LYRICS

(Refrain)

bhāmini pṛccha na vāraḿ vāram

hanta vimuhyati vīkṣya mano mama ballava-rāja-kumāram

kuṭilaḿ mām avalokya navāmbujam upari cucumba sa rańgī

tena haṭhād aham abhavaḿ vepathu-maṇḍala-sañcalad-ańgī

tad aham avekṣya babhūva ciraḿ bata vismṛta-kāyika-karmā

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) Beautiful one, please do not ask again and again. Now that I have seen the prince of the gopas, My heart has become enchanted.

 

1) Glancing at Me, passionate Krsna kissed a bending new lotus flower. Because of that hint My whole body is now violently trembling.

 

2) When He placed His hand on a pomegranate creeper bowed down with two round fruits, the splendor of My piety and the wealth of My peacefulness fled far away.

 

3) When I saw Him bite a red asoka flower as He continually joked, I at once forgot all My household duties.

 

Remarks/ Extra Information:

This is to be sung in Carnatic Raga Saurastri.

 

Srila Jiva Goswami explains that this song is Srimati Radharani’s reply to the previous song (Song 7 in Volume 6 of the Stavamala), “Radha Nigada Nijam Pada.”
