1) Following the sequence found in Srimad Bhagavatam, I shall now describe the Supreme Lord Krsna. I shall do this in order to attain the perfection of transcendental bliss, by offering 108 obeisances to Krsna.


2) O Krsna, o Supreme spiritual entity, O Truth which underlies the universe, O ingredient of which the universe is composed, O You who are in one sense not different from everything, O You who are eternal, full of knowledge and bliss, O You Who appear according to your own sweet will, O You Who give shelter to all (who approach You), all glories unto You.


3) O Krsna, The Supreme Brahman, You contain the universe and You are the ultimate essence of the universe. You are without duality, full of truth, light, and bliss. You are self-effulgent and provide shelter for all of existence.


3) O unchanging and unlimited Krsna! You are always transcendentally pure and free from material mode. You are the effulgence and infallible Supreme Personality of Godhead. All glories unto You!



This is the first song to the Krsna Lila Stava.
