Translation :


Krishna is the lover of Radha. He displays many amorous pastimes in the groves of Vrindavana, He is the lover of
the cowherd maidens of Vraja, the holder of the great hill named Govardhana, the beloved son of mother
Yasoda, the delighter of the inhabitants of Vraja, and He wanders in the forests along the banks of the
River Yamuna.
(Srila Prabhupada was very fond of this song and sang it just before his lectures. In Allahabad and Gorakhpur
Srila Prabhupada fell into a trance after singing the first two lines, and after some time he came back into
external consciousness and said, "Now just chant Hare Krishna." Srila Prabhupada said that this song is "a picture
of Vrindavana. Everything is there—Srimati Radharani, Vrindavana, Govardhana, Yasoda, and all the
cowherd boys.")
