Jo binu kaaran ‘Kripalu’ pyari

My Beloved Radha is causelessly Gracious.

Maya! Mohin sakhiyan bahut chirhaya – (Little Kishori Ji says in great irritation)
“Mother! My friends rease Me a lot.

Kahati sagaali hoti jaasu tav, so kaaro tanu aya – They say I have been engaged to Someone who is black in color.

Ham sab ki to kari sagali, gore tanu mam maya – Our mothers have gotten us engaged to fair boys.

Jo yah sanchu maya! Nahin karihaun, kabahaun sagai vaya – If this is true, I will never get engaged.”

Bare bhaye lali! Sab kaare,gore tanu bani jaya –  Kirti Maiya said, “Oh when they grow up, all black-complexioned boys will become fair-complexioned.”

Tab to maya! Sabai gore tanu, kaaro tanu puni paya – Little Kishori Ji said, “Then all the fair boys must become black-complexioned, too.”

Haam ri kunvari! Sancha yah, tab to, jaihain sakhi khisiyaay – Kirti Maiya said “Yes, Kunvari! That is true.” Kishori Ji said, “Then all these friends of Mine will be so embarrassed when they grow up.”

Kaha ‘Kripalu’ kaaro tanu amahun, jehi bhagavaan bataaya – Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj says “Oh Lali! Even Lord Rama, whom all the Saints declare ro be God, is dark-complexioned.”

Rangeeli Radha Rasikan Pran – Shri Radha is the very life of the rasikas.

Saras kishori ki rasbori, bhori mridu muskan – The smile of blissful Kishori Ji is extremely mellow, innocent, and sweet.

Subaran baran gaur tanu subaran, neel baran paridhan – She has a radiantly beautiful golden complexion and is wearing a blue sari.

Kanakan mukut latani ki latakani, bhrikutina kutila kamaan – Her golden crown, Her beautiful curly tresses, Her rainbow-shaped eyebrows are all maddeningly infatuating.

Kanakan kankan kanakan kinking, kanakan kundal kaan  –The golden kankans around Her wrists, the golden ornate waistband around the waist and the golden earrings in Her ears forcefully captivate the hearts of onlookers.

Lakhi laajat shringaar ladalihin, kahan laun kariya bakhaan – Her adornments are so exquiaite that even Beauty seems to be faded before them.

Hota ‘Kripalu’ nichhaavar jaapar, sundar shyama sujaan – Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Maharaj Ji says, “The greatest thing is that even Shyamsundar, whose beauty captivates even Kamdev, the god of beauty, is captivated by Kishori Ji.”

Kishori! Tore, charanan ki bali jaun – Oh Kishori Ji! I sacrifice my ‘everything’ on Your lotus feet.

Jin yug-charan-arunim-upam, pachihari nahin paun –  I have tried to find a simile in this world to describe the tender redness of these feet, but all my efforts have been in vain.

Japaa, gulaal, pravaal aadi ki, upamaa deta lajaaun – I feel ashamed to compare them with the redness of an indravaduti (a very soft, red, velvety insect), gulaal and the new and tender leaves of a mango tree, etc.

Mridutaa men gulaab navani ki, samataa lakhi na sakaaum – How can I liken he infinite softness of Your lotus-feet to the bland softness of the petals of a rose and the gentleness of butter?

Jin charanan ko chaapat hari nit, kaa mahimaa main gaaum – What glories can I sing of those feet that are always served even by the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna?

Yaha ‘Kripalu’ ki chaaha rain-din, charanan dhyaan lagaaun – Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj prays to Shri Radha, “My only desire is to meditate day and night on Your lotus feet alone!”

 

Hamari alabeli sarkar – Our Swamini, Shri Kishori Ji, is the final limit of divine love bliss.

Rasik rangili guna garvili, rasikan ki rijhvar – A  source of bliss to the rasiks, She is the reservoir of all the greatest virtues and please the hearts of rasiks always.

Vidhi nishedha, maryada eda ki, rahati na yehi darabaara – The prohibitions and injunctions of the Vedas do not have any entry in Her court.

Triguna, trikarma, tritapa nasaavati, deti prema-upahara – After destroying Her devotees three modes of mayasattva, raj and tam, the three types of binding actions – past, present, and accumulated, and also the triad of pain – extrinsic, intrinsic and superhuman, Kishori Ji blesses him with selfless Divine Love.

Palaka dhaanpi rakhata putarina jyon, pranata bhaya ika baara –   The one who surrenders oneself to Her, even once, is loved by Her extremely, and is always protected exactly in the same way as one protects the pupils of one’s eyes by covering them with the eyelids.

Darata ‘Kripalu’ jaasu dara Giridha, so hamara rakhavara – Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Maharaj says that Kishori Ji, who is feared even by the Supreme Lord, by the fear of whom even fear trembles with fear, alone is our protectress, our unique and indescribable sweet Swamini.
