Jhulan Pūrṇimā


RĀGIṆĪ KALYĀṆĪ — TĀLA CAÑCU-PUṬA


(Chorus) ĀJU KUÑJE RĀDHĀ — MĀDHAVA JHULARI
(JHULARI JHULARI JHULARI JHULARI)
ĀJU KUÑJE RĀDHĀ — MĀDHAVA JHULARI

"Today Rādhā and Mādhava are swinging in the kuñja."

SAKHĪGAṆA MELI KOROTO GĀNA
GHANA GHANA MURALĪ ŚĀNA
LOCANE LOCANA TOḌAI MĀNA
NĀSĀYA VEŚARA LOLARĪ 

"The sakhīs meet and sing while the flute plays incessantly. Meeting eyes uproot pique and pearls dangle under Their noses."

HINDOLĀ RACITA KUSUMA PUÑJA
ALI KULA TĀHE VIHARE GUÑJA
SĀRI ŚUKA PIKA BEḌHALO KUÑJA
GHERI GHERI GHERI BOLARI

"The swing is made of lots of flowers and swarms of buzzing bees enjoy there. The female Śari-parrots, the male Śuka parrots and the cuckoos fly around in the kuñja, surrounding them and singing."

JHULANĀ DHAMAKE CAMAKE RĀI,
VIHASI MĀDHAVA DHARAI TĀI
ĀNANDE AVAŚA PARAŚA PĀI
CĀPI DHARAI KOLARI

"On the swing Rādhā is alarmed and scolds Mādhava, Who laughs and holds Her. He becomes overwhelmed with bliss when He touches Her and keeps Her pressed on His lap."

PRIYA SAHACARI ṬĀNAI ḌORI
ALASE AVAŚA HOILĀ GORI
GHUMĀOLO DHANI RASE VIBHORI
DĪNA KṚṢṆA DĀSA BOLARI

"The priya sakhīs pull the ropes of the swing and Gori Rāi becomes overwhelmed with fatigue. Dīna Kṛṣṇa dāsa sings: Absorbed in rasa Dhanī Rāi fell asleep."
