bhaje vrajaika-mandanam samasta-papa-khandanam
sva-bhakta-citta-ranjanam sadaiva nanda-nandanam
su-piccha-guccha-mastakam su-nada-venu-hastakam
ananga-ranga-sagaram namami krsna-nagaram

I worship the unique ornament of Vraja,
Who smashes everyone's sins,
Who pleases the hearts of his own devotees,
Who is always the son of Nanda,
Whose head is adorned with nice peacock feather,
Whu holds a sweet-sounding flute,
Who is an ocean of amorous dalliances...
........I bow to Krishna the Paramour..........

mahendra-mana-daranam smarami krsna balakam

Who relieves Cupid of his pride,
Whose forehead bears sandalwood tilak,
Who is splendrous with nice yellow dress...
...I bow to He of lotus eyes,
Who is beautified by lotus hands,
Who is graced by lovely smiling glances,
Who curbs the vanity of the king of demigods...
.....i remember the child Krishna.....

kadamba-sunu-kundalam su-caru-ganda mandalam
vrajanganaika-vallabham namami krsna-durlabham
yashodaya samodaya sakopaya daya-nidhim
ulukale su-dus saham namami nanda-nandanam

Who wears kadamba-flower earrings
that caress His fine and charming cheeks,
Who is the sole dearmost of the residents of Vraja,
I bow to rarely-attained Krishna,
Who is the reservoir of mercy for Yashoda,
Whether she is pleased or angry with Him,
He even tolerated being tied by her togrinding mortar...
...i bow to Nanda -Nandana.....

Who is the fresh young cowherd hero,
Who is the ocean of fresh sportive pastimes,
Who is gorgeous like a fresh new raincloud..
...I worship the only Shelter of Vraja
I have forever offered my own mind
unto the lotus feet of He
Who is the dear boy of Nanda
and the protector of all His devotees...

Who is the leader of all the cowherd folk,
Whose lotus eyes are the sole enchantment,
I bow to He who plays flute in the bowers,
Who is nicely decorated with regal flowers,
Whose eye-corners are splendrously colored,
Who always associates with virtuous gopis,
From day to day He is newer and newer...
...i bow to the boy of Nanda....

...i bow to Krishna Who is eager for fun...

Who delivers souls from the burning material ocean
(wich is a mere ornament for His ear)
Who is the dear boy of mother Yashoda...
...i bow to the stealer of milk products.

samasta-mugdha-gopika manoja-kama-dayakam

kishora-kanti-ranjanam su-shobhitam drig-anjanam
gajendra-moksha-karinam namami loka-sammatam

Who imparts amorous desires to all
the hopelessly innocent cowherd girls,
I bow to He Who increases His devotees prosperity,
Who is fond of yogurt,Who is prayed to by all souls,
Who is tinged with the luster of fresh youth,
Who is made nicely splendrous by His dark eye-lining cosmetics,
Who is the deliverer of Gajendra.....
......i bow to He Who is honored by all the worlds....

nikunja-manju-madhuri-priyali-vrinda-sundarim
labheham-indira-stutam tatha-kripa vidhiyatam
pramanitam stava-dvayam pathanti pratar utthitah
ta eva nanda-nandanam milanti bhava samsthitah

One who arises in the morning and recites these two authoritative prayers (Radha-Kripa-Kataksha Stava-Raja and Krishna-Kripa-Kataksha-Stotram) attains His appropriate mercy by becoming a beautiful girl amongst the assembly of dear gopi's absorbed in the sweetness of the secret forest bowers, a post that is cherished even for the Goddess of Fortune, such a soul certainly meets Nanda-nandana face-to-face and remains permanently situated in ecstatic loving emotions.
