Purport to Narada Muni Bajay Vina - From Gītāvalī by Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura - Gold Series CD 3 Track 6
- nāma amani, udita haya,
This is a song sung by Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura. The purport of the song is that Nārada Muni, the great soul, says, he's playing on his string instrument called vīṇā. Vīṇā is a string instrument carried by Nārada Muni. So he is playing on the instrument as vibrating the sound rādhikā-ramaṇa. Kṛṣṇa's another name is Rādhika-Ramaṇa. So as soon as he stroke on the string, immediately all the devotees began to respond him, and it becomes a very beautiful vibration. Amiya dhārā variṣe ghana. And when the singing was going on with the string instrument, it appeared that there is a shower of nectarean, and all the devotees then in ecstasy they were dancing to the fullest extent of their satisfaction. Then, while they were dancing, it appeared that they became intoxicated by drinking the beverage called mādhurī pūra. And as one becomes mad almost by drinking, similarly, in ecstasy, all the devotees they became mad. And some of them were crying, and some of them were dancing, and some of them, although they could not dance publicly, within their heart they were dancing. In this way, Lord Śiva immediately embraced Nārada Muni, and he began to talk in ecstatic voice. And seeing Lord Śiva, he's dancing with Nārada Muni, Lord Brahmā also joined, and he began to say, "All of you, kindly chant haribol, haribol!" In this way, gradually the king of heaven, Indra, he also joined with great satisfaction and began to dance and chant, "hari hari bol."
In this way, by the influence of transcendental vibration of the holy name of God, the whole universe became ecstatic, and Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura says, "And the whole universe became ecstatic. Then my desire was satisfied and I therefore pray unto the lotus feet of Rūpa Gosvāmī that let this chanting of hari-nāma go on nicely like this."
