Srila Rupa Gosvami

Sayam harer vrajagamanam
Lord Hari Returns to Vraja Village in the Evening

Verse 257

May Lord Keshava who,
sweetly playing the flute,
a peacock feather in His hair,
blackened with dust, decorated
with a wilted forest-flower garland,
tired, handsome, and a festival of
happiness for the gopis’ eyes, returns
with the surabhi cows at the day’s end,
grant auspiciousness to you all.
