ärati bhānudulaāri ki, ki shri barasāne vāri ki.

— I perform the ärati of Bhānudulāri, the Darling daughter of King Vrishbhanu, who has appeared in Barsänä.
virājai simhāsana shyāmā, divya shri vrindāvana dhāmā.
dhurāvai chamvara sughara bāmā.

— She is resplendent on a throne in the divine abode of Vrindavana.
Beautiful, accomplished Sakhīs are fanning Her with flywhisks.
palotaim paga pürana kāmā,
lali paga anka, chāpi nihshanka.

— Shyamsundara, who is described as completely self-satisfied, is softly massaging Her feet, placing them gently in His lap.
shyāma janu ranka,
pāi nidhi pārasa pyārī ki.

— He is doing this unhesitatingly with no fear of anyone’s opinion, lost in the ecstasy of a pauper who has just acquired a touchstone.
gaura sira kanaka mukut rājai,
chandrikā chāru suchhavi chhājai.

— Her fair face is perfectly complimented with a gold crown, whose splendour is further enhanced by a beautiful chandrikā.
kutila kuntala ali bhala bhrājai,
lakhata jehi shikhi kalāpa lājai.

— The peacock feathers on Shri Krishna’s head are shamed in comparison with the beautiful curly, black tresses of Kishori Ji.
māmga sindūra, motiyana pūra.

— The parting in Her hair is decorated with sindura and strings of pearls.
sajīvana mūra,
brahma govardhandhārī ki.

— Kishori Ji is the veritable sanjivani of the Supreme Lord, Shri Krishna, the lifter of the Govardhana Mountain.
shravana bicha karanaphūla jhalakai,
nāsikā bicha beshara halakai.

— The karnaphulas that adorn Her ears are radiant. The besara hanging from Her nose sways gently.
nayana bicha prema-sudhā chhalakai,
bandhu bala ke lakhi lakhi lalakai.

— The nectar of divine love flows gently from Her eyes arousing ardent desire in Shyāmasundara.
chapalanatha chamaka,
dasana-duti-damaka,
sumukhi-mukha-ramaka,
madhura muskani sukumārī ki.

— Her swaying nose-ring shimmers, the whiteness of Her teeth glistens and when She smiles, its sweet charm lights up Her indescribably beautiful face.
motiyana lara ura mani mālā,
chibuka jhalakata ika tila kālā.

— Her bosom is decorated with strands of pearls and jewelled necklaces. A charming beauty spot adorns Her chin.
shambhu shuka dai sanga karatālā,
lali guna gāvati brajabala.

— Great paramahamsas like Lord Shankara and Shukadeva clap their hands joyfully as the maidens of Braja sing Her glories.
kabahun mukha murari,
kabahun driga durani.

— Sometimes she turns Her face away from Shyamasundara, sometimes out of shyness She turns away Her eyes from Him.
kabahu driga jurani,
kabahun sudhi bhurani bihāri ki.

— And sometimes She casts a flirtatious glance in His direction, as a result of which, Shyamasundara almost loses consciousness with joy.
kinärina jarina nila sāri,
kañchuki kumakuma ramga vārī.

— Kishori Ji wears a blue sari bordered with gold brocade. Her blouse is the color of kumakuma.
churi kara ka jana manahāri,
chhina kati kinkini chhavi nyārī.

— The bangles and bracelets adorning Her hands steal hearts with their beauty. The kinkini around and just below Her slim waist has a unique charm.
pāyalani pagani, mihāvari lagani,
bichhuvani nagani,
kripālu sukīrti kumāri ki.

— Her feet are adorned with anklets and the soles of Her lotus feet are decorated with mihävara. Her toes are ornamented with jewel-studded toe-rings.
I perform the ārati of Kirti Kumari, the beautiful Daughter of Queen Kirti, whose glory is ever resplendent.
