LYRICS:

(1)

manera ānanda, sakhi manda manda,

jhulāyato duhuń sukhe

vega avaśeṣa, pāi avakāśe,

tāmbūla deyai mukhe

 

(2)

āra sakhīgaṇa, sugandhi candana,

parāgādi loiyā kore

nāgara nāgari, ańgera upari,

varikhe ānanda bhare

 

(3)

kona sakhīgaṇa, koroye nartana

mohana mṛdańga bāy

vividha yantrete, rāga tāna tāte

ālāpi susvare gāy

 

(4)

heriyā vihvala, deva nārī kula,

ūrdhva-pathe sabe rahe

puṣpa variṣaṇa, kore anukṣaṇa

e dāsa uddhava kohe

 

TRANSLATION

1) Blissfully the sakhis reduce the speed of the swing, to the pleasure of the Divine Pair. Now that the swing has slowed down they find the opportunity to place betel leaves in Their mouths.

 

2) Other sakhis take fragrant sandal paste and flower pollen within their hands and blissfully shower this over the bodies of our Hero and Heroine.

 

3) Some sakhis dance and play enchanting mrdanga-drums, singing along with the rhythms and tunes of different musical instruments with nice voices.

 

4) Seeing this, the goddesses in the sky become ecstatic as they hover in the sky. Uddhava dasa says: They are showering flowers all of the time!

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

This song is sung in Raga Jaya Jayanti in Ek Tala.
