TRANSLATION

Refrain: O beautiful one, You are a pious young girl. Tell me: Why have You stolen the jewel that is the prince of Vraja's heart?

 

1) You are known as a pious girl. Don't hide another's wealth. The Lord who wears a garland of forest flowers now stays in a cave. O friend of Lalita, be merciful to Him.

 

2) O jewel of beautiful girls, return the handsome jewel at once! Only by Your great mercy can Lord Hari's friends become peaceful.

 

3) These two gopi messengers bow down before You. They roll on the ground, their hair in disarray. O slender girl, only give love to the eternal Supreme Personality of Godhead. Do not cheat Him.
