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
bājata ghana ghana beṇu
hai hai rāba hāmbā raba garajana
ānande magana carata saba dhenu
go-dhana sańge rańge yadu-nandana
dāma śrīdāma sudāma mahā-bala
gopa goyāla sańge bala-bīra
sama-baya-beśa keśa parimaṇḍita
cūḍe śikhaṇḍaka kusuma ujora
maṇimaya hāra guñjā naba mañjula
hera-ite jaga-jana-mana karu bhora
balaya nisāna kanaka kaṭi kińkiṇī
nūpura ruṇu jhunu bāja
gobinda-dāsa pahu niti niti aichana
bihara-i naba ghana bipina samāja
(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.
