    ceto-darpana-marjanam bhava-maha--davagni-nirvapanam
    shreyah-kairava-chandrika-vitaranam vidya-vadhu-jivanam
    anandambudhi-vardhanam prati-padam purnamritaswadanam
    sarvatma-snapanam param vijayate sri-krishna-sankirtanam

    Glory to the Sri Krishna Sankirtana, which cleanses the heart of all the dust accumulated for years and extinguishes the fire of conditional life, of repeated birth and death. This sankirtana movement is the prime benediction for humanity at large because it spreads the rays of the benediction moon. It is the life of all transcendental knowledge. It increases the ocean of transcendental bliss, and it enables us to fully taste the nectar for which we are always anxious.

    namnam akari bahudha nija-sarva-shaktis
    tatrarpita niyamitah smarane na kalah
    etadrishi tava kripa bhagavan mamapi
    durdaivam idrisham ihajani nanuragaha

    O my Lord, Your holy name alone can render all benediction to living beings, and thus You have hundreds and millions of names like Krishna and Govinda. In these transcendental names You have invested all Your transcendental energies. There are not even hard and fast rules for chanting these names. O my Lord, out of kindness You enable us to easily approach You by Your holy names, but I am so unfortunate that I have no attraction for them.

    trinad api sunichena
    taror api sahishnuna
    amanina manadena
    kirtaniyah sada harih

    One should chant the holy name of the Lord in a humble state of mind, thinking oneself lower than the straw in the street; one should be more tolerant than a tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige and should be ready to offer all respect to others. In such a state of mind one can chant the holy name of the Lord constantly.

    Text 4
    na dhanam na janam na sundarim
    kavitam va jagad-isha kamaye
    mama janmani janmanishvare
    bhavatad bhaktir ahaituki twayi

    O almighty Lord, I have no desire to accumulate wealth, nor do I desire beautiful women, nor do I want any number of followers. I only want Your causeless devotional service birth after birth.

    ayi nanda-tanuja kinkaram
    patitam mam vishame bhavambudhau
    kripaya tava pada-pankaja-
    sthita-dhuli-sadrisham vichintaya

    O son of Maharaja Nanda [Krishna], I am Your eternal servitor, yet somehow or other I have fallen into the ocean of birth and death. Please pick me up from this ocean of death and place me as one of the atoms at Your lotus feet.

    Text 6
    nayanam galad-ashru-dharaya
    vadanam gadgada-ruddhaya gira
    pulakair nichitam vapuh kada
    tava nama-grahane bhavishyati

    O my Lord, when will my eyes be decorated with tears of love flowing constantly when I chant Your holy name? When will my voice choke up, and when will the hairs of my body stand on end at the recitation of Your name?

    Text 7
    yugayitam nimeshena
    chakshusha pravrishayitam
    shunyayitam jagat sarvam
    govinda-virahena me

    O Govinda! Feeling Your separation, I am considering a moment to be like twelve years or more. Tears are flowing from my eyes like torrents of rain, and I am feeling all vacant in the world in Your absence.

    ashlishya va pada-ratam pinashtu mam
    adarshanan marma-hatam karotu va
    yatha tatha va vidadhatu lampato
    mat-prana-nathas tu sa eva naparah

    I know no one but Krishna as my Lord, and He shall remain so even if He handles me roughly by His embrace or makes me brokenhearted by not being present before me. He is completely free to do anything and everything, for He is always my worshipful Lord unconditionally.

  2. There is a song called "Holy name" by Cyril wohler - a Hare Krsna Bhakta. He has created the song on the lines of EDM to reach a larger audience. At the end of the song I heard him saying the first stanza here. Thanks for the lyrics! And take a look at that song if possible
  3. Govinda jay jay, Gopala jay jay!
