This is a prayer that I recently read in a prayer book of Iskcon.
Originally written by Bhaktivinod Thakur in Sarangati.
First in Bengali and next is its English translation.
kripa-bindu diya, koro’ ei dase,
trinapekha ati hina
sakala sahane, bala diya koro’,
sakale sammana korite sakati,
deho’ natha! jathajatha
tabe to’ gaibo, hari-nama-sukhe,
aparadha ha ’be hata
kabe heno kripa, labhiya e jana,
kritartha hoibe, natha!
sakti-buddhi-hina, ami ati dina,
koro’ more atma-satha
jogyata-vicare, kichu nahi pai,
karuna na hoile, kandiya kandiya,
prana na rakhibo ara
1) Gurudeva, give to this servant just one drop of mercy. I am lower than a blade of grass. Give me all help. Give me strength. Let me be as you are, without desires or aspirations.
2) I offer you all respects, for thus I may have the energy to know you correctly. Then, by chanting the holy name in great ecstasy, all my offenses will cease.
3) O Lord and Master! When will such mercy fall to this one who is weak and devoid of intelligence? Allow me to be with you.
4) If you examine me, you will find no qualities. Your mercy is all that I am made of. If you are not merciful unto me, I can only weep, and I will not be able to maintain my life.
