1) My beloved Kanhaiya who is so enchanting, I like Your beautiful name so much. All the village-people sing of You Kanhaiya, the dear child of Nanda and Yasoda.
 
2) You are the lover of Radha, You enchant even Cupid, You enjoy pastimes while roaming around the Yamuna, Krsna, Govinda! You play enchanting melodies on the flute, and You lifted Govardhana Hill

1) Lord Krsna is very beautiful, His face always graced by charming, amorous smiles. He looks as if He is being devoured by the waves of Radha’s sidelong glances. His jubilant face resembles the moon, His head is decorated with a peacock feather, and His complexion is as charming as a monsoon cloud. In this way the Lord shines with great splendor as He enjoys pastimes in the forest of Vrndavana.
 
2) Encircled by beautifully attired gopis on the Yamuna’s shore, Krsna has them begin playing orchestral music on wind instruments, string instruments, and drums. Then that King of Dancers gracefully dances in their midst. In this way the Lord shines with great splendor as He enjoys pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana.
 
3) When the peacock sings the first note of the musical scale and the cuckoo the fifth, Krsna plays the most beautiful gandhara melody on His flute, thus destroying the composure of everyone in the three worlds. In this way Lord Krsna, fragrant with musk, shines with great splendor as He enjoys pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana.
 
4) With His matchlessly beautiful fingers Krsna grasps Radha’s fingers, and together they stroll about in a luxuriant flower garden as the young girls of Vraja sing in wonderfully melodious voices. In this way the Lord shines with great splendor as He enjoys pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana.
 
5) As Krsna dances in the dancing arena near the slopes of Govardhana hill, the peacocks worship Him with their dancing, the bumblebees with their singing, and the bamboos with their instrumental music as they sound in the wind. With His senses completely absorbed in this simultaneous dancing, singing, and instrumental music, the Lord shines with great splendor as He enjoys pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana.
 
6) By reciting descriptions of the confidential pastimes of Radha and Krsna, flocks of male and female parrots have revealed these pastimes publicly and created a wonderful flooding river of nectar. Krsna smiles as he whispers the parrots’ words in the ear of His beloved. In this way He shines with great splendor as He enjoys pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana.
 
7) Krsna very sweetly flatters Radha: “Look! Seeing Your beautiful hair, this peacock has become stunned. This black deer is bowing down to offer respect to the beauty of Your lotus eyes. And this bumblebee is praising Your curling hair.” In this way the Lord shines with great splendor as he enjoys pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana.
 
8) The multitude of gopis, who are trembling with amorous desire, serve Krsna by instructing Him in the varous details of the best art—the art of love. Following their expert instructions, He has placed His broad arm on His beloved’s shoulders where Her hair has fallen. In this way the Lord shines with great splendor as He enjoys pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana.
 
9) These eight prayers, which are the abode of the remembrance of Kunja-vihari, are very beautiful because they are filled with descriptions of His unparalleled pastimes. Kunja-vihari, who is worshiped by the supremely virtuous Radha and who is the king of Vrndavana forest, leads the delighted reader of these verses to His lotus feet.
