Jahnavi- tata- vane jaga jana- mana- lobha
 jahnavi- tata- vane jaga jana- mana- lobha
kiba jaya jaya goracander aratiko sobha
 kiba jaya jaya goracander aratiko sobha

 jahnavi- tata- vane jaga jana- mana- lobha
 jahnavi- tata- vane jaga jana- mana- lobha
 kiba vasi ache goracanda ratna- simhasane
 kiba vasi ache goracanda ratna- simhasane

 arati  karena brahma- adi deva- gane
 arati  karena brahma- adi deva- gane

 dakhine nitaicanda bame gadadhara
 dakhine nitaicanda bame gadadhara

 nikate advaita prabhu srivasa chatradhara
 nikate advaita prabhu srivasa chatradhara

 kiba sankha baje ghanta baje baje karatala
 kiba sankha baje ghanta baje baje karatala

 madhura mrdanga baje sunite rasala
 madhura mrdanga baje sunite rasala
 

 kiba jaya jaya goranchander aratiko sobha
 kiba jaya jaya goranchander aratiko sobha
 aratiko sobha

Arati (translation)

 All glories, all glories to the beautiful arati ceremony of Lord Caitanya
 in a grove on the banks of the Jahnavi (Ganges).
 It is captivating the minds of all the living entities in the universe.

 (repeat)

 How beautiful is Gauranga, seated on the jeweled throne.
 The demigods headed by Lord Brahma offer Him arati.

 How beautiful are Nityananda Prabhu on His right
 and Sri Gadadhara on His left,
 while nearby are Advaita Prabhu and Sri Srivasa, 
 who holds the umbrella over Gaurangaâs head.

 How beautiful are the sounds of the conch shells, the ringing bells, 
 and the sound of the kartals.
 All these sounds, along with that of the sweet mridanga,
 are supremely sweet and relishable to hear.

 Refrain
 Lord Gaurangaâs beautiful arati is captivating
 everyone in the universe.
