1) Whose intoxicating flute-tunes disrupt the customary conduct (good disposition) of the heart of Śrī Rādhikā; 2) Whose lake-like mind is attracted towards the vivid (wide) extent of fragrance of Rādhā. 3) By Whose grace (or beauty) the fish-like mind of beautiful young Rādhā is pierced;1 4) by Whose togetherness Rādhā -- Rādhā, Who is blind in love with Kṛṣṇa -- is colored red (due to shyness).
5) Who has been captivated by the heavy lustre (beauty) of Rādhā -- Rādhā, Who is charming (lovely), and Who is always well-disposed; 6) Who is trapped in the excessive abundance of sweetness from the nectar of indirect (but lovely) utterances of Rādhā. 7) Who is immersed in the ocean-like color of Rādhikā formed by the rays emanating from moon-like face; 8) Who is the emerald (harinmaṇi) of the beautiful necklace around the neck of daughter of Vṛṣabhānu (or Rādhikā).2
9) Who only takes (consumes) the nectar from the lotus-like face of blossoming Kamalinī-like Rādhā; 10) Whose chest is shaking at the kastūrī-leaves at the bosom of Rādhikā. Thus ends (narration of) the enticing sport of the son of Nanda (the protector of Gokula). He who reads these ten names (of Kṛṣṇa), he moves towards the state of dearness to Kṛṣṇa.
