Dalalera-Gita
by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
from the book Sri Nityananda Caritamrta

1) boro sukher khabor gai
surabhi-kunjete namera hatta khule'che (khoda nitai)

I am singing news of happy holy tidings. Nitai has opened a market-place of the holy name in Surabhi-kunja.

2) boro mojara kotha taya
sradddha-mulye suddha-nama sei hatete bikaya

He is selling the pure holy name in that market-place for the price of only one's faith.

3) jata bhakta-brnda basi'
adhikari dekhe' nama becche daro kasi

Lord Nityananda, seeing all the devotees becoming attracted, is bargaining with them and selling them the holy name.

4) jadi nama kinbe, bhai
amara sange calo, mahajanera kache jai

O brother, if you want the holy name then come with me. Come to that great soul, Nityananda.

5) tumi kinbe krsna-nama
dasturi loibo ami, purna ha'be kama

You'll get the name of Krsna. I'll take my commission and all our desires will be fulfilled.

6) boro dayala nityananda
sradddha-matra lo'ye den parama-ananda

Lord Nityinanda is very merciful. Taking only one's faith, He gives the highest ecstasy.

7) ek-bar dekhle cakhe jala
'gaura' bole' nitai den sakala sambala

If He sees only once tears in the eyes while chanting the name Gaura, then He gives everything to that person.

8) den suddha krsna-siksa
jati, dhana, bidya, bala na kore apekha

He gives the pure teachings of Krsna to everyone not caring their birth, wealth, knowledge, or strength.

9) amani chare maya-jala
grhe thako, vane thako, na thake janjal

Now, giving up the illusory snare of Maya, either remain in household life or in the forest as a sannyasi, no more troubles remain.

10) ara naiko kalir bhoy
acandale den nama, nitai doya-moya

There is no more fear of the age of Kali. The merciful Nitai gives the holy name to even the candalas.

11) bhaktivinoda daki'koy
nitai-carana bina ara nahi asraya

Bhaktivinoda calls out, "Except for the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda, there is no other shelter!"
