Prema Rasa Madira, 1

Viraha Madhuri

The Special Sweetness of Love in Separation 

 

ankhiyan, sakhi! ya rupa lubhani

"O sakhi! My eyes are completely enchanted with Shyamasundara’s beauty. 

dekhana chahata kamala dala lochana, sunana chahata mridubani

Now they wish to see nothing but my lotus-eyed Beloved. My ears crave to hear His sweet words.  

haun samujhavata hari thaki pai, ina ne eka na mani

I have tried to make them understand, but they do not pay heed in the slightest. 

nahin sukhata ekahum chhina kaham sakhi! ina ankhiyana ko pani

Tears do not cease flowing even for a moment, from these eyes. 

taji dini trina sama ina nigurina, loka-laja, kula-kani

These wretched eyes have abandoned all sense of worldly shame, family honour and respectability." 

jo 'kripalu' honi thi ho gai, aba ka honi jani

Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj says, "Whatever was to happen has happened. Now what can be done?"
