Disappearance Day of Srila Narottama Dasa Thakura
By Narahari dasa
Translated by Dravida Das
THE FIRST VILASA
Oh! Supreme Lord Visvambhara, You are the husband of the goddess offortune,
and my eternal friend. Only You are capable of distributing thewealth of love
of Godhead. You are known as kindhearted to those who depend uponYou,
therefore, oh Lord, please shower You kindness upon me.
I worship Sri Lokanatha Prabhu, who is fully surrendered to thelotus feet of
Sri Sri Radha Vinode. He is the life of the devotees, and aconfidential
associate of Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
I worship Narottama dasa Thakura, who is especially dear to LordGauranga. Like
a honey bee anxious for the nectar, he hovers at the lotusfeet of Srila
Lokanatha, absorbed in love for Radha Krsna.
I worship the disciples of Srila Narottama Prabhu who are rich ingood qualities
and are able to destroy all misfortune and misery.
For the pleasure of the Vaisnavas and to fulfill my own ardentdesires, I am
writing this book Narottama Vilasa which briefly describes theglories of Srila
Narottama dasa Thakura.
