Sri Rupa Manjari


(by Narottama dasa, Bengali, 16th century)

Sri-rupa-manjari-pada, sei mora sampada
Sei mora bhajana-pujana
Sei mora prana-dhana, sei mora abharana
Sei mora jivanera jivana

Sei mora rasa-nidhi, sei mora vancha-siddhi
Sei mora vedera dharama
Sei brata, sei tapa, sei mora mantra- japa,
Sei mora dharama-karama

Ha ha rupa koro doya, deho more pada-chaya
Narottama loilo sarana
