Gazing at the Deity Sri Govinda, Srinivasa was overcome with spiritual emotion. Then, he returned to his home. The spiritual love (anuraga) he felt increased moment after moment. He sang a song he himself had composed. Overcome with ecstasy, he forgot himselfIn this song Sri Radhika again and again tells a gopi-friend, "I saw Govinda's form, which is like an ocean of nectar."
A song in Saha-iraga:
badana-canda kun kundare kundila go
ke na kundila du'ti ankhi
dekhite dekhite mora parana yemana kare go
se-i se parana ta'ra saksi
What sculptor created the moon of Govinda's face? Who sculpted Govinda's two eyes? Only my life-breath sees what my life-breath feels as I gazed on Govinda.
ratana katiya keba yatana kariya go
ke na gadha-iya dila kane
manera sahita mora e panca parane go
yogi haila uhari dhiyane
Who created those jewel earrings? Who placed them on those ears? Now my mind and five life-airs have become yogis. They are rapt in meditation on Govinda.
nasika-upare sobha e gaja-mukuta go
sonaya mandita ta'ra pase
bijuni-jadita kiba candera kalika go
meghera adale thaki' hase
On Govinda's nose is a pearl ornament studded with gold, an ornament like a crescent moon and lightning smiling from behind a cloud.
sundara kapale sohe sundara tilaka go
tahe sobhe alakara panti
hiyara majhare mora jhalamala kare go
cande yena bhramarara panti
Beautiful tilaka glistens on Govinda's beautiful forehead with its glistening locks of black hair. In my heart Govinda's forehead glistens like a moon and a swarm of black bees.
madana-phanduyana cudara talani go
uha na sikhiyachila kotha
e buka bhariya mukhadekhite na panu go
e badi marame mora byatha
From where did Govinda's face learn how to become Kamadeva's trap? As I gaze at Govinda's face and chest, my heart becomes agitated.
kemana madhura se na rola-khani khani go
hatera cipare lagi pana
temana kariya yadi bidhata gadhita go
bhangiya bhangiya taha khana
How sweet as the sound of Govinda's voice! Cupping my hands, I sip the nectar of that sound. If the creator Brahma allows, again and again I will taste the ambrosia of that sound.
kari-bara-kara jini'bahura balani go
hingule mandita tara age
yaubana-banera pakhipiyase maraye go
tahari parasa-rasa mage
Decorated with red hingula, His powerful arms defeat the elephant's trunk. This bud in a newly-blossoming forest is dying of thirst. This bird prays to taste the nectar of Govinda's touch.
thamaki thamaki yayateraca nayane caya
yenamata gaja-raja mata
srinibasa-dasa kaya o-rupa lakhila naya
rupa-sindhu gadhila bidhata
Gracefully, gracefully Govinda walks. He casts crooked glances from His eyes. He is graceful like an intoxicated elephant. Srinivasa says: I have seen Govinda in this way. The demigod Brahma has no power to create the ocean of handsomeness that is Sri Govinda.
