Jayadeva Ashtapathi 5: 

#5 संचरदधर (Sancarad Adhara or Raase Harimiha)

Context and Meaning 

The last two ashtapadis were Radha's friend describing in gory detail all the fun Krishna was having with other gopis. Radha becomes very sad on hearing this — Krishna seems to see her just as he sees any other gopi! What could be more cruel than indifference from a loved one? She goes into a quiet bower, and tearfully tells her friend that all she can think about is Krishna. A beautiful description of Krishna as remembered by Radha is the content of this ashtapadi.


Lyrics

Radha secretly complains to her confidante about Krishna's behavior. They were in a cottage under a bower filled with buzzing sound of bees. She tells her how Krishna was neglecting her and sporting with many other shepherd maids in Brundavana. She laments that she lost her dignity and that she was burning with envy.

Oh dear friend, Krishna is playing on his flute Mohana melodiously. Nectar-like music is flowing out from his lip movements. While he is glancing around ,peacock feathers on his head and his ear hangings are shaking beautifully. He is delightfully enjoying 'Rasaleela' dance in Brundavana with other maids. I feel very slighted but my mind thinks of him only always.

Dear friend, Sri Krishna is delightfully kissing youthful Gopikas.His lips are sweet like 'Bandu' flowers and his arms are soft like tender leaves. His smile is radiating. Though he is ignoring me, I am unable to stop thinking about him.
