Sri Banke Bihari ji ke sawaiya, 2 of 144

Banke Bihari Temple (Vrindavan, India)

२.
अंग ही अंग जड़ाऊ जड़े, अरु सीस बनी पगिया जरतारी ।
मोतिन माल हिये लटकै, लटुबा लटकै लट घूँघर वारी ॥
पूरब पुन्य तें ‘रसखानि’ ये माधुरी मूरति आय निहारी ।
चारो दिशा की महा अघनाशक, झाँकी झरोखन बाँके बिहारी ॥

Meaning of this sawaiya by Bhakti poet Raskhan:

Sri Banke Bihari is bejewelled with gemstone ornaments and he is wearing an elaborate head-dress a pagari embellished in zari-zardozi metallic threads. A pearl necklace around his neck is touching his heart, and his curly hair frames the face. Raskhan says that it is my love for Bihari ji from an earlier lifetime that brings me here to Vrindavan, where I come to admire my beloved Sri Banke Bihari ji through the framed doorway to his room :-)
