Shyama Shyam Geet, 11

piya ruchi mahan ruchi rakhen braja bama

seva soi jason sukha paven shyam shyama

The gopis exemplify selfless love. They never seek their own happiness; they always feel happy in the happiness of their Beloved Shyama Shyam.

 

shyam pyara karen chahe tadapave bama

chahe maren ghate nahin prema nishkama

The selfless love of the Brajagopis is such that whether Shyamasundara embraces them, leaves them to suffer the pangs of separation or even renounces them forever, it never wanes.

 

krodha bhi kripa hai shyam ki kaha bama

asuron ko mari diya nija divya dhama

The anger of Shyamasundara is just another manifestation of His mercy. Even demons like Kamsa who were killed by Him, attained Goloka as a consequence of dying at His hands!
