OLord Mukunda! I bow down my head to your Lordship and respectfully askyou to fulfill this one desire of mine: that in each of my futurebirths I will, by your Lordship's mercy, always remember and neverforget Your lotus feet.

OLord Hari, it is not to be saved from the dualities of materialexistence or the grim tribulations of the Kumbhipaka hell that I prayto your lotus feet. Nor is my purpose to enjoy the soft-skinnedbeautiful women who reside in the gardens of heaven. I pray to Yourlotus feet only so that I may remember You alone in the core of myheart, birth after birth.

Omy Lord! I have no attachment for religiosity, or for accumulatingwealth, or for enjoying sense gratification. Let these come as theyinevitably must, in accordance with my past deeds. But I do pray forthis most cherished boon: birth after birth, let me render unflinchingdevotional service unto your two lotus feet.

OLord, killer of the demon Naraka! Let me reside either in the realm ofthe demigods, in the world of human beings, or in hell, as You please.I pray only that at the point of death I may remember Your two lotusfeet, whose beauty defies that of the lotus growing in the Sarat season.
cintayami harim eva santatam
nanda-gopa-tanayam parat param
Ialways think of Lord Hari, whose joyful lotus face bears a gentlesmile. Although He is the son of the cowherd Nanda, He is also thesupreme Absolute Truth worshiped by great sages like Narada.

Thedesert of material existence has exhausted me. But today I will castaside all troubles by diving into the lake of Lord Hari and drinkingfreely of the abundant water of His splendor. The lotuses in that lakeare His hands and feet, and the fish are His brilliant shining eyes.That lake's water relieves all fatigue and is agitated by the waves Hisarms create. Its current flows deep beyond fathoming.
mura-bhidi ma viramasva citta rantum

Omind, please never stop taking pleasure in thinking of the Mura demon'sdestroyer, who has lotus eyes and bears the conch and disc weapons.Indeed, I know of nothing else that gives such extreme pleasure asmeditating on Lord Hari's divine feet.

Ofoolish mind, stop your fearful fretting about the extensive tormentsdealt out by Yamaraja. How can your enemies, the sinful reactions youhave accrued, even touch you? After all, is your master not the SupremeLord, the husband of goddess Sri? Cast aside all hesitation andconcentrate your thoughts on Lord Narayana, whom one very easilyattains through devotional service. What can that dispeller of thewhole world's troubles not do for His own servant?
vishama-visaya-toye majjatam aplavanam

Thepeople in this vast ocean of birth and death are being blown about bythe winds of material dualities. As they flounder in the perilouswaters of sense indulgence, with no boat to help them, they are sorelydistressed by the need to protect their sons, daughters, and wives.Only the boat that is Lord Vishnu can save them.

Dearmind, do not bewilder yourself by anxiously thinking, How can I crossthis fathomless and impassable ocean of material existence? There isone who can save you--Devotion. If you offer her to the lotus-eyedLord, the killer of Narakasura, she will carry you across this oceanwithout fail.

OLord of the three worlds, we are drowning in the vast ocean of samsara,which is filled with the waters of material hankering, with many wavesof illusion whipped up by the winds of lust, with whirlpools of wives,and with vast schools of sharks and other sea monsters who are our sonsand brothers. O giver of all benedictions, please grant me a place onthe boat of devotion that is Your lotus feet.

Onceour savior has been seen, the whole earth becomes like a mere speck ofdust, all the waters of the ocean become mere droplets, the totality offire becomes an insignificant spark, the winds become just a faintsigh, and the expanse of space becomes a tiny hole. Great lords likeRudra and Grandfather Brahma become insignificant, and all the demigodsbecome like small insects. Indeed, even one particle of dust from ourLord's feet conquers all.

Ourmaster, the Personality of Godhead Narayana, who alone rules the threeworlds, whom one can serve in meditation, and who happily shares Hispersonal domain, has manifested Himself before us. Yet still we beg forthe service of some minor lord of a few villages, some lowly person whocan only meagerly reward us. Alas, what foolish wretches we are!

Thathead is the loftiest which is white with dust from bowing down to LordKrishna. Those eyes are the most beautiful which darkness has abandonedafter they have seen Lord Hari. That intelligence is spotless--like thewhite glow of the moon or a conchshell--which concentrates on LordMadhava. And that tongue rains down nectar which constantly glorifiesLord Narayana.

Allglories to Lord Narayana! Without remembrance of His lotus feet,recitation of scripture is merely crying in the wilderness, regularobservance of severe vows enjoined in the Vedas is no more than a wayto lose weight, execution of prescribed pious duties is like pouringoblations onto ashes, and bathing at various holy sites is no betterthan an elephant's bath.

OCupid, abandon your residence in my mind, which is now the home of LordMukunda's lotus feet. You have already been incinerated by Lord Siva'sfiery glance, so why do you neglect Lord Murari's disc?

Thinkonly of your master and sustainer, the Supreme Lord, who is known asNarayana and Madhava and who lies on the body of the serpent Ananta. Heis the darling son of Devaki, the hero of the demigods, and the Lord ofthe cows, and He holds a conchshell and the bow Sarnga. What will yougain by thinking of anything else?

OMadhava, please do not let me even glance at those whose pious creditsare so depleted that they have no devotion for Your lotus feet. Pleasedo not let me be distracted from listening to the worthy narrations ofYour pastimes and become interested in other topics.
