The Mukunda Mala Stotra (the collection verses as flowers offered to Mukunda) is a classic text coming from the Sri Sampradaya. In the Sri Sampradaya, there are twelve alavaras (azhavaras) who were Tamil devotional poets who dedicated their lives in singing and chanting the glories of the Lord. Kulasekhara was one of the twelve alavaras. This text was written in simple Sanskrit expressing his devotion to Lord Krsna. It was debated as far as how many verses was written. Some versions say he wrote forty, while others opt for fifty-three or sixty. This site features all sixty verses. Srila Prabhupada wanted to translate and write purports for the Mukunda Mala Stotra, but he completed only the first six, in lieu of focusing on the Srimad Bhagavatam. He was particularly fond of the thirty-third verse that devotees would chant that verse solely.
