prāṇa-priya dukha śuni śaśi-mukhī

TRANSLATION

1) Hearing that her lover, more dear to her than life, was now unhappy, the moon-faced gopi asked about Him with broken words in a choked voice. Tears streamed from her glistening lotus eyes.

 

2) She dressed in fine garments, anointed her limbs with fragrances, abandoned her proud jealous anger, and went to meet Him. Fear of her kinsmen she left far behind. To her elders she gave no thought. Keeping a vigil there, Krsna stayed always in her heart.

 

3) Her great breasts and heavy hips forced her to walk very slowly. Her heart was filled with longings. The path way very long. She rebuked destiny for writing such things as her fate.

 

4) Filled with longings, the beautiful gopi walked. To dangers and obstacles she gave no thought. In the forest that beautiful passionate gopi finally met Lord Krsna. So says Govinda dasa.
