Sixth Night, Sixth Night of the Dark Fortnight

 

Song 1 Shri Gaurachandrasya (of Lord Gaurachandra) (Patha-manjari-raga)

 

1. gobindera ange pahum nija anga diya

gana brindabana-guna anandita haiya

2. ananta ananga jini dehera balani

mukha-canda ki kahiba kahite na jani

3. nacena gaurangacanda gadadhara-rase

gadadhara nace pahum gauranga-bilase

4. tri-bhubana darabita dampati-rase

murari bancita bhela nija maya-doshe

 

 

†††† 1. The Lord leans on Govinda dasa's body. Filled with bliss, He sings the glories of Vrindavana.

†††† 2. The Lord's body defeats numberless Kamadevas. How can I describe the moon of His face? I do not know what to say.

†††† 3. As Gadadhara enjoys nectar pastimes, Lord Gaurangacandra dances. As Lord Gauranga enjoys nectar pastimes, Gadadhara dances.

†††† 4. The three worlds melt in the nectar of ecstatic love for the divine couple. Only Murari does not melt. He is cheated because he is caught in the illusions of maya.

 

 

Song 2 Shri Nityanandacandrasya (of Lord Nityananda) (Gandhara-raga)

 

1. emana nita-i kotha-o dekhi na-i

abadhuta-besha dhari†††††††† jibe dila nama hari

††††††††† hase kande nace are bha-i

2. adwaitera sange ranga†††††††† dharana na yaya anga

††††††††† gora-preme gada tanu khani

daliya daliya cale††††††† bahu tuli hari bale

††††††††† du nayane bahe nita-ira pani

3. kapale tilaka shobhe††††† kutila kuntala lole

††††††††† gunjara anthuni cuda taya

keshari jiniya kati†††††††† kati-tate nila dhati

††††††††† bajana nupura ranga paya

4. ke kaha nita-ira guna†††††††† jiba dekhi sa-karuna

††††††††† hari-name jagata tarila

madana-madete andha††††† bishaye harala bandha

††††††††† hena nita-i bhajite na pa-ila

 

 

†††† 1. I have never seen anyone like Nitai.Wearing the garments of an avadhuta, He gives to the people the holy names of Lord Krishna. O my brothers, He laughs, weeps, and dances.

†††† 2. He enjoys pastimes with Advaita Acarya. Peacefulness is no longer present in His body. His body is overcome with ecstatic love for Lord Gaura. Staggering and staggering, He walks. Raising His arms, He calls out, "Hari!" Tears flow from Lord Nitai's eyes.

†††† 3. Tilaka gracefully adorns His forehead. His curly hair moves to and fro. He wears a crown of gunja. His waist defeats the lion's waist. Blue garments are tied about His waist. On His reddish feet anklets jangle.

†††† 4. Who can describe the glories of Lord Nitai? When He sees the conditioned souls, He becomes filled with compassion. Giving them the holy names of Lord Hari, He has delivered all the worlds. Only persons bound by the ropes of material sense pleasures and blinded by lusty desires have no power to worship Lord Nitai.

 

 

Song 3 Shri Radha Praha (Shri Radha Speaks) (Baradi-raga)

 

1. niti niti asi ya-i†††††† emana kabhu dekhi na-i

††††††††† ki khene bada-inu pa jale

guruya garaba kula††††† nasha-ite kulabatira

††††††††† kalanka age age cala

2. (Refrain) badi ma-i ki dekhinu yamunara dhare

kaliya barana eka††††††††† manusha akara go

††††††††† bika-inu tara ankhi-thare

3. shyama cikaniya de†††††† rase niramila ke

††††††††† prati ange jhalake dapani

bhubana bicitra thama†††††† dekhiya kampaye kama

††††††††† kande kata kulera ramani

4. na jani na shuni taya†††††† se ba kona debataya

††††††††† teni se tahara hena rita

jnana dasete kaya††††††††† na karile paricaya

††††††††† ki janibe tahara carita

 

 

†††† 1. Always, always I come and go there, but never have I seen anyone like Him. When did I attain the water that has washed His feet? A saintly girl's sin can kill the pride of her entire family.

†††† 2. (Refrain) O great mother, who was it that I saw on the Yamuna's bank? He was a dark boy. I sold myself to Him in exchange for His glance.

†††† 3.He was dark and splendid. He was sweet, pure nectar. His every limb glistened like mirrors. He was an abode of great wonders. When I saw Him, passionate desire began to tremble within Me. How many saintly and beautiful girls must weep to attain Him?

†††† 4. I have never known anyone like Him. I have never heard of anyone like Him. What demigod is He? What effect did He have on you? Jnana dasa says: She does not know the identity of that boy. In the future what will she learn about His nature and Hia actions?

 

 

Song 4 Shyama Shri Radham Aha (Shyama-gopi Speaks to Shri Radha) (Mallara-raga)

 

1. rupa dekha siya††††††††† bandhure apana diya

††††††††† yaubane jibane kiba kaja

na dhara amara bola pache pabe laja

2. pithete patera thopa tahe sonara jhampa

kuntala bakula-mala gandha-raja campa

3. nata-bara besha kanura, hate mohana benu

pita dadha paridhana bhuru kama-dhanu

4. ankhira ancala††††††††† nacaya cancala

††††††††† tahe barikhe bana

hiyara bhitara††††††††† karaya bedha

††††††††† yekhane parana

5. ye dhani tahara naya se tare dekhile

shrabane makara-kundala mana dhari gile

6. bamshi-badane kahe e-i katha dadha

bilamba na kara besha bana-iya nada

 

 

†††† 1. Come and look at His glorious form! It is so graceful. How it is filled with youthfulness and life! I cannot say for certain that in the future I will keep my saintly modesty intact.

†††† 2. Covering His back is a golden shawl with tassels. In His hair is a garland of bakula flowers and also a campaka, the king of all fragrant flowers.

†††† 3. Krishna is dressed like the best of dancing actors. In His hand is a flute where He plays melodies filled with enchantment. He wears yellow silk garments. His eyebrows are two bows held by the archer Kamadeva.

†††† 4. He makes crooked glances dance at the corners of His eyes. Those glances are showers of Kamadeva's arrows. Those arrows pierce the heart. They pierce the very breath oflife.

†††† 5. Any beautiful girl who comes near Him will gaze upon Him. The shark-shaped ornaments on His ears are indeed sharks that swallow up any girl's thoughts.

††† 6. Vamshi-vadana says these very firm and certain words: Don't delay! Arrange your garments and ornaments, and run!

 

 

Song 5 (Kamoda-raga)

 

1. nilima mrigamade††††††††† tanu anuranja-i

††††††††† nilima hara ujora

nila-balaya-gana†††††††††† bhuja-yuga-mandita

††††††††† pahirali nila nicola

2. sundari hari-abhisarika lagi

††††††††† kuhu-yamini-bhaya bhagi

3. nila alakakula††††† alike hilolata

††††††††† nila timire calu go-i

nila nalina yaiche††††† shamaru sayare

††††††††† lakha-i na para-i ko-i

4. nila bhramara-gana†††††† parimale dhaba-i

††††††††† caudike karata jhankara

gobinda dasa††††††††††† ata-e anumana-i

††††††††† ra-i calali abhisara

 

 

†††† 1. Black is the musk that anoints Her. Black is Her glistening necklace. Black are the bracelets that decorate Her wrists. Black is Her bodice.

†††† 2. The beautiful girl goes to Her meeting with Krishna. Overcome with new and passionate love, the fair girl has become black. The black night is fearsome.

†††† 3. Black are the curly locks of hair that toss like waves on Her forehead. In the black darkness She stealthily walks. Black now are the lotus flowers. Blackness was brought by the sunset. No one can see anything.

†††† 4. Black are the bumblebees chasing the sweet fragrance. Their buzzing fills the four directions. Govinda dasa says: I can only guess that Shri Radha is now running to meet with Krishna.

 

 

Song 6 (Kedara-raga)

 

1. rati-sukha-shayana†††††††† saji sahacar.i meli

††††††††† ra-i rahali naba kunje

khane khane bhabini†††††† manahim bicarata

††††††††† bibidha manoratha punje

2. rasamaya nagara kana

††††††††† sambhrame karala payana

††††††††† mukha-pankaja-madhu-asha

4. manamatha matha-i††††††††† manoratha-mandare

††††††††† hari-mana-jaladhi bithara

kahe hari-ballabha†††††† aba jani upajaya

††††††††† keli-amrita-rasa-sara

 

 

†††† 1. She arranges the bed for amorous pastimes. She meets Her friends. Radha waits in the forest grove of blossoming flowers. Moment after moment newer and newer thoughts fill Her heart. She is filled with many different desires.

†††† 2. Krishna has heard the nectar words of a gopi-messnger. Krishna, the nectar hero of amorous pastimes, hurries to that place.

†††† 3. His face is sweet with nectar. He is glorious like the moon. His eyes are two cakora birds. He is wonderful. He is a like a black bee that yearns to taste the honey that stays in the lotus flower of a beautiful gopi's lips.

†††† 4. Using a Mandara mountain of desires as the churning rod, Kamadeva churns the ocean of Krishna's heart. Hari-vallabha says: From that churning the sweetest nectar of many pastimes will take its birth.

 

 

Song 7 Pathi Duti Krishna Upadidesha (On the Path a Gopi Delivers a Message to Krishna) (Kamoda-raga)

 

1. bujhiba cha-olapana aja

rai-mani-ratane††††††† anilum badi yatane

††††††††† banci saba ramani-samaja

2. shirisha-kusuma-tani††††††††† ati sukumari dhani

††††††††† alingabi dridha anurage

††††††††† nakha hani anabi kora

aha uhu kare dhani†††††††† kapate bhulabi jani

††††††††† yadi kahe katara bola

 

 

†††† 1. I know what is happening now. With a ruse I will bring jewellike Radha to the assembly of gopis.

†††† 2. Then You should passionately embrace beautiful delicate Radha, who is like a shirisha flower personified. In a secluded place You will enjoy pastimes with Her. No one will now where You are. Afraid of the black bees, the new sprouts that are the young gopis will not break Your pastimes.

†††† 3. Sit next to Her. Declare Your love. In Your passionate pastimes scratch Her with Your fingernails. If, crying ďAlas! Alas!", She protests, then You should pretend to apologize. If You speak, speak plaintive words.

 

 

Song 8 (Baradi-raga)

 

1. a-ola mdhaba pa-ola dhama

sambhrame jagala manasija-gama

2. dhani mukha dhaki rahala eka pasha

badara-dare shashi rahala tarasa

3. calu saba sakhi-jana ingita-jani

7. dahina hata cibuka gahi rakhe

sambhrame badana-indu-rasa cakhe

8. nayana-cakora amrita-rasa piye

aparupa duhum ka ji-u tab jiye

9. bhuja dhari anala kusuma shayana

janama saphala manala panca-bana

10. sa-ghane alingana nirbhara keli

ballabha baidagadhi sa-phalita bheli

 

 

†††† 1. Madhava came. He entered that place. A host of Kamadeva's had anxiously kept a vigil waiting for Him.

†††† 2. Covering her face, a beautiful girl stayed at His side. She was like a moon afraid of the coming monsoon.

†††† 3. Her gopi friends understood Krishna's hints. Lord Krishna held that girl's hand.

†††† 4. Her bracelets angrily thundered: "Jhanajhana!" The girl herself spoke not a word. She was overcome with fear and embarrassment.

†††† 5. How many gopi friends tried to solve the problem about to afflict her? No one could even see that beautiful girl's moonlike face.

†††† 6. The playful lover Krishna, the military genius of amorous battle, tightly held the snake of that girl's braided hair.

†††† 7. With His right hand He held her chin. Then He passionately tasted the nectar that stays in the moon of her lips.

†††† 8. The cakora birds of their eyes tasted the nectar moonlight of each other's visage. The wonderful couple sighed.

†††† 9. Krishna took the girl's arm and led her ot the bed decorated with flowers. Kamadeva thought his birth in this world had certainly now borne its fruit.

†††† 10. In a secluded place Lord Krishna tightly embraced that girl and enjoyed many pastimes with her. In this way her beloved's great genius in the art of amorous battle bore its fruit.
