Jamuna Puline

jamuna puline, kadamba kanane ki herinu sakhi aja
amar shyama vamshidhari, maṇi manchopari, kare lila rasaraja

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!

mere to girdhar gopal dusaro na koi
jako sar mor mukat mere pati wohi

There is none other than Giridhar Gopal for me
Who wears the peacock feather on his turban, my husband

sugita nartane, saba sakh gaṇe, tushiche yugala dhane
takhon krishna lila heri, prakrti sundari, vistariche shobha vane

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.

ghare na jaiba, vane praveshiba, o lila rasera tare
ami tyaji kula laj, bhaja vrajaraja, vinoda minati kare

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.

[Song includes excerpts from Ami Jamuna Puline and the Mirabai bhajan Mere To Giridhar Gopal]
