TRANSLATION

1) I offer my respectful obeisances to Lord Narayana, who has no beginning, and who is the creator, maintainer, and destroyer of the material worlds.

 

2) With folded hands I offer my prayers unto Krsna, the son of Nanda Maharaja, who is my life and soul.

 

3) I offer my respectful obeisances to Brahma and Siva who help in the creation of the material world, and to Ganesa, who removes obstacles.

 

4) I bow down to the feet of all the demigods. Now I will write something of Lord Krsna's pastimes.

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

In Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, (Madhya 15.99-100), Lord Caitanya praises this verse and this book. He says: "Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu then said: Gunaraja Khan of Kulina-grama compiled a book named Sri Krsna-vijaya in which there is a sentence revealing the author's ecstatic love of Krsna. "Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu then said: `Krsna, the son of Maharaja Nanda, is my life and soul.' By this statement I am sold into the hands of the descendents of Gunaraja Khan.' "
