|santa jana baraha masa basanta |
The Special Sweetness of Spiritual Principles
santa jana baraha masa basanta
For the devotees of madhurya bhava, it is always the spring season.
piu piu kahi kahi chhina chhina nishidina, kukata kokila santa
Like the cuckoo in spring, they constantly call out to their Beloved, "piu, piu."
kabahumka jharata drigana amsuvana janu, jhara taru-patra ananta
They constantly shed tears for their Beloved, just as the trees shed leaves in springtime.
kabahumka jhumi jhumi madhukara janu, gunagunata guna kanta
They sing the glories of their Beloved, intoxicated with love, just like intoxicated droning bees in the springtime!
kabahum pramatta phula sarasom janu, phuli phuli harashanta
Their hearts blossom with emotions of love, and in that intoxicated state resemble the blossoming mustard plants in spring.
prema basanta 'kripalu' nitya raha, rasa sarasanta na anta
Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj says, "The season of love in the form of spring, lasts forever for these Rasika Saints and keeps them immersed in divine bliss for eternity."
