narada muni, bajay vina ‘radhika-ramana’-name
nama amani, udita haya, bhakata-gita-same
amiya-dhara, barrise ghana, sravana-yugale giya
bhakata jana, saghane nace, bhoriya apana hiya
madhuri-pura, asava pashi, mataya jagata-jane
keho va kande, keho va nace, keho mate mane mane
pancha-vadana, narade dhori’, premera saghana rol
kamalasana, naciya bole, ‘bolo bolo hari bolo’
sahasranana, parama-sukhe, ‘hari hari’ boli’ gaya
nama-prabhave, matilo visva, nama-rasa sabe paya
shri-krsna-nama, rasane sphuri’, pura’lo amar asha
shri-rupa-pade, yacaye iha, bhakativinoda-dasa
When the great soul Narada Muni plays his vina, the holy name, Radhika-ramana descends and immediately appears amidst the kirtan of the Lord’s devotees.
Like a monsoon cloud, the holy name showers nectar in their ears. All the devotees, due to great ecstasy, repeatedly dance to their hearts content.
All the people of the universe become maddened upon entering this intoxicating shower of nectar. Some people cry, some dance and others become fully intoxicated within their minds.
Lord Siva, embracing Narada Muni, repeatedly makes loud screams of ecstatic joy, and Lord Brahma, dancing very ecstatically, says, “All of you kindly chant, Haribol! Haribol!”
In great happiness the thousand-faced Ananta Sesa chants “Hari! Hari!” By the influence of the transcendental vibration of the holy name, the whole universe becomes ecstatically maddened and everyone tastes the mellows of the holy name.
Thakura Bhaktivinoda, the humble servant of the Lord says, “The holy name of Krishna has fulfilled all my desires by vibrating on everyone’s tongue.” Bhaktivinoda therefore prays at the feet of Sri Rupa Goswami that the chanting of harinam may continue like this always.
