Madhava Dhairaya Na Kara Gamane

Madhava Dhairaya Na Kara Gamane

Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song “Madhava Dhairaya Na Kara Gamane”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj reveals Srimati Radharani’s distressed state when she is separated from Lord Krishna.
 
(Refrain)
madhaba dhairaya na kara gamane
tohari biraha dhani antara jarajara
manasa milana samane
 
(1)
dhuli-dhusara dhani dhairaya na dhara
dharani sutala bharame
mukata kabari-bhara hara teyagala
tapita bhusita parane
 
(2)
bigalita ambara sambara nahe dhani
sura-suta srabe nayane
kamalaja kamale-i kamalaja jhampala
so-i nayana bara bayane
 
(3)
ma bola-i dhani dharani-tale murachani
prana prabodha na mane
kaha-i catura dhani ara kiye hoya jani
gobinda-dasa paramane
 
(Refrain) O Krsna, You do not go to her and make her peaceful. Separated from You, a beautiful girl feels her heart is now overcome. Now her heart is on the verge of death.
 
(1) Now that girl is covered with dust. She is not peaceful. She lies on the ground. She removes her necklace. She unties her braids. Now her life's breath is decorated with flames.
 
(2) Her garments are in disarray. She has lost all restraint. A Yamuna of tears flows from her eyes. Her beautiful eyes are like lotus whorls in the lotus of her face.
 
(3) She speaks not a word. On the ground she has fallen unconscious. I do not think her life's breath is still awake. An intelligent girl speaks some words to her. What will happen now?Govinda dasa is the witness of all this.
