This Ashtapadi is a message from a gopi to Radha. Krishna has requested the gopi to tell Radha to come to the beautiful breezy banks of the Yamuna to meet him. “Don’t delay”, she tells Radha, “Krishna is waiting!”

Lyrics 

rati-sukha-sāre gatam abhisāre madana-manohara-veśam |
na kuru nitambini gamana-vilambanam anusara taṃ hṛdayeśam ||1||

dhīra-samīre yamunā-tīre vasati vane vanamālī |
gopī-pīna-payodhara-mardana-caṃcala-karayuga-śālī ||dhruvapadam||

nāma sametaṃ kṛta-saṅketaṃ vādayate mṛduveṇum |
bahu manute nanu te tanu-saṅgata-pavana-calitam api reṇum ||2||

patati patatre vicalati patre śaṅkita-bhavad upayānam |
racayati śayanaṃ sacakita-nayanaṃ paśyati tava panthānam ||3||

mukharam adhīraṃ tyaja mañjīraṃ ripum iva kelisu lolam |
cala sakhi kuñjaṃ satimira-puñjaṃ śīlaya nīla-nicolam ||4||

urasi murārerupahita-hāre ghana iva tarala-balāke .
taḍid iva pīte rati-viparīte rājasi sukṛta-vipāke ||5||

vigalita-vasanaṃ parihṛta-rasanaṃ ghaṭaya jaghanam api dhānam .
kisalaya-śayane paṅkaja-nayane nidhim iva harṣa-nidānam ||6||

harirabhimānī rajaniridānīm iyam api yāti virāmam .
kuru mama vacanaṃ satvara-racanaṃ pūraya madhuripu-kāmam ||7||

śrījayadeve kṛtahariseve bhaṇati parama-ramaṇīyam .
pramudita-hṛdayaṃ harim atisadayaṃ namata sukṛta-kamanīyam ||8||

    Rati sukha sare’s rendition by Yesudas & Trupti Das for Odia movie “Jayadeba” composed by Pt Prafulla Kar is the best till date. Yesudas has also a carnatic version of the same for Malayalam movie Kanyakumariyil Oru Kavitha is equally captivating.- tarani4u@gmail.com
