Radha’s Wonderful Dancing


Srila Narahari Chakravarti
Bhakti-ratnäkara 5.3350-3353
(Kedära-räga)
nåtyati rädhä dhåti’-bhara-bhaïjiné gaja-gäminé
maìgalamaya héna malina komala kälindé-pulina
dhani dhani dhani nirmala bara sarasa pulina yäminé
Radha dances. Her graceful steps are like the gait of an elephant. Her movements break Krishna’s
peaceful composure to pieces. All glories! All glories! All glories to the place of Radharani’s dancing, the auspicious, pure soft sands on the bank of the Yamuna that are sweet like nectar.
bäjata mådutara mròaìga dhigi dhigi dhigi taga dhilaìga,
dhä dågu dågu jhendräà dåmi, dåmi dåmi dåmi dräminé
jhunu jhunu paga nüpura-dhvani, kiìkiëi kaöi jhini nini nini
jhaìkåta kara balaya jhanana, jhanana ati-rämiëé
The mròaìgas sweetly declare: "Dhigi dhigi dhigi taga dhilaìga, dhä dågu dågu jhendräà dåmi, dåmi dåmi dåmi dräminé." The anklets say: "Jhunu jhunu paga." The belt of bells affirms: "Jhini nini nini." While the bracelets say: "Jhanana jhanana."
praphullita mukha kaïja basana, daçanävali lalita hasana
nigadata taka thai, thai, thai taka sukha-dhäminé
su-lalita maëi-bhüçaëa gaëa géma dhünata kautuka ghana,
lola locanäïcala bharu, alaka kula laläminé
Her face is like a blossoming lotus. She smiles playfully; her teeth are splendid. Her delightful jangling jewel ornaments say: "taka thai thai thai taka." She is filled with bliss. Her neck sways to and fro and she casts restless sidelong glances. Her locks of hair and her eyebrows are graceful. She is decorated with glorious ornaments.
cämékara garava haraëa, parama madhura madhurima-tana
äbåta basanäïcala cala, jhalakata anupäminé
hastaka bahu-bhéti karata, çobhä-rasa-puïja jharata
narahari bahu nichani nirakhi, lajjita sura-käminé
She robs gold’s pride. She is most sweet. She moves the edge of her garment. She is glorious without peer. With a gesture of her hand she removes all fear. From her comes a flood of nectarean beauty. Gazing at her, the demigoddesses
become embarrassed at their own lack. Narahari Das earnestly worships her. ·
