Sri Banke Bihari ji ke sawaiya, 8 of 144

८.
सारी सँवारी है सोन जुही की, चमेली की तापे लगाई किनारी ।
पंकज के दल को लहंगा, अँगिया गुलबाँस की शोभित न्यारी ॥
बेला को हार गुलाब की दाउदी, चम्पा की बेंदी है भाल सँवारी ।
आज विचित्र बनी छवि देख री, कैसी शृन्गारी है प्यारे ने प्यारी ॥

This verse appreciates how Krishna has dressed up Sri Radha Rani with flowers. The sari is made of Juhi jasmine buds, Chameli, another variety of jasmine is used to decorate the edging of the sari. Lotus petals make up the lehanga skirt. The blouse is made of fragrant roses. Bela jasmine flowers make up the garland around her neck with a rose pendant. Champa flowers make the maang-tika bendi, an ornament to decorate the hair parting and forehead. Sri Radha Rani is looking lovely, decorated with so much love and care by beloved Krishna.
