Mama Mandire


(written by Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura)

Mama mana mandire raha nisi-din
krsna murari sri krsna murari

bhakti priti mala candan
tumi nio he nio krsna-nandan

jivana marana tava puja nivedan
sundara he mana-hari

eso nanda-kumar ar nanda-kumar
habe prema-pradipe arati tomar

nayana jamuna jhare anibar
tomara virahe giridhari

MAMA MANDIRE/synapsis
Bhaktivinoda offers his devotion, love, flower garlands, and sandalwood to Krishna Murari and asks him to always abide in the temple of his heart. Feeling the pain of separation his tears are like the waters of the Yamuna river, cascading incessantly from his eyes. He wishes to live his life absorbed in kirtan rasa.
