Swami Sri Haridas’s Ashtadash Sidhant, Verse 3, An ode to Sri Banke Bihari

श्री कुंजविहारिणे नमः

॥राग विभास॥

कबहूं कबहूं मन इत उत जात याते अब कौन अधिक सुख।

बहुत भांतिन घत आनि राख्यो नाहिंतौ पावतौ दुःख॥

कोटि काम लावण्य बिहारी ताके, मुंहाचुहीं सब सुख लिये रहत रुख।

श्री हरिदास के स्वामी स्यामा कुंजबिहारी कों, दिन देखत रहौ विचित्र मुख॥

Sri Haridas ji says, ‘Many times the mind gets distracted but there is no pleasure in that. I bring it back to my center, else this mind would make me very unhappy. Sri Banke Bihari’s divine beauty is so enticing and the greatest of pleasures. With wonder and adoration I look at my masters Sri Radha Rani and Sri Krishna.’
