Oh Lord Nandagopala, Mukunda, Gokula Nandana, you sported on the banks of the river Yamuna.
Oh Madhava, you are the one who held the Mandara mount. Oh Muralidhara, Madhusudana, oh Hari, protect me.
He has a smiling face, beautiful feet, lotus-like eyes, and protects those who seek refuge in him. He is adorned with yellow silk, and reclines on a serpent couch. He eradicates the evils of the Kali age, and is the fountain of mercy. He is worshipped by a host of sages, and gives joy to Guruguha. He has Vaikuntha as his abode, and is steeped in bliss forever. He held aloft the Govarddhana mountain, and is paramour of the Gopikas. He is Govinda.
