Shri Vraja-Raja-Sutashtakam

An ancient prayer by an unknown Vaishnava author

 

nava-nirada-nindita-kanti-dharam

rasa-sagara-nagara-bhupa-varam

shubha-vankima-caru-shikhanda-shikham

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (1)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! His complexion is more effulgent than a fresh raincloud; He is the king of

paramours and the ocean of rasa; His crown is adorned with a lovely peacock feather

auspiciously tilted to the left (bowing towards Shri Radha’s feet).

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (2)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! His arched eyebrows belittle the rainbow (the bow of Indra); His pure moonlike

face, which dwarfs millions of moons, is adorned with an enchanting soft smile and fine

speech.

vraja-vasi-manohara-vesha-karam

bhrisha-lanchita-nila-saroja drisham

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (3)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! (Cupid’s body was burned by the anger of Lord Shiva, but) Krisna’s trembling

form is the true body of Cupid; He dresses enchantingly in a way that fascinates the

Vrajavasis; He is adorned with extraordinary eyes like blue lotus blossoms.

kati-veshtita-pita-patam sudhatam

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (4)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! His forehead is surrounded by curling locks of hair; swaying makara-shaped

earrings dangle from His ears; His waist is adorned with meticulously

arranged yellow silk which embraces His charming hips.

mani-ranjita-ganjita-bhringa-madam

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (5)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! Tinkling anklebells resound on His beautiful feet; He glows with jeweled

ornaments; His spirited behavior mocks the intoxication of honey bees; His soles are

marked with the flag, thunderbolt, fish and other charming symbols.

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (6)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! His graceful body is generously smeared with sandalwood paste; His glowing

Kaustubha gem overshadows the sun; He has appeared as the crown jewel among the

young boys of Vraja.

 

sura-vrinda-suvandya-mukunda-harim

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (7)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! He is the Supreme Lord Hari, Mukunda, who is worshiped by all the demigods

and sages; He is the crest-jewel of all controllers and the guru of all beings; He is the

lifter of Giri-Govardhana, the killer of the Mura demon and the master of Lord Shiva.

 

vrishabhanu-suta-vara-keli-param

rasa-raja-shiromani-vesha-dharam

jagad-ishvaram-ishvaram-idya-varam

bhaja krishna-nidhim vraja-raja-sutam (8)

 

Just worship Shri Krishna, the son of the king of Vraja, who is a treasure-house of priceless

jewels! He is dedicated to amorous escapades with the daughter of Vrishabhanu Maharaja,

impeccably dressing as the king of enjoyers of rasa; He is the supreme monarch and

the most worshipable Lord of the entire creation.
