I'll repeat the intro of the previous thread here.

Jay Radhe!

The forums at Raganuga Discussions are for discussion, and therefore big images should be posted in this forum only.

For people with broadband connection, it is no problem, but for the majority of people on a 56K modem, loading five 40K images = 200K means waiting three minutes for the screen to load. This drives away most of the visitors, since it is too much of a pain to load such big pages.

Therefore, please post your images in this forum ONLY. Thanks!

Oh, blessed mind!
Always meditate upon
Lord Sri Ramacandra,
Who is full of grace!

He surely eliminates the
fear of transmigration
through worldly existence.

Oh, fortunate mind!
Adore the beauty of His eyes,
resembling the pink petals of
freshly bloomed lotus.

Worship His tender, fragrant,
lotus face, the delicate reddish
lotus flowers of His hands and feet.

I prostrate to the most handsome
Lord Sri Ramacandra Kripalu,
Whose beauty excells uncountable cupids,
Whose transcendental bodily luster
resembles dark, fresh rainfilled clouds.

My sincere salutations
to the chosen Groom of Sita Devi,
the divine Daughter of King Janaka,
and to the Lord Who is clad in
ever pure yellow silk garments,
shining as bright as the lightning.

dAnava daitya vaMza nikaMdanaM

Oh, simple, naive mind!
Meditate upon the glory of Lord Rama,
Who is the true Friend of the afflicted
and the sole Refuge of the distressed!

Being the effulgent transcendental sun,
my Lord has destroyed the ignorant,
evil-minded demons by His prowess.

raghunanda Ananda kanda
kozalacanda dazaratha nandanaM

The beloved Son of King Dasaratha
is the source of joy and pride to
the entire Raghu dynasty.

He ever reigns the kingdom of Kosala and
shines as the cool transcendental moon.

Always think of His ever kind,
soft, noble nature, though
He is holding the victorious bow
and arrows just to conquer
the devilish enemies in war.

and Who is also the Supreme joy of
all other great Rasik Saints.

It's a great painting of Hanuman embracing Sri Rama, but it would be better without the crude animation effect.

Also nice, but I like the first one better (except for the animation, which is distracting).

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!"

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.'"

Jaya Sri Radhey!
