Radha's Pain

 

(31)

anila tarala kuvalaya nayanean

tapita na sa kisalya syanena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Vanamali's eyes are like lotus flowers moving in the breeze.The sundari gopl who makes love with Him upon the soft leaf bed isn't burning with passion, sakhi (Rather, I am burning!)

 

(32)

vikasita sarasija lalita mukhena

sphutati na sa manasija visikhena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Vanamali's face is like a blossoming lotus flower; the sundari gopl who is making love with Him doesn't become tortured by Cupid's arrows, sakhi (rather, those arrows are torturing Me!)

 

(33)

amrta madhura mrdutara vacanena

jvalati na sa malayaja pavanena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Vanamali's gentle, nectar-sweet words are cooling as the malayan breeze. That sundari gopi who makes love with Him isn't burning from hearing those words, sakhi....(rather, I am burning!)

 

(34)

sthala jalaruha ruci kara carnena

lutati na sa himakara kiranena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Vanamali's hands and feet are beautiful and cooling like a land lotus. That sundari gopi who make love with Him doesn't roll over the ground (and faint) upon viewing the moonrays, sakhi... (rather, the moonrays are making Me do so!)

 

(35)

sajala jalada samudaya rucirena

dahati na sa hrdi viahe dabena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Vanamali's bodily luster is like a soft, blue raincloud. That sundari gopi who makes love with Him isn't burning in the fire of His separation, sakhi... (rather, I am burning!)

 

(36)

kanaka nikasa ruci suci vasanena

svasiti na sa parijana hasanena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Vanamali's garments are touchstone gold. The sundari gopi who makes love with Him won't have to breath heavily from her friends' ridicule, sakhi (rather, My friends will ridicule Me!)

 

(37)

sakala bhuvana jana vara tarunena

vahati na sa rujamati karunena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Vanamali is the world's most beautiful young boy. That sundari gopi who makes love with Him doesn't have to suffer heart-piercing pain, sakhi.... (Rather, I am suffering such pain!)

 

(38)

srijayadeva bhanita vacanena

pravisatu harirapi hrdayamanena

sakhi ya ramita vanamalina

 

Let Sri Jayadeva's description of Radharanl's viraha suf¬fering, along with Krsna, enter every bhakta's heart.

 

(39)

mamobhavanandana candananila

prasida re dakhina muncha vamatam

ksanam jagatprana vidhaya madhvam

puro mam pranafaro bhavisyasi

 

O hey malayan breeze! You are Kamadeva's dear friend and jagata prana (the life of the world). Please be merciful and grant Me one last request: Before taking My life, please bring Madhava before Me just once more!

 

(40)

cipuriva sakhi sanvasohayam sikhiva himanilo

visamiva sudha rasmiraysmin dunoti manogate

hradayamadare tasminnevam punarbhalte balat

kuvalya drsam bamah kamo nikam nirankusah

 

In seeing Krsna's cruelty—My sakhis appear like enemies, the cooling breeze appears like fire, the pleasant moonbeams appear like poison-still My mind races after Him! Haya! Haya! Kamadeva has heartlessly turned against this lotus-eyed sweet¬heart of Gokula!

 

(41)

vadham vidheyhi malayanila panchavana

pranam grhana na grham punarasrayisye

kim te krtantabhagini ksamaya tarangai

rangani sincha mama samyatu dehadahah

 

Hey malayan breeze! ...Take My life! Hey Cupid's five ar¬rows!... Just kill Me! Hey Yamuna! Why do You forgive Me? Just take Me under Your waves. I shall never return home again!

 

(42)

pratirnila nicolamacyutamurah samvitapitamsukam

radhayascaritam vilokya hasati svairam sakhimandale

vrira cancalmanchalam nayanayoradhaya rddhdnane

smerasmera mukhohayamastu jagadanandaya nandatmajah

 

(Owing to his inability to go on describing Radharanl's sad plight, Jayadeva recalls to memory a previous happy episode ) Once at the break of morning after Radha and Krsna's rati keli, the sakhis broke into laughter seeing Krsna anxiously cov¬ering Himself with Radha's blue sari, and Radha anxiously covering Herself with Krsna's pitambara dhoti. O readers! Let this smiling faced Nanda-nandana who then bashfully peaked at Radha through Her thin cloth, increase the world's ananda.Thus ends Gita Govinda's Seventh Chapter entitled Nagara Narayana.
