Dhani Dhani Aparupa Rasa Bihari

(Refrain)

dhani dhani aparupa rasa-bihara

thira bijura sane cancala jaladhara

rasa barakhiye anibara

 

(1)

kancana mani-gana janu nirama-ola

ramani-mandala saja

majhahi majha   maha-marakata sama

syama nata-bara raja

 

(2)

kata kata canda   timira para  bilasa-i

timirahi kata kata cande

kanaka-lataye   tamalaha kata kata

duhu duhu tanu tanu bandhe

 

(3)

kata kata padumini pancama ga-ota

madhukara dharu sruti-bhasa

madhukara mili kata  padumini ga-ota

mugadhala gobinda-dasa

 

(Refrain) O beautiful gopi, O beautiful gopi, there is the wonderful rasa-dance pastime. Radha and Krsna are like a stationary lightning flash and restless monsoon cloud that together shower without stop a great monsoon of nectar.

 

(1) Glistening like a gold and jewel necklace, the gopis form a circle. In that circle's center of centers is Lord Krsna, the king of dancers. He glistens like a great sapphire there.

 

(2) How many moons now glisten in the darkness of this night? How many moons now glisten in the darkness of this night? How many golden vines now embrace how many tamala trees? One couple after another are now bound in an embrace.

 

(3) How many lotus like girls sing melodies in the fifth note? How many black bee teenage boys chant the hymns of the Vedas? How many such lotus girls and black bee boys meet and sing charming melodies together? Govinda dasa is charmed by their music.
