Mantra: Jiv Jago
jiv jago, jiv jago, gauracanda bole
kota nidra jao maya pisacira kole
bhajibo boliya ese samsara- bhitare
bhuliya rohile tumi avidyara bhare
tomare loite ami hoinu avatara
ami bina bandhu ara ke ache tomara
enechi ausadhi maya nasibaro lagi
hari nama maha mantra lao tumi magi
bhaktivinoda prabhu carane pariya
sei hari nama mantra loilo magiya
Lord Gauranga is calling, "Wake up, sleeping souls! How long will you sleep in the lap of the witch called Maya? You were born in this world to worship the Lord, but you have forgotten.
I have descended just to save you. Other than Me, you have no true friend in this world.
I bring with me the medicine to wipe out the disease of illusion: the Maha Mantra of the Holy Names. Chant these names right away.
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur says, "I fall at the Lord's feet, begging Him to give me the Maha Mantra."
