(Krsna's rasa-filled, beautiful form)

 

(2)

sancaradadhara sudha madhura

dvani mukharita mohana vamsam

valita drgancala cancala mauli kapola vilola vatamsam

rase harim iha vihita vilasam

smarati mano mama krta praihasam

 

O dear one, Krsna'smadhura smile during His rasa vilasa* still awakens within My mind. Aha! As His sweet lips blew into His enchanting vamsi, His eyes were restless and lurking; thus His crown tilted as His ear rings played over His cheeks.

 

(3)

candraka cam mayura sikhandaka mandala balayita kesam

pracura purnadara dhanuranranjita medura mudira suvesam

rase harim iha vihita vilasam

smarati mano mama krta parihasam

 

Krsna's hair, decorated by peacock feathers in the curvaŽture of a half-moon, looked like a glistening cloud sheltering many rainbows. (Chorus: O shaki! Krsna's madhura smile during His rasa vilasa still awakens within My mind.)

 

(4)

vipula pulaka bhuja pallava

balayita ballava juvati shasram

kara caranorasi manigana

bhusana kirana vibhinnatamisram

rase harim iha vihita vilasam

samrati mano mama krta parihasam

 

Krsna's arms horripulated with the embrace of thousands of young, sundari ramanis*. The ornaments worn oh His hands, feet and chest lit up the darkness! (O sakhi! Krsna's madhura smile during His rasa vilasa still awakens within My mind.)

 

(5)

jalatda patala caladindu vinindka candana tilaka lalatam

pina payodhara parisara mardana nirdaya hrdaya kavatam

rase harim iha vihita vilasam

smarati mano mama krta parihasam

 

The candana tilaka on Krsna's forehead looked like moonŽbeams peakng through a cloud. But His naughty chest was inŽtently focused on rubbing itself over the gopl's large, volupŽtuous breasts!

(O sakhi! Krsna's madhura smile during His rasa vilasa still awakens within My mind.)

 

(6)

gopa kadamba nitambavati mukhacumban lambita lobham

bandhyujiva madhuradhara pallavamullasita smita sobham

rase harim iha vihita vilasam

smarati mano mama krta parihasam

 

In His earnestness to kiss the nitambinis (gopls having a large, beautiful bottom) Krsna leaned forward, outstretched His neck, and smiled with His blooming, bandhuli flower lips.

(O sakhi! Krsna's madhura smile during His rasa vilasa still awakens within My mind.)

 

manimaya makara manohara kuntalamandita

gandamudaram

pita vasanamanugata mui manuja surasurabara parivaram

rase harim iha vihita vilasam

smarati mano mama krta parihasam

 

Seeing the beauty of His makara ear rings resting over His cheek, the wives of the munis, the devatas and the asuras all follow after that magnanimous Pitambara Vanamali. (O sakhl! Krsna's madhura smile during His rasa vilasa still awakens within My mind.)

 

(8)

visada kadamba tale militam kali kausa bhayam samayamtam

mamapi kimapi tarangavadanangadrsa manasa ramayaniam

rase harim iha vihita vilasam

smarati mano mama krta parihasam

 

But then We met benieth a widespread kadamba tree! Knowing about My jealousy (and wishing to dispel it) His glance enveloped Me like the waves of Cupid! Ugh! I felt as though He were making love to Me within His mind! (O sakhl! Krsna's madhura smile during His rasa vilasa still awakens within My mind.)

 

(9)

srijayadeva bhanitamatisundara mohana madhuripu rupam

haricarana smaranam prati samprati puryavatam anurupam

 

Let Sri Jayadeva's description of Krsna's beautiful, enchantŽing form awaken the remembrance of His lotus feet for the pious bhaktas.

 

(10)

ganayati gunagramam bhramam bhramadapi nehati

vahati ca paritosam dosam vimuncati duratah

yuvatisu balatrsne viharini mam vina

punarapi mano vamam kamam karoti karomi kim

 

O sakhl! While contemplating about Krsna's behavior, I am not angry. Rather, my unbridled mind still deeply yearns for Him—even though He left me to enjoy with so many pretty, young woman. O what shall I do?
