Sri Banke Bihari ji ke sawaiya, 18 of 144

१८.
राधिका कान्ह को ध्यान धरैं, तब कान्ह ह्वै राधिका के गुण गावैं ।
त्यों अँसुवा बरसैं बरसाने को पाती लिखैं लिखि राधे को ध्यावैं ॥
राधे ह्वै जायँ घरीक में ‘देव’ सु प्रेम की पाती लै छाती लगावैं ।
आपने आप ही में उरझैं सुरझैं , उरझैं, समुझैं समुझावैं ॥

This Braj sawaiya verse by poet Prem, says:

Radhika in her love for Krishna, begins to feel as Krishna and longs for Radhika. Tears of longing for Radha fill her eyes and she writes a letter for her and sends it to Barsana. Then quickly comes back to being Radhika and takes the letter and embraces it, close to her heart. The poet Prem says, this is how she engages in her love for Krishna. She meditates on him and becomes one with Him :-) and doesn’t know the difference between herself and Krishna when she thinks of Him.

१७.
कौन ठगौरी करी हरि आज बजाय के बाँसुरिया रँग भीनी ।
कान परी जिनके जिनके तिनकीं कुल लाज बिदा करि दीनी ॥
घूमैं घरी-घरी नंद के द्वार नवीनी कहा कहूँ वाल प्रवीनी ।
या ब्रजमण्डल में ‘रसखानि’ सो कौन भटू जो लटू नहिं कीनी ॥

Raskhan says in this sawaiya verse:

Hari is playing a mystic and charming tune on his flute. Whoever hears it comes looking for Him. He has charmed and attracted all Brajwasis. None is exempt.

Krishna playing flute in Vrindavan, Venugeet

१६.
मन मोहनलाल बड़ो छलिया, सखि वारू की भीति उठावत है ।
कर तोरत है नभ की कलियाँ, चट बन्द के फन्द लगावत है ॥
जहँ पौंन न जाय सकै, मुरली धुनि की तहँ दूती पठावत है ।
कहूँ चोर कहूँ दधि दानी बनैं, कहूँ साह लली बनि आवत है ॥

This sawaiya verse says:

Krishna is very naughty.… He sends the music of his flute as a messenger to places wherever even the breeze has no access!

Sri Bnake Bihari ke sawaiya, dohe१५.
काहे को वैद बुलावत हो, मोहि रोग लगाय के नारि गहो रे ।
हे मधुहा मधुरी मुसकान निहारे बिना, कहो कैसो जियो रे ॥
चन्दन लाय कपूर मिलाय, गुलाब छिपाय दुराय धरो रे ।
और इलाज कछू न बनै, ब्रजराज मिलैं सो इलाज करो रे ॥

This sawaiya verse from Vraj says:

Why do you call a physician to take care of my illness? How can I live without seeing the sweet smile of Krishna? You are taking trouble to mix herbs for medicine; sandalwood, rose and camphor… No treatment other than the meeting of Krishna will help me recover.

आपकी ओर की चाहैं लिखी, लिखि जात कथा उत मोहन ओर की ।
प्यारी दया करि वेगि मिलो, सहिजात व्यथा नहि मैंनमरोर की ॥
आपुहिं बाँचत अंग लगाबति, है किन आनी चिठी चितचोर की ।
राधिका मौन रही धरि ध्यान सो, है गई मूरति नन्दकिसोर की ॥

१२.
एक सखी घर सो निकसी, मानो चंदहि देन चली उपमा सी ।
कोऊ कहै यह काहू की नगरि, कोऊ कहै यह काहू की दासी ॥
मारग बीच मिले नंदनंदन, दै दई कूक मचाय के हाँसी ।
घूँघट को पट खैंच लियो, तब दोज की हो गई पूरनमासी ॥

This sawaiya verse from Vrindavan says: A young lady came out of her home. She was dazzling like the moon. People wondered who she was? Nandnandan Krishna saw her pass and quickly upturned the veil from her face. The face that was earlier showing like a sliver of the new moon, was now fully visible, a gorgeous full moon…
