Govinda Das Kaviraj has written this song “Sakhi Gana Meli Ye Karala”. This song is taken from the book Padavali. In this song, Govinda Das Kaviraj describes the water pastimes enjoyed by the Divine Couple – Sri Radharani and Lord Krishna, and by all the gopis. Watching this transcendental pastime, Govinda Das Kaviraj is filled with wonder.
sakhi-gana meli ye karala payana
kautuke keli-kunde abagana
jala-maha paithala sakhi-gana meli
duhu jana samara karala jala-keli
bichurala kuntala jarajara ańga
gahana samare de-i nagara bhańga
sakhi-gana bedhala nagara-canda
gobinda-dasa heri raha dhandha
(1) The gopis assemble and depart. They joyfully enter the waters of the pastime lake.
(2) The gopis meet in the midst of the waters. The divine couple enjoys many water pastimes. Playfully They fight in the water.
(3) Their hair becomes disheveled. Their limbs are filled with bliss. In a furious duel, the hero Krsna defeats His gopi beloved.
(4) The gopis surround Krsna, the moon of heroes, and attack Him from all sides. Watching, Govinda dasa is filled with wonder.
