Eight Prayers Glorifying the Master of Six Opulences

 

1

sva-janmany aisvaryam balam iha vadhe daitya-vitater

yasah partha-trane yadu-puri maha-sampadam adhat

param jnanam jisnau musalam anu vairagyam anu yo

bhagaih sadbhih purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanayah

 

May Nanda’s son, who is full of six opulences, who from His very birth was supremely (1) opulent, who displayed supreme (2) strength by killing a multitude of demons, who became supremely (3) famous by protecting Arjuna, who manifested supreme (4) wealth at Dvaraka, the capitol of the Yadus, who spoke supreme transcendental (5) knowledge to Arjuna, and who exhibited supreme (6) renunciation in the Yadus’ fratricidal war, be pleased with me.

 

2

catur-bahutvam yah svajani-samaye yo mrd-asane

jagat-kotim kuksy-antara-parimitatvam sva-vapusah

dadhi-sphote brahmany atanuta parananta-tanutam

mahaisvaryaih purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanayah

 

May Nanda’s son, who is full of great opulences, who at the time of His birth had a four-armed form, who once at clay, who revealed millions of universes within His mouth, who broke a yoghurt pot, and who displayed numberless transcendental forms to Brahma, be pleased with me.

 

3

balam bakyam danta cchadana-varayoh kesini nrge

nrpe bahvor anghreh phanini vapusah kamsa-marutoh

giritre daityesv apy atanuta nijastrasya yad ato

mahau jobhih purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanayah

 

He employed the strength of His two lips on Putana, the strength of His arms on Kesi and Nrga, the strength of His feet on Kaliya, the strength of His body on Kamsa and Trnavarta, and the strength of His weapons on Banasura and other demons.  May Nanda’s son, who possesses all strength, be pleased with me.

 

4

Yato datte muktim ripu-vitataye yan nara-janir

vijeta rudrader ap nata-janadhina iti yat

sabhayam draupadya vara-krd ati-pujyo nrpa-makhe

yasobhis tat purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanayah

 

He possesses all fame because He gives liberation to His enemies, because although He took birth in human society, He defeated Siva and the other demigods, because He is submissive to the humble devotees who offer obeisances to Him, because He gave a benediction to Draupadi in the assembly, and because He was lavishly worshipped in the Rajasuya sacrifice.  May Nanda’s son be pleased with me.

 

5

asakhyata gopyo vraja-bhuvi mahisyo madu-pure

sutah pradyumnadyah sura-taru-sudharmadi ca dhanam

bahir dvari brahmady api bali-vaham stauti yad atah

shriyam puraih purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanayah

 

He has numberless gopis in Vraja, numberless queens and sons in Dvaraka, parijata trees, the sudharma assembly house, and other opulences.  Outside His door Brahma and the demigods offer prayers and bring gifts.  May Nanda’s son, who possesses all wealth, be pleased with me.

 

6

nyadhad gita-ratnam tri-jagad atulam yat priya-sakhe

param tattvam premnoddhava-parama-bhakte ca nigamam

nija-prana-presthasv api rasa-bhrtam gopa-kulajasv

ato jnanaih purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanayah

 

He gave to a dear friend the jewel Bhagavad-gita, which has no equal in the world.  With love He gave to Uddhava the ultimate truth of the Vedas.  He gave to the saintly gopis, who thought Him more dear than  life, the knowledge of the sweetest nectar.  May Nanda’s son, who possesses all knowledge, be pleased with me.

 

7

krtagaskam vyadham satanum api vaikuntham anayat

mamtvasyaikagran api parijanan hanta vijahau

yad apy ete srutya dhruva-tanutayoktas tad api ha

sva-vairagyaih purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanaya

 

He brought an offensive hunter to Vaikuntha in his own body.  He abandoned His own proud relatives, even though the sruti declares that they were already liberated and had eternal spiritual bodies.  May Nanda’s son, who possesses all renunciation, be pleased with me.

 

8

ajatvam janmitvam ratir aratiteharahitata

salilatvam vyaptih parimitir ahanta-mamatayoh

pade tyagatyagav ubhayam api nityam sad urari-

karotisah purnah sa bhavatu mude nanda-tanayah

 

Although He is unborn, He takes birth.  Although He is affectionate, He is aloof from everything.  Although He enjoys pastimes, he is inactive.  He is both all-pervading and limited.  He possesses and does not possess ego and possessiveness.  May Nanda’s son, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is full of all opulences, be pleased with me.

 

9

samudyat-sandeha-jvara-sata-haram bhesaja-varam

jano yah seveta prathita-bhagavattastakam idam

tad-aisvarya-svadaih sva-dhiyam ati-velam sarasayan

labhetasau tasya priya-parijananugya-padavim

 

He who serves this Bhagavattastaka, which is an excellent medicine to remove the hundred fevers of doubt, and becomes overwhelmed with happiness by tasting in his mind the sweetness of the Lord’s opulences, enters the path that leads to the Lord’s personal association.
