ST32. PANCHARATNA KIRTANA II

2. The second song In Raga Gowla and Tala Adi,
“Dudukukala Nanne Dhora
Kodukup Brochura Endho”

“Which prince will save me
When deeply involved I’m
In all the bad habits,
While yielding myself in lusts.”

“Oh moon, you wake up the lily,
As a flower, to blossom fully,
The loveliest one on its part,
Just like Lakshmidevi’s heart”

“You’re beyond the reach
Of our intellect or speech,
Of the fact, you’re everywhere,
I was not at all aware.”

“As a boy of young age,
I, myself, didn’t engage
To drink the nectar juice
Of the Bhajan activities.”

“In me grew up desires
To covet other’s riches,
And to eke out my livelihood,
Here and there, I wandered.”

“I talked to them nicely.
I spent the time happily.
This much is life, I thought,
In this evil net, I was caught.”

“To cover up the dancers,
Lovers, girls and others
I attracted them nicely
With my speech lovely.”

“Ignorant of musical notes,
Raga, Tala or the pitches.
With a stone-like-heart, I took it,
Among devotees, I was the best.”

“Oh Lord of Lords! I thought
House, wife, children, servants
Plenty of wealth is one’s life
And spent my days on that belief.”

“To get them all, in my attempt,
I forgot to worship your lotus feet.
Not meditating on your lovely face,
I was drowned in material pleasures.”

“Not knowing the importance
Of the human life’s existence,
Lust, jealousy, miserliness,
Over powered my manliness.”

“Though I was born
In the family of Brahmin,
I did all the inferior actions
Against the religious tenets.”

“Some days, I wandered for girls,
And sometime to get riches,
If so, which prince will help me
In saving sinners like me?”
