Chapter 13: Verse 111-120



111.When one remembers the two syllables of Radha’s name, sins, lamentation, death, sufferings, and a network of illusions all tremble in fear. Of this there is no doubt.

112.Thus you have heard a prayer describing the glories of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna. I have glorified Them as far as my own knowledge goes. I do not have the power to describe all of Their glories.

114.Your son will deliver the son of Kuvera, steal and eat the gopis’ yoghurt and ghee, kill Dhenukasura, eat the tala fruits in the forest,...

115. ...playfully kill Baka, Kesi, and Pralamba, deliver the brahmanas’ wives and enjoy eating their offering of delicious food and drink,...

116. ...stop the indra-yajna, protect Gokula from Indra, steal the gopis’ garments, make their vow successful,..

117. ...return their garments, give them the blessing they desired, and steal their hearts with the music of His flute.

118.On a springtime full-moon night, in the circle of the rasa dance, He will enjoy a beautiful and blissful rasa-dance festival.

119.He will enjoy with them, fulfil their desires, and happily play with them in the water.

120.Then, because of Sridama’s curse, for a hundred years He will be separated from Radha, the gopis, and the gopas.
