(The Appearance Day of Sri Gaurasundara)

(This Bengali bhajana was composed by His Divine Grace Śrīla Bhakti Rakṣaka Śrīdhara Deva Gosvāmī Mahārāja commemorating the divine appearance of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu).

aruṇa vasane, sonara sūraja
udiche kena re āja
vasanta suṣamā, ujāri āpanā
ḍhāle kena jaga-mājha

On this day, why has the Golden Sun (Śrī Gaurāṅga) arisen wearing red cloth? Why has He descended to the earth in the middle of Spring when everything seems so beautiful and amazing?

(2)
taru gulma-latā, apūrva baratā
bahe kena phale phule
bhṛṅga o vihaṅge, kena hena raṅge
saṅgita taraṅga tule

Why are all the trees, shrubs and creepers full of fruits and flowers? Why do the birds and bees sing their songs with such bliss?

sa devaś caitanyākṛtir atitarāḿ naḥ kṛpayatu

By performing the sacrifice of congregational chanting of the holy name, scholars in the age of Kali worship Lord Krsna, who is now non-blackish because of the great upsurge of feelings of Srimati Radharani. He is the only worshipable Deity for the paramahamsas, who have attained the highest stage of the fourth order (sannyasa). May that Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Caitanya, show us His great causeless mercy.
