Shri radhikashtakam with English Meaning

 

 

 

kumkumakt-kaanchanabja-garv-haari-gaurbha

peetnanchitabja-gandh-kirti-nind-saurabha

ballavesh-soonu-sarva-vanchitartha-sadhika

mahyamaatm-pada-padma-daasya-daastu Radhika.1

 

कुङ्कुमाक्त काञ्चनाब्ज गर्वहारि गौरभा,

पीतनाञ्चिताब्जगन्धकीर्तिनिन्दसौरभा ।

वल्लवेशसूनु सर्ववाञ्छितार्थसाधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदाऽस्तु राधिका ॥ १॥

 

Her splendrous golden complexion steals the pride of a golden lotus flower anointed with a tinge of red kunkum powder. Her sweet fragrance mocks the fame of the aroma of a lotus flower sprinkled with saffron powder. She is fully qualified to fulfill all the desires of the son of the king of cowherd men. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (1)

कौरविन्दकान्तनिन्दचित्रपत्रशाटिका,

कृष्णमत्तभृङ्गकेलि फुल्लपुष्पवाटिका ।

कृष्णनित्यसङ्गमार्थपद्मबन्धुराधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदाऽस्तु राधिका ॥ २॥

 

Her amazing and colorful silken garments make the splendour of coral feel ashamed. She is a garden of blossoming flowers where the maddened bumblebee named Krishna performs amorous pastimes. She worships the Sun-god daily in order to attain the continual association of Her beloved Krishna. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (2)

सौकुमार्यसृष्टपल्लवालिकीर्तिनिग्रहा,

चन्द्रचन्दनोत्पलेन्दुसेव्यशीतविग्रहा ।

स्वाभिमर्शवल्लवीशकामतापबाधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदाऽस्तु राधिका ॥ ३॥

 

Her charming youthful delicacy negates the fame of freshly-sprouted leaves. Her refreshing form is worthy of being served by the cooling moon, sandalwood paste, lotus flowers, and camphor. When She touches the master of the gopis, She dispels the burning heat of His lusty desires. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (3)

विश्ववन्द्ययौवताभिवन्दतापि या रमा,

रूपनव्ययौवनादिसम्पदा न यत्समा ।

शीलहार्दलीलया च सा यतोऽस्ति नाधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदास्तु राधिका ॥ ४॥

 

Although the goddess of fortune Lakshmi Devi is adored by other youthful goddesses, who are themselves glorified throughout all the universe, still she is nowhere near Sri Radhika in the matter of beauty, praiseworthy youthfulness, or other divine feminine opulences. There is no one in the material or spiritual worlds superior to Radhika in the expression of naturally loving pastimes. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (4)

प्रेमरम्यरूपवेशसद्गुणालिमण्डिता ।

विश्वनव्यगोपयोषिदालितोपि याऽधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदाऽस्तु राधिका ॥ ५

 

She is very learned in many transcendental arts, such as performing in the rasa dance, singing, and joking. She is decorated with many divine qualities, such as loving nature, exquisite beauty, and wonderful garments and ornaments. Even among the cowherd damsels of Vraj, who are praised by the entire universe, She is the best in every way. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (5)

नित्यनव्यरूपकेलिकृष्णभावसम्पदा,

कृष्णरागबन्धगोपयौवतेषु कम्पदा ।

कृष्णरूपवेशकेलिलग्नसत्समाधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदाऽस्तु राधिका ॥ ६॥

 

She possesses the opulence’s of eternal youthful beauty, eternal pastimes, and eternal love for Krishna. Her ecstatic feelings of love for Krishna cause the gopis, who are also in love with Krishna, to tremble. She is always attached to meditating on Sri Krishna’s beautiful form, ornaments, garments, and pastimes. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (6)

स्वेदकम्पकण्टकाश्रुगद्गदादिसञ्चिता,

मर्षहर्षवामतादि भावभूषणाञ्चिता ।

कृष्णनेत्रतोषिरत्नमण्डनालिदाधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदाऽस्तु राधिका ॥ ७॥

 

She is graced with the eight ecstatic symptoms (saattvik-bhava), such as trembling, perspiring, standing up of bodily hairs, tears, faltering of the voice, and so forth. She is adorned with different ecstatic emotional ornaments, such as impatience, joy, contrariness, and so forth. She is decorated with beautiful jewels that give total delight to the eyes of Krishna. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (7)

या क्षणार्धकृष्णविप्रयोगसन्ततोदिता-,

नेकदैन्यचापलादिभाववृन्दमोदिता ।

यत्नलब्धकृष्णसङ्गनिर्गताखिलाधिका,

मह्यमात्मपादपद्मदास्यदाऽस्तु राधिका ॥ ८॥

 

If She is apart from Krishna for even half a moment, She becomes stricken with wretched suffering, restlessness, and a multitude of other ecstatic symptoms of separation. When She regains the association of Krishna after some effort, then all Her anguish immediately vanishes. May Sri Radhika always bestow upon me the service of Her own lotus feet. (8)

 

ashtaken yas tvanen nauti krishn-vallabham

darshane ‘pi shailjaadi-yoshidaali-durlabhaam

krishn-sang-nand-taatm-daasya-seedhu-bhaajnam

tam karoti nandtaali-sanchayashu sa janam.9

 

अष्टकेन यस्त्वनेन नौति कृष्णवल्लभां,

दर्शनेऽपि शैलजादियोषिदालिदुर्लभाम् ।

कृष्णसङ्गनन्दतात्मदास्यसीधुभाजनं,

तं करोति नन्दतालिसञ्चयाशु सा जनम् ॥ ९॥

 

It is very difficult for Parvati and other exalted goddesses to attain even a glimpse of Srimati Radharani, who is dear to Lord Krishna. But if someone glorifies Her by reciting these eight verses, then She who is delighted by Krishna’s continuous association will grant the sweet nectar of Her personal service to that person, who thereby enters the assembly of Her similarly delighted girlfriends. (9)
