Sakhī-vṛnde Vijñapti
Rādhā Kṛṣṇa Prāṇa Mora
Prayer to the Sakhīs
(from Prārthanā)

Text 1
rādhā-kṛṣṇa prāṇa mora jugala-kiśora
jīvane maraṇe gati āro nāhi mora

The divine couple, Śrī Śrī Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa, are my life and soul. In life or death I have no other refuge but Them.

Text 2
kālindīra kūle keli-kadambera vana
ratana-bedīra upara bosābo du’jana

In a forest of small kadamba trees on the bank of the Yamunā, I will seat the divine couple on a throne made of brilliant jewels.

Text 3
śyāma-gaurī-aṅge dibo (cūwā) candanera gandha
cāmara ḍhulābo kabe heri mukha-candra

I will anoint Their dark and fair forms with sandalwood paste scented with cūyā, and I will fan Them with a cāmara whisk. Oh, when will I behold Their moonlike faces?

Text 4
gāthiyā mālatīr mālā dibo dohāra gale
adhare tuliyā dibo karpūra-tāmbūle

After stringing together garlands of mālatī flowers I will place them around Their necks, and I will offer tāmbūla scented with camphor to Their lotus mouths.

Text 5
lalitā viśākhā-ādi jata sakhī-bṛnda
ājñāya koribo sebā caraṇāravinda

With the permission of all the sakhīs, headed by Lalitā and Viśākhā, I will serve the lotus feet of Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa.

Text 6
śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya-prabhur dāser anudāsa
sevā abhilāṣa kore narottama-dāsa

Narottama dāsa, the servant of the servant of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Prabhu, longs for this service to the divine couple.
