'Shri Krishna Karnamrita:' Thirtieth Shloka

nibaddha-murdhashjalir esha yace
daya-nidhe deva bhavat-kataksha-
dakshinya-leshena sakrin nishishca  

Simple Meaning:

The Sidelong Glance of Lord Krishna
O Lord ! O Ocean of Mercy! Placing together my hollowed hands, I raise them to my forehead (in salutation) and with extreme humility pray in an unconstrained voice that you irrigate me with a drop of your compassionate sidelong glance, just once.

The Rasa-laden Commentary:

Shri Bilavmangal Ji Ardently Longs for Lord Krishna

Apparently Shri Bilavmangal ji is ardently longs for Lord Krishna and prays,” O Ocean of Compassion! O Lord! Fixing my folded hands upon my head, I beg you with immense humility for one thing. I have no inhibition in expressing my wretched-wanting state, O Svami! I feel like revealing my pathetic lamenting openly in front of you. What should I say? To whom should I say? In front of whom should I explain the state of my mind and lighten the burden on my heart. 

Lord Krishna Makes us Reach the Heights of Religious Rapture

O Nath! My reach is only upto You. You are the one who knows and understands my mind. Hence I pray to You with extreme humility. Do not  spurn my request, do fulfill my demand. Do not disappoint me. There has been enough of my aimlessly wandering about from one place to another.  O repository of mercy! It's enough! Fill my jholi now. O affectionate one! Just look at me once with Your merciful glance. And by Your sweet look fill my shrivelled life with rasa or religious rapture-make my heart suffering due to the anguish of separation reach the heights of elation and ecstasy

 A Sakhi Moistened by The Sidelong Glance of Lord Krishna

Let us also combine our feeble weak voice along with Shripad Bilavmangal ji Maharaj's powerful voice and say in unison,” O compassionate One! O Lord! O Omnipotent One! Merely look at us once with your fickle glance. Irrigate us intensively even if it is by a fragment of the generosity of your glance.”

 Shri Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabu

apna ayogya dekhi mane paaun shobh |
tathapi tomar gune upjaay lobh  ||
If the sweetness of your dalliance which nurtures the three bhuvanas ,does not give stability then apart from the fearsome fire of sensual enjoyments what else will remain in this mundane world?

Lord Krishna, the Ocean of Mercy

yachaun ek hi kann kko daan”
O Ocean of mercy! O Respository of compassion! O Lord! Once, just once be delighted and sprinkle a drop from the gushing generosity of Your merciful glance. Nath! One such drop will be become a lake of rasa or religious rapture for me. A particle of Your grace will become the wealth of my life till eternity.And I will be contented.

Jholi: the loose portion of a garment held out to receive alms
