Sri Sri Damodarastakam

By Sri Satyavrata Muni
Chanted in the mornings during the Kartik month

namamisvaram sach-chid-ananda-rupam
lasat-kundalam gokule bhrajamanam
yasoda-bhiyolukhalad dhavamanam
paramrstam atyam tato drutya gopya [1]

namamisvaram – obeisance to the Supreme Lord; sach-chid-ananda-rupam – possessing an eternal, cognisant and blissful form; lasat – shining; kundalam – earrings; gokule – in Gokula; bhrajamanam – resplendent; yasoda – Mother Yasoda; bhiya-ulukhalad – afraid of a mortar; dhavamanam – running; paramrstam – grasped, handled roughly; atyam – extremely; tato – then; drutya – quickly; gopya – gopi.

I am offering my obeisance to the eternal, all-cognisant and blissful Supreme Lord who wears shining earrings and is resplendent in His eternal abode, Gokula, who runs away from a mortar in fear of His Mother Yasoda but is then outsmarted and caught roughly by her.

I am offering my obeisance to Lord Damodar (who was tied around His belly with a rope), who is crying bitterly and wiping His fearful eyes with His lotus hands. He is sobbing again and again, which makes the necklace on His chubby neck (adorned with three sweet lines) shake.

itidrk sva-lilabhir ananda-kunde
sva-ghosam nimajjantam akhyapayantam

He immerses His associates into an ocean of bliss by the sight of His pastimes and makes it known among scholars who know His absolute supremacy that He becomes subjugated by His devotee. Hundreds of times I am offering with love my obeisances to this Lord.

Disappearance of Srila Haridas Thakur
'Prabhu, do not give me Maya. I know you love me so much, that is why I do not want to hear from You any further. Please give me some mercy—I want to go before You. Please, Prabhu, fulfil my desire.'

 

      

Sanatan Goswami cried, 'Prabhu, You are giving bitter to me, and You are giving sweet to Jagadananda Pandit.'
