Rasakeli Dhashakam – Lyrics and meanings



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||











I shall meditate upon Lord Krishna who is decked in feathers of peacock on his beautiful curly hair locks, he is decorated in magnificent ear rings that keeps dangling, he is decked in various ornaments, garlands and Vanamala, he is decorated with the fragrant sandal paste and vermilion, he is attired in marvelous yellow garments, his waste belts and anklets spread intense luster, thus he is all prepared for the amorous sport/Rasakeli.  I shall meditate upon Lord Krishna  in the middle of beautiful young maidens of Vraja who are marvelously decorated in various ornaments and attractive ear rings that keeps dangling, I could envision Lord Krishna /Indhiravallabha in the middle of each and every young maidens, in this way he has initiated glorious Rasakeli/amorous sport.    Oh! Vasudeva, your glorious amorous sport enthused the deities in to a state of ecstasy when they came to know from Maharishi Narada, even the celestial women decked in various ornaments, attired in magnificent garments rushed to  Earth with their consort to take part in the majestic Rasakeli.  I shall meditate upon Lord Krishna who performs glorious Rasakeli to the melodious tunes of music from flute, his lotus feet are beautifully moving according to the tunes, his bangles are making jingling noises, his hands are placed on the shoulders of the beautiful young maidens of Vraja, and his clothes are misplaced from the waist due to the graceful movements.  I shall meditate upon Lord Krishna who performs glorious Rasakeli/amorous sport with beautiful movements of his body according to the carefully constructed loud and melodious music, he is decked in precious gem studded ornaments that produces jingling noises to his graceful movements, all the deities and celestials are in a state of ecstasy showering flowers in great joy.  I shall meditate upon Lord Krishna who performs glorious Rasakeli, one of the young maiden with great perspiration and exhaustion with half closed eyes took shelter on your shoulder, another young maiden with loosened plait of hair besieged in extreme passion kept kissing on your arms which is smeared in highly fragrant sandal paste, without the knowledge of others.  I shall meditate upon Lord Krishna who performs glorious Rasakeli, one of the most fortunate young maiden kept her beautiful cheeks close to yours and took immense pleasure in nectar like your lips, and those highly fortunate young maidens attained the dwelling place of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi during their amorous sport.  Oh! Lord Krishna, gradually the flow of melodious music has stopped and music from the divine musical instruments also come to an end, but the young maidens of Vraja continued their passionate sport, they were not conscious of misplaced garments or loosened hairs and ornaments,  and the celestials remained in a state of bliss witnessing your glorious performance of Rasakeli.  Oh! Supreme Lord Krishna, in this way you have soaked all the living beings on the Universe in to the state of bliss, you have continued to perform the amorous sport for the beautiful young maidens of Vraja who were already soaked in perspiration and besieged in cupid arrows of Manmatha.  Oh! Supreme Lord Krishna, you have taken immense pleasure in the various amorous sports with those beautiful young maidens, and you have taken great joy  with those young maidens in the waters of Kalindhi.  The young maidens of Vraja took great pleasure in the cool breeze and various fragrances of fresh alluring flowers of the woods in your closest association.  Oh! Kamaneeya Krishna/most attractive, in this way you have provided nectar like immense bliss to young maidens of Vraja and pleased them with your amorous sport in every night, even Lord Bhrama and Lord Shiva had high reverence towards those young maidens of Vraja,  Oh! Krishna, you are attainable to virtuous and passionate devotees, therefore kindly protect us.
