Srila Rupa Gosvami

The Rasa-dance

Verse 286

On a wonderful night, in
delightful Vrindavana forest
filled with the fragrance of
jasmine flowers, illuminated
by beautiful moonlight, and
made charming by the singing
of the cuckoos and other birds,
Krishna’s sweet, regal flute
music, which stole away
the gopis’ hearts and bodies,
was splendidly manifest.
