TRANSLATION

1) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. He is Lord Visnu, embraced by the goddess of fortune. He is the witness residing in the bodies of all moving and unmoving beings. He is supremely pure. He is the killer of the demons. His eyes are lotus flowers. He holds a club, conchshell, and cakra. He wears a glorious flower-garland. He is always blissful and handsome.

 

2) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. From Him the sky, the wind, the universes, and all else were born. With a fragment of His own bliss He protects all the worlds. He killed the Madhu demon. At the time of cosmic devastation with a single fragment of His power He removes everything, taking it all within Him. He is all-powerful.

 

3) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. The yamas, niyamas, senses, and all else rest within His heart. The wise philosophers see that He is the supreme object of worship, the magician that has manifested this world.

 

4) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. Standing in this world, He controls the earth, although this truth even the earth itself does not understand. This the Vedas declare of Him. He is the master of all the universes. He is supremely pure. He is the supreme controller. He is the supereme object of meditation. He gives liberation to the sages, demigods, and human beings.

 

5) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. By His power Indra and the demigods defeat the demons. No one is independent of Him. Nothing ever happens without His sanction. He removes the pride of they who are proud of their learning or their victory over others.

 

6) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. A person who does not meditate on Him becomes a pig or some other beast. A person who does not know anything about Him becomes afraid of repeated birth and death. A person who does not remember Him is born as a worm for a hundred births. He is the all-powerful Lord.

 

7) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. He cuts into pieces the fears and sufferings of the people. He is the best of all shelters. He is the remover of illusions. He is dark like a rain cloud. He is graceful and handsome. He is the friend of the boys in Vraja. He is the friend of Arjuna. He is self-born. He is the father of all who are born. To all who act rightly He gives the gift of happiness.

 

8) I take shelter of Lord Krsna, the master of all the worlds. I pray that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. Whenever there is a decline of religion and the people of the worlds are disturbed by troubles, then Lord Krsna, who is the unborn master of the worlds and the upholder of religious principles, manifests His form in this world. He is the protector of the saintly devotees. He is effulgent, pure, and handsome. He is glorified in all the scriptures. He is the master of Vraja.
