    Re: VaishNav Oasis

    Namaste Smaranam ji,

    I have documented elsewhere a long time ago (to which you commented too) about a particularly emotionally charged and kinda dangerous phase I went through during my younger years... in those moments Sri Krishna's Raas-Lilas, and other activities of his as documented in Srimad Bhagawatham 10th Kanto used to give me such peace, joy and mental relief. The anubhavam I used to feel cannot be expressed in words... of all the Gopis lying to their parents to be with Krishna by the river Yamuna in the night and Sri Krishna playing his melodious flute for them...

    I think aspirant bhaktas could all gather together once a fortnight and rejoice speaking and reading about the tales of Sri Krishna's childhood adventures when he was in Vrindavana... they would bring more love and benevolence in the disposition of all aspirants! Afterall, spirituality means humility, love and benevolence!

    The only thing I would suggest, if I am kindly permitted to do so, is to accompany such wonderful posts with suitable pictures....

    Namaste Virajaji

    Good idea, and well said about humility, love, benevolence. Nice and simple. Sure pictures speak a thousand words. On this particular thread it is all videos, that takes care of it, but yes, we do have Hari KathA threads in the purAN sections too, where pictures would have really made a difference.

    jayatiteadhikam janmanA vraja shrayata IndirA shAshvatatrahi... (Gopi geet SB Canto 10.31)

    It is well documented by the experts that rAs-panchAdhyAy (the 5 core chapters of Bhagvat canto 10 -- the shrAvaN full moon , veNu geet by Gopis, KRshNa plays flute, Gopis leave all tasks and run to the forest, KRshNa disappears, Gopis sing Gopi Geet, KRshNa reappears, RAs - lIlA ) -- these 5 chapters when read (shravaNam) brings utmost peace to the shrotA (listner) and s/he becomes free of desires.

    Your anubhav is exactly according to that. Yes, I do remember your posts about the young days -- regular intense worship of NArAyaN and also vividly remember NArAyaN on the ocean and 10 yr old Lakshmi (please don;t be annoyed that I brought it up here )

    It is pleasant of you to remember what I wrote a long time ago, Smaranam ji! Although I have to say, there is definitely a certain amount of 'pride' element in me having conveyed those dreams earlier, there was also a lot of 'joy' element too! Such spiritual packed days did not come to me after those younger years of strife!

    I think it was in the right context of discussion that you shared the dreams and it gave us joy as readers. It also may have boosted someone's faith. So please don't be so hard on yourself.

    * PanDharpUr - the place of Vitthal (Dwarkadheesh KRshNa), is in the Indian state of Maharashtra, close to Karnataka border, hence this song refers to Vitthal as a KAnaDA , from Karnataka. Twice every year an ocean of 'Varkari' devotees walk or travel to Pandharpur to meet Vitthal.
    * The language is old Marathi - notice the ending in 'u'
    * This composition is by DnyAneshwar Maharaj and the rendetion by singer Asha Bhosle - music by HRudaynath Mangeshkar (brother)
    * Very profound and astonishingly aligns with the experience of any devotee

    namaskAr Ratikala ji
    Certainly

    Language: Braj-bhAshA tending towards GujarAthI

    mIThe rasa se bharyo Di rAdhArANi lAge, mahArANi lAge
    mane kAro kAro yamunAji ro pANI lAGe

    Radharani, our Queen is full of sweet rasa, just as the dark (black) [thirst-quenching] water of the YamunA ji (Deity of Yamuna river) tastes sweet and full of rasa.
    i.e. In Her association, one feels just like you do on drinking the sweet black [thirst-quenching] water of the Yamuna


    Jamuna maiya kArI kArI, rAdhA gori gori
    Vrindavan mein dhoom machawe barsanari chhori
    BrajdhAm rAdhA ju ki rajadhAni laage..rajadhAni laage..
    mane karo karo yamunAji ro pANi lAge

    Mother Yamuna however, is black/dark (black waters), but Radha is very fair
    This girl from Barsana enlivens Vrundavan by Her existence
    Therefore this holy land of Braja appears to be the central capital city of our dear Radha ju ['s abode]
    Just as the black water of yamuna quenches the thirst, so does this holy Braja because of this

    Kanha nita murali mein thare, sumire barambaar
    [dekho] Kotin roop dhare manmohan tahun na pAwe pAra
    Roop rang ki chhabili paTarANi lage..paTarANi lage
    mane karo karo yamunAji no pANi lage …

    She is always eternally entwined in KAnhA (KRshNa) 's [thoughts and hence] Flute notes
    Look, this mind-enchanter Manmohan takes a zillion forms to cross [the river] to meet Her
    She is His most favorite Queen Who is most beautiful and very fair [the purest devotee]
    Feels just like you do on drinking the sweet black [thirst-quenching] water of the Yamuna

    NA bhAve mane mAkhaN mishri abb nA koi miThAi
    MAri jeebharia mein bhAwe ab to rAdhA naam malaai
    Vrishbhanu ki lali toh guDadhaani lage,guDadhaani lAge..
    mane karo karo yamunAji ro pANi lAge


    I do not like sweetened butter or sweet delicacies anymore
    In my heart I now have one and only thing -- this sweet cream of Radha's holy name
    This dear daughter of VrishabhAnu is sweet like jaggery [ made straight from sugarcane ]
    Feels just like you do on drinking the sweet black [thirst-quenching] water of the Yamuna


    rAdhA rAdhA Naam Ratat Hai jo Nar AaThon YAma
    [dekho] Dil Ki Badha Door Karat Hai, rAdhA rAdhA NAma
    rAdhA nAma mein safal zindagANi lage..zindagANi lAge..
    mane kAro kAro yamunAji ro pANi lAge


    The human being that chants Radha's name throughout the eight periods of the day [ashTa prahar -- the day is divided into 8 prahar also referred in Hindustani Classical Music]
    Look what that does! Radha's Holy Name drives away the disease i.e. the blemish and flaws of the heart -- makes it pure
    [Therefore] I think that this life is a success by chanting Radha's name
    Feels just like you do on drinking the sweet black [thirst-quenching] water of the Yamuna

    to bolo rAdhe rAdhe, rAdhe rAdhe rAdhe rAdhe rAdhe rAdhe ...


    ---
    P.S. a) it is mane not mann b) jamunaji ro (= janumaji's) , not jeero as one word which means cumin
