It was the ten-syllable Gopala Mantra:

 

gopijanavallabhaaya svaahaa

 

go-pi-ja-na-va-ll-bhaa-ya-svaa-haa

are the ten syllables.

 

This ten-syllable Gopala Mantra is a part of the eighteen-syllable Gopala Mantra glorified in the Gopala Tapani Upanishad and the Hari Bhakti Vilasa and one of the seven Mantras imparted at the time the Gayatri Diksha in our Vinoda Sarasvata Parampara:

 

klim krishnaya govindaya gopijana vallabhaya svaha.
