Second Night, Second Night of the Dark Fortnight

 

Song 1 Shri Gaurachandrasya (of Lord Chaitanya) (Deshaga-raga)

 

1. kundana kanaya kalebara-kanti

prati ange abirala pulakako panti

2. prema-bhare dhara dhara locana caya

katahum mandakini tanhi bahi yaya

3. dekha dekha gaura guna-mani

karunaya ko bihi milayala ani

4. japi japaye madhura nija nama

ga-i gaoyaye apana guna-gama

5. naci nacaoye badhira jada andha

katihum na pekhom aichana parabandha

6. apahim bhori bhubana karu bhora

nija para nahi sabare de-i kora

7. bhasala preme akhila nara-nari

gobinda dasa kahe yana balihari

 

 

     1. His body is effulgent like gold. On His every limb the hairs stand erect in ecstasy.

     2. A celestial Ganga of tears of ecstatic love flows from His eyes.

     3. Look! Look at Lord Gaura! Who gave Him transcendental compassion? Who placed on Him the jewel ornaments of all virtues?

     4. He sweetly chants His own holy names. He makes others chant also. He sings songs describing His own glories. He makes others sing those songs also.

     5. He dances. He makes the deaf, dumb, and blind dance also. I do not see any way these activities may be explained.

     6. He is overwhelmed with bliss. He makes all the worlds also become overwhelmed with bliss. Overwhelmed, no one knows who he is or who other persons are.

     7. The men and women of this world now swim and float in an ocean of divine love. Govinda dasa says: I surrender my self and my everything to Lord Gaura.

 

 

Song 2 Nityanandacandrasya (of Lord Nityananda) (Dhanashi-raga)

 

1. cale nitai prema-bhare         diga thalamala kare

          pada-bhare abani dolaya

adha adha katha kaya       mukhera bahira naya

          nija parishade guna gaya

2. (Refrain) dekha bha-i abani-mandale nityananda

bhaiyara mukha heri badhaye ananda

3. paridhana nila dhathi       anthani na rahe kati

          antarbhabe bahya nahi jane

a\nga heli duli cale         gaura gauira sada bale

          nishi nishi aba nahi jane

4. yuge yuge rama       sujana-pratipalaka

          pashandira karite binasha

shri-krishna-chaitanyacandra      thakura shri-nityananda

          guna gaya brindabana dasa

 

 

     1. Overcome with ecstatic love, Lord Nitai walks. The weight of His footsteps makes the ground sway to and fro. The directions tremble. Half-spoken words come from His mouth. His associates sing His glories.

     2. (Refrain) O my brother, look at Lord Nityananda as He walks in the circle of the earth. Gazing at His brother's faces, He becomes filled with bliss.

     3. He wears blue garments. The sash is no longer wrapped about His waist. Overcome with ecstatic love, He knows nothing of the external world. His body has fallen into the dust. “Gaura! Gaura!", He calls out again and again. He does not know whether it is day or night.

     4. Yuga after yuga He is Balarama. He protects the saintly devotees and destroys the blasphemers. Vrindavana dasa thus sings the glories of Shri Krishna Chaitanyacandra and Thakura Shri Nityananda.

 

 

Song 3 Shri Krishna Aha (Shri Krishna Speaks) (Bala-dhanashi-raga)

 

1. hera-ite heri na heri

pucha-ite kaha-i na kaha punaberi

2. chatura sakhi sane basa-i

hase parihase hasa-i na hasa-i

3. pekhalum braja-naba-nari

tarunima shaishaba bujha-i na parii

4. hridaya-nayana-gati-rite

so kiye ana nahe paratite

5. aichana hera-ite gori

hatha sane paithala mana maha mori

6. tabahim kusuma-shara bhora

chutala banba putala hiya mora

7. gobinda dasa cite jaga

candaki lagi suraya uparaga

 

 

     1. I try to see, but I cannot see. I cannot ask again and again.

     2. The gopis are very clever. Still, when there are jokes sometimes they laugh, and sometimes they do not laugh.

     3. I have watched the girls of Vraja. I do not know whether they are women or children.

     4. I have watched the evidence of their gestures, eyes, and hearts. Still I cannot decide.

     5. One day a fair young gopi violently attacked My heart.

     6. She shot a flower-arrow at Me. Now My heart is gravely wounded.

     7. Govinda dasa sings in his thoughts: Aha! Now the sun has fallen in love with the moon.

 

 

Song 4 Shri Krishnena saha sakhya ukti-pratyukti (Conversation of Lord Krishna with a gopi) (Varadi-raga)

 

1. madhaba kaiche milaba tohe so-i

kulabati bala sulabha nahi ho-i

2. e sakhi e majhu tanu mana prana

ya-i kaha tahe deyanu dana

3. tuhum ati lolupa giribaradhari

so dhani ati parabasha para-nari

4. ati kulashila laja bhaya punje

kemana yukati tahe anaba kunje

5. eka kusuma=shara bala yadi karaye

tuhum ati sukrita shakhi phala dharaye

6. tab hama e yasha pa-oba aji

puraba tohari manoratha-raji

7. eta kahi ali calali yanhi bala

gahi hari-ballabha guna-mani-mala

 

 

     1. O Madhava, how will she meet You? It is not easy for a respectable girl to meet with a boy.

     2. O gopi friend, I give My body, heart, and life to her. Please go to her and tell her this.

     3. O very restless rake Giridhari, this beautiful girl belongs to another. She is another man's wife.

     4. She is very virtuous, modest, and shy. What can I say to her to bring her to this forest grove?

     5. If My flower-arrow is powerful against her, then the tree of your pious good fortune will burst into flowers.

     6. Today I will become glorious. I will arrange that Your desire is fulfilled.

     7. This I say: I will bring this girl to her lover. Hari-vallabha sings this song glorifying a person adorned with a necklace of the jewels of all virtues.

 

 

Song 5 (Suha-i Deshaga-raga)

 

1. aju hama pekhalum kalindi-kule

tuya binu madhaba bilutha-i dhule

2. kata shata rama.ni manahim nahi ane

kiye bikha-doha-samaye jala dane

3. madana-bhujangame damshala kana

binahim amiya-rasa ki karaba ana

4. kulabati-dharama kaca samatu;a

madana dalala bhela anukula

5. anala beci nilamani-hara

so tuma pahiri karibi abhisara

6. nila nicole jhampaha nija deha

janu ghana bhitare damini-reha

7. caudike caturi sakhi calu sange

aju nikunje karaha rasa-range

8. ballabha ujjvala nikasha samana

nija tanu-parikha hema dashabana

 

 

     1. Today I gaze at the Yamuna's bank. In Your absence, O Madhava, I now roll in the dust.

     2. Did You not conquer hundreds of beautiful girls' hearts? How can I extinguish a great forest fire by merely sprinkling a few drops of water?

     3. Because of You, O Krishna, I am now bitten by Kamadeva's snake. Bereft of any nectar-antidote, what can i do now?

     4. The chastity of pious girls is a virtue worthless like a piece of glass. Acting for my sake, the merchant Kamadeva will trade that piece of glass for something truly valuable.

     5. I will trade that piece of glass for a necklace of sapphires. When I go to meet You, I will wear that necklace.

     6. With a great black cloak I will cover my body. My body will be like a flash of lightning covered by a great black cloud.

     7. In the four directions will be my wise gopi friends. Today please enjoy nectar pastimes with me in the forest.

     8. O beloved Krishna, You are a gold-testing stone to test amorous pastimes. By touching You I wish to test the purity of my gold body.

 

 

Song 6 (Kanada-raga)

 

1. ya-obi basane anga saba go-i

dure rahabi janu bata na ho-i

2. sajani pahilahim rahabi laja-i

kutila nayane dibi madana jaga-i

3. jhampabi kuca darasha-obi kandha

dridha kari bandhabi nibihaka bandha

4. mana karabi kachu rakhabi bhaba

rakhabi rasa janu puna puna aba

5. bhana-i bidyapati prathamaka bhaba

yo gunabanta so-i phala paba

 

 

     1. Cover your body with glorious garments and go there. Wait far away. Don't say a word.

     2. O my friend, at first you should carefully preserve your shyness. Even though it will be daytime, Kamadeva will awaken in your crooked glances.

     3. Cover your breasts, but your shoulders should be in clear sight. Tightly You should tie the sash at your waist.

     4. You should be proud. Conceal your true feelings. Again and again You should hide the sweet love you feel.

     5. Vidyapati says: This is the first time she has felt this kind of love. This saintly girl will attain the fruit of her yearnings.

 

 

Song 7 (Bala-raga)

 

1. parihara e sakhi tohe paranama

hama nahi ya-oba so piya-thama

2. aneka yatana kari kara-oli besha

bandhite na janiye apana kesha

3. ingite na janiye kaichana mana

bacanaka caturi hama nahi jana

4. kabahum na janiye surataka bata

kaiche milaba hama madhaba satha

5. so bara-nagara rasika sujana

hama naba nagari alapa geyana

6. banaye bidyapati ki bolaba toya

ajuka milana samucita hoya

 

 

     1. O my friend, I bow down befire you. I will not approach my beloved.

     2. Again and again I struggle to dress attractively. I do not know how to tie my hair gracefully.

     3. I do not know anything abour reading subtle hints and signs. How will be properly proud and reserved?

     4. Never did I know the art of flirting by speaking graceful words. How will I meet Madhava and stay in His company?

     5. He is a great hero expert at tasting the nectar of amorous pastimes, and i am only a young girl with only the slightest knowledge of all those pastimes.

     6. Vidyapati says: What can I say to you? Today you will meet with Madhava. All will be well.

 

 

Song 8 (Bala-raga)

 

1. shuna shuna sundari hita upadesha

hama shikha-oba bacana bishesha

2. pahilahim baithabi shayanako sima

adha neharabi bankima gima

3. yab piya parasha-i thelabi pani

mauna karabi kachu na karabi bani

4. yab piya dhari bale le-oba pasha

nahi nahi bolabi gada gada bhasha

5. piya-parirambhane modabi anga

rabhasa samaye puna de-obi bhanga

6. bhana-i bidyapati ki bolaba hama

apahim guru ho-i shikhayaba kama

 

 

     1. Listen. Listen, O beautiful one. I will teach you what is right.

     2. First you should sit down on the edge of the bed. Then, with crooked eyes you should half glance at Him.

     3. When your lover tries to touch you, you should push Him away with your hand. You should remain silent. Don't say a word.

     4. When, holding you by force, He ties you in the ropes of His embrace, you should protest. In a choked voice you should say: "No! No!"

     5. Then you should turn your body away from your lover's embrace. Ferociously you should stop Him again and again.

     6. Vidyapati says: What can I say? Kamadeva is already your guru. He will teach you.

 

 

Song 9 (Shri-raga)

 

1. tuya gune kulabati-          barata-samapani

          guru-gauraba-bhaya chodi

guru-jana-dithi-        kanthaka kari a-oli

          manahim manoratha bhori

2. (Refrain) shuna madhaba tohe sompanu braja-bala

marakata-madana          ko-i janu puja-i

de-i naba-kancana-mala

3. tuhum ati capala-         carita janu shatpada

kamalini bipina-goyari

mridula-shirisha-      kusuma janu todabi

lahu lahu karabi sancari

4. taruni-samaje      shuni janu durajana

hasi na de-i karatali

dutiko minati          etahum tuya pada-tale

gobinda dasa balihari

 

 

     1. Now that their vow of chastity has come to an end, the gopis have left behind all fear and respect for their elders. Passing beyond the bramble-bushes of their elders' glances, they have come here. They are overcome with desire.

     2. (Refrain) Please hear, O Madhava. The girls of Vraja worship You. They have become like a new golden necklace adorning You, the sapphire Deity of Lord Kamadeva.

     3. Please bcome like a restless black bee playing in the lotus-flower forest that is the gopis. Sweetly, sweetly please play with the soft shirisha flowers that are the gopis.

     4. Persons who, hearing of Your pastimes with the girls of Vraja, do not smile and clap their hands and cheer are only demons. This gopi messenger places this request at Your feet. Hearing these words, Govinda dasa has become stunned and silent.

 

 

Song 10 (Bala-raga)

 

1. sakhi parabodhi sheja-tale ani

piya-hiya harakhi dhayala nija pani

2. chun-ite bala malina bha-i geli

bidhu-kore kumudini kamalini bheli

3. nahi nahi karaye nayane bahe lora

shuti rahala ra-i shayanaka ora

4. alingaye nibi-bandhana bini koli

kare kuca parashe seho bhela thori

5. ancara le-i badana ura jhampe

thira nahi hoyata tharahari kampe

6. bhanaye bidyapati dharaya sara

dine dine madana karaye adhikara

 

 

     1. Awakening, She sat on the edge of the bed. Her hand She rested on Her beloved's chest.

     2. To touch Him She wilted with shyness. She became like a lotus forest that the moon of Lord Krishnacandra placed on His lap.

     3. "No. No.", She said. Tears slid from Her eyes. Radha sat on the edge of the bed.

     4. Lord Krishna embraced Her. He untied her sash. He touched Her breast.

     5. She covered Her face with Her garment. Then She covered her breast. She was not peaceful. She trembled.

     6. Peaceful Vidyapati says: Day after day She became more and more learned in the arts of Kamadeva's pastimes.
