Yadi Te Hari Pada Saroja Sudha ,sri caitanya

Bhaktivinod Thakur has written this song “Yadi Te Hari Pada Saroja Sudha”. The official Name for this song is Sri Godruma Candra Bhajanopadesa. Bhaktivinoda Thakura describes the glories of Sri Caitanya. It is because of mahaprabhu we got the Hare Krishna Mantra. We are so indebted to Him because He showed us how to worship Sri Krishna and chant the names of Govinda Hare. Because of His mercy we can get the shelter of Godhead.
