hari hari ki sela rahila mora buke
ki lagi rasika-raja kande sankirtana-majha
na bujhiya manu mano-dukha
rupa-koti-kama jini bidagadha-siromani
goloke bihare kutuhale
braja-raja-nandana gopikara prana-dhana
ki lagi lotaya bhumi-tale
sange bilasita yara radha candrabali ara
kata sata baraja-kisori
ebe pahum buka buka na dekhena nari-mukha
ki lagi sannyasi danda-dhari
chadi nagarali-besa bhrame pahum desa desa
patita cahiya ghare ghare
cintamani nija-gune uddharila jagaj-jane
balarama dasa bahu-dure
(Refrain) Alas! Alas! A javelin is plunged in my chest! Why does the king of the rasikas now weep in the midst of the holy chanting in sankirtana? I do not understand. My heart is filled with pain.
1) Why does He whose handsomeness defeats millions of Kamadevas, who is the crest jewel of the wise and playful, who enjoys blissful pastimes in Goloka, who is Nanda’s son, and who is the gopis’ life-treasure now roll about on the ground?
2) Formerly He enjoyed many pastimes with Radharani, Candravali, and how many hundreds of teenage vraja-gopis? Now the Lord will not even look at a woman’s face. Why did He become a sannyasi holding a danda?
3) Rejecting His garments of a playful lover, the Lord now wanders from place to place. Going from house to house, He visits the fallen people. With the cintamani jewels of His glorious virtues He delivers the people of the world. Only Balarama dasa is left behind.
This song is based on Raga Sindhura Gandhara.
