This is a loving musical tribute to my most beloved Spiritual Masters, Gurupada Padma Jagat Guru, IPBYS Founder Acarya, HDG Nityalila Pravista Om Visnupada 108 Sri Srimad Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja Gurudeva and Gurupada Padma, Jagat Guru, ISKCON Founder Acarya, HDG Nityalila Pravista Om Visnupada 108 Sri Srimad Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and our whole Guru Varga !!!
This song is based on a conversation Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu had with Sri Ramananda Raya :
In Sri Caitanya Caritamrta, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu asked Srila Raya Ramananda: duhkha-madhye kona duhkha haya gurutara? krsna-bhakta-viraha vina duhkha nahi dekhi para[Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu asked, “Of all kinds of distress, what is the most painful?”Sri Ramananda Raya replied, “Apart from separation from the devotee of Krsna, I know of no unbearable unhappiness.” (Madhya 8.248)]Sri Mahaprabhu asked Sri Raya Ramananda, “What is the worst type of suffering?” Sri Ramananda Raya replied, “Vaisnava-viraha.” Para means the highest or greatest. The greatest or most grievous suffering is Vaisnava-viraha, separation from pure Vaisnavas. “SEPARATION SONG” (LOSING YOU) Words and Music by : Jayanta das
We’ll never lose our pastimes with you
Your Lotus Feet were so soft to our touch
If we live through this, we’ll never forget your smile
Your morning walks were unforgettable !
Oh, how we’ve cried when you left us !
No greater pain in this world than losing you , our “Heart” !
Now, there’s no one to chastise us !
Nor pat us on the head when we do right !
Your Vani and glories will live forever !
Darshan of you singing the Holy Names
You held back tears when choked with prema
It is hard to put in words about the loss we feel
The emptiness is so unbearable !
You are the light in our darkness !
No greater pain in this world than losing you, our “Soul” !
Now, we know what you’ve mean to us !
Kind and merciful, you’ve gained our love and trust !
Your Vani and glories will live forever !
***** HARE KRSNA MAHA MANTRA *****
We must live through this, forever in your debt !
To carry on your mission upon our heads !
Such intense separation !
No greater pain in this world than losing you, our “Life” !
Such intense separation !
There’s no greater pain in this world than losing you , our “Love” !
Oh, Gurudeva !!!
