bhaja gaurāńga kaha gaurāńga laha gaurāńgera nāma re
je jan gaurāńga bhaje, sei (hoy) āmāra prāṇa re

Worship Lord Gauranga! Chant Gauranga! Speak about Lord Gauranga only! The one who worships Lord Gauranga is indeed my life and soul.
gaurāńga boliyā du’ bāhu tuliyā nāciyā nāciyā beḍāo re

Chanting Gauranga, go out with your arms raised dancing and dancing.
gāurāńga bhajile gaurāńga japile hoy duḥkhera abasāna re

By chanting Gauranga and worshipping Him, one’s miseries will end.

All the Gaudiya Vaishnavas consider Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the deliverer of this fallen age of Kali and the munificent Lord who freely distributed the most sublime unnat ujvala rasa which had never before been given to anyone, as their very life and soul. Knowing nothing and no one but Sachinandana Gaurahari, they glorify his transcendental names, forms, qualities and pastimes in the association of other Vaishnavas and in this way experience unsurpassed sweet transcendental bliss. They are forever engaged in worshipping, chanting and singing the glories of Gaurahari and they preach and request others to do so as well. They are to such an extent sold out to the sweetness of Gaurahari that if anyone, regardless of their material position, chants the holy names of Gaurahari, they consider that devotee to be their very life and soul. Chanting Gauranga, they go out with their arms raised in ecstasy and dancing in complete bliss. Indeed by doing so all one’s miseries are sure to come to an end and the bliss of Gaur naam shall overtake one.

Let us all, therefore, chant Gauranga! Hearing us sing the names of Gaurahari, all the exalted devotees of the Lord shall be pleased with us and bestow upon us their mercy. Mercy which shall purify our heart of the material disease. Mercy that shall bestow upon us the pure names of the Lord. Mercy that shall deliver us to the lotus feet of Gaurahari and make us experience the nectar of devotional service to his divine lotus feet.
