antare nitāi bāhire nitāi nitāi jagatamaya
nāgara nitāi nāgari nitāi kathā ye kaya

Nitai is within and without. He is everywhere within this world. He is the lover and He is the sweetheart.

sādhana nitāi bhajana nitāi nitāi nayana
tārā daśadika maya nitāi sundara nitāi bhuvana bharā

Everyone says it. Nitai is my regulative principles, my object of worship, and the light of my eyes. Nitai is in all ten directions. In fact, He fills all the three worlds.

rādhāra mādhuri anańga mañjarī nitāi nitu se seve
koṭi śaśadhara vadana sundara sakhā sakhī baladeve

Nitai as Ananga Manjari eternally serves sweet Srimati Radhika. He is non-different from Baladeva, whose beautiful face resembles millions of moons and is surrounded by sakhas and sakhis. 

rādhāra bhagini śyāmasohāginī sava sakhīgaṇa prāṇa
jāńhāra lābari mandapa sājani śrī maṇi mandira nāma

The sister of Radharani, Ananga Manjari, is very dear to Sri Syama, and she is the life and soul of all the sakhis. She decorates the arena of the temple named Mani Mandira.

nitāi sundara yogapīṭha dhare ratna siḿhāsana seje
basana nitāi bhuṣana nitāi vilase sakhīra mājhe

Nitai sustains the yogapitha and becomes a throne for the Lord to rest on. Nitai is also the dress and ornaments.
 
ki kahiba āra nitāi sabāra ańkhi mukha sava ańga
nitāi nitāi nitāi nitāi nitāi nutara rańga

He enjoys pastimes with the sakhis. What more can I say? Nitai is the eyes, mouth, and limbs of everyone. Nitai, Nitai, Nitai, Nitai, I see only Nitai dancing.

nitāi baliyā dubahu tuliyā caliba vrajera pure
dāsa vṛndāvana ei nivedana nitāi nā chāḍo more

Raising my hands and chanting Nitai, I will go to Vraja. I, Vrindavana dasa, only request Nitai to kindly never leave me.


Antare Nitai Bahire Nitai
