6)
phalguni purnima  hindola rangima
sujana-bhajana rage
sankirtana sane  marama gahane
na jani ki bhava jage


During the full Moon of the month of Phalguna, on the colorful day of the swing festival, the devotees worship the Lord with love. No one can comprehend the feelings and sunstance that awakens within the heart from this sankirtana.

(7)
sandhya samagama  tapana magana
keno hema ghana kole
aparupa kata  purava parvata
suvarna candrama bhale

As twilight nears, the warm sun sets; but why is his golden hue embraced by a dark cloud? That indescribably beautiful Golden Moon has arisen, illuminating the eastern mountains.

(8)
suvarna candrama  pasiche nilima
se nila bilina heme
ithe kiba bhaya   sadhu-jana gaya
kalanka na rahe preme

The Golden Moon covers the dark blue sky, and its darkness disappears into gold. At that moment the sadhus sing that divine love has descended and no contamination can remain.

(9)
mahajane bale  grahanera chale
sange nama sankirtana
gaura-candrodaya  papa rahu ksaya
candra-sobha prema dhana

The mahajanas have explained that this eclipse is a trick to make everyone chant the Holy Name in sankirtana. When Gauracandra descended, the sins of Rahu were destroyed and the moon was filled with the wealth of illustrious love for Krsna.

(10)
marmmajna sakale  kahe kutuhale
nilima bilina cande
channa avatara  lukana kahara
radha-ruci-rupa-cande

All those who understand the essence of everything become ecstatic when the Dark Blue hides within Moon. He is the hidden avatara who hides Himself under the moon of the effulgent beauty of the love of Sri Radha.

(11)
ithe hena stuti  radha-bhava dyuti
suvalita syamarao
udilo gauranga  nama-prema sanga
jaya jaya gora gao

This prayer is to the beautiful Lord Syama, who now has the heart and halo of Sri Radha – Gauranga, who had descended and brought nama-prema (love for the Holy Name). Continuously chant, “Jaya Jaya Gaura!”
