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

Se rupa- madhuri-rasi, prana-kuvalaya-sasi
Praphullita habe nisi-dine

Tuwa adarsana-ahi, garale jaralo dehi,
Ciro-dina tapita jivana

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

Sri Rupa Manjari/translation

The lotus feet of Sri Rupa Manjari are my real wealth and treasure of my heart.
They are the object of my devotional service and worship.
They are the goal of my vows and the conclusion of the Vedas.
They give my life meaning and they are the perfection of rasa.
Both day and night, the waves of sweet beauty flowing from their divine lotus feet,will shine like the brilliant full moon upon my heart, soothing my afflicted soul.
Please be merciful and give me the shade of your lotus feet. Narottama das has taken shelter.
