TRANSLATION

1) Who will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill, the best of mountains, the friend of Gokula, the charming bumblebee that for seven days stood on the graceful whorl of the lotus flower of Lord Krsna's hand and protected Vraja from the mouth of the Indra-crocodile raining a great monsoon?

 

2) What pious person will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill, whose peak is the place of pastimes for Lord Krsna, the master of the surabhi cows, and near which is blissful Govinda-kunda, where a surabhi cow, followed by humbled Indra bearing the waters of the celestial Ganges, bathed Lord Krsna and secretly crowned Him king of the surabhi cows?

 

3) What pious person will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill, which is glorified by the great sages, and which is encircled by the lakes Siri-kunda, Brahma-kunda, Hara-kunda, Apsarah-kunda, Priyaka-kunda, and Sri-dana-kunda, which are splendid with the happiness of pure love and more dear to Lord Hari than the celestial Ganges and a host of other sacred places?

 

4) Who will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill, which is charming with cows, deer, birds, and trees, and which is the place where the lakes Jyotsnamoksana-kunda, Malya-kunda, Hara-kunda, Sumanah-kunda, Gauri-kunda, Balaridhvaja-kunda, Gandharva-kunda, many other lakes, many swiftly-moving mountain streams, many lion-thrones for amorous pastimes, many places for Lord Hari's other pastimes, and the cowherd boy Lord Hari Himself, are all splendidly manifest?

 

5) Who will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill? He who with always devotedly caries on his bowed head the lake known as Syama-kunda, which is millions of times greater than the Ganges, and which was born from the foot of Lord Krsna, becomes more dear to the Lord than even the demigod Siva. He who in the same way carries the jewel known as Radha'-kunda attains the full mercy of Lord Krsna. He becomes the most dear and glorious of devotees.

 

6) Who will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill, where the divine couple enjoy Their rescue-fee pastimes, and where the Manasa-ganga flows? In the Manasa-ganga the pilot Madhava took sweetly beautiful Radha' on His boat, and when She, frightened by a great storm, prayed that He calm it, He claimed from Her as a rescue-fee the fulfillment of His amorous desires.

 

7) Ah, what pious person will not take shelter of lofty Govardhana Hill, the beautiful and transcendental place of the rasa dance, where Sri Radha, accompanied by Her beautiful friends worshiped by hundreds of goddesses of fortune, and the splendid, nectar arm of Lord Krsna playfully resting on Her neck, dances in the springtime rasa-lila?

 

8) Who will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill where, blossoming with happiness at the outrageous joking words of Their friends, perpetually wounded by the swift arrows shot from the corners of Their cruel, smiling eyes, and laughing at the crooked words of the ever-new dana-keli quarrel, the youthful divine couple displayed so many transcendental pastimes?

 

9) Who will not take shelter of graceful and auspicious Govardhana Hill, where, accompanied by Sridama and His other friends, playing with Sankarsana, and carefully herding the cows, Lord Krsna happily sings ri ri, and where Lord Krsna enjoys amorous pastimes with Radha' in the rasa dance arena and deep in the hidden caves?

 

10) Who will not take shelter of Govardhana Hill, the crowned king of all mountains? For the people of Vraja's sake Lord Mukunda neglected the sun-god's daughter Yamuna, a host of other lofty hills, the wish-fulfilling forest of Vrndavana, and the town of Nandisvara, and respectfully worshiped Govardhana Hill.

 

11) By the mercy of Govardhana Hill these ten beautiful verses about Govardhana Hill, which grant residence at Govardhana Hill, have come from the mouth of a blind old man. The pleasure of Govardhana Hill, which is my life and soul, and which is a beautiful jewel-mine of transcendental virtues, is the ripe fruit I seek from my labor in writing these verses.
