          govi.nda dAmodara mAdhaveti ..  ..

 

krshNA (draupadI, the dark beauty) was pulled by her robes and hair

and dragged by duhSAsana, in front of the kuru and the pANdava;

with none to protect her, she wailed then, gOvinda! dAmOdara! mAdhava!                             .

SrI krshNa! vishNu! O the foe of madhu and

kaiTabha! you verily are compassionate unto

 your devotee!   Rescue me, O bhagavan!

Enemy of mura, kESava, lord of the worlds!

gOvinda! dAmOdara! mAdhava!

 

bhagavaan - characterised by 'bhaga', the combination of

the qualities of jnAnam, Sakti, balam, aiSvaryam,

 vIryam and tejas, as defined in vishNu purANam .                             .

          govi.nda dAmodara mAdhaveti ..  ..

 

The gOpa lass had forfeited her heart

to the feet of murAri;  and

wanting to sell yogurt,

she called out absent-mindedly,

gOvinda! dAmOdara! mAdhava!                             .

          gR^ihe yashodA vichikitsayAni .

uvAcha satyaM vada he murAre

          govi.nda dAmodara mAdhaveti ..  ..

 

yaSOdA said, Tell me the truth, murAri!

gOvinda! dAmOdara! mAdhava!

 

*the first 2 pAda of the Slokam are garbled;

I could not guess this either .                             .

          satyaM hitaM tvaM paramaM vadAmi .

avarNayeta madhurAxarANi

          govi.nda dAmodara mAdhaveti ..  ..

 

These verily are very euphonious syllables,

they constitute Truth,

they are the supreme comfort,

they are dear to us,

 repeat them to savour on the tip of the tongue,

gOvinda! dAmOdara! mAdhava!                             .

chakrapANi, one adorning the chakra-discus;

 the divyAyudham, the divine weaponry, is

 borne by him as trinket, divyAbharaNam!                              .

This the essence and ultimate of happiness;

this is what one would chant at the height of grief;

and gOvinda ... this is what one would utter when

departing from hither.

gOvinda! dAmOdara! mAdhava!                             .

He who speaks can tell these Names, but few do it!

thus, alas, is men's orientation towards suffering.

But, my lips, drink of this and this very elixir,

 gOvinda, dAmOdara, mAdhava!
