To learn: āsraya kariyā bando srī guru carana

Hare Krsna! 

Our Dearmost Srila Gurudev asked us to learn this wonderful song.

Listen Srila Gurudev Himself singing HERE !

Asraya Koriya Bando Sri Guru Carana
Sanatana Dasa

(1)
āsraya kariyā bando srī guru carana
jāhā haite mile bhāi krsna-prema dhana

(2)
jīvera nistāra lāgi nanda-suta hari
bhuvane prakāsa hana guru-rūpa dhari

(3)
mahimāya guru krsna eka kari jāna
guru ājnā hrde saba satya kari māna

(4)
satya-jnāne guru vākye jāhāra visvāsa
avasya tāhāra haya vrajabhume vāsa

(5)
jāra prati gurudeva hana parasanna
kona vighne seha nāhi haya avasanna

(6)
krsna rusta ha'le guru rākhibāre pāre
guru rusta ha'le krsna rākhibāre nāre

(7)
guru mātā guru pitā guru hana pati
guru vinā e samsāre nāhi āra gati

(8)
guruke manusya-jnāna nā kara kakhana
guru-nindā kabhu karne nā kara sravana

(9)
guru nindukera mukha kabhu nā heribe
yathā haya guru-nindā tathā nā jāibe

(10)
gurura vikriyā yadi dekhaha kakhana
tathāpi avajnā nāhi kara kadācana

(11)
guru-pādapadme rahe jāra nisthā bhakti
jagat tārite sei dhare mahāsakti

(12)
hena guru pādapadma karaha vandanā
yāhā haite ghuce bhāi sakala yantranā

(13)
guru pādapadma nitya ye kare vandana
sire dhari vandi āmi tāhāra carana

(14)
sri guru caranapadma hrde kari āsa
sri guru vandanā kare sanātana dāsa

TRANSLATION

1) Having sought refuge, I bow at Sri guru's feet, from which, O brother, one gains the wealth of Krsna-prema.

2) To redeem the jivas Nanda's son Hari appears in the world in the likeness of Sri guru.

3) Guru and Krsna are glorified as one and so the guru's order should always be taken to heart, knowing it is satya.

4) Whoever has deep faith in the guru's utterances as satya-jnana certainly dwells in Vrajabhumi.

5) Whoever courts Sri gurudeva's pleasure, no impediment can cause him harm.

6) If Krsna gets angry Sri guru can protect, but if guru gets angry Krsna will neglect.

7) Guru is mother, guru is father, guru is lord and master. Without Sri guru there is no recourse in this samsara.

8) Never look upon Sri guru as a worldly man and never lend your ears to guru-ninda (offense).

9) Never even look in the face of them that speak ill of guru and avoid the place where guru ninda (offense) is heard.

10) Even if you see some misconduct in Sri guru, never disregard him for it.

11) One who thus cleaves to guru's lotus-feet with firm devotion, carries with him the great power to deliver the world.

12) Bow to such a guru's lotus-feet, O brother, thereby all afflictions cease.

13) Whoever bows to Sri guru's lotus-feet every day, taking his feet upon my head I salute him.


14) Hoping to retain guru's lotus-feet within his heart, Sanatan das makes guru vandana (pray).
