Hamaro dhan, radhey ju ko naam



hamaro dhana, radhey ju ko naam
Radha Rani’s name is our only wealth.

radhey naama prataapa shyama bhaye,
rasikana me saranaama

It is the glory of Shree Radha’s name that has made the Supreme God Shree Krishna famous as the crown jewel of rasiks.

radhey naama siddha kari murali, 
taanana mohyo baama
Shree Krishna imbued the charm of the name ‘Radhey’ in his flute and thus captivated the hearts of all the gopis of Braj by its melodious tune.

radhey naama kripa te dvaapar,
 raas rachyo brajadhama
It is by the grace of Radha Rani’s name that Shree Krishna performed the divine ‘Maharaas’ pastime in Braj, in the age of Dwapar.

radhey naama sunata hi bhaajat,
 hari adhira tehi thaama
As soon as Shree Krishna hears the name “Radhey”, 
he impatiently runs to that place at once.

radhey naama rakaar bina raha,
shyamahu aadhe shyam
Without the ‘Ra’ of ‘Radhey’, ‘Radhey-Shyam’ becomes ‘Adhey-Shyam’ (half of Shyam).  That is, Shyam is left incomplete without Radhey.

karu ‘kripalu’ radhey radhey ki,
 ratana aathon yaama
Says Shree ‘Kripalu’, “O mind! Considering the greatness of the name ‘Radhey’, chant it at every moment of every day.”
