jaya rādhā girivaradhārī

śrī nanda-nandana vṛṣabhānu dulārī

WORD FOR WORD TRANSLATION: Jaya Radha Giri Vara Dhari

 

TRANSLATION

1) All glories to Srimati Radharani and Giri Vara Dhari! He is the son of Nanda Maharaja. She is the darling of Maharaja Vrisabhanu.

 

2) He wears a peacock feather in His crown and a shining flute is placed on His lips. Her long braids appear brilliant and She has a gentle smile on Her face.


3) Wearing a garland of forest flowers, His neck is splendorous. Wearing a shimmering pearl necklace, Her neck is splendorous.


4) His yellow garments enchant the minds of everyone within the universe. Her blue garments display a brilliant effulgence.


5) Jeweled ankle bells resound on Their reddish lotus feet. The mind of Krsna Dasa is illuminated by Their splendorous presence.
