TRANSLATION

Refrain: Friend, please worship the gopa prince who yearns to enjoy pastimes with You.

 

1) He waits in the splendid forest grove sprinkled by spray from the Yamuna. He enjoys transcendental pastimes with the young gopis. He is full of love for You.

 

2) He wears a charming necklace of fresh gunja. Bumblebees play in His garland of flowers. He is playful and witty. He is a cowherd boy. He enjoys eternal transcendental pastimes.
