 Krsna's Viraha

 

(2)

vahti malaya samire madanamupanidhaya

sphutati kusumanikare virahi hrdaya dalanaya

sakhi he sidati tava virahe vanamali

 

Hey Radhe! Vanamali reels in Your separation! Cupid has teamed with the southern breeze and the blooming flowers to torture Him!

 

(3)

dahati sisra mayuke maranamaukaroti

patati madana visikhe vilapati vikalatarohati

sakhl sidati tava virahe vanamali

 

The burning moonrays have almost killed Krsna, along with Cupid's arrows which sting! (Chorus : O Radhe! Vanamali reels in Your separation!)

 

(4)

dhavanati madhupa samuhe sravanamapidadhati

manasi balita virahe nisi nisi rujamupajati

sakhi sidati tava virahe vanamali

 

Hearing the bees drone, Krsna covers His ears; yet from moment to moment His viraha pain increases! (O Radhe! Vanamali reels in Your separation!)

 

(5)

basati vipina vitane tyajati lalita dhama

uthati dharani bahu vilapati tava nama

sakhi sidati tava virahe vanamali

 

Krsna left His comfortable home to meet You in the forest. Yet while anxiously rolling over the bed, He goes on crying Your name! (O Radhe! Vanamali reels in Your separation!)

 

(6)

bhanati kavi jayadeva iti viraha vilasitena

manasi rasa vibhave barirudayatu sukrtena

sakhi saditi tava virahe vanamali

 

Let Jayadeva's description of Krsna's viraha for Radha awaken His presence in every pious bhakta's heart. (O Radhe! Vanamali reels in Your separation!)

 

(7)

purbbam yatra samam tvaya ratipaterasaditah siddhayas

tasminneva nikunja manmatha mahatirthe punarmadhavam

dhyayamstv amanisam japannapi tavaivalapa mantravalim

bhuyastvat kuca kumba nirbhara parirambhamrtam vanchati

 

Hey Priya sakhi Rai Madhava eagerly awaits Your arrival at the site which previously serve as Cupid's maha tirtha* for fulfilling Your love -demands. Now he is devoutly meditating on Your lovely form, chanting the magic mantras uttered from Your sweet lips, and earnestly craving for the amrta found in tightly hugging Your pitcher-like-breasts!
