LYRIC

Vrndávanaṁ parityajya
Pádamekaṁ na gacchámi;
Pashyámi yat yada yadá
Vrajabhávam na vismarámi.

Vadantu yad mahájanáh
Nindantu yad niitinipuńáh;
Bháśante yad prájinajanáh
Bhávagokule dhitisthámi.

Kule kule niipatamále
Priiti-vrndávane atule;
Yamunákúle suniile
Prakato hamevan vadámi..

Leaving Vrindavana
I shall not take even a step away;
Whatever I see and whenever I see it,
I shall never forget my sweet Vraja mood.

Whatever the big people may say,
However much the ethicists may censure,
Whatever the wise may lecture,
In the Gokula of ideation
I shall ever remain ensconced.

Along the banks of rivers and under the niipa and tamála trees
Of Vrindavana, the matchless land of love,
On the shores of the blue Yamuna,
I assure you, I shall ever be manifest.
