The fourth month of meditations...

Sri Krishna Karnamrta, verse 68:

mAraH svayaM nu madhura-dyuti-maNDalaM nu
mAdhuryam eva nu mano-nayanAmRtaM nu
veNI-mRjo nu mama jIvita-vallabho nu
kRSNo 'yam abhyudayate mama locanAya

“My dear friends, where is that Krishna, Cupid personified, who has the effulgence of a kadamba flower, who is sweetness itself, the nectar for my eyes and mind, He who loosens the hair of the gopis, who is the supreme source of transcendental bliss, and my life and soul? Has He come before my eyes again?”

"As a strong lion defeats many elephants
and then becomes further nourished
and strengthened by feeding on them,
so too does sacred love, when exceedingly great,
conquer all obstacles before it,
whether they come from this world or the next,
from enemies or from family members,
from one's own body or the things connected to it,
or even from that dearest one
who is the object of the love itself.
Even if those obstacles are as vast
as the immeasurable Mount Meru,
sacred love will conquer them,
and having conquered,
will become more strong and vital."

"Even all the causes for perishing and forsaking do not cause its perishment;
this emotional bondage between the lovers is glorified as sacred love."

Jaya Sri Radhey! Namaste all. Happy Mother's Day!

mAtrA 'jIrNa dhiyA dRDhaM cakitayAnaSTAsmidRSTaHkayA
"thU thU vatsaka! jIva lIva ciram" ityukto 'vatAnno hariH"

(Sri Krishna Karnamritam- 2.61)

In the words of the Rasik Saint, Sri Bilva Mangala Thakura-

Mother Yashoda was fondling Baby Krishna on her lap and the adorable Child was smiling with joy opening wide His lotus mouth.

Mother could not help noticing the contents of His stomach!

She was startled to see the 'Kailasa Parvata' Mountain (the
snowcapped abode of Lord Shiva on top of the universe) but composed herself thinking that as the previously eaten butter by her Son.

At the sight of the earth planet, she thought that must be the lump of dirt her mischievous Boy was eating earlier.

When she visualized the Ocean of milk, she surely recognized the (undigested) milk drunk by her poor Baby during the day.

By now, mother Yashoda was firmly convinced herself that her precious Child must have been suffering from "indigestion" due to some envious, evil eyes around the neighborhood and by other wicked spells.

Being a very loving and caring mother, she innocently pronounced an auspicious incantation to drive out the effects of the evil spell and relieve the distress of her Child, and blessed Him -

"Long live, my Child, may You live long!"

Let my Saviour be the same adorable Lord Hari Who was thus protected by mother Yashoda.

Jaya Sri Radhey!

Sorry that this is in French, and no original Brajbhasha, but the translation is very nice. Posted on

Ô, Mâdhava, retiens un peu cette vache !

Nuit et jour elle vagabonde sur de mauvais chemins et nul ne peut s'en saisir!
Très goulue, insatiable,
elle dévore les feuilles de l'Arbre du Veda !

Tout le jour, elle boit
mais jamais sa soif n'est étanchée !
Que je lui apporte maintes nourritures succulentes,
leur odeur lui déplaît,
Mais elle va se jeter sur d'autres fourrages
détestables, indigestes: on ne peut dire ses tours !
Ciel et terre, rivières, montagnes et forêts,
elle a tout brouté mais elle n'est pas satisfaite...

Avec ses sabots bleu-noir, ses yeux rouges,
ses cornes blanches, splendide,
Elle va piétinant les quatorze mondes !
Comment peut-on la retenir ?

Impudente, rebelle, elle ne craint personne:
armée des trois "Qualités", elle tient tête,
A force de ruses elle a dépouillé démons, dieux et hommes
et elle leur grimpe sur la tête !

Elle se compose un museau et des mines séduisantes,
elle leur vole leur âme et prend la fuite !
Nârada et Shuka et tous les grands ascètes et les grands sages
nul n'a pu la maîtriser !

Dis-moi, Océan de compassion:
comment le pauvre Sûr-dâs pourrait-il mener paître une
telle vache?

Ô, Mâdhava, retiens un peu cette vache..."

(La "vache" ici symbolise la soif inextinguible des plaisirs, le désir insatiable qui tourmente Sûr-dâs - et tous les êtres plongés dans l'Océan de l'Existence; elle est aussi une personnification de la Mâyâ.)

"The 'calf' here symbolizes the unquenching thirst for pleasures, the insatiable desires which tormet Surdas -- and all the essences found in the Ocean of Existence; she is also a personification of Maya."
Is this actually the idea of Surdas? I couldn't catch it from his original song above. Perhaps it is due to my having read French some seven years ago for the last time.

As part of Harinama-chintamani, we will be including a fairly substantial appendix with many Maha Mantra vyakhyas. Here is one attributed to Jiva Goswami.


hare kRSNa hare kRSNa kRSNa kRSNa hare hare |
hare rAma hare rAma rAma rAma hare hare ||


sarva-ceta-haraH kRSNas tasya cittaM haraty asau |
vaidagdhI-sAra-vistArair ato rAdhA harA matA ||

Krishna steals everyone’s mind, but Radharani steals even His when She makes use of Her divine talents. Therefore She is known as HarA.
karSati svIya-lAvaNya-muralI-kala-niHsvanaiH |
zrI-rAdhAM mohana-guNAlaGkRtaH kRSNa Iryate ||

Because He forcibly pulls Radha from Her home with the sound of His flute filled with His loveliness, that Lord of all enchanting virtues is known as Krishna.

zrüyate nIyate rAse hariNA hariNekSaNA
ekAkinI rahaH-kuJje hareyaM tena kathyate ||

It is heard that doe-eyed Radha was taken by Krishna during the Rasa dance to spend time with Him alone in a secret grove in the forest. She is therefore known as HarA.

aGga-zyAmalima-stomaiH zyAmalIkRta-kAJcanaH |
ramate rAdhayA sArdhaM kRSNo nigadyate ||

The black effulgence of Krishna’s body turns even the gold of Radharani’s skin to black when He embraces Her. He is thus known as Krishna.

kRtvAraNye saraH-zreSThaM kAntayAnumatas tayA |
AkRSya sarva-tIrthAni taj-jJAnAt kRSNa Iryate  ||

When Radharani ordered Krishna to build the most beautiful water tank in the world (as a penance for killing Arishtasura), He called all the holy rivers and tanks to bring water to fill it. Thus He is known as Krishna.

kRSyate rAdhayA premNA yamunA-taTa-kAnanam |
lIlayA lalitaz cApi dhIraiH kRSNa udAhRtaH ||

Because He is forcibly attracted into the forests on the Yamuna’s banks by Radha’s ecstatic love, where He becomes Her playful lover, He is known by the wise as Krishna.

hRtavAn gokule tiSThann ariSTaM puSTa-puGgavam |
zrI-haris taM rasAd uccai rAyatIti harA matA ||

While living in Gokula, Krishna destroyed the powerful demon known as Arishta. At that time, Radha called out to Him with great emotion. Doing so, she stole His mind and so is known as HarA.

hy asphuTaM rAyati prIti-bhareNa hari-ceSTitam |
gAyatIti matA dhIrair harA rasa-vicakSaNaiH ||

Filled with sweet affection, Radha sometimes glorifies Krishna’s pastimes quietly, and sometimes She sings them aloud. Thus those who know the secrets of divine rasa call Her HarA.

rasAveza-parisrastAM jahAra muralIM hareH |
hareti kIrtitA devI vipine keli-lampaTA ||

Sometimes Krishna becomes so absorbed in Radha’s love that His beloved flute slips from His hand. Mad with the desire to enjoy pastimes in the forest bowers with Krishna, Radha steals Krishna’s flute. That goddess is thus known as HarA.

govardhana-darI-kuJje parirambha-vicakSaNaH |
zrI-rAdhAM ramayAmAsa rAmas tena mato hariH ||

When Krishna, the expert embracer, makes love with Radha in the forest bowers or the caves of Govardhan, He is known as Rama.

hanti duHkhAni bhaktAnAM rAti saukhyAni cAnvaham |
harA devI

nigaditA mahA-kAruNya-zAlinI ||

Radha most compassionately destroys the miseries of Her devotees and gives them great joy every single day. Therefore she is known as HarA.

ramate bhajato cetaH paramAnanda-vAridhau |
atreti kathito rAmaH zyAmasundara-vigrahaH ||

Krishna, with His beautiful blackish form, submerges the minds of those who worship Him in an ocean of supreme bliss. Therefore He is known by the name Rama.

ramayaty acyutaM premNA nikuJja-vana-mandire |
rAmA nigaditA rAdhA rAmo yutas tayA punaH ||

In a temple forest groves, Radharani brings the infallible Krishna to the pinnacle of joy with Her love. Therefore She is called RAmA. Since Krishna is always by Her side, He is known as Rama.

rodanair gokule dAvAnalam azayati hy asau |
vizoSayati tenokto rAmo bhakta-sukhAvahaH ||

When Krishna heard the cries of the Vrajavasis, who were afraid of the forest fire, He quickly swallowed it up, drying their tears. By giving them joy in this way, He is known as Rama.

nihantum asurAn yAto mathurA-puram ity asau |
tadAgamad rahaH-kAmo yasyAH sA’sau hareti ca ||

Krishna left Vraja for Mathura in order to slay the demons, but later returned, drawn by the desire to be alone with Radha. Because She attracted Him back to Vraja, She is known as HarA.

Agatya duHkha-hartA yo sarveSAM vraja-vAsinAm |
zrI-rAdhA-hAri-carito hariH zrI-nanda-nandanaH ||

When the son of Nanda returned to Vraja after many years in Mathura and Dvaraka, He took away all the distress of its residents. His every action steals the heart of Srimati Radharani, and so He is known as Hari.

Sins quake

Chitragupta, the scribe of Destiny,
fearfully picks up his scissors,
as Brahma prepares the ingredients
necessary to worship
that person
who simply desires to utter Your holy name, O Lord!

Need we say anything more than this

The following is a description of Salila Kamala, the kunja of Srimati Ananga Manjari,
as it appears in the Govinda Lilamrta of Krishnadas Kaviraja (7.100-101)

"In the north of Radhakunda is the kunja of Sri Radha's younger sister Ananga Manjari, known as Salila Kamala. It appears to outsiders as radiant as water. It is shaped like a sixteen petaled lotus and is connected to the shore (being actually situated within the water) by a bridge.

This kunja is studded with emeralds, rubies and moonstones as well as jewelled lilies, lotuses and swans. Seeing this kunja, which gives matchless bliss to Krishna with its fine, natural beauty, it seems as if a garland of waves manifests above it."

The Upanishads never directly mention it, so what?
What do I care for those quibblers who have fallen into the deep well of the scriptures?
What do I care for those who haven't entered into an understanding of the Bhagavata's secrets?
My mind will not be diverted from Vrindavan for an instant,

What do we care for all these nice scriptures, or the brilliant paths described in them and followed by so many saintly persons? If there is no feeling nor nectarean glorification of Radha, the incarnation of love, what do we need them for? I don't even care for Lakshmi or Vaikuntha if there is no Radha, whereas I will stay here in Vrindavan for a million births, enlivened by the sweet hope of attaining her service.(RRSN 217)

Talk of Brahman and liberation will not taste bitter;
The world and Vedic social order will continue to look perfectly orderly,
And one will be caught up in arguments about the merits
of different superficial matters with followers of various scriptures,
As long as one has not come into contact with devotees
who hold dear the lotus of feet of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

Sri Gaura Raya speaks to Sanatana (CC M 21.137-143):

Just contemplate the sweetness of the Lord!
A mellifluent sea of mead
For which my mind in lusty greed
Has come and sits in waiting by its shore.
And thinking it will quickly drink its fill
Is fated to know it never will.
Misfortune has come in doctor’s guise
and allows it not one drop despite its cries.

Pray tell, can sweetness be still more than sweet?
And then more sweet, a sweetness even more complete?
With just one drop, the entire cosmos fills
And drowns within those lovely honey swills;
In sweetness all directions merge and meet.
The smiling rays of camphor touch his lips,
The smile melts from his misty mouth and drips
Ent’ring by force the ears of all the skies
Beguiles, and ravishing it ties
The hearts of all, and most of all the girls.

Just hear about that dulcet flute’s disgrace!
It steals wives from their husbands’ sweet embrace,
Destroys their dharm and their chasteness vows.
And Laksmi too in heaven is aroused,
So what hope have we poor gopis to save face?

It looses the brides’ clothes before their grooms,
Makes them leave their chores unfinished in their rooms;
It makes them dance as if tied to a string
Forgetting fear, shame and every thing,
Then drags them to where the lotus lord’s smile blooms.

Sri Krsna’s arms like jewelled bars of steel
No, not arms but cobras black who steal
Between the furrows of the gopis’ breasts
To pierce their hearts and put their fangs to rest,
To leave a wound that only he can heal.

O Sri Vrindavan ! One day Radharani wanted to pick a beautiful flower from the upper branches of one of your trees. So she said, “O sinless one! Be kind and bend over for me.”

I (Krishna) laughed and jokingly said, “Don’t do it”, but the tree did not obey me and acted as my beloved had asked. This brought me the greatest pleasure.

Srimati Lalita Sakhi says to her Mistress, Radha Rani:

O my sweet, beautiful Lady!
I have warned You earlier that
whoever falls in the Love trap
of the Son of Nanda Maharaj,
there will not be an end to the
flow of her tears for ever!

Due to Your greedy Love for Him,
You haven't heed my advice,
though I have tried many times
to stop Your infatuation.

O tender-hearted naive Radhike!
You have doubted my good counsel
and never paid respect nor
listened to my wise words.

Now what else will You do
other than weeping bitterly
and crying loudly!

Jaya Sri Radhey!
