Sung to Raga Vibhasa

Sung to Raga Vibhasa

Come, Radha, come. Krishna follows your
every desire.

‘Soil my bed with indigo footprints, Kamini,
lay waste the grove
savage it with your petal-soft feet.

‘I take your feet in lotus hands, Kamini,
you have come far.
Lay those gold flaring anklets across my bed.

‘Let yes yes flow from your mouth like amrita.
From your breasts, Kamini,
I draw off the dukula-cloth. We are no longer separate.’

–from the Gitagovinda (xii.2, 3, 4) by Jayadeva

Oxford Anthology of Bhakti Literature (2011:69)


About ~Gurudevi

Gurudevi Ma, Satguru Shri Mahashaktiananda The path of yoga is meant to be practiced as a devotional experience in loving God and the Goddess in all manifestions. In the teachings of yoga a student is a yogi or yogini; man or woman. Spiritual teachers may be referred to as gurudev or gurudevi. I am grateful to my personal guru, Premavatar Paramahansa Yogananda, and other great masters who have assisted me. It is a blessing to practice and teach yoga. Wherever we are, is where we should blossom. God/dess is everywhere." Aum
