Shri Radha-mohana dasa
sakhe, kalaya gauram udaram
O sakhe, sing about the sweet name, beauty, attributes, and pastimes of Shri Shacinandana
Gaurahari, who performs supremely munificent pastimes, whose bodily complexion
vanquishes the luster of molten gold, whose beauty defeats that of millions of
...who is charmingly adorned with a garland of beautiful and fragrant malati flowers
which is itself embellished by the sweet humming of black bees, the splendor of
whose locks of curling black hair defeats the brilliance of dark clouds, whose tilaka
is more brilliant than the moon, whose beautiful attire enchants the minds of everyone
in the entire universe...
nidhuvana nagari mohita-manasa-vikathita-gadgada-bhasham (3)
...whose sweet, gentle smile and unexcelled sentiments of pure love charm all embodied
beings, whose heart is thoroughly immersed in Shrimati Radhika’s unnatojjvalaprema,
and who lovingly extols Shri Krishna in a choked voice.
Hankering to relish the unparalleled pastimes of the greatly munificent Shri
Gaurasundara, who distributes mercy in the form of nama-prema to the supremely
fortunate niskincana souls (those whose only possession is love of Krishna), the fallen
and foolish Radha-mohana sings in a mood of great distress.
