Madhurāṣṭakam

His lips are a delight, His body is a delight, His eye is a delight, His smile is a delight, His chest is a delight, His gait is a delight; everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī1 is delightful.[1]

His speech is a delight, His acts are a delight, His clothes are a delight, His curves are a delight, His moving is a delight, His roaming is a delight; Everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī is delightful.[2]

His flute is a delight, His flowers (that He wears on ears or as garlands) are a delight, His palms are a delight, His feet are a delight, His dance is a delight, His friendship is a delight; Everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī is delightful.[3]

His songs are a delight, His yellow robes are a delight, His eating is a delight, His sleeping is a delight, His beauty is a delight, His tilaka is a delight; Everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī is delightful.[4]

His deeds are a delight, His floating (in water) is a delight, His taking away is a delight; His romantic charms are a delight, His words are a delight, His peaceful state is a delight; Everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī is delightful.[5]

His humming is a delight, His garland is a delight, His accompaniment Yamunā is a delight, His waves (generated by Him when entering the river) is a delight, His water (clinging on His body) is a delight, His lotus is a delight; Everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī is delightful.[6]

His cowherdesses are a delight, His sport is a delight, His togetherness is a delight, His freedom is a delight, His glance is a delight, His obedience is a delight; Everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī is delightful.[7]

His friends (Gopā) are a delight, His cows are a delight, His lasso is a delight, His created universe is a delight, His exploits over demons are a delight, the fruit thence obtained are a delight; Everything about the ruler of Madhurāpurī is delightful.[8]
