Description of Sri Radhika's Birth
srutva tada saunaka bhakti-yuktah
sri-maithilo jnana-bhritam varishthah
natva punah praha munim mahantam
Sri Garga Muni said: O Saunaka, when Bahulasva, the king of
Mithila, who was filled with faith and devotion to Lord Hari and
who was the best of the wise, heard this, he again bowed down and
spoke to the great sage Narada, the best of the devarshis.
tvaya kulam kau visadi-kritam me
subham harer yad yasasamalena
jano 'pi sat syad bahuna kim u svit
Sri Bahulasva said: By giving it the narrations of Lord
Hari's pure glories you purified my materialistic family and made it
auspicious. By a moment's touch with Lord Krishna's devotee even an
ordinary person will become a saint. What more need I say?
sri-radhaya purnatamas tu sakshad
gatva vraje kim caritam cakara
tad bruhi me deva rise risisa
tri-tapa-duhkhat paripahi mam tvam
What did the Supreme Personality of Godhead do when He came
with Sri Radha to Vraja? O Lord, O great sage, please tell me. O
king of the sages, please save me from the three miseries.
dhanyam kulam yan nimina nripena
purni-kritam yatra bhavan prajatah
suktau hi mukta-bhavanam na citram
Sri Narada said: The family of your birth is fortunate for
it was made perfect by King Nimi, who was a very great devotee of
Lord Krishna. It is not surprising that a pearl is born in an
atha prabhos tasya pavitra-lilam
su-mangalam samsrinutam parasya
abhut satam yo bhuvi rakshanartham
na kevalam kamsa-vadhaya krishnah
Please hear the purifying pastimes of the Supreme
Personality of Godhead. The Lord did not only come to kill Kamsa.
He also came to protect the devotees.
athaiva radha vrisabhanu-patnyam
avesya rupam mahasah parakhyam
su-mandire savatatara rajan
Then, placing Her glorious transcendental form in (the womb
of) King Vrishabhanu's wife, Sri Radha descended into a great
palace in a garden by the Yamuna's shore.
ghanavrite vyomni dinasya madhye
bhadre site naga-tithau ca some
avakiran deva-ganah sphuradbhis
tan-mandire nandanajaih prasunaih
In the month of Bhadra (August-September), on a Monday that
was the eighth day of the bright fortnight of the moon, at
midday, when the sky was covered with clouds, (to celebrate
Radha's descent) the demigods scattered flowers that had
blossomed in the Nandana gardens.
radhavatarena tada babhuvur
nadyo 'malambhas ca disah praseduh
vavus ca vata aravinda-ragaih
Because of Radha's descent the rivers became very pure and
clear, the directions became auspicious and happy, and graceful,
gentle, cooling breezes carried the pollen of lotus flowers.
drittvatha kirtir mudam apa gopi
subham vidhayasu dadau dvijebhyo
dvi-laksham ananda-karam gavam ca
Gazing at her daughter beautiful as hundreds of moons, the
gopi Kirti became happy. To bring auspiciousness she gave two
hundred thousand cows in charity to please the brahmanas.
