Appearance Day of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Today we honor the Appearance Day of one of our great spiritual fathers; Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, with this famous song.

Jiv Jago Jiv Jago
Official Name: Arunodaya Kirtana Song 2
By Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

jīv jāgo, jīv jāgo, gauracānda bole
kota nidrā jāo māyā-piśācīra kole

1) Lord Gaurānga is calling, “Wake up, sleeping souls! Wake up, sleeping souls! How long will you sleep in the lap of the witch called Māyā?

bhajibo boliyā ese saḿsāra-bhitare
bhuliyā rohile tumi avidyāra bhare

2) You have forgotten the way of devotional service and are lost in the world of birth and death.

tomāre loite āmi hoinu avatāra
āmi binā bandhu āra ke āche tomāra

3) I have descended just to save you; other than Myself you have no friend in this world.

enechi auṣadhi māyā nāśibāro lāgi’
hari-nāma mahā-mantra lao tumi māgi’

4) I have brought the medicine that will wipe out the disease of illusion from which you are suffering. Take this mahā-mantra-Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, Hare Hare/Hare Rāma, Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma, Hare Hare.”

bhakativinoda prabhu-caraṇe pariyā
sei hari-nāma-mantra loilo māgiyā

5) Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Thākura says: “I fall at the Lord’s feet, having taken this mahā-mantra.”
