Radha's Fascination

(Malava raga, Eka tala)

 

(11)

nibhrta nikunja grham gataya

nisi rahasi niliya vasantam

cakita vilokita sakala disa

rati rabhasa rasena hasantam

sakhl he kesi mathanamudaram

ramaya maya saha madana manoratha

bhavitaya savikaram

 

Tonight I shall wait in a solitary forest cottage. When Krsna arrives there, and sees Me restlessly looking about, He will smile showing His eagerness to enjoy rati keli with Me. (Chorus : O sakhl! Knowing My desire to make love will arouse His ecstatic symptoms of passion. So please unite Me with merciful Kesi mathana*)

 

(12)

prathama sama gama lajjitaya patu catu satairanukulam

mrdu madhura smita bhasitaya sithilakrta jaghanadukulam

sakhi he kesi mathanamudaram

ramaya maya saha madana manoratha

bhavitaya savikaram

 

Being Our first love-encounter, Krsna will notice My shy¬ness and employ lots of flattery to woo Me.... Encouraged by My smiling, He will unloosen the strings holding my lower gar¬ments in place.

(O sakhl! Knowing My desire to make love will arouse His ecstatic symptoms of passion. So please unite Me with merci¬ful Kesi mathana*)

 

(13)

kisalaya sayana nivesitaya ciramurasi mamaiva sayanam

krta parirambhana cumbanaya parirabhya krtacharapanam

sakhl he kesi mathanamudaram

ramaya maya saha madana manoratha

bhavitaya savikaram

 

Laying Me down upon the bed of leaf blossoms, Krsna will rest His head on My breasts (using them for a pillow).... But as I embrace and kiss Him, He will embrace Me and eagerly drink the necture from My lips. (O sakhl! Knowing My desire to make love will arouse His ecstatic symptoms of passion. So please unite Me with merci¬ful Kesi mathana*)

 

(14)

alasa nimilita locanaya pulakavali lalita kapolam

sramajala sahala kalevaraya kara madana dadati lolam

sakhl he kesi mathanamudaram

ramaya maya saha madana manoratha

bhavitaya savikaram

 

Seeing My thirsty, half-closed eyes, His cheeks will erupt in goosebumps! And seeing My perspiration will surcharge Him with more erotic vigor! (O sakhl! Knowing My desire to make love will arouse His ecstatic symptoms of passion. So please unite Me with merci¬ful Kesi mathana*)

 

(15)

kokila kalarava kujitaya jita manasija tantra vicaram

slatha kusumakula kuntalaya nakha likhita ghana

stanabharam

sakhl he kesi mathanamudaram

ramaya maya saha madana manoratha

bhavitaya savikaram

 

In euphoria I shall indistinctly coo like a kokila making Him madly bypass love's standard procedure described in the Kama sastras. Then as My scattered hair casts the flowers decorating it over the bed, He will use His fingertips to tickle My large, voluptuous breasts! (O sakhl! Knowing My desire to make love will arouse His ecstatic symptoms of passion. So please unite Me with merci¬ful Kesi mathana)

 

(16)

carana ranita mani nupuraya paripurita surata vitanam

mukhara visrnkhala mekhalaya sakaca graha cumbandanam

sakhl he kesi mathanamudaram

ramaya maya saha madana manoratha

bhavitaya savikaram

 

During rati keli My ankle bells will sweetly resound along with the bell string tied over My bottom (as I reign over His chest). Then Krsna will grab hold of My hair to pull My head up to His, and frantically begin kissing Me! (O sakhl! Knowing My desire to make love will arouse His ecstatic symptoms of passion. So please unite Me with merci¬ful Kesi mathana)

 

(17)

ratisukha samaya rasalasaya daramukulita nayana sarojam

nihsaha nipatita tanu lataya madhusudana mudita manojam

sakhi he kesi mathanamudaram

ramaya maya saha madana manoratha

bhavitaya savikaram

 

At the rati's peak He will look on with starry, half-closed lotus-eyes., as MY body turns stark in euphoria! I, being a delicate woman, however, will then release My lotus-stem arms to collapse over His chest! Thus all of His desires will reach satiation! (O sakhl! Knowing My desire to make love will arouse His ecstatic symptoms of passion. So please unite Me with merci¬ful Kesi mathana)

 

(18)

srijayadeva bhanitamidamatisaya madhuripu nidhuvana silam

sukhamuthanthita gopabadhu kathitam vitanotu salilam

 

Let Jayadeva's description of Radha's fantasy-filled yearning for Her Nadhuvana lila* with Madhuripu** bring happiness to the bhaktas.

 

(19)

hasta srasta vilasavamsamanrju bhruvallimad vallabi

vmdotsari drganta vikhitamatisvedardra gandasthalam

mamudbikhya vilajjita smita sudha mugdhananam kanane

govindam vrajasundariganavrtam pasyami hrsyami ca

 

Radha says:

 

O sakhl! As Govinda enjoyed vana vihara with My many rivals—He suddenly noticed Me—dropped His flute—and be¬gan perspiring! Thus all of those gopis began pelting Him with jealous, side long glances! But as His perplexed smile fell upon Me, I was tickled pink!

 

(20)

duralokah stoka stavaka navakasoka latika

vikasah kasaropavana pavanohapi vyathayati

api bhramyadbhrngiranita ramaniya na mukula

prasutiscutanam sakhi sikhariniyam sukhayati

 

Hey sakhi, the asoka latas newly blossomed flowers and the cool breezes blowing over the lake before us are paining Me. Moreover, the bees which now buzz amongst those lovely budding mango trees, although enchanting to behold, fail to invoke My pleasure.

 

(21)

sakuta smitomakulakula galaddhanmilla mullasita

bhruvalli kamalika darsita bhujamularddhadrstastanam

goplnam nibhrtom nirikhya gamita kankhasxiram cintayan

antaramugdha manoharam karatu bah klesam nava

kesavah

 

In a lonely place some Vraja kisoris are sitting together and braiding their hair. Their faces appear rosy with wanton smiles for getting Krsna... and their eyebrow-creepers are danc¬ing along with their roaming eyes. But as they raise their hands in combing their hair, the nipples of their half covered breasts become exposed. O readers, let this enchanting scene of Krsna's anxious endeavor to peak at them (from behind the bushes) relieve all for your distress.Thus ends Gita Govinda's Second Chapter entitled Aklesa Kesava.
