Homage to Balarama - a sloka

Madanmohan das - Mon, 30 Aug 2004 02:14:01 +0530
There is just about enough time to post some guna kirtan of Sri balarama.

udyac-chubhrAmsu koti dyuti nikara tiraskAra-kAryujjvala srir
durvAroddAma dhAma prakara ripu ghatonmAda vidhvamsi gandhah/
snehAd apyunnimesam nijam anujam ito'ranya-bhumau sva-vItam
tad vIryajno'pi yo na ksanam upanayate staumi tam dhenukArim//

I praise Sri Baladeva, the enemy of Dhenukasura, whose body shines brightly white like millions of rising moons, who easily destroys even a whiff of the false ego of his invinsable turbulent enemies, who, out of great affection, does not leave his noughty little brother Krsna out of his sight for even a momment when they go out into the woods, and who treats Krsna with this affection despite knowing about his divine prowess.
(Sri Das Goswami's Vrajavilasastava 12 translated by Advaita das in his Ananga manjari samputika of Sri Ramai Thakura)
