Here Comes My Very Life, Krishna
Here comes my very life, Krishna. Having adopted a sportive attitude, He slowly approaches on tender lotus feet. His anklets make a soft tinkling sound as He joyously recollects charming flute songs. In other words, my very life Krishna is taking steps with His tender lotus feet as He remembers romantic dalliances of the past.
The Rasa-laden Commentary:
Krishna, the Wealth of My Life, ApproachesShri Billavmangalji is saying that Krishna, the wealth of my life, is approaching on His tender blue-hued feet. With toes resembling lotus petals, His soft lotus feet make a soft sound of tinkling anklets adorning His feet. Recollecting flute songs sung during some romantic dalliance of the past, He comes towards me. He is my very life, my heart's Beloved.
The Tender Lotus Feet of Krishna
There is lasya or feminine grace, an intoxicating sluggishness in His gait as if a youth overpowered by some saffron-coloured intoxication, recollecting some charming romantic dalliance is approaching. The resulting thoughts churning around in His mind have made His movement sluggish.
