Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song “Sundari Tuya Lagi Sambadala Kana”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj describes the state of Lord Krishna when he is separated from His beloved Srimati Radharani.
sundari tuya lagi sambadala kana
biraha-ksina tanu anukhana jarajara
aba ithe bidhi bhela bama
canda nehari candane tanu lepana
tapa saha-i na para
dhabala nicola baha-i na para-i
kaiche karaha abhisara
yatanahi megha mallara alapa-i
timira parana gati ase
a-ota jalada tatahi udi ya-ota
utapata diragha nisase
tuya guna nama gana japi jiba-i
bahu pulakayita deha
gobinda-dasa kaha iha aparupa naha
yaha iha naba naba leha
(Refrain) O beautiful girl, Krsna talks about You. Separated from You, His body has become emaciated. At every moment He is distraught. Fate is tormenting Him.
(1) He gazes at the moon. He anoints his limbs with sandal paste. Still He cannot tolerate the flames of His fever. He cannot wear His white shawl. How can he meet with You?
(2) Wishing to hide in the darkness, He plays the alap of Raga Megha Malhara on His flute. As the clouds come and go, He deeply sighs.
(3) He sings of Your virtues. It is only by chanting japa of Your name that He lives. The hairs of His body stand erect. Govinda dasa says: These symptoms are not surprising. Are they not the signs of new love?
