Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song “Campaka Dama Heri Murachi Rahu Madhava”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj describes the advice given by Srimati Radha’s friends to her, to forgo her anger against Lord Krishna and talk to him which will break His sufferings into pieces.
campaka dama heri murachi rahu madhaba
locana jharu anuraga
tuya guna-mantara japaye nirantara
bhale dhani tohari sohaga
brsabhanu-nandini japaye rati dini
bharame na bolaye ana
lakha lakha dhani kaha-i madhura bani
swpaane na pata-i kana
purusa-ratana baradharani lota-ota
ko kahu arati-ora
ra bali dha balibala-i na para-i
dharadhara bahe lora
gobinda dasa tuya carane nibedala
kanuko aichana sambada
nicaya janaha tachu duhkha-khandaka
kebala tuya parasada
(1) When He saw Your campaka garland, Krsna was overcome. Tears of love streamed from His eyes. Without stop He chants the mantra of Your glories. My dear beautiful friend, He lovesYou deeply.
(2) O daughter of Vrsabhanu, He chants the mantras of Your glories day and night. He does not glorify any other girl. Millions and millions of girls praise Him with sweet words, but even in His dreams Krsna does not love any girl but You.
(3) He is the jewel of men, the best of lovers. Overcome with love for You, He rolls on the ground. Does He love another girl? He chants, "Ra!" Then He chants, "Dha!" Then He is overcome and He has no power to say anything more. Then flooding streams of tears flow from His eyes.
(4) Govinda dasa falls at Your feet and makes this request. Please give to Krsna a reply that will show mercy to Him, a reply that will break His sufferings into pieces.
