LYRICS

(1)

jhulato śyāma, gaurī bāma,

ānanda rańge mātiyā,

iṣata hāsita rabhasa keli, jhulāto saba sakhinī meli,

gāoto koto bhātiyā

 

(2)

hema maṇi-yuta bara hi ḍora, racita kusuma gandha bhora,

poroto bhramara mātiyā

navīna latāya joḍita ḍāla, vṛndā vipine śobhita bhālo

canda ujora rātiyā

 

(3)

nava ghana tanu dolāya śyāma, rāi sańge jhulato bāma,

taḍita jaḍita kātiyā

tārā-maṇi candra hāra, jhulita dolato gale dohāra

hilana duhuka gātiyā

 

(4)

vidhi koto dhiyā tā-thaiyā bola, bāje mṛdańga mohana rola,

tinā-nā tinā-nā tā-ti-yā

bheda pavana grāma pūra, ghora śabada jīla sura,

varaṇa nāhiko jātiyā

 

(5)

maṇi ābharaṇa kińkinī bańka, jhulane bājaye jhunura jhańka

jhana jhana jhana jhā-ti-yā

rādhā mohana caraṇe āśa, kevala bharasā uddhava dāsa

racita pūrito chāṭiyā

 

TRANSLATION

1) Syama swings with Gauri on His left, intoxicated by Jhulana’s ananda rasa! Yet with Their sliver-like smiles They arouse the mood for Ananga Keli! Radha’s sanginis push the Hindola and sing, displaying madhura gestures.

 

2) The hema-mani Hindola is decorated with fragrant flowers that allure hoards of bees.

 

3) Syama appears like a cloud, and Rai Rangini is like the brilliant lightning embracing His left side!

 

4) Radha-Syama wear candra hara (moon-necklaces) and tara-mani (star-jewels) that toss as Their bodies clasp together.

The mohana mrdangas play - bi-dhi, bi-dhik-a-di-ya and tini-na, tini-na-ta-ti-ya.

 

5) The gopis’ high-pitched singing traverses the sky to fill the surrounding area it’s simply indescribable! Yet their ornaments and kinkini malas tinkle as the jhunura (large karatalas) resound: jha-na, jha-na, jha-najha-ti-jha! Thus overwhelmed, Uddhava dasa takes shelter at Sri Radha-Mohana’s lotus feet.

 

Remarks/ Extra Information:
