Spelling of Prayers to the Six Gosvamis

Los Angeles, December 26, 1968
Prabhupada: K-r-i-s-h-n-o-t, krsnot. Then next word, kirtana, k-i-r-t-a-n-a. Krsnotkirtana-gana, g-a-n-a. This "a" is strong "a", strong "a." Gana. Strong "a" means "a" with hyphen. So I shall say, "strong 'a'." Krsnotkirtana-gana, g-strong a-n-a, gana. Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana, n-a-r-t-a-n-a. Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-para, p-a-r-a. Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau, premam, p-r-e-m-strong a-m-r-i-t-a, premamrtam, a-m-b-h-o, ambho, nidhi, n-i-d-h-i-h. Krsnotkirtana-nartana-parau premamrtambho-nidhi. (sings) Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau premamrtambho-nidhi. Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau premamrtambho-nidhi. The meaning: krsnotkirtena, "loudly chanting the holy name of Krsna," krsnotkirtana-gana, "in musical sound, in songs, with music," krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana, nartana means "dancing, chanting and dancing," parau, "always engaged," krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau premamrtambho-nidhi, "and dipped into the ocean of ecstatic love for Krsna." (sings) Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau premamrtambho-nidhi. Next line: dhira, d-h-i-r-a, strong a, dhira. Dhira, d-h-i-r-a. One is dhira, another is dhira. Dhiradhira-jana, j-a-n-a, jana. Dhiradhira-jana. Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau premamrtambho-nidhi dhiradhira-jana-priyau. P-r-i-y-a-u. Dhiradhira-jana-priyau priyakarau, p-r-i-y-a-k-a-r-a-u, priyakarau. Dhiradhira-jana-priyau priyakarau nirmatsarau, n-i-r-m-a-t-s-a-r-o-u, nirmatsarau, pujitau, p-u-j-a-t-o-u. So second line is dhira, "those who are gentle, sober," and adhira... Adhira means "those who are not gentle, ruffians." So they were, by chanting these songs of kirtana, where dhiradhira, "both to the gentle and to the ruffians," priyau, "dear, equally dear and popular to both classes of men," not that they were simply popular to the gentle class, but even the ruffian class also loved them. Dhiradhira-jana-priyau priyakarau. Priya-karau means they were doing things which is very pleasant to everyone. Nirmatsarau. Nirmatsarau means without any enviousness, no discrimination, that "Krsnotkirtana or the songs, sankirtana, shall be given to the gentle class of men, not to the ruffians." No. They were equally kind and merciful, without any enviousness. Priya-karau nirmatsarau pujitau. Pujitau means worshipable, adored by everyone. (sings) Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau premamrtambho-nidhi dhiradhira-jana-priyau priya-karau nirmatsarau pujitau. Next line: sri-caitanya, s-r-i c-a-i-t-a-n-y-a, sri caitanya, krpa-bharau, k-r-i-p-a-b-h-a-r-o-u, krpa-bharau, sri-caitanya-krpa-bharau, bhuvi, b-h-u-v-i, bhuvi, bhuvau, b-h-u-v-o-u, bhuvi bhuvau. Sri-caitanya-krpa-bharau bhuvi bhuvo. Vande, v-a-n-d-e, r-u-p-a, rupa, sanatanau, s-a-n-a-t-a-n-o-u, sanatanau. Vande rupa-sanatanau raghu-yugau. R-a-g-u-h-y-u-g-o-u. Raghu-agau. Vande-rupa-sanatanau raghu-yugau sri-jiva, s-r-i j-i-v-a, sri-jiva, gopalakau, g-o-p-a-l-a-k-o-u. Sri-caitanya-krpa-bharau bhuvi bhuvo bharava-hantarakau, b-h-a-r-a-b-a, hantarakau, h-a-n-t-a-r-a-k-o-u. (sings) Sri-caitanya-krpa-bharau bhuvi bhuvo bharava-hantarakau vande rupa-santanau raghu-yugau sri-jiva-gopalakau. Krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau. So sri-caitanya-krpa-bharau: "They were so kind and merciful because they actually received the blessings and mercy of Lord Caitanya." Sri-caitanya-krpa-bharau bhuvi. Bhuvi means "on this world, on this earth." And bhuvo. Bhuvo means "on this earth," bhuvo, and bhuvi, "they became." Bhuvi bhuvo, bharava-hantarakau. Bhara, b-h-a-r-a, bhara means burden. Hantarakau, "just to take out the burdens." When people become too much sinful, the earth becomes overburdened, and just to make it lighter... If it becomes too much heavy, then it will fall down. So these great souls, they come to make it lighter. Bharava-hantarakau, vande rupa. "Oh, you are so kind." So therefore vande: "I offer my respectful obeisances," rupa, lord..., not lord. Sri Rupa Gosvami, Sanatana Gosvami and two Raghunatha Gosvamis. There are two Raghunathas. And Jiva Gosvami and Gopala Bhatta Gosvami. Vande-rupa-sanatanau raghu-yugau sri-jiva-gopalakau. (sings)
