TRANSLATION

1) His form is full of spiritual bliss. He is the sweet essence of the Vedas. He is sweet like nectar. He is supremely independent. He is the abode where everything rests. He carries the devotees to the farther shore of the ocean of birth and death. He is supremely virtuous. He is Goddess Laksmi's necklace. He enjoys pastimes in Vraja's forests. Siva praises His glories. O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.

 

2) He resides on the great ocean. He is the father of all moving and unmoving beings. He protects the demigods in the higher worlds. He is a flood of nectar. He rides on Garuda. He is pleased by devotion. He knows every heart. He knows everything. He is the sages' shelter. To Dhruva He gave an eternal abode. O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.

 

3) Fixing their intelligence on Him, the sages meditate on Him. Filling the cups of their ears, the ascetics drink the nectar of His glories. He is known by the great statements of the Vedas.

O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.

 

4) By His command Goddess Maha-maya weaves her net. He wears a splendid forest-flower-garland. He removes all sins. His forehead is graceful. He is a cowherd boy. He killed Sisupala. His face is like the moon. He is beyond time's touch. He is time itself. His motions are like a graceful swan. He is Mura's enemy. O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.

 

5) He is glorious like a full moon shining in the sky. His glories are sung by the Vedas. He is equal to all. He is pleased with the demigods. He is not pleased by the demons. He resides in Dvaraka-puri. He is beyond the pathway of material words. He relishes fresh butter. He is everyone's guide. O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.

 

6) He is the supreme controller. He is Goddess Laksmi's master. He is the master of Siva and Brahma. He brings auspiciousness. He is the brahmanas' master. He is the demigods' master. His hair is fine and curly. He stops strife. He is Garuda's master. He is the master of the universes. He is the master of all the worlds. He maintains the universes. O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.

 

7) He is Goddess Laksmi's beloved. He is handsome. He ends all fear of this world of birth and death. He is the only friend in this world. He puts an end to all sinful desires. He is supremely peaceful. He resides in every heart. He protects the worlds. He ends all debate. He is self-controlled. He brings the demons to their end. His actions are glorious. O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.

 

8) He is supreme in all the worlds. He is the greatest. He is Indra's younger brother, Upendra. He is the master of all yajnas. He is the most powerful. He is the best. He is the most exalted in the three worlds. He is the granter opf benedictions. He is independent. He is religious. He is the best of all gurus. He is the supreme master. O people, please always worship Lord Govinda, the root of all bliss.
