Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam - Gokul Bhajan & Vedic Studies

Report

Continuously absorbed in Kṛṣṇa prema, you
have forgotten your sādhaka-deha. You are
a desire creeper that increases the tat-tatbhāva mood of the mañjarīs; by your mercy
you may reveal our constitutional spiritual
form and ecstatic loving mood. When, oh
when, will that day come when you will
bestow your mercy upon me?

Your attire is pink in color and your bodily complexion is
golden like the beautiful golden plumeria. You are so
attractive that even Kṛṣṇa becomes bewildered by
seeing you. You are Rādhā’s eternal loving companion
and your intimate service is to assist Her for abhisāra
(when Rādhikā is proceeding to meet with Kṛṣṇa at
night, at the appointed secret rendezvous place). You
are a desire creeper for Rādhikā’s abhisāra. When, oh
when, will that day come when you will bestow your
mercy upon me?

You will expertly decorate Rādhikā, disguising Her with
different colourful matching clothes according to the
visibility of the moon during the night, sometimes,
during white fortnight, decorating Her with white
ornaments and smearing camphor on Her body, and
on black fortnight, dressing Her in deep dark color
clothing. You conceal Rādhikā by cheating the people
in general for Rādhikā must not be seen by them and
the secret rendezvous place must be kept hidden.You
are a desire creeper for Rādhikā’s abhisāra. When, oh
when, will that day come when you will bestow your
mercy upon me?

Seeing tree stumps on the way to abhisāra
during the night, Rādhikā’s face becomes
completely pale. She thinks that the very
persons She is concealing Herself from,
are standing there. You will say, “Oh
Rādhe! Do not worry. They are only tree
stumps, not people.” You are a desire
creeper for Rādhikā’s abhisāra. When, oh
when, will that day come when you will
bestow your mercy upon me?

Being very pleased with you, Rādhikā will
keep Her arm on your shoulder during her
abhisāra towards Kṛṣṇa. You will wrap a cloth
around Her ankle bells so that no noise
should be heard. In serving to conceal
Rādhikā from Her superiors, you very cleverly
arrange for whatever She requires at any
moment. You are a desire creeper for
cheating and tricking Her superiors. When, oh
when, will that day come when you will
bestow your mercy upon me?

To best train and prepare Rādhikā for
abhisāra at night, you place thorns here
and there and pour water on the ground to
make it muddy. Then you assist Rādhikā in
practicing how to perfectly walk in the
forest for abhisāra on a slippery, dark and
rainy night. To teach Her abhisāra, you are
a desire creeper. When, oh when, will that
day come when you will bestow your
mercy upon me?

To nourish Rādhikā’s enchanting and
inconceivable mood of māna or sulkiness,
you always consult with Kṛṣṇa’s priyanarmāsakhās like Subala and Ujjwal. You
are a desire-creeper for increasing the
intensity of Rādhā’s sulky mood. When,
oh when, will that day come when you will
bestow your mercy upon me?

Being victorious in a serious debate
against Kṛṣṇa, the son of the king of Vraja,
you, among Lalitā’s associates, received
the mercy of Rāseśvarī. You are a desire
creeper because of receiving mercy from
Rāseśvarī. When, oh when, will that day
come when you will bestow your mercy
upon me?

Upon hearing this new, astonishing,
unprecedented and ever-fresh prayer
about you, kindly give me some place
within the associates of Lalitadevi
and make me your eternal bosom
friend.
