Shri Saci-nandana-vijayastaka

Eight Prayers Describing the Glories of the Son of Saci

1

gadadhara yada parah sa kila ksacanalokito

maya shrita-gayadhavana madhura-murtir ekas tada

navambuda iva bruvan dhrta-navambudo netrayor

luthan bhuvi niruddha-vag vijayate saci-nandanah

One day, Gadadhara Pandita heard the following words: O Gadadhara! I saw the most extraordinary person on the road to Gaya.  His form was very handsome, and He roared just like a thundercloud.  His eyes rained tears as if they had become rain clouds, and He rolled about on the ground, His voice choked up in the ecstasy of love of God. All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

2

alaksita-carim harity-udita-matratah kam dasam

asav ati-budhagranir atula-kampa-sampadikam

vrajann ahaha modte na punar atra sastresv iti

sva-sisya-gana-vestito vijayate saci-nandanah

Oh, what kind of extraordinary state has He attained?  Although He is the leader of the scholars, He no longer delights in study.  When He holds class, surrounded by his pupils, if He hears the sound “Hari”, He begins to tremble.  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

3

haha kim idam ucyate patha pathatra krishnam muhur

vina tam iha sadhutam dadhati kim buddha dhatavah

prasiddha iha varna-sanghatita-samyag-amnayakah

sva-namni yad iti bruvan vijayate saci-nandanah

Once during class Lord Chaitanya interrupted a pupil and asked,‘What are you saying?  Instead of these verbs, you should constantly repeat the name of Krishna, the most famous of all worlds according to the Vedas.  O students, without Krishna, what benefit can verbs give?’  All glories to Lord Chaitanya, the son of Saci-devi, who chants His own holy name in that way.

4

navambuja-dale yad-iksana-savarnata-dirghate

sada sva-hrdi bhavyatam sapadi sadhyatam tat-padam

sa pathayati vismitan smita-mukhah sva-sisyan iti

prati-prakaranam prabhur vijayate saci-nandanah

No matter what the particular topic of study was, He would smile and instruct His astonished grammar students in this way: ‘O students, please place the two large eyes of Shri Krishna, which are as beautiful as two lotus petals, within your hearts, and please place His lotus feet within your hearts in the same way.’  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

5

kva yani karavani kim kva nu maya harir labhyatam

tam udisatu kah sakhe kathaya kah prapadyeta mam

iti dravati ghurnate kalita-bhakta-kanthah suca

sa murchayati mataram vijayate saci-nandanah

At other times, the Lord would say, ‘O friend, where shall I go, and what shall I do to attain Lord Hari?’ Who will show Him to Me?  Please tell me who will help me in this way’. Speaking thus, the Lord ran here and there and rolled about on the ground.  Their throats filled with grief, the stricken devotees called out to Him. In this way the Lord caused His mother Saci-devi, to faint.  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

6

smararbuda-durapaya tanu-ruci-chata-cchayaya

tamah kali-tama-krtam nikhilam eva nirmulayan

nrnam nayana-saubhagam divi-sadam mukhais tarayan

lasann adhi-dharah prabhur vijayate saci-nandanah

The reflection of the splendid beauty of the Lord is not attainable even by millions of Cupids, and with that splendour the Lord uproots the darkness of the ignorance of the age of Kali. Descending with the principal demigods, the Lord delighted the eyes of the residents of this earth planet.  All glories to that effulgent Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

7

ayam kanaka-bhudharah pranaya-ratnam uccaih kiran

krpaturataya vrajan abhavad atra visvambharah

yad-aksi-patha-sancarat-suradhuni-pravahair nijam

param ca jagad ardayan vijayate saci-nandanah

He is like a golden mountain that scatters jewels of pure love of God.  Because of His great mercy He wandered on this earth planet.  That Lord, known as Visvambhara, the maintainer of the universe, inundated His own universe with the currents of the Ganges river of tears of love of Godhead flowing from His eyes.  All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.

8

gato ‘smi mathuram mama priyatama visakha-sakhi

gata nu bata kam dasam vada katham nu vedani tam

itiva sa ni jecchaya vraja-pateh sutah prapitas

tadiya-rasa-carvanam vijayate saci-nandanah

Lord Krishna said to Uddhava: ‘What is the condition of Shrimati Radharani now that I have come to Mathura? Please tell me so that I may understand.’  In order to fulfil His own desire, Lord Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, has descended as Lord Chaitanya to taste the mellows of His own devotional service

9

idam pathati yo ‘stakam guna-nidhe saci-nandana

prabho tava padambuje sphurad-amanda-visrambhavan

tam ujjvala-matim nija-pranaya-rupa-varganugam

vidhaya nija-dhamani drutam uri-kurusva svayam

O Lord, O son of Saci-devi, O ocean of transcendental qualities, please place in Your abode all who read these eight verses and are full of faith in Your lotus feet.  Please accept those readers whose intelligence is pure and who follow in the footsteps of the great devotees headed by Shrila Rupa Govami, who are full of great love for You.

Katha Upanisad

Katha Upanisad

The seer (Atman, Self) is not born, nor does he die,

He does not originate from anybody, nor does he become anybody,

Eternal, ancient one, he remains eternal,

he is not killed, even though the body is killed.

If the killer thinks that he kills,

if the killed thinks that he is killed,

they do not understand;

for this one does not kill, nor is that one killed.

The Self (Atman), smaller than small, greater than…
