The Special Sweetness of the Divine Couple
anupama, jori shyama shyama
Shri Shyama Shyam make an absolutely unique and incomparable pair.
ika soraha singara sajim ika, natavara bhesha lalama
Whereas Kishori Ji is bedecked with all the sixteen traditional ornaments, Shyamasundara wears the vividly striking attire and ornaments of a dramatic showman.
galabahim dai dou vrindavana, viharata athom yama
With Their arms around each other, the two engage in amorous pastimes, twenty-four hours a day (all eight yamas) in divine Vrindavan.
punja nikunjani manju rasa-rasa, khelata puranakama
In the various groves of Vrindavan, Shyama Shyam who are both perfectly self-content manifest beautiful pastimes of amorous love in the form of the rasa, accompanied by music, singing and dance.
sanaka samadhi chhamri sanakadik, bane vitapa brajadham
Even paramhamsas like Sanaka and so on, abandon their obsession for remaining absorbed in meditation on the Impersonal Brahm, and assume the form of trees to witness these transcendental pastimes of ultimate divine love.
atmarama ‘kripalu’ shyama ki, atma shyama nama
Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj says, "These pastimes are perfectly natural and spontaneous for Shyamasundara, who is atmarama, one who derives joy from the self alone, because His very Soul or Self is Shri Radha."
