Sri Rupa Manjari Pada

The Feet of Sri Rupa Manjari

(from Prarthana)


sri-rupa-manjari-pada, sei mora sampada,
sei mor bhajana-pujana


sei mora prana-dhana, sei mora abharana,
sei mor jivanera jivana


sei mora rasa-nidhi, sei mora vancha-siddhi,
sei mor vedera dharama


sei brata, sei tapa, sei mora mantra-japa,
sei mor dharama-karama


anukula habe vidhi, se-pade hoibe siddhi,
nirakhibo e dui nayane


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


The lotus feet of Sri Rupa Manjari are my treasure, my devotional service, and my object of worship.

They give my life meaning, and they are the life of my life.

They are the perfection of rasa, and they are perfection worthy of attainment. They are the very law of the
Vedlc scriptures for me.

They are the meaning of all my fasts and penances and my silent utterings of my mantras. They are the basis
of religion and activities.

By the purifying process of favorable devotional service one will attain perfection and with these two eyes
be able to see.

His transcendental form is shining like moonlight in my heart, and my heart therefore shines and
reciprocates. In other words, the ordinary moon lights up the night, and its shine illuminates other objects; but
the moon of the effulgence of the form of Sri Rupa Manjari shines into the heart and makes the heart also
shine back to the spiritual sky. This moon shines not only in the nighttime, but day and night.

Your absence from my vision is like a dose of strong poison, and I will suffer till the end of my life.

Narottama dasa Thakura says: "Please give me your mercy and the shade of your lotus feet."
