Radha's Abhisara

 

(8)

rati sukha sare gatamabhisare madana manohara vesam

nakuru nitambini gamana vilambananusara tarn hrdayesam

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pina payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

The sakhi continues:

 

Hey nitambini* Radhe! Don't delay—just follow after Your heart's beloved Who has already left for the nikunjas; His erotic attire would captivate even Cupid. (Don't You know?) His rati

*maha tirtha : a great, sacred site of pirgrimage keli pleasure with You means everything to Him. Aha! That restless handed,, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.

 

(9)

nama sametam krta sanketam vadyate mrdu venum

bahu manute nanute tanu sangata pavana calitamapi renum

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pina payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

Placing the sweet sounding venu to His lips, He calls: Radhe! Radhe! He even worships the dust particles that the breeze carry from Your body.(Chorus : Aha! That restless handed,, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.)

 

(10)

patita patatre vicalita patre sankita bhavadupayanam

racayati sayanam sacaktia nayanam pasyati tava panthanam

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pirta payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

Hearing a bird land in a tree on a leaf fall on the ground alerts Him! Thus (thinking that You have arrived) He arranges the flower bed as His restless eyes search for You! (Aha! That restless handed, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.)

 

(11)

mukharamadhiram tyaja manjiram ripumiva kelisu lolam

cala sakhi kunjam satimira pujam silaya nila nicolam

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pina payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

Hey Nitambini Rai! Discard Your ankle bells which ring so sweetly when You make love with Madhava; for their noise, like an enemy, will announce Your secret journey.. ..And cover Yourself in deep blue garments (to hide Your bright bodily effulgence) as the nikunja mandira is covered in darkness. (Aha! That restless handed, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.)

 

(12)

urasi murarerupahita hare ghanaiva tarala balake

taridiva pite rati viparite rajasi sukrta vipake

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pina payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

Ayi Gaurangi Radha! When climbing over Krsna's chest during viparita rati keli* , You will appear like the lightening within a dark cloud! (Aha! That restless handed, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.)

 

(13)

vigalita vasanam parihrta rasanamghatya jaghanamapidhanam

kisalaya sayane pankaja nayane nidhimiva harsa nidhanam

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pina payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

O lotus-eyed Radhe! When You lie upon the leaf-blossom bed, Krsna will eagerly remove Your clothes along with the bell-chain worn over Your bottom. Then He will ecstatically view Your lovely thighs to be more precious than an uncovered jewel.(Aha! That restless handed, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.)

 

(14)

hariratimani rajaniridanimiyamapi yati viramam

kuru mama vacanam satvara racanam

puraya madhuripu kamam

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pina payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

O Rai! You are Krsna's coveted rati nayika (conjugal lover) and the night is fleeting ...so quickly take my advice and go satisfy Madhuripu's kama. (Aha! That restless handed, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.)

 

(15)

sri jayadeva krta hari seve bhanati parama ramaniyam

pramudita hrdayam harimatisadaym

namata sukrta kamaniyam

dhira samire yamuna tire vasati vane vanamali

pina payodharra parisara marddana cancala karayagalsali

 

O Readers! Just hear the enchanting narrations of Krsna's bhakta Jayadeva. Then joyfully offer a pranama to Krsna-ji, the merciful shelter and supreme goal of the pious. (Aha! That restless handed, big breast pinching Vanamali now sits beside the Yamuna where the cool breeze softly blows.)

 

(16)

vikirati muhuh svasanasah puro muhurikasate

pravisati muhuh kunjam gujanamahurbhau tamyati

racarati muhuh sajyam parijyakulam muhuriksate

madana kadana klantah kante priyastava varttate

 

O Radhe! Cupid's arrows make Your Beloved breath heavily. He anxiously steps out hoping to find You; but when failing He goes back to lament. Then after rearranging the bed, He returns outside to have another look.

 

(17)

tvadvamyena samam samagramadhuna tigmamsurastam gato

govindasya manorathena ca samam praptam tamah sandratam

kokanam karunasvanena sersi dirgha madabhyarthana

tanmugdhe viphalam vilambanamasou ramyohabhisaraksanah

 

O Radhe, the sun's setting has made Your journey easy; the darkness fuses itself to aid Krsna's desire. Like a lovelorn cakravaka I have offered my appeal... Yet now the time for abhisara has come. So hey Enchanting one! Why delay?

 

(18)

asleyadanu cumbanadanu nakhollekahadanu svantaja .

prodbodhadanu sambhramadanu ratarambhadanu pritayoh

anyartham gatayorbhranmilitayoh sambhasanairjanator

dampatyoriha ko na ko na tamasi virdavimisra rasah

 

Sakhi Radhe! You will go to search for each other in dark¬ness, and unite. Thus a rasa-filled conversation will ensue, fol¬lowed by embracing, kissing, marking each other with Your nails and the desire to make love. This will, at first, arouse Your fear and hesitation. But next rati keli will begin, and at its conclu¬sion, You will experience euphoria along with countless won¬derful thoughts and feelings!

 

(19)

sabhaya cakitam vinyasyantim drsou timire pathi

pratitaru muhuh sthitva mandam padani vitanvatim

kathamapi rahah praptamangairananga tarangibhih

sumukhi subhangah pasyan sa tvamupaitu krtarthatam

 

Ayi lovely faced Radhe! Just traverse the dark path, and while resting under each tree, You may restlessly look back to see if anyone Is watching. Then, by slowing proceeding ahead, You will at last reach the secluded meeting place. Aho! When Krsna sees Your beautiful, sharply ananga tranga murati* ar¬riving before Him like a sprawling wave of erotic pleasure, He will deem His life successful!

 

(20)

rddha mugdha mukharavinda madhurpastrailokya mauli sthali

nepathyoccita nili ratnamavani bharavatara ksamah

svacchandam vraja sundarijana manastosa pradosasciram

kamsa dvamsan dhumaketuravatu tvam devaki nandanah.

 

Krsna is the enchanted bumblebee of Radha's mukharavinda**, the crown jewel of the three worlds, and Vrndvana's Nilamani (bright blue sapphire). He is forever rel¬ished within the Vraja sundaris hearts as the enjoyable form of nigh (personified). Moreover, He becomes death personified for demons like Kamsa. O bhaktas, let this Devakinandana protect you. Thus ends Gita Govinda's Fifth Chapter entitled Sakanka Pundarikaksa.
