Gokula Mangala Vamsi

(Refrain)

gokula-mańgala-vaḿśī-

dhvanir udgarjati vana-gataye smara-bhūpati-śāsana-śaḿsī


(1)

kiḿ vitanoṣi mudhāńga-vibhūṣaṇa-kapaṭenātra vighātam

soḍhum ahaḿ samayasya na samprati śaktā lavam api pātam


(2)

mādhava-caraṇāńguṣṭha-nakha-dyutir ayam udayati hima-dhāmā

mā gurujana-bhayam udgira muhur iyam abhavaḿ dhāvita-kāmā


(3)

taḿ sevitum iha paśya sanātana-paramāraṇya-javeśam

gopa-vadhū-tatir iyam upasarpati bhānu-sutā-taṭa-deśam


(Refrain) The flute that brings auspiciousness to Gokula now thunders King Kamadeva’s order to go to the forest.

(1) Why do you make a delay with these superfluous decorations? I cannot tolerate even a moment’s delay!

(2) “Madhava’s toenails are very splendid.” “The moon is now rising!” “Don’t tell me again and again how I should fear my superiors! I yearn to run to Madhava!”

(3) Look! The gopis are all going to the Yamuna’s shore to serve Madhava, who is always handsomely decorated with forest flowers.
