Srila Rupa Gosvami

Radha-sakhya eva krishna-sandeshah
A Letter to Krishna from Radha’s Gopi-friend

Verse 369

Asya eva sa-pranayershyam jalpitam
Her Words Mixed With Love and Anger

The dark-complexioned Supreme
Personality of Godhead is expert
at capturing the hearts of others
with the sweet handsomeness
of His face. What hope is left
for a person who desires
friendship with Him?

– Sri Jagannatha Sena
