The Suffering Of Radha Poem by Varanasi Ramabrahmam

The Suffering Of Radha

Rating: 5.0

Radha is experiencing sweet painful aches
Is in amorous mood and is teased by three naughty Lords

Moon, the Lord of the night sky
The dear enemy of lovers
Is piercingly touching Radha with his pleasant and cooling rays
And is making her unable to bear the separation from Madhava

Cupid, the formless Lord of Love who causes
Wounds unseen with his flower-arrows
Is 'torturing' Radha stirring deep emotions
Fanning the flames of intense longing for union with Madhava

Madhava, the Lord of her heart who shares
Heart and sweet and delightful conversations with her
Has not yet arrived at the meeting place
To share her everything
While Radha has reached the spot as Abhisarika [1]
And is waiting suffering from the pangs of separation and desire

Radha's body and mind are experiencing
Sweet painful aches by the naughtiness of the three Lords

She is wondering with intense feeling:
'We loved each other by exchanging love-jasmine garlands
When will Madhava and the blissful moments arrive
And both of us disrobe ourselves and merge in each other'

Radha and Madhava are eternal lovers of Brindavana on the banks of river

[1] The youthful girl is deep love who arrives at the mutually informed and agreed to place on her own for love-making with her beloved.

Telugu Original: 'Challani devula allarilo Radha'

On Radha and Madhaba’s exalted and exuberance Love many poems have been written…and will be in future… Here you’ve achefully portrayed the Divine Separation between them… and very much appealing…in this Separation…Divine Joy is found and Radha knew it well as Radha’s love was A-haituki [without expectation of return …she stayed happy if Madhaba is happy...her happiness is no matter] …unidirectional love for Love only and alone …it is described Highest embodiment of Love…Thanks Sir for such a great poem 10+ Ms. Nivedita UK
