tu hi sancho natedara govinda radhe
jaga ke to natedara svarathi bata de
All worldly relations are based on selfish interests. O Radhe Govinda! Only You are my true relations.
parha suna samajhaya govinda radhe
mana ne na mana tu hi mana ko mana de
I have read, heard and even explained to others what is to be done, but my mind has not accepted it practically. O Radhe Govinda! Only You can make my mind accept this.
jana bhi mana bhi govinda radhe
kintu parantu mana phira bhi laga de
I got to know the true path and even accepted it as correct. But when it came to practice, the mind always came up with ifs and buts and stopped me from practicing devotion.
