Mamiyam Chalitha – Ashtapadhi 7

The camera now pans to Krishna. All this while, Radha’s friend was telling her about all the fun Krishna was having without her. Turns out, it’s not quite true. It is revealed here that Radha had first seen Krishna with other gopis, and had stormed away in anger. The friend was merely amplifying her observations! This ashtapadi is in the first person, and almost reads like a diary entry of a troubled Krishna. “Oh no, what should I do? I didn’t even stop her when she stormed away!”, he worries, and imagines a conversation he’d have with her if he met her.

Sri Krishna was hit by Manmadha’s arrows and repented for causing pain to Radha. He roamed hither and thither in Brundavana for her. At last he sat sadly in a cottage by the side of Yamuna river.

Oh Radha, pardon me for my offence. I’ll never repeat such mistake. Please appear before me. Cupid is tormenting me.

Poet Jayadeva born in ‘Bindu Bilva’ lineage made his lineage glorious like the moon brightens the star-lit sky. He describes with utmost devotion, Krishna’s love for Radha.
