(Chords harmonium)

 

 

Elaborate translation:

(1)
Just worship S'rî Gaurahari, who is always affectionate toward His devotees. He is the same Supreme Godhead, Krishna, who sported in the cowherd pastures of Vraja and stole the hearts of Nanda and Yas'odâ.

 

(2)
Mother Yas'odâ calls to Krishna, "My dear Dâmodara, it is very late. Please come right now, sit down in the dining hall, and take Your lunch."

 

(3)
On the direction of Nanda Mahârâja, Krishna, the holder of Govardhana Hill, sits down, and then all the cowherd boys, along with Krishna's elder brother, S'rî Baladeva, sit down in rows to take their lunch.

 

(4)
They are then served a feast of s'uktâ and various kinds of green leafy vegetables, then nice fried things, and a salad made of the green leaves of the jute plant. They are also served pumpkin, baskets of fruit, small square cakes made of lentils and cooked-down milk, then thick yogurt, squash cooked in milk, and vegetable preparations made from the flower of the banana tree.

 

(5)
Then they receive fried squares of mung dahl patties, and urad dahl patties, capâtîs, and rice with ghee. Next, sweets made with milk, sugar, and sesamum; rice flour cakes; thick cooked-down milk; cakes floating in milk; and sweet rice.

 

(6)
There is also sweet rice that tastes just like nectar due to its being mixed with camphor. There are bananas, and cheese which is nectarean and delicious. They are also served twelve kinds of sour preparations made with tamarinds, limes, lemons, oranges, and pomegranates.

 

(7)
There are purîs made with white flour and sugar; purîs filled with cream; laddus; and dahl patties boiled in sugared rice. Krishna eagerly eats all of the food.

 

(8)
In great ecstasy and joy Krishna eats the rice, curried vegetables, sweets, and pastries cooked by S'rîmatî Râdhârânî.

 

(9)
Krishna's funny brâhmana friend Madhumangala, who is very fond of laddus, gets them by hook or by crook. Eating the laddus, he shouts, "Haribol! Haribol!" and makes a funny sound by slapping his sides under his armpits with his hands.

 

(10)
Beholding Râdhârânî and Her gopî friends out of the corners of His eyes, Krishna eats at the house of mother Yas'odâ with great satisfaction.

 

(11)
After lunch, Krishna drinks rose-scented water. Then all of the boys, standing in lines, wash their mouths.

 

(12)
After all the cowherd boys wash their hands and mouths, in great bliss they take rest with Lord Balarâma.

 

(13)
The two cowherd boys Jambula and Rasâla then bring Krishna pân made with betel nuts, fancy spices, and catechu. After eating that pân, S'rî Krishnacandra then happily goes to sleep.

 

(14)
While Krishna happily takes His rest on an excellent bedstead, His servant Vis'âlâksha cools Him with a fan of peacock feathers.

 

(15)
At mother Yas'odâ's request the gopî Dhanishthhâ brings remnants of food left on Krishna's plate to S'rîmatî Râdhârânî, who eats them with great delight.

 

(16)
Lalitâ-devî and the other gopîs then receive the remnants, and within their hearts they sing the glories of Râdhârânî and Krishna with great joy.

 

(17)
Thhâkura Bhaktivinoda, whose one and only joy is the pastimes of Lord Hari, sings this Bhoga-ârati song.
