(Intense, Eager Longing for the Highest Spiritual Perfection)
Song Eight (Siddha Deha)
varaṇe taḍita bāsa tārābalī
kamala mañjarī nāma
sāḍe bāra barṣa bayasa satata
1) This maidservant has a complexion just like lightning, and she is wearing a sari which has star like decorations all over it. My name is Kamala Mañjarī. Eternally appearing to be only twelve-and-a-half years of age, I always live within the abode of Svānanda-sukhadā-kuñja.
karpūra sebā lalitāra gaṇa
rādhā yutheśvarī hana
mameśvarī-nātha śrī nanda-nandana
āmāra parāṇa dhana
2) I render the service of preparing the camphor within the assembly of Lalitā Sakhī, of whom Śrī Rādhā is the leader and the center of all their activities. And the Lord of my mistress Rādhā is the delightful Son of Nanda Mahārāja, Who is also the treasure of my life.
śrī rūpa mañjari prabhṛtira sama
yugala sebāya āśa
abaśya se-rūpa sebā pābo āmi
3) I always desire to execute conjugal service similar to that which is rendered by Śrī Rūpa Mañjarī and her associates. Thus I will certainly get utmost conviction and faith.
kabe bā e dāsī saṁsiddhi labhibe
rādhā-kuṇḍe bāsa kori
rādhā-kṛṣṇa-seba satata koribe
pūrba smṛti parihari
4) When will this maidservant thus attain such complete spiritual perfection, living by the banks of Śrī Rādhā-kuṇḍa? I will eternally serve Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa, and all of my previous memories will be automatically forgotten.
