Bhaktivinod Thakur has written a song “Sata Koti Gopi Madhava”. The Official Name for this song is Radhikastakam Song 7. This song is taken from the book Gitavali. Bhaktivinoda Thakura says that the transcendental goddess Sri Radha is the direct counterpart of Sri Krishna. She possesses all the attractiveness to attract the all-attractive Personality of Godhead i.e Shree Krishna Govinda. Nobody can please the mind of Govinda as much as Radhe can. She is the one who adds essence to the Rasa dance. Krsna lovingly calls out to Radhika by playing His flute. One should serve the lotus feet of Srimati Radhey for Her mercy and spiritual progress.
rakhite narilokori’ jatan
`eso eso radhe!’dakoye syam
bhangiya sri-rasa-mandala tabe
`dekha diya radhe!rakhoha pran!’
boliya kandayekanane kan
nirjana kananeradhare dhori’
miliya paranjudaya hari
bole, `tunhu vinakahara rasa?
tunhu lagi’ morbaraja-basa’
e heno radhika-carana-tale
`tuwa gana-majheamare gani’
kinkori koriyarakho apani’
(1) Millions of cowherd damsels are unable to please the mind of Madhava although endeavoring to do so.
(2) The flute song calls the name of Radhika "Come here, come here, Radhe!" Syama calls out in the night.
(3) When the Sri-rasa-mandala comes to a halt in search of Beloved Radha He then goes.
(4) "Please appear, O Radhe! Kindly save My life!" calling out while weeping Kan in the forest.
(5) In a secluded grove embracing Radhika regaining His life and soul Hari is relieved.
(6) Saying, "Without You, where is the rasa dance? Only because of You do I live in Vraja."
(7) At the lotus feet of such a Radhika this Bhaktivinoda says weeping,
(8) "Among Your personal associates please count me also; making me Your maidservant keep me as Your own."
