Song Name: Saludo Al Señor De Eterna Forma De Gozo

Official Name: Damodarastakam

Author: Atulananda Acarya

Book Name: None

Language: Spanish




Saludo al Señor de eterna forma de gozo

De aros brillantes que nace en Gokula

Huye de Yasoda como temeroso

Pero ella es más veloz y lo captura



Un muy fuerte llanto derraman Sus ojos

A los que refriegan Sus manos de loto

Su cuello de tres líneas tiembla agitado

Y el collar de quien por bhakti es atado



Estos pasatiempos son lagos de gozo

En los que sumerge a Sus devotos

Que el bhakti puro lo conquista demuestra

Con amor le ofrezco cientos de reverencias



¡Oh Señor de gracia! de Tí no pido

Ni liberación ni Vaikuntha mismo

Esta forma tuya de niño Gopala

Muestra siempre en mí, fuera de eso nada



Tu rostro de loto con risos negros

Los besos de Yasoda lo tiñeron

Con sus labios rojos cual fruta bimba

Sólo eso muestra nada más me admira



Reverencias Damodara, Ananta, Visnu

Ten piedad estoy en aflicción sumido

Mira con Tu gracia a este pobre caído

Muéstrate a este tonto, sé compasivo



Como salvaste a los hijos de Kuvera

Dándoles cabida a Tu devoción sincera

Así el prema-bhakti a mí también regala

No me des mukti ¡Oh Damodara!



A esa refulgente amarra reverencio

Y a Tu abdomen que guarda al universo

Reverencia a Radha por Ti tan querida

Y a Tu ilimitado y divino lila



1) To the Supreme Lord, whose form is the embodiment of eternal existence, knowledge, and bliss, whose shark-shaped earrings are swinging to and fro, who is beautifully shining in the divine realm of Gokula, who I (due to the offense of breaking the pot of yogurt that His mother was churning into butter and then stealing the butter that was kept hanging from a swing) is quickly running from the wooden grinding mortar in fear of mother Yasoda, but who has been caught from behind by her who ran after Him with greater speed--to that Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, I offer my humble obeisances.


2) (Seeing the whipping stick in His mother's hand) He is crying and rubbing His eyes again and again with His two lotus hands. His eyes are filled with fear, and the necklace of pearls around His neck, which is marked with three lines like a conch shell, is shaking because of His quick breathing due to crying. To this Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, whose belly is bound not with ropes but with His mother's pure love, I offer my humble obeisances.


3) By such childhood pastimes as this He is drowning the inhabitants of Gokula in pools of ecstasy, and is revealing to those devotees who are absorbed in knowledge of His supreme majesty and opulence that He is only conquered by devotees whose pure love is imbues with intimacy and is free from all conceptions of awe and reverence. With great love I again offer my obeisances to Lord Damodara hundreds and hundreds of times.


4) O Lord, although You are able to give all kinds of benedictions, I do not pray to You for the boon of impersonal liberation, nor the highest liberation of eternal life in Vaikuntha, nor any other boon (which may be obtained by executing the nine processes of bhakti). O Lord, I simply wish that this form of Yours as Bala Gopala in Vrndavana may ever be manifest in my heart, for what is the use to me of any other boon besides this?


5) O Lord, Your lotus face, which is encircled by locks of soft black hair tinged with red, is kissed again and again by mother Yasoda, and Your lips are reddish like the bimba fruit. May this beautiful vision of Your lotus face be ever manifest in my heart. Thousands and thousands of other benedictions are of no use to me.


6) O Supreme Godhead, I offer my obeisances unto You. O Damodara! O Ananta! O Vishnu! O master! O my Lord, be pleased upon me. By showering Your glance of mercy upon me, deliver this poor ignorant fool who is immersed in an ocean of worldly sorrows, and become visible to my eyes.


7) O Lord Damodara, just as the two sons of Kuvera--Manigriva and Nalakuvara--were delivered from the curse of Narada and made into great devotees by You in Your form as a baby tied with rope to a wooden grinding mortar, in the same way, please give to me Your own prema-bhakti. I only long for this and have no desire for any kind of liberation.


8) O Lord Damodara, I first of all offer my obeisances to the brilliantly effulgent rope which binds Your belly. I then offer my obeisances to Your belly, which is the abode of the entire universe. I humbly bow down to Your most beloved Srimati Radharani, and I offer all obeisances to You, the Supreme Lord, who displays unlimited pastimes.



This is the Spanish translation of the song “Namamisvaram Saccidananda Rupam.”
