(āmi) jamunā-puline, kadamba-kānane,
ki herinu sakhī! āja
(āmār) śyāma baṁśī-dhari, maṇi-mañcopari,
līlā kore’ rasa-rāja
(tāra) aṣṭa-dalopari, śrī-rādhā śrī-hari,
aṣṭa-sakhī parijana
(tāra) sugīta nartane, saba sakhī-gaṇe,
tuṣiche jugala-dhane
(takhan) kṛṣṇa-līlā heri’, prakṛti-sundarī,
bistāriche śobhā vane
(āmi) ghare nā jāibo, vane praveśibo,
o līlā-raser tare
(āmi) tyaji’ kula-lāja, bhaja braja-rāja,
vinoda minati kore’


1) Oh sakhi! My dear girlfriend! What have I seen today? In a kadamba grove on the banks of the Yamuna, a beautiful blackish boy holding a long flute named vamsi is seated upon a throne of jewels, performing His pastimes as the King of all transcendental mellows!

2) Situated upon the eight petals of the jeweled altar is Sri Radha and Sri Hari surrounded by Their attendants the eight chief gopis.

3) By singing sweet songs and by dancing nicely, all the gopis satisfy the treasured Divine Couple. Thus I am beholding Krsna’s pastimes with His beautiful female consorts expanding throughout the splendorous forest.

4) For the sake of the mellows of such pastimes, I will not go to my home, but I will instead enter into the forest. Renouncing all shyness due to fear of family members, just worship the Lord of Vraja. This is the humble submission of Bhaktivinoda.
