Salutations to the sea like Lord Krishna , Who decorates his head with peacock feathers, Who has the sweet sounding flute in his hand, And who is the music of the ocean of love. Manoja garva mochanam vishala lola lochanam, Vidhootha gopa sochanam namami padma lochanam, Kararavindha bhoodaram smithavaloka sundraram, Mahendra mana daranam, Namami Krishna varanam. Salutations to the elephant like Lord Krishna , Who lifted the mountain by his lotus soft hands, Who has a pretty gaze and smile, And who killed the pride of the great Indra. Kadhambha soonu kundalam sucharu ganda mandalam, Vrajanganaika vallabham namami Krishna durlabham. Yasodhata samodhaya sagopaya sananandaya, Yutham sukhaika dayakam namami gopa nayakam. Salutations to the chief of Gopas, Who grants supreme bliss, To Yasodha, gopas and Nanda , And who is the giver of pleasures.
