TRANSLATION

(Refrain) Radha, the teenage girl who enjoys pastimes with dark Krsna, Radha who is filled with hundreds of amorous desires, and who is gloriously beautiful has not yet come.

 

1) Her blossoming lotus face breaks the nectar-moon into pieces. The smile on her lips robs charming Krsna of His heart.

 

2) She is decorated with many bakula flowers. Sipping and sipping the nectar of these flowers, the black bees are wild with bliss. All Her ornaments sweetly jangle.

 

3) The jewel anklets on Her lotus feet coo like khanjana birds. Her toenails are like Kamadeva's jewel mirrors. Govinda dasa offers arati to Her.

This song is sung in Bengali Raga Sindhura Gandhara.
