sakhī-gaṇa meli ye karala payāṇa
kautuke keli-kuṇḍe abagāna
jala-māha paiṭhala sakhī-gaṇa meli
duhu jana samara karala jala-keli
bichurala kuntala jarajara ańga
gahana samare de-i nāgara bhańga
sakhī-gaṇa beḍhala nāgara-canda
gobinda-dāsa heri raha dhandha
1) The gopis assemble and depart. They joyfully enter the waters of the pastime lake.
2) The gopis meet in the midst of the waters. The divine couple enjoys many water pastimes. Playfully They fight in the water.
3) Their hair becomes disheveled. Their limbs are filled with bliss. In a furious duel, the hero Krsna defeats His gopi beloved.
4) The gopis surround Krsna, the moon of heroes, and attack Him from all sides. Watching, Govinda dasa is filled with wonder.
This song is sung in Raga Dhanasri.
