Chandana Charchitha – Ashtapathi

The immortal love of Radha and Krishna was captured in a lyrical masterpiece by a mystic poet from eastern India – Jayadeva. The work known as Geet Govind is a parable for the human soul’s wanderings before returning eventually to its true love (God) and is presented in the form of verses called Ashtapathis or 8 steps/lines. Here is a beautiful ashtapathi from the Geet Govind that describes the playful banter between Krishna and the gopis of Brindavan. The recording is from my concert for All India Radio Bangalore in June 2017.
