(by Baladeva Vidyabhushana)
krishnas tri-shaktir bahu-murtir ishvaro
vishvaika-hetuh sa karotu nah shubham
May Lord Krishna, the all-powerful Supreme Personality of Godhead, who appears in many forms, is the original creator of the universe, the master of the three potencies, full of transcendental knowledge and bliss, very dear to the devotees, and an ocean of unlimited auspicious qualities, grant auspiciousness to us.
vyasam satyavati-sutam muni-gurum narayanam samstumo
vaishampayanam ucyatahvaya-sudhamodam prapadyamahe
gangeyam sura-mardana-priyatamam sarvartha-samvid-varam
sat-sabhyan api tat-katha-rasa-jhusho bhuyo nanaskurmahe
Let us glorify Shrila Vyasadeva, the spiritual master of the great sages, the literary incarnation of Lord Narayana and the son of Satyavati. Let us surrender to Vaishampayana Muni, the speaker of the Mahabharata who became jubilant by drinking the nectar of Lord Vishnu's thousand names. Let us bow down before Krishna's friend Bhishma, the best of the wise and the son of Ganga-devi, and let us also bown down before the saintly devotees who relish the narrations of Lord Vishnu's glories.
nityam nivasatu hridaye
chaitanyatma murarir nah
gajapatir anukampaya yasya
May Lord Murari, who has personally appeared as Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, eternally reside within our hearts. He has mercifully purified, engladdened and liberated His devotees, such as Gajendra and Maharaja Prataparudra.
prakirtayan yati vindate sheshah
jayanti namani tani krishnasya
All glories to the holy names of Lord Krishna, the fulfiller of everyone's desire. Ananta Shesha finds ever-fresh bliss in glorigying Lord Krishna's holy names.
hari-bhaktas tan namasyamah
bhashyam yesham kripaya
namartha-sudha bhaved etat
We offer respectful obeisances to those great devotees who are completely devoted to chanting the holy names of Lord Hari. It is by their mercy that I am able to write this Namartha-sudha-bhashya (commentary on the Vishnu-sahasra-nama, entitled "The Nectar of the Meaning of Lord Hari's Holy Names").
