Poem for Feb 01


Radha-Govinda reciprocate with me.
Radha-Govinda, my eyes were closed during japa,
and I could not see You.
But now I am free to look at You,
and it is a great delight.
I also glance at the entourage –
Srila Prabhupada, Lord Caitanya, and
Nrsimhadeva for protection –
as They are necessary to approach You.
You are the Supreme conjugal lovers
in all the universes. Your love
for each other spreads through space
like a full effulgent moon. Nothing
is as great, and nothing can equal it.
The attraction of other loving partners
is a perverted reflection
of Your original pastimes
of Your original position
(adi-rasa). No other couple
has the loyalty, the ability
not to grow old, the
unspeakable bliss in meeting
in the essence of separation.
it could not be done otherwise,
Lord Krishna descended
as a combination of
Radha and Krishna (sri krishna caitanya
radha krishna nahe anya)
just to teach us
confidential feelings of Radha in separation.
This Lord Caitanya is known as the
One who enjoys with Radharani.
His confidential associates Svarupa
Damodara and Ramananda Raya know it.
I am grateful Radha-Govinda
reside with me in Viraha Bhavan.
