Such a nice payar this is! The symptoms and the potency of a Gaudiya Vaishnava!

I remember seeing this somewhere in Jagatji's postings, but I couldn't locate it. I would like to get that link and also like to know where this is quoted from.

It's from the poetry of Gopinath Basak.

See Jagatji's translation, poem "Who is a Gaudiya Vaishnava?"

Thanks for the link, Kalkidasji, and thanks to Jagatji who made these beautiful poems available to the Vaishnava community with his nice and lucid translations. God bless him.

They really are some of the sweetest delicacies around. Let's post that one in:

Who is a Gaudiya Vaishnava?

bAhire se AlA bholA antare hRdaya galA
mukhe sadA kRSNa bolA cokhe azru mAlA
dInatAya se mATir mAnuS niSThAte acalA
kRSNa dite kRSNa nite dhare zakti sob
alaukika lokavat gauDIya vaiSNob

He looks artless, guileless
but inside his heart is melting;
the name of Krishna is always on his tongue
a garland of tears in his eyes.
In humility though forbearing,
his faith unswerving as a mountain.

To give or take Krishna,
is the power in his hands.
He looks like anyone,
but he is beyond the world.
That is a Gaudiya Vaishnava.

sabAra nIce paRe thAke sabAike se sevya dekhe
sabAra iSTa miSTa bhAkhe kRSNa tattva j˝Ane
sabAi debA sabAr sevA kRSNa adhiSThAne
nikhila bheda samanvayera mUrti savaibhava
tomAra preme goRA se gauDIya vaiSNava

He humbly takes the lowest place,
sees everyone as someone to serve;
to all he speaks what is pleasing and sweet,
connected to the truth of Krishna;
he knows that Krishna dwells in every soul
and so he gives to all and serves all.

All differences are resolved in him,
this is the glory he incarnates.
Formed through and through by Your love--
that is a Gaudiya Vaishnava.

sarvottama sadainya vinaya nirahaM suzAnti nilaya
nitAi graha grasta hRdaya sadaya vizva jIve
tomAra icchAya cale bale tomAra icchAya seve
tomAra gaNa sange se pAya prema rasArNava
tomAra sRSTa hRSTa iSTa gauDIya vaiSNava

He is the best of all, yet he makes no claims.
He is without ego, the house of blissful peace.
He is under the astral influence of Nitai,
and so merciful to all souls in the universe.
He walks and talks according to Your desire,
according to Your desire, he serves.

When in the company of those who are Yours,
he finds an ocean of relish.
Your personal creation, Your own ecstatic object of worship --
that is a Gaudiya Vaishnava.

kaivalyake narka mAne svargake khapuSpa jAne
indriya kRSNa sevane vizva-pUrNa sukhe
daivatAdi nAhi gaNe tomAra kRponmukhe
tomAra-i audArya vIrya AtmA akaitava
tomAra kRpA mUrtimanta gauDIya vaiSNava

He takes nondualistic liberation to be hell
and heaven to be a flower in the sky;
his senses are all engaged in Krishna's service
and so he sees the world as a place of joy;
he pays no attention to other gods,
turned only toward the search for Your mercy;

He is filled with the heroism of Your munificence;
his heart is without deception;
the incarnation of Your blessings --
that is the Gaudiya Vaishnava.

saMsAre se anAsakta bAhya dehe sAdhaka bhakta
antare se anurakta rAgAnugA lobhe
gaurotsave vrajera bhAve sadA iSTa seve
keza-zeSa-sudurlabha gopIra anubhava
acintya prabhAvI se gauDIya vaiSNava

Though detached from the world;
externally, he carries on like a sadhaka bhakta;
yet within he seethes with rAgAnugA greed.
Festive in the mood of Gauranga
he always serves the object of his love:

the mood of the gopis,
so rare for even Brahma, Vishnu and Ananta.
Of incomprehensible divine power,
that is the Gaudiya Vaishnava.

It has to be "kaivalyake narak mAne...."

That's a typo.
