suna gopī hari kau sandesa

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) Listen, gopis, to Hari’s message!

 

1) Meditate on Him, as He rests in all places: this is the eternal lesson of the Lord.

 

2) He is unknowable, eternal, all-pervading and dwells in each person.

 

3) Fix your mind on Him resolutely and bring the lotus feet of Krsna into your heart.

 

4) By this means, you will lose your lovesickness and find devotion and union to the Supreme Lord.

 

5) There is no salvation without true spiritual knowledge, as the scriptures have declared this.

 

6) Hearing Madhava’s unbearable message, the gopis were greatly distressed.

 

7) Sura Dasa says, “Who can speak of their lovesick pangs of separation as tears flow freely from their eyes?”

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

This song is rendered in Raga Madhuvanti.
