Gōpikā viraha gīta
ēhī murārē kun̄javiharē ēhī praṇata jana bandhō
hē mādhava madhumathana varēṇya kēśava karuṇā sindhō
rāsa nikun̄jē gun̄jita niyatama bhramara śatama kila kānta
ēhi nibhrita patha pantha
tvamahi anvēṣaṇa darśana dānama hē madhusūdana śānta
sun'yama kusūmāsana miha kun̄jē sun'yama kēlī kadama
dīnaḥ kēki kadama
mr̥du kala nā dama kila savi ṣadama rōdita yamunā svambha
navanīrajadhara śyāmala sundara candrā kusuma ruci vēśa
gōpī gaṇa hradayēśa
gōvardhana dhara vr̥ndāvana cara vanśī dhara paramēśa
rādhā ran̄jana kānsa niśudana praṇati sātavaka caraṇē nikhila nirāśrayē śaraṇa
ēhī janārdana pītāmbara dhara kun̄jē manthara pāvanē
"Gopika Viraha Gitam" is a popular devotional song that describes the separation of the Gopis (cowherd women) from Lord Krishna. It portrays the intense love and longing of the Gopis for Krishna when he leaves them to return to his home in Vrindavan. The Gopis are heartbroken and sing songs of love and separation.
This song is often part of the Bhakti tradition in Hinduism and is sung during various Krishna-centric festivals and devotional gatherings. It captures the deep emotional and spiritual connection between the Gopis and Lord Krishna.
