Sri Svapna-vilasamrtastaka 
 Eight Prayers Describing Nectar Pastimes in Her Dream by Srila Visvanath Chakravarti Thakur

1 priya svapne drsta saridina-sutevatra pulinam 
  yatha vrndaranye natana-patavas tatra bahavah 
  mrdangadyam vadyam vividham iha kascid dvija-manih 
  sa vidyud-gaurangah ksipati jagatim prema-jaladhau

Srimati Radharani said: Beloved, in a dream I saw a river shore like the Yamuna here.  There were many expert dancers as in Vrindavan.  There were mridangas and other instruments.  There was a brahmana jewel as splendid as lightning who was tossing the universe into an ocean of pure love.


2 kadacit krsneti pralapati rudan karhicid asau 
  kva radhe ha heti svasiti patati projjhati dhrtim 
  nataty ullasena kvacid api ganaih svaih pranayibhis 
  trnadi-brahmantam jagad atitaram rodayati sah

Sometimes He calls out: "O Krishna!"  and sometimes He sighs: "O Radha, where are You?"  Sometimes He falls to the ground, sometimes He acts wildly, losing all composure, and sometimes He dances ecstatically with His loving associates.  He has made all the residents of this world, from the blades of grass up to Lord Brahma, loudly call out the name of Krishna.


3 tato buddhir bhranta mama samajani preksya kim aho 
  bhavet so 'yam kantah kim ayam aham evasmi na parah 
  aham cet kva preyan mama sa kila cet kvaham iti me 
  bhramo bhuyo bhuyan abhavad atha nidram gatavati

As I gazed at Him, My intelligence became bewildered.  If He is my lover, where am I?  If He is I, where is My lover?  If He is My lover, where am I? As I slept, I became more and more bewildered.


4 priye drstva tas tah kutukini maya darsita-cari 
  ramesadya murtir na khalu bhavati vismayam agat 
  katham vipro vismapayitum asakat tvam tava katham 
  tatha bhrantim dhatte sa hi bhavati ko hanta kim idam

Sri Krishna said: O inquisitive girl, when I showed You Narayana and My other forms You were not surprised.  Why does this brahmana surprise You?  Why does He bewilder You so You say "Who is He?"


5 iti procya prestham ksanam atha paramrsya ramano 
  hasann akuta jnam vyanudad atha tam kaustubha-manim 
  tatha diptim tene sapadi sa yatha drstim iti tad 
  vilasanam laksmam sthira-cara-ganaih sarvam abhavat

After speaking these words to His beloved, the smiling lover, Krishna, touched His Kaustubha jewel.  The jewel, understanding the Lord's intent, glowed and then showed all the same pastimes and all the moving and non moving entities She saw in her dream.


6 vibhavyatha proce priyatama maya jnatam akhilam 
  tavakutam yat tvam smitam atanuthas tattvam asi mam 
  sphutam yan navadir yad abhimatir atrapy aham iti 
  sphuranti me tasmad aham api sa evety anumime

Srimati Radharani reflected for a moment and said: Beloved, I know what is in Your heart now that makes You smile.  You are He.  What You have said and thought is now clear to Me, and therefore I think I am also He.


7 yad apy asmakinam rati-padam idam kaustubha-manim 
  pradipyatraivadidrsad akhila-jivan api bhavan 
  sva-saktyavirbhuya svam akhila-vilasam pratijanam 
  nigadya premabdhau punar api tadahasyasi jagat

Making this Kaustubha jewel, which is so delightful to Us, shine in this way, You have revealed Yourself to all living entities.  By Your own transcendental potency You will appear, display Your pastimes, teach everyone, and again plunge the world into the ocean of pure love.


8 yad uktam gargena vraja-pati-samaksam sruti-vida 
  bhavet pito varnah kvacid api tavaitan na hi mrsa 
  atah svapnah satyo mama ca na tada bhrantir abhavat 
  tvam evasau saksad iha yad anubhuto 'si tad-rtam

In the king of Vraja's presence, the learned Vedic scholar Gargacharya said that You will appear with a yellow complexion.  He did not lie.  This dream of Mine is true.  It is not an illusion.  In this dream I have directly seen You.


9 pibed yasya svapnamrtam idam aho citta-madhupah 
  sa sandeha-svapnat tvaritam iha jagarti su-matih 
  avaptas caitanyam pranaya-jaladhau khelati yato 
  bhrsam dhatte tasminn atula-karunam kunja-nrpatau

If the bumble-bee of the reader's mind drinks the nectar of this Svapna-vilasamrta, then that intelligent reader will quickly awaken from the dream of materialistic doubt.  Such a reader will attain Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.  He will sport in the ocean of pure love.  He will attain the peerless mercy of the king of Vrindavan.
