  The spiritual master is receiving benediction from the ocean of mercy. Just as a cloud pours water on a forest-fire to extinguish it, so the spiritual master delivers the materially afflicted world by extinguishing the blazing fire of material existence. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master, who is an ocean of auspicious qualities.

  Chanting the holy name, dancing in ecstasy, singing, and playing musical instruments, the spiritual master is always gladdened by the sankirtana movement of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Because he is relishing the mellows of pure devotion within his mind, sometimes his hair stands on end, he feels quivering in his body, and tears flow from his eyes like waves. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

  The spiritual master is always engaged in the temple worship of Sri Sri Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa. He also engages his disciples in such worship. They dress the Deities in beautiful clothes and ornaments, clean Their temple and perform other similar worship of the Lord. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

  The spiritual master is always offering Kṛṣṇa four kinds of delicious food. When the spiritual master sees that the devotees are satisfied by eating bhagavat-prasada, he is satisfied. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

  The spiritual master is always eager to hear and chant about the unlimited conjugal pastimes of Radhika and Madhava, and their qualities, names, and forms. The spiritual master aspires to relish these at every moment. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

  The spiritual master is very dear, because he is expert in assisting the gopis, who at different times make different tasteful arrangements for the perfection of Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa conjugal loving affairs within the groves of Vrndavana. I offer my most humble obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

  vande guroḥ śrī-caraṇāravindam ||7||
  
  The spiritual master is to be honoured as much as the Supreme Lord, because he is the most confidential servitor of the Lord. This is acknowledged in all revealed scriptures and followed by all authorities. Therefore, I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master, who is a bona fide representation of Sri Hari.

  vande guroḥ śrī-caraṇāravindam ||8||
  
  By the mercy of the spiritual master one receives the benediction of Kṛṣṇa. Without the grace of the spiritual master, on cannot make any advancement. Therefore, I should always remember and praise the spiritual master. At least three times a day I should offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master.

  We take shelter of Lokanatha Prabhu, who was radiant with love. He was always busy in devotional service: hearing about Sri Sri Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa and serving Them in many ways.

  We take shelter of Lokanatha Prabhu. Who is now not plunged in the sweetness of service to the lotus feet of Vrndavana"s king and queen? Among these devotees charming Lokanatha Prabhu is the best.

  We take shelter of Lokanatha Prabhu. He became filled with grief when he saw the people were not eager to taste the sweetness of Kṛṣṇa"s pastimes. His only desire was to taste that sweetness.

  We take shelter of Lokanatha Prabhu, who completely renounced material sense gratification. A wise devotee named Narottama dasa Thakura understood the greatness of his mercy.

  We take shelter of Lokanatha Prabhu, who is not unfriendly to the sinful. By his mercy the foolish materialists have entered the path of spontaneous devotional service.

  These eight noble verses glorifying Lokanatha Gosvami reveal the highest goal of life. One who reads them with devotion will immediately attain the path of pure devotional service. He will serve Srimati Rādhārani.

  With splendid glances illuminating the path of pure love and with the splendid effulgence of his mercy chasing the deep darkness from the well of my heart, may Lokanatha Gosvami appear before me. Taking shelter of Him, we have found Govardhana Hill filled with the jewels of Kṛṣṇa"s divine pastimes.

  Devotional service to the lotus feet of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu is far beyond the perception of Lord Brahma, Lord Siva, Lord Sesha and the rest, but it is continually indulged in by the Lord"s own devotees, and is always available to other souls as well. Now I will begin my description of the process of manasi-seva (service to the Lord executed within the mind). This process is celebrated as continuous remembrance by the most virtuous sages. Therefore I offer my most respectful obeisances to the eternal daily life and pastimes of the Lord born in Navadvipa.

  At the end of the night (before sunrise) Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu gets up from His bed, washes His face and converses with His wife. In the morning, He is massaged with oil and bathes in the celestial Ganga river, and then worships Lord Visnu. In the forenoon period, He enjoys discussing topics about Lord Krishna with His devotees during visits to their homes. At midday, He enjoys pastimes in the gardens on the bank of the Ganga. In the afternoon, He wanders about the town of Navadvipa, sporting with all the residents. At dusk, He returns home to worship Lord Visnu and be with His family. In the evening, He goes with His associates to the courtyard of Srivasa Pandita to chant the Holy Names and dance in ecstasy. At night, He returns home to take rest. May this Gaura protect us all!

  At the end of the night, upon hearing the pleasant sounds made by many birds such as cuckoos, roosters and others, Sri Gauranga arises from His bed. With His wife, Sri Visnu-priya, He discusses many topics concerning the transcendental mellows of Their mutual loving affairs and thus They become very pleased. Then He gets up and goes to another room, wherein He sits upon a raised sitting place and is assisted by His devotees in washing His lotus face with nicely scented water. Thereafter, He very happily visits His mother, Sri Saci Devi, as well as other friends and relatives in the home. I meditate thus on the daily pastimes of Sri Gauranga.
  
  prātaḥ svaḥ-sariti sva-pārṣada-vṛtaḥ snātvā prasūnādibhis

  dvitraṁ cānya-gṛhe sukhaṁ svapiti yas taṁ gauram adhyemy ahaṁ ||4||
  
  In the morning, after sunrise, Gauranga goes with His associates to bathe in the holy river. While bathing, they also worship Mother Ganga by offering flowers, incenses and other offerings. They then come onto the bank of the river, where He is dressed with exquisite cloth and decorated with fresh flower garlands, sandalwood paste and other ornaments. Returning to His home in order to perform opulent worship of Lord Visnu, as well as other rituals, they later take prasadam. After washing His hand and mouth, Gauranga goes into another room and rests very happily for a little. I meditate thus on the daily pastimes of Gaura.
  
  pūrvāhne śayanotthitaḥ su-payasā prakṣālya vaktrāmbujaṁ
  bhaktaiḥ śrī-hari-nāma kīrtana-paraiḥ sārdhaṁ svayaṁ kīrtayan |
  bhaktānāṁ bhavane "pi ca sva-bhavane krīḍan nṛṇām vardhayaty
  ānandaṁ pura-vāsināṁ ya urudhā taṁ gauram adhyemy ahaṁ ||5||
  
  Upon the arrival of the forenoon period, Gauranga gets up from His nap and streches His body. Then He washes His lotus face with sweetly scented water. Meeting with His devotees, Who are all very fond of chanting Sri Harinama-kirtana, He personally tastes and relishes the chanting of the Holy Names. Thus He sports, sometimes in the homes of various devotees, and sometimes in His own home. In this way, He increases the ecstatic pleasure of all the townspeople so much that it attains limitless heights. I meditate thus on the daily pastimes of Gaura.
  
  madhyāhne saha-taiḥ sva-pārṣada-gaṇaiḥ saṅkīrtayad-īdṛśaṁ
  sādvaitendu-gadādharaḥ kila saha śrīlāvadhūta prabhuḥ |
  ārāme mṛdu-marutaiḥ śiśiritair bhṛṅga-dvijair-nādite
  svaṁ vṛndā-vipinaṁ smaran bhramati yas taṁ gauram adhyemy ahaṁ ||6||
  
  During the midday period, Gauranga continues to enjoy the performance of intensely enthusiastic chanting and dancing, surrounded by His own dear devotees such as the moon-like Advaita Acharya, Gadadhara Pandita and the divine madman Srila Nityananda Prabhu. Afterwards,they all wander throughout the gardens and groves on the bank of the Ganga, where they enjoy the sweet cooling breezes blowing over the river. Hearing the pleasant sounds of the bumblebees and the birds in those gardens, the Lord remembers His ecstatic pastimes as Rādhā and Krishna, which are occurring simultaneously in His own forest of Vrindavana. I meditate thus on the daily pastimes of Gaura.
  
  yaḥ śrīmān aparāhnake saha-ganais tais tādṛśaiḥ premavāṁs
  tādṛkṣu svayam apy alaṁ tri-jagatām śarmāṇi vistārayan |
  ārāmāt tata eti paura-janatā cakṣuś-cakoroḍupo
  mātrā dvāri mudekṣito nija-gṛham taṁ gauram adhyemy ahaṁ ||7||
  
  During the splendidly beautiful afternoon period, Gauranga and His devotees all become equally maddened in ecstatic love, and thus they expand ever-increasing waves of auspicious benefit that ripple all through-out the three worlds. In this mood, they leave the gardens and travel back toward His home. Along the way, He satisfies the eyes of all the townspeople, just as the moon satisfies the cakora bird with its moonbeams. Reaching home, Gauranga is met at the door by His mother and lavished with loving attentions. I meditate on the daily pastimes of Sri Gaura.
  
  yas tri-srotasi sāyam āpta-nivahaiḥ snātvā pradīpālibhiḥ
  puṣpādyaiś ca samarcitaḥ kalita-sat pattāmbaraḥ srag-dharaḥ |
  viṣṇos tat-samayārcanaṁ ca kṛtavān dīpālibhis taiḥ samaṁ
  bhuktvānnāni suvīṭikām api tathā taṁ gauram adhyemy ahaṁ ||8||
  
  At dusk, Gauranga bathes with His dear friends in the Ganga, the river who flows in the three parts. They devoutly worship the Ganga by offering ghee lamps, flowers and other articles. Afterwards, the Lord puts on fresh silken clothes and is adorned with flower garlands. Then, He worships Lord Vishnu at home by performing the evening arati ceremony, offering ghee lamps and other items. Later, He and His friends partake of the foodstuffs and betel nuts that were offered to Lord Vishnu. I thus meditate on the daily pastimes of Sri Gauranga.
  
  yaḥ śrīvāsa-gṛhe pradoṣa-samaye hy advaita-candrādibhiḥ
  sarvair bhakta-ganaiḥ samaṁ hari-kathā-pīyūṣam āsvādayan |
  premānanda-samākulaś ca cala-dhīḥ saṅkīrtane lampataḥ
  kartuṁ kīrtanam ūrdhvam udyama-paras taṁ gauram adhyemy ahaṁ ||9||
  
  In the evening time, Gauranga goes to the home of Srivasa Pandita, accompanied by Srila Advaita-Candra and other dear associates. Meeting with the multitude of His devotees, He tastes and relishes the nectar of topics about Hari, and His mind becomes most agitated with the ecstasies of pure love. Then, becoming very greedy to relish the chanting of the Holy Names, Gauranga orchestrates the performance of intensely jubilant sankirtana, which attains the summit of passionate glorification of these Holy Names. I thus meditate on the daily pastimes of Gauranga-Sundara.
  
  śrīvāsāṅgana āvṛto nija-ganaiḥ sārdhaṁ prabhubhyāṁ naṭann
  uccais tāla-mṛdaṅga-vādana-parair gāyadbhir ullāsayan |
  bhrāmyan śrīla-gadādhareṇa sahito naktaṁ vibhāty adbhutaṁ
  svāgāre śayanālaye svapiti yas taṁ gauram adhyemy ahaṁ ||10||
  
  Continuing well into the night, Gauranga dances and dances with Nityananda Prabhu in the courtyard of Srivasa, surrounded by His most intimate associates. His ecstatic singing is accompanied by the devotees who are expert in playing very loud rhytms on the mridanga drums. He wanders and dances with Sri Gadadhara in the most astonishing way troughout the night, until just before dawn. Then He returns to His own home, where He retires to His bedchamber and falls asleep. I thus meditate on the daily pastimes of Sri Gauranga-nataraja.
  
  śrī-gaurāṅga-vidhoḥ sva-dhāmani navadvīpe "ṣṭa-kālodbhavāṁ
  bhāvyāṁ bhavya-janena gokula-vidhor līlā-smṛter āditaḥ |
  līlāṁ dyotayad etad atra daśakaṁ prītyānvito yaḥ paṭhet
  taṁ prīṇāti sadaiva yaḥ karuṇayā taṁ gauram adhyemy aham ||11||
  Sri Gauranga, the Moon of Navadvipa, is manifest in His own abode during eight periods of each and every day. His pastimes during these periods should first be remembered by meditative devotees before they visualize the simultaneously-occurring pastimes of Sri Krishna, the Moon of Gokula. If someone lovingly reads or recites the Lord"s eternal daily pastimes as they are illuminated in the ten verses of this prayer, then the Lord is perpetually pleased with that person, by His own merciful compassion. I thus meditate on the daily pastimes of Sri Gaura.

  One day, Gadadhara Pandita heard the following words: O Gadadhara! I saw the most extraordinary person on the road to Gaya. His form was very handsome, and He roared just like a thundercloud. His eyes rained tears as if they had become rain clouds, and He rolled about on the ground, His voice choked up in the ecstasy of love of God. All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.
  
  alakṣita-carīṁ harīty udita-mātrataḥ kiṁ daśām asāv atibudhāgraṇīr atula-kampa-sampādikām | vrajann ahaha modate na punar atra śāstreṣv iti sva-śiṣya-gaṇa-veṣṭito vijayate śacī-nandanaḥ ||2||
  Oh, what kind of extraordinary state has He attained? Although He is the leader of the scholars, He no longer delights in study. When He holds class, surrounded by his pupils, if He hears the sound "Hari", He begins to tremble. All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.
  
  hā hā kim idam ucyate paṭha paṭhātra kṛṣṇaṁ muhur vinā tam iha sādhutāṁ dadhati kiṁ budhā dhātavaḥ | prasiddha iha varṇa-saṅghaṭita-samyag-āmnāyakaḥ sva-nāmni yad iti bruvan vijayate śacī-nandanaḥ ||3||
  Once during class Lord Caitanya interrupted a pupil and asked, "What are you saying? Instead of these verbs, you should constantly repeat the name of Kṛṣṇa, the most famous of all worlds according to the Vedas. O students, without Kṛṣṇa, what benefit can verbs give?" All glories to Lord Caitanya, the son of Saci-devi, who chants His own holy name in that way.
  
  navāmbuja-dale yad-īkṣaṇa-savarṇatā-dīrghate sadā sva-hṛdi bhāvyatāṁ sapadi sādhyatāṁ tat-padam | sa pāṭhayati vismitān smita-mukhaḥ sva-śiṣyān iti pratiprakaraṇaṁ prabhur vijayate śacī-nandanaḥ ||4||
  No matter what the particular topic of study was, He would smile and instruct His astonished grammar students in this way: "O students, please place the two large eyes of Sri Kṛṣṇa, which are as beautiful as two lotus petals, within your hearts, and please place His lotus feet within your hearts in the same way." All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi!
  
  kva yāni karavāṇi kiṁ kva nu mayā harir labhyatāṁ

  iti dravati ghūrṇate kalita-bhakta-kaṇṭhaḥ śucā
  sa mūrcchayati mātaraṁ vijayate śacī-nandanaḥ ||5||
  
  At other times, the Lord would say, "O friend, where shall I go, and what shall I do to attain Lord Hari?" Who will show Him to Me? Please tell me who will help me in this way". Speaking thus, the Lord ran here and there and rolled about on the ground. Their throats filled with grief, the stricken devotees called out to Him. In this way the Lord caused His mother Saci-devi, to faint. All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi!
  
  smarārbuda-durāpayā tanu-ruci-cchaṭā-cchāyayā tamaḥ kali-tamaḥ-kṛtaṁ nikhilam eva nirmūlayan | nṛṇāṁ nayana-saubhagaṁ diviṣadāṁ mukhais tārayan lasann adhidharaḥ prabhur vijayate śacī-nandanaḥ ||6||
  The reflection of the splendid beauty of the Lord is not attainable even by millions of Cupids, and with that splendour the Lord uproots the darkness of the ignorance of the age of Kali. Descending with the principal demigods, the Lord delighted the eyes of the residents of this earth planet. All glories to that effulgent Lord, the son of Saci-devi.
  
  ayaṁ kanaka-bhūdharaḥ praṇaya-ratnam uccaiḥ kiran kṛpāturatayā vrajann abhavad atra viśvambharaḥ | yad akṣi patha-sañcarat-suradhunī-pravāhair nijaṁ paraṁ ca jagad ārdrayan vijayate śacī-nandanaḥ ||7||
  
  He is like a golden mountain that scatters jewels of pure love of God. Because of His great mercy He wandered on this earth planet. That Lord, known as Visvambhara, the maintainer of the universe, inundated His own universe with the currents of the Ganges river of tears of love of Godhead flowing from His eyes. All glories to that Lord, the son of Saci-devi.
  
  gato"smi madhurāṁ mama priyatamā viśākhā sakhī gatā nu bata kiṁ daśāṁ vada kathaṁ nu vedāni tām | itīva sa nijecchayā vraja-pateḥ sutaḥ prāpitas tadīya-rasa-carvaṇāṁ vijayate śacī-nandanaḥ ||8||
  
  Lord Kṛṣṇa said to Uddhava: "What is the condition of Srimati Rādhārani now that I have come to Mathura? Please tell me so that I may understand." In order to fulfil His own desire, Lord Kṛṣṇa, the son of the king of Vraja, has descended as Lord Caitanya to taste the mellows of His own devotional service
  
  idaṁ paṭhati yo"ṣṭakaṁ guṇa-nidhe śacīnandana prabho tava padāmbuje sphurad-amanda-viśrambhavān | tam ujjvala-matiṁ nija-praṇaya-rūpa-vargānugaṁ vidhāya nija-dhāmani drutam urīkuruṣva svayam ||9||
  
  O Lord, O son of Saci-devi, O ocean of transcendental qualities, please place in Your abode all who read these eight verses and are full of faith in Your lotus feet. Please accept those readers whose intelligence is pure and who follow in the footsteps of the great devotees headed by Srila Rupa Govami, who are full of great love for You.

  "Svarupa Damodara, he is yours." With these words affectionately marked with a smile and making Raghunatha dasa so happy the hairs of his body stood erect, Lord Gauracandra gave a sign of His deep love in that secluded place. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

  "Svarupa Damodara, how did Rupa Gosvami understand the wound in My heart? Read this verse he wrote about it on this palm leaf." Speaking these words, the Lord made Rupa Gosvami"s heart tremble with ecstatic love. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

  "Svarupa Damodara, among these aspiring devotees you have not selected one worthy to explain the most exalted parakiya-rasa." With a glance the Lord then singled out the astonished Sanatana Gosvami. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

  "Svarupa Damodara, I made the entire universe chant Lord Hari"s name. Why can I not make this son of Sivananda Sena chant?" By speaking these words the Lord transformed that child into a great poet. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

  "Svarupa Damodara, let the lotus-eyed gopis describe the nectar stream that flows in Vraja. My ears yearn for that stream, which is born from intense jealous love. Here is the jealous goddess of fortune! Look!" Speaking in this way, may Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

  "Svarupa Damodara, you are a temple of nectar! You are the home of My happiness! Here in Jagannatha Puri you are My Vraja!" Speaking these words and embracing him, the Lord overwhelmed Svarupa Damodara, making the hairs of his body stand up in ecstasy. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

   "Svarupa Damodara, what did I see?"
  "Where, my Lord?"
  "In a dream at night."
  "Tell me, what was it, my Lord."
  "It was a youth that was a monsoon cloud."
  "What did He do? Do You see Him now?"
  "He has not left My sight."
  May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

   "Svarupa Damodara, why does smiling Kṛṣṇa not come before My eyes? O Friend, why does He not extend His hand to Me?" Again and again He runs, stumbles, sighs, and trembles. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart!

  Lord Caitanya makes a saintly devotee who daily reads these eight wonderful and confidential verses glorifying Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and filled with the nectar pastimes of the Lord with Svarupa Damodara Gosvami taste the sweetness of deep love for His lotus feet. He makes him a personal associate of Svarupa Damodara.

  Srimati Rādhārani said: Beloved, in a dream I saw a river shore like the Yamuna here. There were many expert dancers as in Vrndavana. There were mrdangas and other instruments. There was a brahmana jewel as splendid as lightning who was tossing the universe into an ocean of pure love.

  Sometimes He calls out: "O Kṛṣṇa!" and sometimes He sighs: "O Rādhā, where are You?" Sometimes He falls to the ground, sometimes He acts wildly, losing all composure, and sometimes He dances ecstatically with His loving associates. He has made all the residents of this world, from the blades of grass up to Lord Brahma, loudly call out the name of Kṛṣṇa.

  As I gazed at Him, My intelligence became bewildered. If He is my lover, where am I? If He is I, where is My lover? If He is My lover, where am I? As I slept, I became more and more bewildered.

  Sri Kṛṣṇa said: O inquisitive girl, when I showed You Narayana and My other forms You were not surprised. Why does this brahmana surprise You? Why does He bewilder You so You say "Who is He?"
  
  iti procya preṣṭhāṁ kṣaṇam atha parāmṛṣya ramaṇo hasann ākūtajñaṁ vyanudad atha taṁ kaustubha-maṇim | tathā dīptaṁ tene sapadi sa yathā dṛṣṭam iva tad vilāsānāṁ lakṣmaṁ sthira-cara-gaṇaiḥ sarvam abhavat ||5||
  
  After speaking these words to His beloved, the smiling lover, Kṛṣṇa, touched His Kaustubha jewel. The jewel, understanding the Lord"s intent, glowed and then showed all the same pastimes and all the moving and non moving entities She saw in her dream.
   vibhāvyātha proce priyatama mayā jñātam akhilaṁ tavākūtaṁ yat tvaṁ smitam atanuthās tat tvam asi saḥ | sphuṭaṁ yan nāvadīr yad abhimatir atrāpy aham iti sphurantī me tasmād aham api sa evety anumime ||6||
  Srimati Rādhārani reflected for a moment and said: Beloved, I know what is in Your heart now that makes You smile. You are He. What You have said and thought is now clear to Me, and therefore I think I am also He.
  
  yad apy asmākīnaṁ rati-padam idaṁ kaustubha-maṇiṁ pradīpyātraivādīdṛśad akhila-jīvān api bhavān | sva-śaktyāvirbhūya svam akhila-vilāsaṁ pratijanaṁ nigadya premābdhau punar api tad ādhāsyasi jagat ||7||
  Making this Kaustubha jewel, which is so delightful to Us, shine in this way, You have revealed Yourself to all living entities. By Your own transcendental potency You will appear, display Your pastimes, teach everyone, and again plunge the world into the ocean of pure love.
  
  yad uktaṁ gargeṇa vraja-pati-samakṣaṁ śruti-vidā bhavet pīto varṇaḥ kvacid api tavaitan na hi mṛṣā | ataḥ svapnaḥ satyo mama ca na tadā bhrāntir abhavat tvam evāsau sākṣād iha yad anubhūto"si tad ṛtam ||8||
  In the king of Vraja"s presence, the learned Vedic scholar Gargacarya said that You will appear with a yellow complexion. He did not lie. This dream of Mine is true. It is not an illusion. In this dream I have directly seen You.
  
  pibed yasya svapnāmṛtam idam aho citta-madhupaḥ sa sandeha-svapnāt tvaritam iha jāgarti sumatiḥ | avāptaś caitanyaṁ praṇaya-jaladhau khelati yato bhṛśaṁ dhatte tasminn atula-karuṇāṁ kuñja-nṛpatiḥ ||9||
  If the bumble-bee of the reader"s mind drinks the nectar of this Svapna-vilasamrta, then that intelligent reader will quickly awaken from the dream of materialistic doubt. Such a reader will attain Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He will sport in the ocean of pure love. He will attain the peerless mercy of the king of Vrndavana.

  He gave to a dear friend the incomparable jewel of Bhagavad-gita, and lovingly He gave to Uddhava the ultimate truth of the Vedas. He gave to the saintly gopis, who thought Him more dear than life, the knowledge of the transcendental mellows. May Nanda"s son, who possesses all knowledge, be pleased with me.

  He brought an offensive hunter Jara to Vaikuntha in his own body. He abandoned His own proud relatives, even though the sruti declares that they were already liberated and had eternal spiritual bodies. May Nanda"s son, who possesses all renunciation, be pleased with me.

  Although He is unborn, He takes birth. Although He is affectionate, He is aloof from everything. Although He enjoys pastimes, he is inactive. He is both all-pervading and limited. He possesses and does not possess ego and possessiveness. May that Supreme Personality of Godhead, the son of Nanda, who is full of all opulences, be pleased with me.

   All glories to Her worshipable lotus feet splendid with a host of toenail moons! Decorated with tinkling nupura and hamsaka anklets, and anointed with red lac, they delight Hari.

   The soles of Her feet bear the auspicious marks of conchshell, lotus, earring, vine and chariot. They are soft and red, worshiped with eloquent prayers, and fulfill the desires of Acyuta. One should meditate on them in this way.

   "Beloved, let the hungry black bumblebee lick the honey of this incomparable lotus flower!" Because of these words of Acyuta, She made the cooling moonlight shine on Her lotus face and curling locks of hair.

   Pushing against Him, She stopped the advances of powerful Madhava"s hands. Her beautiful camphor-anointed lips were splendid with the syllables Ṅo, No!"

  The greatest poets and philosophers explain that the amorous pastimes of Krsna, the dearmost friend and the very life breath of the young girls of Vrndavana, are the best of all His pastimes. Lord Brahma, Lord Siva and all the demigods glorify these incomparable pastimes, which are full of all transcendental opulences.

  "O Radhika, I am famous as the most generous person. How is it then, that Your friends accuse Me of stealing the nectar of Your lips? If You think I have stolen, then I place My moonlike face before You, and You may reclaim this nectar. Please drink as much as You like until You have been sufficiently reimbursed!" May Krsna, who, in a secluded place joked with Radharani in this way, grant auspiciousness to us.

  O bliss of Gokula, O expert Krsna delighted by the association of Radha, who moves through the garden of madhavi creepers like a graceful elephant, O playful Krsna attached to amorous pastimes, O attractor of the affectionate young gopis, O destroyer of the gopis" calm composure, O Krsna who is not bewildered by the gopis" playful contrariness, O Krsna who pierces the heart of affectionate Radha with the arrows of Your passionate sidelong glances, O performer of limitless pastimes, O Krsna who carries the sweet insignia of Radharani"s bites, O Krsna whose sidelong glance is the superlative of playfulness, O Krsna whose dark cloud-like bodily luster illuminates the dark caves of Govardhana Hill, O Krsna who delights in removing the belt worn by Your beloved Radha, who is dressed in blue garments, O Krsna who is pleased by Radha"s playful contrariness, O Krsna whose bodily hairs stand up in ecstasy when You begin the fierce amorous battle with the expert warrior Radha, O Krsna please protect me.

  The two cakravaka birds of beautiful Radha" breasts are as splendid and lovely as two moons. May Krsna, who is expert at relishing transcendental mellows, and who submerges those cakravaka birds in the deep lake of His chest, and who then again brings them up out of that water, bless us with bliss.

  Frightened by the crushing attacks of Radha"s breasts, which are the Kamadeva"s pride, the Kaustubha solider flees Krsna"s chest to take shelter of His neck. Embraced by Krsna, Radha sighs heavily from Her pale lips. May that Krsna delight my eyes.

  O Krsna who is glorified by the auspicious prayers sung by sweetly buzzing bees, O Krsna who wears a garland of lotus petals, O Krsna whose amorous pastimes delight the gopis, O Krsna whose arms have become the sash about the gopis" waists, O Krsna who mischievously places a hand under the undergarments of Radha, the most beautiful of the young gopis, O Krsna who has become fatigued by the continued resistance of contrary Radha, O Krsna whose heart is the dancing arena of the most intense bliss, O Krsna whose waist is like a handsome pillar of auspiciousness, O Krsna whose opulent belt makes a pleasant tinkling sound, O Krsna whose charming face is decorating with slightly moving locks of hair, O Krsna who wears a pearl necklace during the rasa-dance, O Krsna the sharpened arrows of whose fingernails attack the perspiration covered breasts of Radha, O Krsna the solider of whose necklace easily disperses the flower garland on the waterpot-like breasts of Radha, O Krsna whose hair is pleasantly disarrayed by performing amorous pastimes, O Krsna whose couch is decorated with beautiful flowers, O Krsna whose bracelets make a pleasant tinkling sound, O Krsna whose embraces make slender Radha tremble with happiness, O Krsna who has become maddened with the pleasure of amorous pastimes, O Krsna who delights the hearts of the devotees, O Krsna who embraces the goddess of fortune, O Krsna who is worshipped by the goddess of fortune, O Krsna whose lips appear very beautiful, bitten by the goddess of fortune, O Krsna who fills the devotees" hearts with divine love, O Krsna who is like a nectarean ocean of mercy, please appear within my hardened heart.

  O Krsna, as Your beloved Radha walks in the forest to meet You at the appointed place, You approach Her. Unobserved by Her, You walk a little ahead of Her. Clearing the obstructing creepers and sprinkling the way with flowers, You make the forest path very pleasant for Her to traverse. As You do this You carefully erase Your lotus footprints with Your own hands, so She will not understand that You have done this. O Giridhari, who is overwhelmed with love for the devotees, I offer my respectful obeisances unto You.

  Krsna spoke the following words to Subala: "Seeing My glance touch Her breasts, beautiful-faced Radha timidly covered Her head with the edge of her loosened cloth, and concealed Her breasts with Her bodice, thus obtaining the jewel of my mind." May that Hari protect us.

  Krsna spoke the following words to Radha: "O My beloved, as You shower Me with the nectar of these smiling sidelong glances, some of the nectar falls down, bathing the golden siva-linga of Your breasts. O young girl with splendidly beautiful teeth, why do You not worship this siva-linga by offering to it the lotus flower of Acyuta"s hand? If You do this, the deity will certainly fulfill all Your desires!" We pray that this Krsna, the lover of Radha, may splendidly appear before us.

  As Radha walked along the path she thought in Her heart: "I hope Krsna will stop Me as I walk here..." When Her eyes reached Madhava"s lotus feet She found Herself unable to either proceed or turn back. As She pretended to shrink from Krsna, He fixed His lotus gaze on the beauty of Her hips. I pray that Madhava may fill me with transcendental bliss.

O Krsna who places a lovely ornament on the forehead of Radha, O Krsna whose auspicious restlessly moving hands are decorated with pleasantly tinkling bracelets, O Krsna who brings intense eternal bliss to the devotees" hearts, O Krsna who is the sweet honey relished by Nanda Maharaja"s heart, O Krsna who is the supreme monarch of Vrndavana forest, please grant auspiciousness to us.

I pray that my heart may be able to see that moon of Krsna"s face to its full satisfaction.

He did not frighten Her by revealing His presence, but simply gazed at her breasts and underarms with longing eyes. All glories to that Hari.

  After concluding the rasa-dance, proud Radha, indicated by Her girl-friends, with both hands carefully adjusted and tightened Her belt and bodice in order to violently defeat Her lover in the next portion of Their pastimes. When Hari saw Her beauty in this way, He considered that His eyes had just then attained their supreme perfection. I pray that Hari may fulfill the desire in my heart.

  "When I said to Radha, "My dear friend, please decorate Your ear with this blue lotus flower", She looked at me with Her eyes devoid of mascara. She was not able to see me or hear my words." When Krsna herd these words spoken by Vrnda, He became distressed, and overwhelmed with feelings for His absent beloved. May that Krsna be prosperous.

  O Divine Couple, as You perform pastimes Your ears become drowned by the pleasant tinkling "jhanat-jhanat" sounds of ankle-bells, the "sanat-sanat" sounds of repeated sighs, and the "jhalat-jhalat" sounds of wandering bees who carry the aromatic pollen of various flowers. O Krsna, I pray that You may become like a splendid gem within the jewellery-case of my heart.

  O Krsna who was bitten by beautiful Radha during Your amorous struggle, O Krsna who perfectly understands the character of Your beloved Radha, O Krsna who causes Radha"s bracelets to sweetly tinkle as You both perform pastimes in a concealed grove, O lotus-eyes Krsna who takes rest in a little cottage in Vrndavana forest, please appear before me!

  As He chews tasty tambula, Krsna"s beautiful face shining brightly. Yellow garments on His attractive body destroy the pride of the best ornaments.

  As Krsna walks on the path of Vraja, He wears a lowered red turban, decorated with a tilted peacock feather. He moves His neck with charming grace, and His smiling face is decorated with the lovely splendor of His teeth. His left arm is placed around a friend"s shoulder as they whisper in each other"s ear words concerning Radha, who is about to pass them on the other side of the road. All glories to these secret conversations!

  O Krsna, as You enjoy transcendental pastimes with Radha Your necklaces of pearls move about as if dancing, Your flower bracelets become broken, You both fill the air with a sweet fragrance, Your ankle-bells tinkle, You uncover Radha"s breasts and vigorously attack them, Her hair becomes loosened, and both Your bodies become decorated with small drops of perspiration. O Krsna who is more charming and delightful than Kamadeva, we simply pray that You eternally continue enjoying pastimes in this way.

  May worshipable Krsna, whose face is as splendid as the moon, who is bold and courageous in enjoying amorous pastimes, and who is the object of the beautiful-eyed Radha"s kisses, may appear before my eyes. O Krsna, Your beautiful hands are like the elephants" trunks, and when You angrily moved Your hands during the lovers" quarrel, those hands were passionately grasped by the beautiful young gopis. O Krsna, Your transcendental pastimes are the abode of all sweetness, and hearing about these pastimes fulfills the desires of the entire world. Your servants remain always rapt in remembering these pastimes. O Krsna, beautiful Radha, the best of the gopis, always meditates on Your limitless auspicious qualities, which are the proper object of glorification in this world. O Krsna, let me glorify Your two lotus feet, which are decorated with glittering ornaments, and which are the abodes of all beauty. These two lotus feet free the residents of Vraja from all fear. O Krsna, I pray that my heart may always worship the exalted pastimes You expertly perform on the shore of the Yamuna. O Krsna I pray that You may appear before us with Your dear, jubilant cowherd friend Subala. O Krsna I pray that You appear before us smiling, laughing, and speaking many nectarean joking words. O Krsna, I pray that You may appear before us, with the two passionate snakes which are Your arms embraced by beautiful Radha. O Krsna, all glories to You who expertly cast roving sidelong glances at the young gopis, completely destroying their chaste tranquility, even though these glances remain unobserved by Your cowherd friends. O Krsna who resides with great splendor and glory in the forest of Vrndavana, beautiful-eyed Radha yearns to associate with You and serve You. O Krsna, by glancing at You with passionate, dancing eyes, Radha offers Herself to You. O Krsna, please meet with the fair-complexioned beautiful-eyed passionate gopis, and perform pastimes in their company. O Krsna, nothing is superior to Your unparalleled, blissful, amorous pastimes. O Krsna, Radha has become afraid of Your delightfully charming hands, decorated with sharp nails. O Krsna by enjoying amorous pastimes with beautiful Radha You protect Her from the arrows of Kamadeva. O Krsna, You are the eternal treasury where the celebrated superexcellent nectarean mellows of madhura-rasa are eternally kept. O Krsna, please decorate Yourself with Your two makara-shaped earrings, which are expert at dancing and moving in Kamadeva"s battlefield. O Krsna, You are the sole shelter of the saintly devotees of Vraja, who constantly yearn to attain the bliss of Your direct service. O Krsna, O supremely merciful and opulent one, O Krsna who performs transcendental pastimes, I pray that my thoughts may be always fixed upon You. O Krsna, whose delicate lips, reddened with tambula, are the nectar which beautiful-eyed Radha yearns to taste, O Krsna please delight my heart by fixing it upon the splendid flowers of Your affectionate smiles. O merciful Krsna who enjoys ever-fresh pastimes, O Krsna who is like a great palace of righteousness and wisdom, all glories to You.

  The cloud of Krsna performs the most beautiful, enchanting pastimes filled with the sweetest rasa. This cloud inundates the countries of the minds and hearts of the affectionate devotees with the monsoon of wonderful qualities. I pray that this glistening blue cloud, illumined by the lightning flash known as His beloved Radha, may delight us with transcendental happiness.

  These prayers continually bring transcendental happiness and divine love to the saintly devotees, who are like flowing rivers of nectarean devotion for Radha and Madhava. I pray that Giridhari, whose luster is like the splendor of the king of monsoon clouds, may at once remove all the faults in the beginning, middle, and end of these verses.

  I eternally place the pollen of Srila Rupa Gosvami"s lotus feet upon my forehead. Even the slightest scent of those lotus feet makes the bumble-bee of my mind race to the blossoming desire-tree of Krsna"s feet. That desire-tree overwhelms me with it"s nectar and makes me completely forget the powerful liquor of material existence. The tiniest drop of that tree"s nectar attracts the greatest sages, and fills them with transcendental thirst.

   O Nandisvara Hill, O king of mountains, please be kind to those who glorify you by reading these eight verses, thirsty only for the nectar of Kṛṣṇa"s lotus feet. Even if such readers are infested with hundreds of sinful desires, please make them full of great divine love.

   When Brahma and Uddhava, the crest jewels of devotees, saw the intense sweetness here, they begged to take birth here even as a blade of grass. For this reason I pray to always reside in Vrndavana.

   Although only five yojanas in circumference, bounded by Bhandiravana, Govardhana Hill and the rasa-dance arena, it is unlimited in transcendental opulence. May I always reside in Vrndavana.

   As it was held above the earth it became so filled with happines by experiencing the softness of its beloved Kṛṣṇa"s lotus hand it did not even know it was being struck by Indra"s thunderbolt. May Govardhana Hill fulfill my desires.

   Trying to collect a toll, Kṛṣṇa quarrelled there with King Vrsabhanu"s daughter. The personified Vedas yearn to listen to that quarrel. May Govardhana Hill fulfill my desires.

  Does this fragrance come from the musk deer who relax there, or from Kṛṣṇa who always plays there? Or is it Govardhana"s own natural scent? May Govardhana Hill fulfill my desires.

   Without taking shelter of the feet of the hill that is the best of Hari"s servants and full of prema for the divine King and Queen, how is it possible to attain bhakti? May Govardhana Hill fulfill my desires.

   What austerities did the hundreds of thousands of eternal holy places perform to please Kṛṣṇa and obtain from Him the benediction to live at Kṛṣṇa-kunda, the rarest holy place? Let us always glorify this Kṛṣṇa-kunda.

   If even the Arista demon was able to enter Kṛṣṇa-kunda, then crooked hearted persons such as us may also be live there. Let us glorify residence at Kṛṣṇa-kunda which, on the pretext of death, grants a wonderful form of liberation.
   go-vadhasya niṣkṛtis triloka-tīrtha-koṭibhī rādhayety avādi tena tā hariḥ samāhvayat | yatra pārṣṇi-ghāṭa-je mamajja ca svayaṁ mudā tatra kṛṣṇa-kuṇḍa eva saṁsthitiḥ stutāstu naḥ ||3||
  
   When Rādhā said, "To atone for killing a cow (Aristasura) You must visit millions of holy places in the three worlds," Kṛṣṇa called all the holy places and then happily bathed in the lake that sprang from His heel. Let us always glorify this Kṛṣṇa-kunda.

   At some holy places one becomes free from all sins, at others one becomes free from the bondage of karma, at others one attains Brahman happiness, and at others one attains residence in Visnuloka. Let us glorify residence at Kṛṣṇa-kunda, where without any effort one attains the jewel of prema for Kṛṣṇa.

   Surrounded by madhavi, mango, kadamba and nipa trees, Kṛṣṇa-kunda filled with the sweet sounds of bumblebees, cakravakas, cuckoos and other birds. At night there are millions of inconceivable sweet fragrances. Let us always glorify this Kṛṣṇa-kunda.

   With gopi friends the two crowns of youth enjoyed many pastimes there. They rode on a swing, sweetly and wonderfully danced, sang, and enjoyed the conversations, amusing flower-battle and drinking the honey-wine. Let us always glorify this Kṛṣṇa-kunda.

   The district of Mathura, Kṛṣṇa"s birthplace, is more sacred and difficult to attain than Vaikuntha. The forest where He lived is more sacred still, and the hill lifted by His hand is more sacred than that. But the most sacred place is Hari"s supremely purifying lake. Let us always glorify this Kṛṣṇa-kunda.

   Bending fearsome archer"s bows of Her restless eyebrows again and again, and shooting sharp reddened arrows of Her sidelong glances, Rādhā, who is expert at tasting the nectar of embraces, again and again rebukes Her beloved.
  
  mukham atipūtam idaṁ yuvati vraja-rasanārasitam akhaṇḍam |

   Resting on the bed of amorous pastimes, charming and playful Rādhā gently smiles.
