(1) At the base of Their favorite hill, the youthful divine couple pretended to quarrel over Krsna's claim to collect a toll of yogurt and milk-products. The arrogant joking words of Radha's friends made the divine couple blossom with happiness. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, the witness of this dana-keli pastime.

 

(2) Because Sri Krsna enjoyed the dana-keli pastime in a secluded place by the shore of this lake, it has become known as Dana-sarovara. The truth of this lake remains hidden to persons averse to the mellows of pure devotional service. Only the devotees have the power to understand it. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, where the divinecouple enjoy the dana-keli pastime.

 

(3) It is beautiful with the graceful pastimes of many birds. It is cool, fragrant with many charming lotuses, and filled with the sounds of swarms of bees intoxicated by the aroma of fresh honey. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, where the divine couple enjoy the dana-keli pastime.

 

(4) It is filled with cool water fragrant with many flowers. It blossoms with good fortune attained from the peerless water-pastimes of the youthful divine couple and Their sweet friends. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, where the divine couple enjoy the dana-keli pastime.

 

(5) It is filled with the fragrance of newly-blossomed flowers. Everyone there is pleased by the singing of the birds and bees. It is surrounded by groves of splendid trees. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, where the divine couple enjoy the dana-keli pastime.

 

(6) Accompanied by Their affectionate young friends, the divine couple enters the nearby forest groves filled with newly-blossoming flowers and humming bees and enjoys incomparable ever-fresh pastimes there. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, where the divine couple enjoy the dana-keli pastime.

 

(7) By deeply drinking its water, birds, animals, cows, and humans become at once filled with a host of transcendental virtues. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, where the divine couple enjoy the dana-keli pastime.

 

(8) Every day, as he converses with His friends, the moon of the gopas makes the surabhi cows drink its sweet, aromatic, and cold water, and when they have finished, He Himself drinks. I pray that I may reside at Dana-sarovara, where the divine couple enjoy the dana-keli pastime.

 

(9) An intelligent and self-controlled person who reads these eight verses glorifying the Dana-sarovara lake will enter the eternal spiritual world and directly see the danapastimes of Sri Sri Radha'-Krsna.
