(gumakari raga, rupaka tala)

Basakasajja

(Radha's waiting for Krsna's arrival)

 

(2)

pasyati disi rahasi bhavantam

tadadhara madhura madhuni pibantam

natha hare sadidati rddha vasagrhe

 

Hey Prabhu! Rai Kisori sees You everywhere; She is seeing that You are kissing Her (and sucking the sweet honey from Her lips) (Chorus: O Goplnatha! Rai kisori anxiously waits for You in the nikunja mandira)

 

(3) tvadabhisarana rabahsena valanti

patati padani kiyanti calanti

natha hare sadidati rddhd rasagrhe

 

Radha's madness to meet You gave Her the strength to leave home; but after walking a few steps, She fell to ground (unconscious).(O Goplnatha! Rai kisori anxiously waits for You in the nikunja mandira.)

 

(4) vihita vasada visa kisalaya valaya

fivati paramiha tava rati kalaya

natha hare sadidati rddhd rasagrhe

 

To relieve Her fever, Radha wears bracelets of lotus stems and leaf blossoms. Her passion to enjoy rati keli with You keeps Her alive.(O Goplnatha! Rai kisori anxiously waits for You in the nikunja mandira.)

 

(5)

muhuravalokita mantana lila

madhuripurahamiti bhavana sila

natha hare sadidati rddhd vasaygrhe

 

Radha even dresses like You....and after staring at HerŽself, She thinks: "I'm Krsna, the enemy of Madhu."(O Goplnatha! Rai kisori anxiously waits for You in the nikunja mandira.)

 

(6)

tvaritamupaitina kathamabhisaram

haririti vadati sakhimanuvaram

natha hare sadidati rddhd vasaygrhe

 

Radha repeatedly asks Her sakhi: "Why hasn't Krsna come to meet Me?"(O Gopinath! Rai Kisori anxiously waits for You in the nikunja mandira).

 

(7)

slisyati cumbati jaladhara kalpam

harirupagata iti timiramanalpam

natha hare sadidati rddhd vasaygrhe

 

Thinking that You have arrived, Radha excitedly embraces and kisses the cloud-like darkness!(O Gopinath! Rai Kisori anxiously waits for You in the nikunja mandira).

 

(8) bhavati vilambini vigalita lajja

vilapati roditi basaka sajja

natha hare sadidati rddhd vasagrhe.

 

Seeing Your delay, Radha has lost all of Her patience; thus (as a basaka sajja nayika*) She mourns. (O Gopinath! Rai Kisori anxiously waits for You in the nikunja madira).

 

(9)

srijayadeva kaveridamuditam

rasikajanam tanutamatimuditam

 

Let this song by the poet Jayadeva delight the rasika bhaktas.

 

(10)

vipula pulaka palih sphita sitharmantu

janita jarima kaku vyakulam vyaharanti

tava kitava vidhayamanda kandarpa cintam

rasa jaladhi nimagna dhyanalagna mragaksi

 

Hey You cheater! Deer-eyed Radha horripulates in thought of meeting You! She cries indistinctly, and while deeply sunk within the rasa-filled ocean of Her kandarpa keli* with You, She becomes stunned!

 

(11)

angesvabharanam karoti vahusah patrhapi sancarini

praptam tvam parisankate vitanute sayam dram dhyayati

ityakalpa vikalpa talpa racana sankalpa Ma sata

vyasaktapi vina tvaya varatanurnaisa nisam nesyati

 

Expecting Your arrival, sharply Radhika decorates Herself with ornaments. Hearing the wind blowing in the trees, She imagines that You have come. While preparing the bed, She meditates on lying beside You. Thus keeping Herself busy in performing one task or another, Her mind reels in fantasy. Yet She cannot pass the night without You.

 

(12)

kim visramyasi krsna bhogi bhavane bhandira bhumiruhe

bhrartyahi na drsti gocaramitah sananda nandaspadam

rddhaya vacanam taddhvaga mukhannandtike gopato

govindasya jayanti sayamatithi prasastya garbha girah

 

(Owing to Krsna's delay, Radha sends a sakhi who goes to His house, and tells Nanda:)"I just visited Radha's home where She told me; Why do you want to rest under the banyan tree? Doesn't black snake reside there?...Or is this Nanda's.(While overhearing the pun, Krsna interprets the followŽing:"O Sweetheart! Won't You rest beside me under the banyan tree, the pleasure-abode where You will experience param ananda?"Let Radha's secret message for Krsna be ever glorified.Thus ends Gita Govinda's Sixth Chapter entitled Drsta Vaikuntha.
