To this neglected land of Braja,[nb 2]

- Kanpur, where this song was given, lies on the southern outskirts of Braja. At the time when this song was given (1984), the entire geo-cultural area of Braja was in disrepair due to long neglect. That is still the case today.
- Murá (মুরা) was a general of King Narakasura, who attacked Dvaraka, the capital of Krśńa's kingdom. According to legend, on the day before Diipavali (the new-moon day of the month of Karttik, roughly mid-October to mid-November), Krśńa's wife, Satyabhámá, defeated and killed Narakasura. However, Krśńa is credited with the earlier slaying of Narakasura's general, Murá. Hence, Krśńa is sometimes referred to as Murári (মুরারি). According to mythology, both Narakasura and Murá were demons. So, murári may be loosely translated as "slayer of demons".
- The river Jamuna is closely associated with the story of Krsna in his early life as Vraja Gopal. On the stormy night of Krsna's birth, the Jamuna is said to have parted and made way for Krsna's father, Vasudeva, carrying Krsna to safety. Moreover, Krsna and his childhood friends used to play on the banks of the Jamuna.
