Raadhaa

Saint Abhirama (Translated from Oriya by Brajakishore Das)

 

SAINT ABHIRAMA

(1903-1964)

Drink the nectar of Raadhaa’s name
Every day, every moment:
Meditate on Raadhaa,
The world can cause you no pain.

That which is called Raadhaa
Is a combination of two forms.
Listen how the flute so sweetly invites Raadhaa!

Raais the individual soul
While Dhaais the supreme goal,
Realise them through
Twenty-one thousand and six hundred breaths.

When Raadhaa and Maadhava
Pine for each other
It is the Maid that brings them together.

Says Abhirama, the possessed one.
Take Mohan to Srimati’s grove
And thence shall flow delight undefiled.
–Translated from Oriya by Brajakishore Das
