Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
dekhite dekhite, bhuliba va kabe, nija-sthula-paricaya
nayane heriba, vraja-pura-shobha, nitya cid-ananda-maya (1)
When I will forget my gross bodily identity, then I will behold the exquisite beauty
of Vraja, full of eternal spiritual bliss and cognizance.
vrishabhanu-pure, janama laiba, yavate vivaha ha’be
vraja-gopi-bhava, haibe svabhava, ana bhava na rahibe (2)
I shall take birth in Vrishabhanu Maharaja’s town and will marry in the nearby village
of Yavat. My sole disposition and nature will be that of a cowherd maiden.
nija-siddha-deha, nija-siddha-nama, nija-rupa sva-vasana
radha-kripa-bale, labhiba va kabe, krishna-prema-prakarana (3)
When will I obtain, by the power of Radha’s mercy, my own eternal spiritual body,
my own realized name and dress embellishing my real form? And when will I receive
initiation into the techniques of expressing divine love for Krishna?
yamuna-salila-aharane giya, bujhibo yugala-rasa
prema-mugdha ha’ye, pagalini-praya, gaiba radhara yasha (4)
As I go to draw water from the Yamuna, I will understand the confidential mellows
of Yugala-Kishora’s loving affairs. Being captivated by prema, I will sing Shri Radhika’s
glories just like a madwoman.
