Poem for Mar 19

Acarya's Writing

Padyavali, Anthology of Devotional Poetry
Srila Rupa Gosvami

Vraja-devinam uttaram
The Reply of the Goddesses of Vraja

Verse 293

Why do You teach us
the path of religion?
Be kind. Teach Your
bad-mouthed disciple,
the flute. Alas! Alas!
Your bold flute robs our
modesty and carries our
hearts to the Supreme
Personality of Godhead.
Teach it not to call us here.

— Sri Rupa Gosvami
