Gopi Gita Bhajan
uploaded on ekadasi! happy ekadasi everyone!
this is from srimad bhagavatam
i only did the first 9 slokas as it was too long i think- there are 21 slokas. the ninth sloka is my favorite, so it hought i'd end on it.
** the setting- Krishna had left the gopis, and they began searching for him in the forest. Then they began to sing
jayati te 'dhikam janmana vrajah
srayata indira sasvad atra hi
dayita drisyatam dikshu tavakas
tvayi dhritasavas tvam vicinvate
The gopis said: O beloved, Your birth in the land of Vraja has made it exceedingly glorious, and thus Indira, the goddess of fortune, always resides here. It is only for Your sake that we, Your devoted servants, maintain our lives. We have been searching everywhere for You, so please show Yourself to us.
surata-natha te 'sulka-dasika
vara-da nighnato neha kim vadhah
O Lord of love, in beauty Your glance excels the whorl of the finest, most perfectly formed lotus within the autumn pond. O bestower of benedictions, You are killing the maidservants who have given themselves to You freely, without any price. Isn't this murder?
vrisha-mayatmajad visvato bhayad
rishabha te vayam rakshita muhuh
O greatest of personalities, You have repeatedly saved us from all kinds of danger -- from poisoned water, from the terrible man-eater Agha, from the great rains, from the wind demon, from the fiery thunderbolt of Indra, from the bull demon and from the son of Maya Danava.
na khalu gopika-nandano bhavan
sakha udeyivan satvatam kule
You are not actually the son of the gopi Yasoda, O friend, but rather the indwelling witness in the hearts of all embodied souls. Because Lord Brahma prayed for You to come and protect the universe, You have now appeared in the Satvata dynasty.
viracitabhayam vrishni-dhurya te
caranam iyusham samsriter bhayat
kara-saroruham kanta kama-dam
sirasi dhehi nah sri-kara-graham
O best of the Vrishnis, Your lotuslike hand, which holds the hand of the goddess of fortune, grants fearlessness to those who approach Your feet out of fear of material existence. O lover, please place that wish-fulfilling lotus hand on our heads.
vraja-janarti-han vira yoshitam
bhaja sakhe bhavat-kinkarih sma no
jalaruhananam caru darsaya
O You who destroy the suffering of Vraja's people, O hero of all women, Your smile shatters the false pride of Your devotees. Please, dear friend, accept us as Your maidservants and show us Your beautiful lotus face.
phani-phanarpitam te padambujam
krinu kuceshu nah krindhi hric-chayam
Your lotus feet destroy the past sins of all embodied souls who surrender to them. Those feet follow after the cows in the pastures and are the eternal abode of the goddess of fortune. Since You once put those feet on the hoods of the great serpent Kaliya, please place them upon our breasts and tear away the lust in our hearts.
madhuraya gira valgu-vakyaya
vidhi-karir ima vira muhyatir
O lotus-eyed one, Your sweet voice and charming words, which attract the minds of the intelligent, are bewildering us more and more. Our dear hero, please revive Your maidservants with the nectar of Your lips.
tava kathamritam tapta-jivanam
kavibhir iditam kalmashapaham
sravana-mangalam srimad atatam
bhuvi grinanti ye bhuri-da janah
The nectar of Your words and the descriptions of Your activities are the life and soul of those suffering in this material world. These narrations, transmitted by learned sages, eradicate one's sinful reactions and bestow good fortune upon whoever hears them. These narrations are broadcast all over the world and are filled with spiritual power. Certainly those who spread the message of Godhead are most munificent.
**at the end of gopi gita Krishna then makes his appearance! :)
