Tatra shri-radha-vakyam
Srimati Radharani’s Reply

Verse 251

“My Lord, You are mistaken.
This forest is dense and dark.
I am a young girl all alone.
This place is completely covered
by the shade of these tamala trees.
O handsome Krishna, please leave Me
at once.” When Krishna heard
Radha’s words, He at once embraced Her.
May passionate Lord Krishna protect you all.
