Kothaya Go Premamayi Radhe Radhe

gaura-kisoraA song by Gaura Kisora Dasa Babaji.

kothaya go premamayi radhe radhe
radhe radhe go, jaya radhe radhe

Where is She who is full of prema? All glories to Sri Radha.

dekha diye prana rakha, radhe radhe
tomara kańgala tomaya dake, radhe radhe

O Radha, please give me Your darsana and save my life. Your wretched beggar calls out to You, “Radhe! Radhe!”

radhe vrndavana-vilasini, radhe radhe
radhe kanu-mana-mohini, radhe radhe

O Radha, You enjoy pleasure pastimes in the forest of Vrndavana wherein You enchant the mind of Krsna.

radhe asta-sakhira siromani, radhe radhe
radhe vrsabhanu-nandini, radhe radhe
(gosai) niyama kare sadai dake, radhe radhe

O Radhe, You are the crest-jewel among Your eight principal sakhis. O Radha, daughter of Vrsabhanu Baba. Raghunatha dasa Gosvami was alway calling out, “Radhe! Radhe!”

(gosai) eka-bara dake kesi-ghate,
abara dake vaḿsi-vate, radhe radhe
(gosai) eka-bara dake nidhu-vane,
abara dake kusja-vane, radhe radhe

Sometimes at Kesi-ghata, sometimes at Vamsi-vata. Sometimes in Nidhuvana, sometimes in Seva-kunja.

(gosai) eka-bara dake radha-kunde,
abara dake syama-kunde, radhe radhe
(gosai) eka-bara dake kusuma-vane,
abara dake govardhane, radhe radhe

Sometimes at Radha-kunda, sometimes at Syama-kunda, sometimes at Kusuma-sarovara, sometimes at Giriraja-Govardhana.

(gosai) eka-bara dake tala-vane,
abara dake tamala-vane, radhe radhe
(gosai) malina vasana diye gaya,
vrajera dhulaya gadagadi jaya, radhe radhe

Sometimes at Talavana, sometimes at Tamalvana. Raghunatha dasa wears simple cloth which appears to be dirty because he is always rolling on the earth crying out, “Radhe! Radhe!”

(gosai) mukhe radha radha bale,
bhase nayanera jale, radhe radhe
(gosai) vrndavane kuli kuli kêde bedaya
radha bali’, radhe radhe

Calling out “Radhe! Radhe,” his eyes are bursting with a flood of tears. He wanders throughout the lanes of Vrndavana crying out, “Radhe! Radhe!”

(gosai) chapanna danda ratri-dine
jane na radha-govinda vine, radhe radhe

He knows nothing but Radha-Govinda throughout the day and night. Radhe! Radhe!

tara para cari danda suti’ thake
svapne radha-govinda dekhe, radhe radhe

He takes rest for only four dandas (1 1/2 hour). At that time in his dreams he receives darsana of Radha-Govinda. Radhe! Radhe!
