These 97 devotional poems exemplify the mischievousness, playfulness, and flirtatiousness of Shri Krishna in His infant and childlike form. The place of these charming depictions is Braja, the divine abode, where little Krishna s daring escapades are always frolicsome, delightful, and captivating. Far from being a spectator who just looks on in admiration, these bhakti songs are an invitation to become an active participant through loving remembrance.
This is the seventh chapter of the glorious anthology of classical poetry on devotion, The Intoxicating Bliss of Divine Love, the English translation of Prem Ras Madira. The extraordinary divine plays depicted in the 1008 devotional poems of Prem Ras Madira are in accordance with the scriptural laws of the Vedas, Puranas, Upanishads, and so on.
