sajani aba ki karabi upadeśa
kānu anurāge mora tanu mana bā
nā sahe dharama-bhara-leśa
rūpe bharata diṭhi sońari paraśa miṭhi
pulaka nā teja-i ańga
mohana muralī-bare śruti paripūrita
nā śune āpana parasańga
nāsikā se ańgera saurabha unamata
badane nānā laya āna nāma
naba naba guṇa-gaṇe bāndhala majhu mane
dharama rahaba kon ṭhāma
gṛha-pati tarajane guru-jana garajane
ko jāne upajaye hāsa
tahi eka manoratha yadi haye anurata
(Refrain) O gopi-friend, what shall I say to you? I have fallen in love with Krsna. My body and heart are now wild to attain Him. I have not the slightest fear of breaking earthly religious principles.
1) I filled my eyes with the sight of His handsome form. As I remember the sweetness of that form, the hairs of my body do not stop standing up with joy. The enchanting sound of His flute entered my ears. Now I do not hear anything else.
2) When my nose smelled the fragrance of His body, I became wild. My mouth will not speak any name but His. My heart is bound hg the ropes of His newer and newer virtues. Where will the rules of dharma stay within me now?
3) Govinda dasa asks: When her husband rebukes and her elders roar their disapproval, only a smile sprouts within her. Who understands her smile? If she is indeed enchanted by Krsna, only one desire must stay within her now.
This song is sung in Raga Dhanasri.
