Gopika Geetham

Gopikaa Geetham is the celestial song sung by Vruja Gopis in praise of Lord Krishna. This projects the depth of Viraha Thaapam suffered by Gopis when Krishna diappears and their pure Prema Bhakthi and the highest spiritual heights attained by them. This song also brings out the Sringaara Rasam of Gopis with Krishna.

RAASAKREEDA in the Tenth Skantham(middle) of Bhaagavatham. This is to be sung with devotion, in rapt attention and reverence without any Thaala or sounds.
Gopis who enthralled in the presence of Krishna with ecstasy during the Raasa Leela, thoughtless about their worldly duties, relations and existence and always longed for Krishna's company, had developed an EGO, i.e. each Gopi claiming that Krishna is hers and hers alone and He likes/loves her only. He disappears temporarily from there midst and made Himself not reachable by them. At this time, Gopis felt loneliness and could not concentrate on their work and grieved over the absence of Krishna.
When Krishna suddenly disappeared from the company of the gopis, they started searching for him in every place. Unable to find him, they started behaving in strange manner. They asked the trees, plants and animals in the forest whether they have seen Krishna? Unable to get any answer from them, they asked each other about the whereabouts of Krishna. After much searching, they all sat down fatigued and started imitating the different pastimes they had with Krishna. Some gopis found the footprints of Krishna and begin to follow them Soon they saw another set of footprints beside the imprints of lotus-feet of Lord Krishna.
That very moment Krishna immediately disappeared under her and Radha  was left hanging on the branch. All the gopis came where Radha was hanging from the branch of the tree and heard everything from her. They felt sympathetic about her and together, they proceeded in search of Krishna. When they were unsuccessful in their endeavor, they set down on the bank of River Yamuna and started chanting the glories of Krishna. They repeatedly requested Krishna to appear again. On hearing their plea, Krishna reappeared before the gopis and tried to pacify them.

 THE RASA DANCE:

Thus hearing Krishna speaking to pacify them, the gopis became very happy. After this Krishna began the Rasa dance. Krishna danced amidst the gopis.  Krishna multiplied himself into many Krishnas and each form stood beside every gopi, so that each gopi thought that Krishna was dancing with her alone. There were three kinds of rasa going on simultaneously. One: Kanha and one gopi, personal meeting. One: Kanha and two gopis, social meeting. One:  Gopis encircling Radha Rani and Krishna while all their senses centred around Krishna, the final and lasting meeting. The dance was a perfect tuning of rhythm, body movements and music. The movements of their extremities, earrings, hair with flowers and their smiling at each other produced a wonderful dance. To see this wonderful dance, many demi-gods accompanied by their wives had arrived in the sky. The Gandharvas and Kinnaras began to sing and showered flowers on the dancers. 

(The song of the Gopis)
From
Bhagawatha Purana
Gopya Ouchu:
Jayathi thedhikam ,Krishana janmana vruja,
Srayatha indira,Krishana saswadathrahi,
Dhayitha, drusyatham Krishana dikshuthavaka,
Thwayi druthasavasthwam Krishana vichinwathe. 1

SaradudasayeKrishana; sadu jatha sath,
Sarasi jodharaKrishana; srimusha drusa,
Suratha nadha, Krishana;they shulka dasika,
Varada , nignadhoKrishana; neha kim vadha. 2

Visha jalapyaya Krishana;dyavla raakshasa,
Dwarsha maruthadwaidhyuthanalath,
Vrusha mayathmaja Krishana;dwisatha bhaya,
Drushabha, they vayam Krishana rak****ha muhu. 3

Na khalu gopikaa nandano bhavan,
Akhila dehinam antharathma druk,
Vikhana sarthitho viswa gupthaye,
Sakha udeyivan sathwatham kule. 4

Virachitha bhayam vrushni dhurya, they,
Charana peeyushaam samsyather bhayath,
Kara saroruham, kantha, kamadham,

Sirasi nehi na sree kara graham. 5
Vruja janarthihan, veera yo****haam,
Nijjanasmayadwamsasmitha,
Bhaja sakhe bhavath kim kareesmano,

Jalaruhananam charu darshaya. 6
Pranatha dehinam, papa karshanam,
Truna charanugam, sree nikethanam,
Phani phanarpitham, they padambujam,

Krunu kucheshu na, kreedi hruchayam.7
Madhuraya gira, valgu vakhyaya,
Budha manognaya, pushkare kshana,
Vidhi kareerima, veera, muhyathi,

Radara seedhuna pyayaswa na. 8
Thava kadamrutham, thaptha jeevanam,
Kavebhheereeditham kalmashapaham,
Sravanamangalam sree madhathatha,

Bhuvi grunwanthi, they booritha jana. 9
Prahasitham priya, Prema veekshanam,
Viharanam cha they dhyana mangalam,
Rahasi samvidho, ya hrudhi sparsa,

Kuhaka, no mana kshobhayanthi he. 10
Chalasi yadi vruja charayan pasoon,
Nalina sundaram, Nadha they padam,
Shila shrunangurai, seedhtheethi, na,

Kalilatham mana kantha gachathi. 11
Deenapareekshaye neela kuntalai,
Vanaruhananam bhibradavrutham,
Ghanarajaswalam darsayan muhur,
Manasi na smaram veera yachasi. 12

Pranadha kamadham padmajarchidham,
Dharani mandanam dhyeyamapadhi,
Charana pankajam santhamam cha they,
Ramana nasthaneshwa arpayadhihan. 13

Suratha vardhanam, soka nasanam,
Sthitha venuna, sushtu chumbitham,
Ithra raga vimaaranam nrunam,
Vithara veera nasthe adharamrutham. 14

Atathi yath bhavan agni kananam,
Thrutiryu gayathe thwamapasyatham,
Kutila kunthalam, Sri mukham cha they,
Jada udeekshatham, pashma krudrusyam. 15

Pathi suthaanwaya brathru bandhawa,
Nathi vilangyathenthyaachyuthaga,
Gathi vidasthaveth geetha mohitha,
Kim thava, yo****ha ka sthyajen nisi. 16

Rahasi samvidam hruchayodhayam,
Prahasi thananam prema veekshanam,
Bruha dura sreeyo, veekshya dhama they,
Muhurathi spruha, muhya they mana. 17

Vruja janoukasam vyakthi ranga they,
Vraji nahanthryalam viswa mangalam,
Thyaja manakcha nasthwath spruharthmanam,
Swajana hrudrujam, ya nishudhanam. 18

Yathe sujatha charanamburuham sthaneshu,
Bheetha sanai priya dadimahi karkaseshu,
Thenatavi matasi thadwaitha thena kimswith.
Koorpathibhir bramathi dheerbhavadhayusham na. 19

Sri Shuka Uvacha:
Ithi gopya pragayanthya,
Pralapanthyas cha chithradha,
Rurudhu suswaram rajan,
Krishna darshana lalasa. 20

Thasamavira bhochowri,
Smayamana mukhambuja,
Peethambaradhara sragwi,
Sakshanmanmadhamanmadha. 21
