Shri Gokulananda-Govindadevastaka

Eight Payers Glorifying Shri Gokulananda-Govindadeva

 

1

koti-kandarpa-santarpa-vidhvamsana-

sviya-rupamrtaplavita-ksma-tala

bhakta-lokeksanam saksanam tarsayan

gokulananda-govinda tubhyam namah

 

Flooding the world with the nectar of Your handsomeness, a million times You drown the happinesses of material love and at every moment increase the devotees thirst to see You with their eyes.  O Govinda, O Gokulananda, I bow down before You.

 

2

yasya saurabhya-saulabhya-bhag-gopika

bhagya-lesaya laksmyapi taptam tatah

ninditendivara-shrika tasmai muhur

gokulananda-govinda tubhyam namah

 

Your handsomeness rebukes the blue lotus.  The goddess of fortune performed severe austerities to attain a fragment of the good fortune of the gopis, who easily attained Your fragrance.  O Govinda, O Gokulananda, I bow down before You.

 

3

vamsika-kanthayor yah svaras te sacet

tala-ragadiman sruty-anubhrajitah

ka sudha brahma kim ka nu vaikuntha-mud

gokulananda-govinda tubhyam namah

 

The tala-raga and other melodies sung by Your voice and flute shine in the ear.  What is nectar in comparison?  What is impersonal Brahman?  What is the happiness of Vaikuntha?  O Govinda, O Gokulananda, I bow down before You.

 

4

yat-pada-sparsa-madhurya-majjat-kuca

dhanyatam yanti gopyo ramato ‘py alam

yad-yaso-dundubher ghosana sarva-jid

gokulananda-govinda tubhyam namah

 

The breasts plunged into nectar by the touch of Your feet, the gopis attain a good fortune much greater than the goddess of fortune’s.  The sound of the dundubhi drums of Your fame conquers all.  O Govinda, O Gokulananda, I bow down before You.

 

5

yasya phela-lavasvadane patratam

brahma-rudradayo yanti naivanyake

adharam sidhum ete ‘pi vindanti no

gokulananda-govinda tubhyam namah

 

Brahma, Siva and the other demigods taste the remnants of Your meals.  They do not find nectar in the remnants from any other lips.  O Govinda, O Gokulananda, I bow down before You.

 

6

yasya lilamrtam sarvathakarsakam

brahma-saukhyad api svadu sarve jaguh

tat-pramanam svayam vyasasunuh suko

gokulananda-govinda tubhyam namah

 

Everyone proclaims that the all-attractive nectar of Your pastimes is greater than the impersonal Brahman.  Vyasa’s son Sukadeva Gosvami is a testament to this.  O Govinda, O Gokulananda, I bow down before You.

 

7

yat-sad-aisvaryam apy arya-bhaktatmani

dhyatam udyac-camatkaram anandayet

natha tasmai rasambhodhaye kotiso

gokulananda-govinda tubhyam namah

 

Your six wonderful opulences delight the hearts of the saintly devotees who meditate on them.  O Lord, O ocean of nectar, O Govinda, O Gokulananda, I bow down before You millions of times.

 

8

sindhu-majjan-mana vanchitam vindatam

 

May he who regularly reads this Gokulananda-Govindadevastaka and yearns to attain pure love and service for Your feet find his desire to plunge his heart in the ocean of Your sweetness fulfilled.
