par karenge naiya re, bhaja krishna kanhaiya,
krishna kanhaiya dauji ke bhaiya
krishna kanhaiya vamshi bajaiya,
makhana curaiya re, bhaja krishna kanhaiya (1)
Worship Kanhaiya*, the brother of Balarama. Kanhaiya’s lotus feet are the boat to
take us across the ocean of material life. Worship Kanhaiya, that Krishna who stays in
Vraja, playing the flute and from every gopi’s house steals butter (that is, the soft and
pure white hearts that are like butter).
[*Kanhaiya - Yashoda-maiya’s pet name for her darling son. This name is brimming over with
sweetness and affection.]
krishna kanhaiya girivara uthaiya,
krishna kanhaiya rasa racaiya
para karenge naiya re, bhaja krishna kanhaiya (2)
Worship Kanhaiya, that Krishna who lifted Govardhana Hill and performed the rasali
la. His lotus feet are the boat to take us across the ocean of material life.
mitra sudama tandula lae,

When His friend Sudama brought Him some low-grade rice, He accepted it, embraced
him and cried, “O My brother, you haven’t come for such a long time! Where have
you been? Did you forget Me?” Worship that Krishna!
arjuna ka ratha rana me haka,
shyamaliya giridhari baka
kali-naga nathaiya re, bhaja krishna kanhaiya (4)
In the Mahabharata war Shyamaliya (sweet, black, crooked Krishna) became Arjuna’s
chariot driver, directing the horses on the battlefield. He lifted Govardhana Hill at
such a tender age and He subdued Kaliya-naga by putting a rope through his nose,
dragging him out of the Yamuna. Worship that Krishna!
drupata-suta jaba dushtana gheri,

Worship that Kanhaiya who immediately came to protect Draupadi’s chastity by increasing
her cloth unlimitedly when she was surrounded by so many wicked men.
