I was born in the darkest ignorance, and my spiritual master opened my eyes with the torch of knowledge. I offer my respectful obeisances unto him.
ājānu-lambita-bhujau kanakāvadātau saṅkīrtanaika-pitarau kamalāyatākṣau viśvambharau dvija-varau yuga-dharma-pālau vande jagat priya-karau karuṇāvatārau I pay my homage unto the most merciful Lords Śrī Vishvambara (Śrī Krsna Caitanya) and Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu, whose long arms extend to Their knees, whose complexion are more shining then gold. They inaugurated the sankirtana movement. Their eyes remind me of the petals of lotus flowers. Although they are the source of the entire universe, They appear in respected brahmanas families to protect the religious principles for this era and to bestow the topmost happiness to all the living souls of this world.
vande śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya- nityānandau sahoditau gauḍodaye puṣpavantau citrau śan-dau tamo-nudau I offer my respectful obeisances unto Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya and Lord Nityānanda, who are like the sun and moon. They have arisen simultaneously on the horizon of Gauḍa to dissipate the darkness of ignorance and thus wonderfully bestow benediction upon all.
vande 'ham sri rama krsnau abhaya caranau sakhau sukhadau paramanandau sundaru subalau priyau I worship Sri Sri Rama Krsna the two friends who feet bestow fearlessness, who give happiness, who are full of the greatest bliss, who are beautiful and who are dear to Subala. If you sing "carana" instead of "caranau" it translates--I worship Sri Sri Rama Krsna, the friends of Srila Prabhupada who give happiness.
