SRI RADHIKASTAKA 
                     Eight prayers Glorifying Sri Radhika

1. rasa valita-mrgaksi-mauli-manikya-laksmih 
pramudita-muravairi-prema-vapi-marali 
vraja-vara-vrsabhanoh punya-girvana-valli 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who is a splendid ruby in the crown of all nectarean doe-eyed girls, a swan swimming in the lake of love for  jubilant Lord Krsna, and a celestial vine sprouted from Vraja's exalted King Vrsabhanu, bathe me in Her service?


2. sphurad-aruna-dukula-dyotitodyan-nitamba- 
sthalam abhi vara-kanci-lasyam ullasayanti 
kuca-kalasa-vilasa-sphita-mukta-sara-srih 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who makes the sash of bells dance on Her hips splendid with red silk, and whose necklace of large pearls plays on the waterpots of Her breasts, bathe me in Her service?


3. sarasija-vara-garbhakharva-kantih samudyat- 
tarunima-ghanasaraslista-kaisora-sidhuh 
dara-vikasita-hasya-syandi-bimbadharagra 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who is as splendid as a great lotus whorl, who is new nectar mixed with the camphor of youth, and whose bimba fruit lips blossom with a gentle smile, bathe me in Her service?


4. ati-catulataram tam kananantar milantam 
vraja-nrpati-kumaram viksya sanka-kulaksi 
madhura-mrdu-vacobhih samstuta netra-bhangya 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who, accidentally meeting restless Krsna in the outskirts of the forest, stared at Him with suspicious eyes as He cast amorous glances at Her and flattered Her with many sweet and gentle words, bathe me in Her service?


5. vraja-kula-mahilanam prana-bhutakhilanam 
pasupa-pati-grhinyah krsna-vat-prema-patram 
su-lalita-lalitantah-sneha-phullantaratma 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who the girls of Vraja love as much as their own lives, who the gopa queen Yasoda loves as much as Lord Krsna, and who makes the heart of charming Lalita blossom with love, bathe me in Her service?


6. niravadhi sa-visakha sakhi-yutha-prasunaih 
srajam iha racayanti vaijayantim vanante 
agha-vijaya-varorah-preyasi sreyasi sa 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who in the company of Visakha at the forest's edge strings a Vaijayanti garland from the flowers of many trees, and who is the beautiful beloved resting on Lord Krsna's handsome chest, bathe me in Her service?


7. prakatita-nija-vasam snigdha-venu-pranadair 
druta-gati-harim arat prapya kunje smitaksi 
sravana-kuhara-kandum tanvati namra-vaktra 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who smelling the fragrance of Lord Krsna and hearing the sweet sounds of His flute, ran to Him in the forest grove and, scratching Her ears, approached Him with smiling eyes and lowered face, bathe me in Her service?


8. amala-kamala-raji-sparsa-vata-prasite 
nija-sarasi nidaghe sayam ullasiniyam 
parijana-gana-yukta kridayanti bakarim 
snapayatu nija-dasye radhika mam kada nu

When will Sri Radhika, who on a summer evening happily plays with Lord Krsna by Her own lake cooled by breezes touching the many splendid lotuses, bathe me in Her service?


9. pathati vimala-ceta mista-radhastakam yah 
parihrta-nikhilasa-santatih katarah san 
pasupa-pati-kumarah kamam amoditas tam 
nija-jana-gana-madhye radhikayas tanoti

Pleased with any person who, abandoning all hope of material happiness and overwhelmed with love, reads this sweet Sri Radhastaka with a pure heart, the prince of Vraja of His own accord places him among Sri Radha's personal associates.
