Kṛṣṇāṣṭakam

I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who is the son of Vasudeva, Who is the Lord, Who slayed Kaṁsa and Cāṇūra, and Who is the bliss of Devakī I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who is surrounded by flowers, Who is adorned with a garland and anklets, and Who has gem-studded necklace and arm-bracelet.[1—2]

I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who is adorned with curly locks of hair, Who has a face resplendent like full-moon, and Who has shining earrings. I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who is with the perfume of Mandāra (a coral tree flower), Who has beautiful smile, Who has four hands (as Viṣṇu), and Who has peacock feather at the forehead.[3—4]

I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who has eyes like blooming lotus flower, Who resembles a new blue cloud, and Who is the best in the dynasty of Yadu. I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who plays with Rukmiṇī (Lakṣmī), Who is adorned with yellow-robes, and Who has obtained Tulasī perfume.[5—6]

I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who has the marks of saffron from the dual-breasts of the cowherdesses, Who is the abode of Lakṣmī (Śrī), and Who has mighty arrows. I adore Kṛṣṇa, Who is the preceptor of the universe, Who has the sign of ‘‘Śrīvatsa’’ at His broad-chest, Who has a flower-garland, and Who holds a conch and a discus.[7—8]

Having awaken in the morning, those who study these blissful Cantos on Kṛṣṇa, destroy their sins of millions from birth.[9]
