raya kahe,--"kaha dekhi premotpatti-karana?
purva-raga, vikara, cesta, kama-likhana?"
raya kahe—Srila Ramananda Raya further inquires; kaha—please recite; dekhi—so that I may know; prema. utpatti-karana—the causes of awakening the loving propensity; purva-raga—previous attachment; vikara—transformation; cesta—endeavor; kama-likhana—writing of letters disclosing the gopis' attachment for Krsna.
Then Ramananda Raya inquired from Rupa Gosvami about the causes of the loving affairs between Krsna and the gopis, such as previous attachment, transformations of love, endeavors for love, and exchanges of letters disclosing the gopis' awakening love for Krsna.
