Braj ke dohe, sawaiya, 47 of 144, Literature from Vrindavan

४७.

सोहत है चंदवा सिर मोर के तैसी ये सुन्दर पाग कसी है।

तैसी ये गोरज भाल विराजत तैसी हिये बनमाल लसी है॥

‘रसखान’ विलोकत बौरी भई दृग मूंदि के ग्वाल पुकारि हंसीहै।

खोलरी घूंघट खोलू कहा वह मूरति नैनन मांझ बसी है॥४७॥

Bhakti poet, Raskhan says: ‘Krishna is so attractive…He has a peacock feather tucked in his turban. His face is powdered with dust that settles down after clouds of dust are raised by his herd of cows walking in Vraj, and a beautiful garland of flowers from the jungle graces his chest. Seeing Krishna’s wonderful presence, i close my eyes in bliss. A cowherd boy laughs on seeing my state and asks me to wake up. I say, why should I open my eyes when wondrous Krishna is in my eyes. What else is there to see?’

This is Bhakti Yoga :-)
