I am eager to see you O Krishna, you who live in Vrindavan, and wear a saffron tilak on your brow and a string of pearls around your neck.

Surdas's verses are a valuable store of Braj sahitya, the literature of Vrindavan. He was awarded by Vallabhacharya the title of Asht-chhaap Sakha, one of the eight poet-musicians at the Haweli of Srinathji at Govardhan. The deity was later shifted to Nathdwara, but the tradition of Haweli sangit and Raag sewa started by the eight poet-musicians (Asht-chhaap), Surdas among them, still continues...

In this video, MS Subbulakshmi sings Surdas's bhajan: Akhiya Hari darsan ki pyaasi...

Lyrics: Akhiya Hari darsan ki pyaasi

Akhiya Hari darsan ki pyaasi

Dekhyo chaahat Kamal-nayan ko,
Nis din rahat udaasi

Akhiya Hari darsan ki pyaasi

Kesar tilak, motin ki maala,
Brindaban ke vaasi.

Akhiya Hari darsan ki pyaasi

Kaahu ke man ki kou na jaanat,
logan ke man haasi.
Surdas prabhu tumhare daras bin,
Leho karvat kaasi.

Akhiya Hari darsan ki pyaasi

Meaning: Hari darsan ki pyasi akhiya

Surdas ji says: Hari, I am restless to see you. My eyes are thirsty to see you, O Krishna whose eyes are shaped like the lotus petals. I am uneasy day and night, waiting to see you. I am eager to see you O Krishna, you who live in Vrindavan, and wear a saffron tilak on your brow and a string of pearls around your neck. No one can know another's person's mind. While I am restless to see you others are in a jocund mood, and do not know my pain.
