Radhika Stava: the Glory of Srimati Radharani
by Srila Rupa Goswami

Glories, Glories to Sri Radharani, the beloved of Madhava and most worshipable of the the cowherd girls of Gokula Mandala!

Decorated by the dress of Lord Damodara’s increasing ecstasy, You are the lady of the house of Lord Hari and the groves of Vrndavana.

From the ocean of Vrsabhanu has arisen a new moon which is overwhelming the qualities of Lalita and Visakha.

O Goddess, Your qualities are described by Sanaka and Sanatana Rsis and by Sanatana Goswami. Please bestow your mercy upon me.

Full song in Sanskrit

rādhe jaya jaya mādhava-dayite
gokula-taruṇī-maṇḍala-mahite
(refrain)

dāmodara-rati-vardhana-veśe
hari-niṣkuṭa-vṛndā-vipineśe

vṛṣabhānūdadhi-nava-śaśi-lekhe
lalitā-sakhi guṇa-ramita-viśākhe

karuṇāḿ kuru mayi karuṇā-bharite
sanaka-sanātana-varṇita-carite

[Full song in Sanskrit with word for word transliteration and English Translation]

Decorated by the dress of Lord Damodara’s increasing ecstasy, You are the lady of the house of Lord Hari and the groves of Vrndavana.

vṛṣabhānu-udadhi–from the ocean of King Vṛṣabhānu; nava-śaśi-lekhe–O goddess of the newly-arisen moon!; lalitā-sakhi–O friend of Lalitā!; guṇa–due to Your wonderful qualities; ramita-viśākhe– O You who give intimate pleasure to Viśākhā!;

From the ocean of Vrsabhanu has arisen a new moon which is overwhelming the qualities of Lalita and Visakha.

karuṇāḿ kuru mayi karuṇā-bharite
sanaka-sanātana-varṇita-carite

karuṇām kuru–please be merciful; mayi–to me; karuṇā-bharite–O You who are filled with compassion!; sanaka-sanātana–by the great sages Sanaka and Sanātana; varṇita carite–O You whose divine characteristics are described!
