Oh Narayana , the thought of your name,
Is the essence of nectar and let it come to my toungue.
1. How can the sins committed in my life leave and run away from me.
Whether I am in the state sitting, standing , singing or running ,
Or stay without bothering about the crores of recreations ,
2.Whether I go to the town or stay inside the town ,
Or whether all my secret wishes are not satisfied,
Oh God with lotus on belly , Oh God who was charioteer of Arjuna,
Let me be able to chant your name without getting bored.
3.Whether I am hungry , or not hungry or when I am upset or flying with happiness,
Oh son of Vasudeva, killer of Shishupala killer of Rakshasas, how can I forget your name.
4.Whether I am in trouble or in greatly elated mood ,
Or even if my mind has been spoiled to any extent,
When the learned people chant “Krishna,” “Krishna”,
Oh God , let me chant your eight lettered mantra .
5.Whether in dreams or in perturbed state or peaceful time or in bad temper,
Oh consort of daughter of Janaka would you not make me remember,
Your lotus like feet at least once, won’t you?
6.When fever comes or when cold comes or again and again when shivering comes,
Understand that Hari Narayana is the one who removes all our problems,
And meditate on him throughout the day and night without forgetting, Ok.
7.Oh Hari after always make me keep your thousand names in my mind,
Says Purandara Vittala instead of thinking about it only at time of death.
(Note. Many people sing only the second and 7th charanams instead of all the verses.)
