Oh Lord, you thoroughly seem to enjoy yourself in the RASA-dance.
In MADHUVANA situated on the banks of river KALINDI
Your rich tresses are adorned with he feather of peacock. you are adorned with gem studded ornaments, you are wearing yellow silk.
The beauty of your form subdues the pride of Cupid. You have a smiling countenance. Your glory is sung by sages. Oh KESAVA! You are the personification of purity and divinity on earth.
Oh RAMARAMANA! You are dancing amidst the cowherd damsels, who are overwhelmed with the sentiment of love. You give them immence joy by playing the flute. You also nod your head and show your appreciation of their music while dancing with them by tapping your feet. The jingling sound of your glittering, gem studded anklets surpasses the chirping of swan.
You tease those maidens by various ways; by offering TAMBULA-betel leaves, kissing them and extending your arm outwardly to embrace them. By all these amorous games you enchant them and drown them in ecstacy. Your dance performance wins the adulation of celestials who have assembled above in the sky. Oh most exquisitely beautiful JALAJANABHA! one who obliterates the sorrows of those who surrender unto you! You are rejoicing in RASA dance!
