Sri Banke Bihari ke sawaiya, 6 of 144

६.
वसुधा के सुधा जग की सुखमा, मुनि मानस मंजु राधिका के ।
सुख कन्द सदाँ दुख द्वन्द दरें, सुर सिद्धन सिद्धि समाधिका के ॥
छवि छैल ‘छबीले’ रँगीले लसै, ब्रजवासिन कारज साधिका के ।
नन्दनन्दन वन्दत आनन्दसों, पद पंकज वन्दत राधिका के ॥

A Bhakti poet named Chabeele has written these sawaiya verses in praise of Sri Krishna and Radhika. The poet praises Krishna as the elixir of this earth, the joy of the world, the one who lives in hearts and minds of pure souls (Munis), and one is Radha’s treasure. Krishna, who is attractive and helps the people of Braj accomplish their potential. Chabeele says, “Joyously, I worship Krishna, who in turn adores Radhika.”
