TRANSLATION

(Refrain) The beautiful gopi looked at the wonderful arrangement. Yearning to meet Krsna, she took no care that the ornaments were proper or not.

 

1) With both hands she carefully placed jewel anklets on her feet. She placed a necklace on her neck and an ornament on her head.

 

2) The night was dark like black kajjala. The clouds thundered and rained. Snakes slithered on the path. Leaving her home, she walked all alone.

 

3) She was filled with longing. Kama was her only companion. She did not care if she walked on the path or on the places where there was no path. Govinda dasa says: This vraja-gopi certainly met Lord Krsna.
