mādhaba tohe ki śikhāyaba āna

gorī ālāpi  śyāma naṭa sańcaru

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) O Krsna, what more can I say to You? You are the most wise. You are the graceful dark dancer. With these melodies You call the fair gopis.

 

1) How many melodies do You play on the flute placed to Your flower-petal lips? Leaving their homes, the saintly gopis run to You. They have no power to stay away.

 

2) Putting down the flute, now You speak sweetly. No one is like You. Meeting the gopis closely, You declare that You are in debt to them.

 

3) Thus You speak to the saintly gopis. In this secluded place You will embrace them to Your heart. The saintly devotees are not shy to praise these pastimes. So speaks Govinda dasa.
