ham bhaktana ke, bhakta hamāre

suna arjuna, pratigyā merī, yaha vrata ṭarata na ṭāre

jo mama bhakta soń baira karata hai, so nija bairī mero

dekhi bicāri, bhaktahita-kāran, hāńkata hauń ratha tero

sūradāsa suni bhakta-virodhī, cakra sudarśana dhārau

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) [Lord Krsna says to Arjuna] “I am the devotee of My devotees. Listen to My promise, O Arjuna! This vow of Mine will never quiver.

 

1) “I carry on the duty to protect My devotees and fulfill of Their tasks, and will go to them, even barefooted. Wherever and whenever suffering and pain falls upon My devotees, then and there, I appear there to relieve their suffering.”

 

2) “Whoever displays enmity towards My devotees are indeed My enemies. Upon your seeing helplessness, for the sake of the well-being for My devotees, I steer your chariot.”

 

3) “I win for victory of My devotees, and lose at the their losses.” Sura Dasa hears that He bears His sudarsana disc in opposition to those who oppose His devotees.
