Madhava Ghosha

 

 

Song 1 (Mayura-raga)

 

 

1. (Refrain) nace pahum abadhuta gora

mukha tachu abikala      purna bidhu mandala

          nirabadhi mantra rase bhora

2. aruna kamala pakhi         jini ranga duti ankhi

          bhramara-yugala duti tara

sonara bhudhare yaiche        suranadi bahe taiche

          buka bahi pade prema-dhara

3. kesharira kati jini         tahate kaupina-khani

          aruna basana bahir-basa

galaya donara mala       bhushana kariya ala

          nasa tila-prasuna bikasha

4. kanaka mrinala yuga         su-balita duti bhuja

          kara yuga kunjara bilasa

rata utpala phula        padma nahe sama-tula

          parashane mahira ullasa

5. a-pada mastaka gaya        pulake purita taya

          yaiche nila phula ati shobha

prabhate kadali janu          sa-ghane kampita tanu

          madhaba ghoshera mano-lobha

 

 

     1. (Refrain) The avadhuta Lord Gaura dances. Without stop the perfect full moon of His face tastes the nectar of the maha-mantra.

     2. His reddish yees defeat the red lotus petals. The pupils of His eyes are like black bees. Tears of ecstatic spiritual love flow down His chest like a celestial Ganga flowing down a golden mountain.

     3. His waist defeats the lion's waist. He wears a kaupina and saffron outer garments. On His neck rests a damanaka-flower garland. His ornaments glisten. His nose is like a sesame blossom.

     4. His two graceful arms are two golden lotus-stems. His hands play like two elephant-trunks. The red lotus-flowers are not their equal. Lord Gaura's touch fills the earth with bliss.

     5. From head to foot, the hairs stand erect on His body, hairs glorious like blossoming blue flowers. His trembling body is like a banana tree at dawn. In his heart Madhava Ghosha yearns to attain Lord Gaura's company.
