Radha’s Bhuta Suddhi Prayer – Rupa Goswami’s Padyavali
After Krishna had left for Mathura, Radha told Lalita, “Dear friend, if Krishna never returns to Vrindavan, then I will never attain him and he will also not get me. Bereft of his service, what then is the use in maintaining this troublesome body any longer?” She then prayed:
pancatvam tanur etu bhuta-nivahah svamse visantu sphutam dhataram pranipatya hanta sirasa tatrapi yace varam tad-vapisu payas tadiya-mukure jyotis tadiyangana-vyomni vyoma tadiya-vartmani dhara tat-tala-vrnte ‘nilah
I bow my head before the creator and beg from him the benediction that when this body dies and it’s elements mix with the prime elements of gross matter, at that time may the water of my body mix with the water where Krishna performs his water sports. May the fire of my body enter Krishna’s mirror. May the ether of my body enter the sky around his courtyard. May the earth in my body merge in the paths where he walks, and may the air in my body be used to fan him.
