Prasadam Prayers

mahā-prasāde govinde
nāma-brahmaṇi vaiṣṇave
svalpa-puṇyavatāḿ rājan
viśvāso naiva jāyate

(O King, for those who have amassed very few pious activities, their faith in maha-prasada, in Sri Govinda, in the Holy Name, and in the Vaisnava is never born.)

 sarira avidya-jal, jadendriya tahe kal
 jive phele vishaya-sagare
 ta’ra madhye jihva ati-, lobhamay sudurmati,
 ta’ke jeta kathina samsare
 krishna bada dayamay, karibare jihva jay,
 sva-prasadanna dila bhai
 sei annamrita pao, radha-krishna-guna gao,
 preme dako chaitanya-nitai

(O Lord, this material body is a lump of ignorance, and the senses are a network of paths to death. Somehow, we have fallen into this ocean of material sense enjoyment, and of all the senses the tongue is most voracious and uncontrollable; it is very difficult to conquer the tongue in this world. But You, dear Krishna, are very kind to us and have given us such nice prasadam, just to control the tongue. Now we take thisprasadam to our full satisfaction and glorify Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha-Krishna, and in love call for the help of Lord Chaitanya and Lord Nityananda.)
