Bajata Ghana Ghana Benu

Bajata Ghana Ghana Benu

Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song ” Bajata Ghana Ghana Benu”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj describes the wonderful pastimes enjoyed by Lord Krishna with his friends in the forests of Vraja on the banks of river Yamuna.
 
(Refrain)
bajata ghana ghana benu
hai hai raba hamba raba garajana
anande magana carata saba dhenu
 
(1)
go-dhana sange range yadu-nandana
bihara-i yamuna-tira
dama sridama sudama maha-bala
gopa goyala sange bala-bira
 
(2)
sama-baya-besa kesa parimandita
cude sikhandaka kusuma ujora
manimaya hara gunja naba manjula
hera-ite jaga-jana-mana karu bhora
 
(3)
balaya nisana kanaka kati kinkini
nupura runu jhunu baja
gobinda-dasa pahu niti niti aichana
bihara-i naba ghana bipina samaja
 
(Refrain) Again and again He plays the flute. Hai! Hai!", the boys call. "Hamba", the cows moo. Plunged in bliss, the cows walk and graze.

 
(1) Surrounded by His cows, Lord Krsna enjoys pastimes on the Yamuna's banks. The powerful boy-hero Krsna is surrounded by Dama, Sridama, Sudama, and the boys and cows.
 
(2) His friends are like Him in age and garments. His hair is decorated with flowers and a peacock-feather. He wears a jewel necklace and a graceful string of gunja. Gazing at Him, the people of the world feel their hearts overcome with bliss.
 
(3) His bracelets, anklets, and golden belt jangle. Again and again Govinda dasa's master enjoys pastimes in this way with His friends in the newly-blossoming forest.
