In this 'pada' a loving devotee of Lord is praying sincerely for the "sevAnanda"- the Blissful Service of the 'Kadamba Tree' in His Divine Abode!
"kariya mohim kunja-kadambani Daar,
jinme jhoolaa DAri yugala vara, jhoolai kunja majhaar,
kabahumk jhoTA deya laal joo, kabahhum deya brajanaar,
jhooloom laal-lalI samg haun hoo, jhuki jhuki jhumi nihaar,
pyaari-priyatam par oopar te, karaum pushpa bauchaar,
lakhata 'kRpAlu' yugala jhaamkI nita, haum jAvoom balihaar!"
Prema Rasa Madira - Sri Kripaluji Maharaj
The Rasik devotee of Vraja Rasa is praying to Lord Krishna, asking Him a divine favor.
"O my Beloved Syama Sundar!
Please make me at least a branch of the Kadamba tree of Your Kunja- the secluded garden Bower of Vrindavan.
Not just any Kadamba tree but that SPECIAL TREE, from whose branch, A GOLDEN SWING can be suspended.
Having seated in that swing, my Beloved Divine Couple can take the pleasure of the playful swing Lila.
At times, placing His Soul, Rahdha Rani on the Swing seat, my Dearest Laal (Young boy Krishna) can enjoy pushing the swing with great delight.
And at other times, Sri Radhikaji Herself can relish the ecstatic bliss of swinging Her Sweetheart.
At some other times the intimate Gopis, the loving associates of my Lordships can derive supreme pleasure by pushing the swing, seating both Radhaji and Sri Krishna.
It doesnot matter to me who pushes and who swings as long as I can also swing along, eternally witnessing the lila pastime of Your Swinging Pleasure from my branch!
What more I can do for your delightful service?
With ecstatic love for my Darling, I can blossom alover and shower down the frgrant flowers on the Divine Couple from above!"
In the concluding verse the Poet-Saint says,
'O my Dearest! Won't You please fulfill my ardent desire to become the branch of Kadamba tree?
Looking at Your transcendental beauty, sprinkled with the blossoms of my Divine Love offerings, I eternally surrender my life and soul to Your Lotus feet.'"
