Gopālastotram

I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is bluish-black like a new cloud, Who has blue-lotus like eyes, Who is the dear-one of cowherdess, Who has the form of cowherd, Who has dark curly locks of hairs upward-tied with shining peacock-feathers, and Who is decorated by a flower-garland hung with kadamba-flowers.[1—2]

(I adore Kṛṣṇa), Who has moving curly-locks touching at the cheek-sides, Whose wide-chest is dazzled by a long garland of pearls, Whose form is sparkling due to golden bracelets which is resplendent like millions of diamonds, and Whose heaped-apparel is moved by agitation from soft-breeze.[3—4]

(I adore Kṛṣṇa), Who is repeatedly enticing the minds of sporting-cowherdesses by the sweet sounds of a flute kept on the hollow of his beautiful lips, Who is the bumble-bee drinking the nectar from the lotus-like bodies of cowherdesses, and Who is agitating their minds with smiling glances on the face.[5—6]

(I adore Kṛṣṇa), Who is together by adhering-together due to the upheaval of youth, Who is surrounded by the wives of Gopa (cowherds) which have variegated apparel and jewellery, Who is zealous for the sportive plays in the flowing lamp-black-like water of Kālindī (Yamunā), Who is wrestling somewhere with cowherds, and Who is speaking (guiding) to the herd of cows.[7—8]

(I adore Kṛṣṇa), Who is somewhere situated in Vṛndāvana in the shade of Kadamba and served by cool-breeze from the surface of the water of Kālindī, Who accepts a jewel-seat attached with a heap of precious-stones, and Who has arrived in the small gold-pavilion situated in the middle of the Kalpa-tree.[9—10]

(I adore Kṛṣṇa), Who is situated with zeal for the nectar of rasa (dance) in the serene Govardhana mountain whose directions are made flowery by the rejoicement brought by flowers of spring, Who held the mountain-like umbrella (Govardhana) at the tip of His left hand, and Who destroyed the unbreakable, thrown and free fond of slaughter-army-attacks.[11—12]

(I adore Kṛṣṇa), Who is gazed incessantly by the Gokula, which is associated with sounds of fervor made by the extremely joyous people and musical instruments, which is with its kinsmen, and which is looking forward to see Kṛṣṇa. [I adore] Kṛṣṇa, Whose raised hands are with cane and lasso, Whose hands are clapping, Whose hands are with an attempt to control those cows, and Who is graceful in the form of a cowherd.[13—14]

Man with devotion, who eulogizes Kṛṣṇa — Who is worthy of eulogies and Who is beyond everything — thrice per day, with soft and loving voice, using this eulogy composed by Narada and other best sages who are an expert in Veda and Vedāṅga, that man should think upon Kṛṣṇa. Of him, Kṛṣṇa is satisfied and bestows the desired wish.[15—16]
