"Now I have gained the Lord of My life, in the absence of whom I was being burned by Cupid and was withering away"

Sri Caitanya-caritamrta

CC Madhya-lila

“‘Now I have gained the Lord of My life, in the absence of whom I was being burned by Cupid and was withering away.’”

“‘Now I have gained the Lord of My life, in the absence of whom I was being burned by Cupid and was withering away.’”

This song refers to Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī’s meeting with Kṛṣṇa at the holy place of Kurukṣetra, where Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa and His brother and sister came to visit when there was a solar eclipse. It is a song of separation from Kṛṣṇa. When Rādhārāṇī met Kṛṣṇa at Kurukṣetra, She remembered His intimate association in Vṛndāvana, and She thought, “Now I have gained the Lord of My life. In His absence I was being burned by the arrow of Cupid, and thus I was withering away. Now I have My life again.”
