hari bolbo āra madana mohana herabo go
ei rūpe vrajera pathe calabo go
jāba go vrajendra pure haba go gopikāra nūpura
tāńdera caraṇe madhura madhura bājabo go
vipine vinoda khelā sańgete rākhālera melā
tāńdera caraṇera dhūlā mākhabo go
rādhā-kṛṣṇera rūpa-mādhurī heraba du’nayana bhari
nikuñjera dvāre dvārī roibo go
vrajavāsī tomarā sabe ei abhilāṣa purāo ebe
āra kabe śrī-kṛṣṇera bāńśī śunabo go
e deha antima kāle rākhabo śrī-yamunāra jale
jaya rādhe govinda bale bhāsabo go
kahe narottama dāsa nā pūrilo abhilāṣa
āra kabe vraje vāsa korbo go
1) When will I be able to say “Hari” and see Madana Mohana? For this form, I will walk to Vraja.
2) When I enter the holy land of Braja, I will be the ankle-bells of the gopis’ feet. I will make sweet sweet sounds. I will behold the pastimes of the cowherd boys and will spread the dust from their feet and apply it to my body.
3) I will behold the vision sweet form of Radha and Krsna in my two eyes. I will remain at the gate of the forest of Vraja. O residents of Vrajabhumi, please fulfill my desire! When will I hear the sweet sound of the flute of Sri Krsna?
4) At the last moment of my life, I will place my body in the Yamuna River and float singing “Jaya Radha Govinda.” Narottama Dasa says, “I am unable to fulfill this desire. When will I become a resident of Vraja bhumi?”
This song is popularized by Mukunda Datta Dasa.
