Jayadeva Ashtapathi 3: 



Alternate names

Lalitha Lavanga, Lalita lavamga,
Viharati Harir iha, Viharathi Haririha

Context and Meaning

Our story proper starts just before this ashtapadi. It’s springtime, and poor Radha is desperately looking for Krishna, and asks a friend if she knows where is. She sure does! She delicately describes the beauties of the spring season and how Krishna is frolicking in the Yamuna woods with other gopis! This is just the beginning…
