rupadhyana karun jaba govinda radhe
ninda meri sauta bani ake sula de
O Radhe Govinda! When I practice rupadhyana, meditation on Your divine form, sleep comes to me like a co-wife and takes me away to doze. Rupadhyana and sleep are the two co-wives vying for the attention of the mind.
mujhase na hogi bhakti govinda radhe
mainne hara mani bhakti shakti te kara de
O Lord! I am utterly incapable of performing any devotional practice. I admit defeat. Use Your power to get me to practice devotion.
sunane men sarala bhakti govinda radhe
karane men kathina vaya sarala bana de
Devotion sounds like a very simple path, but it is very difficult in practice. O Radhe Govinda! Make it simple for me.
