English translation


1. Oh God who sleeps on the ocean of milk,

Oh God who is divinely happy,

Oh God with a flag with Garuda,

Who came to solve problems of devas.


2. Oh Krishna who looks like God of love,

Oh Krishna who has lotus like eyes,

You made me drown in the perennial sea of joy.


3.Without any problem come before me,

Hug me and help me climb the chariot.


4.Oh God who has pretty eyes that does only good,

You insulted Shishupala who was ruling the world.


5.You completely cured my incurable worries,

You insulted the silly minded Rugmi,

Made me drown in great joy,

And appeared before me in your full form.
