1. Jiv Jago – Sleeping Soul (Ten Million Moons) by Gaura Vani

by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur
Language: Bengali/English

Wake up! Time to wake up.
Come on now, wake up. Wake up, sleeping soul.

jiv jago, jiv jago, gauracanda bole
kota nidra jao maya pisacira kole

bhajibo boliya ese samsara- bhitare
bhuliya rohile tumi avidyara bhare

Now, you know you can’t sleep forever.
Shake off that darkness.
Rise and greet the morning light.
Wake up, sleeping soul!

tomare loite ami hoinu avatara
ami bina bandhu ara ke ache tomara

Can you hear me calling?
We’ve been sleeping too long in illusion, I said, illusion.
Oh no, no!

enechi ausadhi maya nasibaro lagi
hari nama maha mantra lao tumi magi

I see the golden sun. I see the golden sun.
(I see it rising)

bhaktivinoda prabhu carane pariya
sei hari nama mantra loilo magiya

Translation

Lord Gauranga is calling, “Wake up, sleeping souls! How long will you sleep in the lap of the witch called Maya? You were born in this world to worship the Lord, but you have forgotten¦

I have descended just to save you. Other than Me, you have no true friend in this world.

I bring with me the medicine to wipe out the disease of illusion: the Maha Mantra of the Holy Names. Chant these names right away.

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur says, “I fall at the Lord’s feet, begging Him to give me the Maha Mantra.”

WORD FOR WORD TRANSLATION: Jaya Radha Girivaradhari

TRANSLATION

1) All glories to Srimati Radharani and Giri Vara Dhari! He is the son of Nanda Maharaja. She is the darling of Maharaja Vrisabhanu.
2) He wears a peacock feather in His crown and a shining flute is placed on His lips. Her long braids appear brilliant and She has a gentle smile on Her face.
3) Wearing a garland of forest flowers, His neck is splendorous. Wearing a shimmering pearl necklace, Her neck is splendorous.
4) His yellow garments enchant the minds of everyone within the universe. Her blue garments display a brilliant effulgence.
5) Jeweled ankle bells resound on Their reddish lotus feet. The mind of Krsna Dasa is illuminated by Their splendorous presence.

4. Jamuna Puline (Bhakti Without Borders) by Madi Das and Acyuta Gopi

Jamuna Puline 

jamuna puline, kadamba kanane ki herinu sakhi aja 
amar shyama vamshidhari, maṇi manchopari, kare lila rasaraja 

Oh sakhi! My dear girlfriend! What have I seen today? In a kadamba grove on the banks of the Yamuna, a beautiful blackish boy holding a long flute named Vamsi is seated upon a throne of jewels, performing His pastimes as the King of all transcendental mellows! 

mere to girdhar gopal dusaro na koi 
jako sar mor mukat mere pati wohi
 

There is none other than Giridhar Gopal for me 
Who wears the peacock feather on his turban, my husband 

sugita nartane, saba sakh gaṇe, tushiche yugala dhane 
takhon krishna lila heri, prakrti sundari, vistariche shobha vane 

By singing sweet songs and by dancing nicely, all the Gopis satisfy the treasured Divine Couple. Thus I am beholding Krsna’s pastimes with His beautiful female consorts expanding throughout the splendorous forest. 

ghare na jaiba, vane praveshiba, o lila rasera tare 
ami tyaji kula laj, bhaja vrajaraja, vinoda minati kare 

For the sake of the mellows of such pastimes, I will not go to my home, but I will instead enter into the forest. Renouncing all shyness due to fear of family members, just worship the Lord of Vraja. This is the humble submission of Bhaktivinoda. 

[Song includes excerpts from Ami Jamuna Puline and the Mirabai bhajan Mere To Giridhar Gopal]

5. Mayapur Dawn (Like a River to the Sea) by Jahnavi Harrison

nava gaura-varaḿ nava-puṣpa-śaraḿ
nava-bhāva-dharaḿ nava-lāsya-param
nava-hāsya-karaḿ nava-hema-varaḿ
praṇamāmi śacī-suta-gaura-varam

TRANSLATION
1) His complexion is the hue of fresh cream tinged with kunkum. He is the ever-fresh Cupid who shoots arrows of newly blossoming flowers. He bears newer and newer moods of emotional ecstasies. He is fond of performing novel dances. He makes ever-new jokes that cause much laughter. His brilliant luster is like freshly cast gold. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci.

verse
Shri Krishna, your pure charisma / your flute playing is so intoxicating
singing your song down in Vrindavan / enchanting the Gopi’s and all your devotees
filling the hearts of all the Bhakti yogis / in a trance you dance the divine romance
of the Rasa Lila with Radha Rani / in the Bhagavad Gita you teach us Bhakti
your divine past times are so sublime / they open the heart and reassure the mind
providing us shelter when the monsoon lingers / balancing a mountain on the tip
of your finger / your the sweet butter thief named baby Gopala / the lover of Radha
& the killer of Kamsa / to you dark blue just like the ocean / I offer my devotion
through all of my emotions

chorus
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
