Sri Geet-Panchak

Gopi-prem is like an ocean, and when there is an exultation in this ocean, it brings forth a divine nectarine ras called ‘Sri Sri Geet-Panchak’. It literally means ‘Five Songs’ viz. Sri Venu-geet (Song of the Flute), Sri Gopi-geet (Song of the Gopis), Sri Yugal-geet (song of the Divine Couple), Sri Bhramar-geet (Song of the black-bee) and Sri Uddhav-geet (Song of Uddhav). Srila Ananta das Babaji Maharaj who is the Mahant and Pandit of Sri Sri Radhakund has compiled these five songs from Srimad Bhagavatam into a highly relishing bouquet having divine fragrance. We beg the readers to read the introduction thoroughly since Prabhupad Sri Binodkishore Goswami has explained nicely the essence of each song.

Translating this exquisite text is proving a most pleasurable experience and we hope our dear sweet readers too will enjoy it very much. Jay Sri Radhe !!

सखी-वचन सुनकर         चन्द्रमुखी लजाकर

                चेहरे को आंचल में है छुपाती,

कानू के प्यार                को करके याद,

                राह में फिर से है चलती । Read the rest of this entry »

आज वन में आनन्द रसिया

खेल-मस्ती  में मस्त होकर               राखाल झूमे विभोर होकर

                        और दूर चलीं गयीं गैया । Read the rest of this entry »

Translation

 

O King! Sri Krishna, surrounded by countless cattle and Gopa boys entered Sri Vrindâban which had beautiful lakes overflowing with clean sharad-water[1]. Vrindâban was fragrant with fully bloomed flowers such as the lotus, and soft perfume-laden breeze was always blowing there.1.

 

Madhupati[2] Sri Krishna was accompanied by sakhâs such as Shridâm and Subal, and elder brother Sri Baladev. When He entered Vrindâban He admired the trees laden with flowers and intoxicated bees hovering around them humming musically. The woods were melodious with birds such as parrots and cuckoos singing joyously. The rivers, lakes and mountains were all beautiful. In this manner Sri Krishna entered Vrindâban and blew into His mesmerizing flute.2.
