sajala jalada ańga manohara

TRANSLATION

1) His charming limbs dark like monsoon clouds were so effulgent I could not even look upon them. His gently smiling reddish eyes spoke of the desires hidden in His heart.

 

2) Who is it I saw today? He was a playful boy under a keli-kadamba tree. My eyes were shy to gaze on His handsome form. I floated in an ocean of bliss.

 

3) He wore a garland of bakula flowers. A peacock feather decorated His hair. His reddish eyes were like restless kanjana birds. I fell into the terrible trap He had carefully set.

 

4) Shark-shaped earrings swung to and fro on His glistening-mirror cheeks. Kamadeva was reflected on His forehead. Govinda dasa thinks of Him in this way.
