Radha and Krishna

                                  SRI RADHA KUND ASHTAKA
                                               Eight Prayers Glorifying Radhakunda

1. vrsabha danuja nasan narma dharmokti rangair 
 nikhila nija sakhibhir yat sva hastena purnam 
prakatitam api vrndaranya rajna pramodais 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

May very fragrant Radhakunda, which, prodded by the gopis' many joking words after Vrsabhasura's death, the king of Vrndavana forest happily built and filled with His own hand, be my shelter.


2. vraja bhavi mura satroh preyasinam nikamair 
asulabham api turnam prema kalpa drumam tam 
janayati hrdi bhumau snatur uccair priyam yat 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

May very dear and fragrant Radhakunda, which for one who bathes in it immediately creates in the land of the heart a desire tree of pure love rare even among the gopi beloveds of Lord Krsna in Vraja, be my shelter.


3. agha ripur api yatnad atra devyah prasada 
 prasara krta kataksa prapti kamah prakamam 
anusarati yad uccaih snana sevanubandhais 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

May very dear and fragrant Radhakunda, where, yearning to attain the merciful sidelong glance of His queen, Lord Krsna, diligently follows Her bathing attendants, be my shelter.


4. vraja bhuvana sudhamsoh prema bhumir nikamam 
 vraja madhura kisori mauli ratna priyeva 
paricitam api namna yac ca tenaiva tasyas 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

May very fragrant Radhakunda, which is named after a girl who is a realm of love for He who is the moon of Vraja, a girl who is like the most precious jewel in the crown of the sweet girls of Vraja, be my shelter.


5. api jana iha kascid yasya seva prasadaih 
 pranaya sura lata syat tasya gosthendra sunoh 
sapadi kila mad isa dasya puspa prasasya 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

The mercy obtained by serving Radhakunda makes the celestial vine of pure love for the prince of Vraja, which is famous for bearing the flowers of service to my queen, sprout. May that very fragrant Radhakunda be my shelter.


6. tata madhura nikunjah klpta namana uccair 
 nija parijana vargaih samvibhaj yasritas taih 
madhukara ruta ramya yasya rajanti kamyas 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

May very fragrant Radhakunda, on the shores of which are many splendid and charming forest groves filled with the sweet sounds of bumblebees and each named after one of Sri Radha's friends, be my shelter.


7. tata bhuvi vara vedyam yasya narmati hrdyam 
 madhura madhura vartam gostha candrasya bhangya 
prathayati mitha isa prana sakhyalibhih sa 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

May very fragrant Radhakunda, on the shore of which, in a pleasant courtyard Queen Radha and Her friends sweetly joke with Lord Krsna, the moon of Vraja, be my shelter.


8. anudinam ati rangaih prema mattali sanghair 
 vara sarasija gandhair hari vari prapurne 
viharata iha yasmin dam pati tau pramattau 
 tad ati surabhi radhakundam evasrayo me

May very fragrant Radhakunda, where the passionate divine couple daily plays with Their passionate friends in the charming lotus scented water, be my shelter.


9. avikalam ati devyas caru kundastakam yah 
 paripathati tadiyollasi dasyarpitatma 
aciram iha sarire darsayaty eva tasmai 
 madhu ripur ati modaih slisyamanam priyam tam

To one who is completely dedicated to Queen Radha's service and who happily reads these eight beautiful verses describing Her lake, even in this present body Lord Krsna shows His beloved as He happily embraces Her.
