  2. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 1 Continuously absorbed in Kṛṣṇa prema, you have forgotten your sādhaka-deha. You are a desire creeper that increases the tat-tat-bhāva mood of the mañjarīs; by your mercy you may reveal our constitutional spiritual form and ecstatic loving mood. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? aharniśam bhāvanāmṛtāyām bhāvitā bhūtvā vismarayasi tvam laukika guṇagāthā tattadbhāva bardhanārthaṁ tvam kalpavallạri kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  3. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 2 Your attire is pink in color and your bodily complexion is golden like the beautiful golden plumeria. You are so attractive that even Kṛṣṇa becomes bewildered by seeing you. You are Rādhā’s eternal loving companion and your intimate service is to assist Her for abhisāra (when Rādhikā is proceeding to meet with Kṛṣṇa at night, at the appointed secret rendezvous place). You are a desire creeper for Rādhikā’s abhisāra. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? pāṭ alavastra campakadyuti manoharam tvam śrīrādhikāyāḥ abhisāra tava nityakāma abhisāra kāmārthaṁ tvam kalpavallari kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  4. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 3 You will expertly decorate Rādhikā, disguising Her with different colourful matching clothes according to the visibility of the moon during the night, sometimes, during white fortnight, decorating Her with white ornaments and smearing camphor on Her body, and on black fortnight, dressing Her in deep dark color clothing. You conceal Rādhikā by cheating the people in general for Rādhikā must not be seen by them and the secret rendezvous place must be kept hidden.You are a desire creeper for Rādhikā’s abhisāra. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? kṛṣṇā kṛṣṇa niśā yogya śṛṅgāra kṛtvā abhisārārthaṁ kṛtvā kḷpta karpūrabhūṣā śrīrādhā–abhisārārthaṁ tvam kalpavallạri kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  5. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 4 Seeing tree stumps on the way to abhisāra during the night, Rādhikā’s face becomes completely pale. She thinks that the very persons She is concealing Herself from, are standing there. You will say, “Oh Rādhe! Do not worry. They are only tree stumps, not people.” You are a desire creeper for Rādhikā’s abhisāra. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? niśā yām pathi vṛkṣaṁ dṛṣṭvā muṇḍita muṇḍam vivarṇa bhaviṣyati śrīrādhāyāḥ tuṇḍam rādhābhisārārthaṁ tvam kalpavallạri kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  6. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 5 Being very pleased with you, Rādhikā will keep Her arm on your shoulder during her abhisāra towards Kṛṣṇa. You will wrap a cloth around Her ankle bells so that no noise should be heard. In serving to conceal Rādhikā from Her superiors, you very cleverly arrange for whatever She requires at any moment. You are a desire creeper for cheating and tricking Her superiors. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? abhisāra kāle tava skandhe muditānyastahastā guravaḥ pratāranārthaṁ śiñjit (tvayā) vastravṛtā guravaḥ pratāranārthaṁ tvam kalpavallạri kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  7. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 6 To best train and prepare Rādhikā for abhisāra at night, you place thorns here and there and pour water on the ground to make it muddy. Then you assist Rādhikā in practicing how to perfectly walk in the forest for abhisāra on a slippery, dark and rainy night. To teach Her abhisāra, you are a desire creeper. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? abhisāra śikṣā yārthaṁ kaṇṭaka kardamākta prāṅgaṇe śrīrādhāṁ cālayaṭi (ati) mṛdu saṁgopane abhisāra śikṣā yārthaṁ tvam kalpavallạri kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  8. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 7 To nourish Rādhikā’s enchanting and inconceivable mood of māna or sulkiness, you always consult with Kṛṣṇa’s priya-narmāsakhās like Subala and Ujjwal. You are a desire-creeper for increasing the intensity of Rādhā’s sulky mood. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? atyukaṭa māna prasādhanārthaṁ śrīrādhāyāḥ apekṣayati yukti sadā suvalojjvalayoḥ rādhā–mānotkarṣārthaṁ tvam kalpavallạri kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  9. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 8 Being victorious in a serious debate against Kṛṣṇa, the son of the king of Vraja, you, among Lalitā’s associates, received the mercy of Rāseśvarī. You are a desire creeper because of receiving mercy from Rāseśvarī. When, oh when, will that day come when you will bestow your mercy upon me? jitvā vrajarāja sūnum vākyudghe śrīrāseśvaryyaḥ kṛpā labhasi gaṇamadhye rāseśvaryyaḥ kṛpārthaṁ tvam kalpavallạri kṛpā kadā kariṣyasi mām śrīramaṇa mañjari

  10. Sri Ramana Manjari Ashtakam 9 Upon hearing this new, astonishing, unprecedented and ever-fresh prayer about you, kindly give me some place within the associates of Lalitadevi and make me your eternal bosom friend. itīmamadbhuta navīna stotraṁ niśamya śrīramaṇa mañjari lalitāyāḥ gaṇe sthānammdatvā kariṣyasi nitya sahacari
