Shri Krishna-Virahe

Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

 

shri krishna-virahe, radhikara dasha, ami ta’ sahite nari

yugala-milana, sukhera karana, jivana chadite pari (1)

 

I am absolutely unable to tolerate Shri Radhika’s pitiable condition when She is

suffering in separation from Shri Krishna, but I am fully prepared to immediately give

up my life for the sake of Their happy reunion.

 

radhika-carana, tyajiya amara, kshaneke pralaya haya

radhikara tare, shata-bara mari, se duhkha amara saya (2)

 

If I were ever to renounce Radhika’s lotus feet for even an instant, I would be totally

devastated. For Her sake I will gladly tolerate the pain and agony of death hundreds

of times.

 

e hena radhara, carana-yugale, paricarya pa’ba kabe

haha vraja-jana, more daya kari’, kabe vraja-vane labe (3)

 

When will I be able to serve Radhika’s two lotus feet? Alas, I beg you all, O residents

of Vraja, please be merciful to me now. When will you take me into the forests of

Vraja?

 

vilasa manjari, ananga manjari, shri rupa manjari ara

amake tuliya, laha nija pade, deha more siddhi sara (4)

 

O Vilasa Manjari! O Ananga Manjari! O Rupa Manjari! Please lift me up and bring

me close to your own lotus feet, thereby bestowing upon me the ultimate perfection.
