Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, cowherds who were witnessed your fearlessness and achievement by lifting the Mount Govardhan, considered you as Vishweshwara/ Lord of the Universe and enquired the details of your horoscope to Nanda.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Nanda detailed them about the predictions of Sage Garga and the prominence of Supreme Lord.  Consequently, the love and respect of the cowherds doubled towards you.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, ultimately Lord Indra, King of deities’ massive pride and ego was trampled; he realized the true form of you.  He came down to Earth with the divine cow Surabhi/Kamadhenu and eulogized the glories of you and prostrated by placing his jeweled crown before your lotus feet.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, the divine cow Surabhi/Kamadhenu shuddered her milk out of extreme love towards you; hence you were named as ‘Govinda’ savior of cows/Lord of cows.  Airavatha, the celestial vehicle of Indra brought the sacred waters of celestial Ganga and blissfully poured over you.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Oh! Jagathrayaisha, Lord of the Universe! You have venerated as the deity of Gokula, soon Gokula attained incredible prosperities and glories like Sri Vaikundha and the Abode of the celestials.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, once Nanda was bathing in the early hours of dawn in the brimming river Yamuna was seized away by the convoy of Lord Varuna.  You have gone to the abode of Varuna to save your father and accomplished the purpose of your human form.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Lord Varuna was surprised to witness your presence in his abode, eventually he venerated you with extreme devotion and dedication.  Shortly, you have returned home with your father, later Nanda shared this splendid experience with his group of men.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, the cowherds realized that you are the Supreme form of Lord Hari.  Oh! Omnipresent Lord Vishnu, they had an indomitable desire to feel the supreme bliss, you have revealed the heavenly bliss which is not attainable without intense devotion.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, you have revealed the ecstatic form of you, Great Ocean of liberation brimming with nectar and the cowherds immersed in it for a while, later they were brought back to their usual form of worldly state of conscious.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, you have revealed the blissful form of yours to your devotees like a berry in palm, that was not easily attainable, and it was not happened in any of your incarnations other than your personification as cowherd.  Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, I earnestly pray to protect us from all ailments.

Oh Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa ! Heavy downpour was begun accompanied by enormous hailstorm; the cowherds were in a wretched state due to the wrathful action of Lord Indra, they cried loudly to save them.  Oh! Supreme Lord, you have pacified them after listening to their cries.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, replied with asmile “ Mount Govardhana is the deity of clan of Vrajabhumi, Lord Indra is the enemy of Mount Govardhana and it will confront the attack of Lord Indra, there is no doubt in it.”  Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, immediately you have uprooted the mountain Govardhana with your tender arms.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Mount Govardhana was held high on your lotus like upper limb, all the cowherds with their belongings gathered under the Mount Govardhana, eventually the upper part of the soft sand bed of the mountain well protected the cowherds from the torrential rain.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, while holding the Mount Govardhana, the cowherds gathered of your age group was engaged in playful conversations, you caressed the cows assembled around you with one hand and the cowherds were extremely blissful.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Gopas assembled were commented on your might saying “It’s marvelous, He is lifting the colossal mount Govardan on his left hand like a lotus stalk for so long or was that the power of Mount Govardan elevated up by itself ? ”
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Lord Indra thought that the arrogant little boy will put down the Mount Govardan on it place when his hands starts paining.  Thus, Lord Indra with all vengeance continued pouring heavily for another seven days.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, you have not moved an inch from the place, clouds were drained by over pouring, and rain water were drifted and dried up by the wind.  Lord Indra, King of deities noticed your valor and got scared, eventually he ran off from the place.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, heavy rain has stopped; cows and cowherds came out of the Mount Govardana.  Oh! Supreme Lord, you have placed the colossal mount Govardana on Earth, the entire cowherd assembled were rushed towards you and embraced.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Oh! Kamalapathey, consort of Lakshmi, all the deities praised your valor, eulogized the incarnation of you as giant boar that had lifted the Universe, so lifting the Mount Govardan was not a difficult task for you at all.  Oh!

Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, once the cowherds were collecting the necessary materials for a grand Yagna to appease Lord Indra.  Oh! Shourey, you wanted to trample the pride of Lord Indra, although you are aware of the purpose of preparations, politely enquired Nanda and other cowherds about the purpose of the Yagna.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Nanda described the need to perform Yagna every year to appease Lord Indra , in return Lord Indra will happily provide plentiful rain on Earth, for all the humans and living creatures depends on the rain as their livelihood, especially people like cowherds who entirely depends on grass and water for their domestic animals.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, you have declared after listening to Nanda that it was not the right thought to believe Lord Indra provides rain and actually it was due to the past actions of the living beings generates abundance of rain.   In this woodland, what kind of offerings they do to Indra?
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, you have affirmed that their opinion was true; cattle are the wealth of cowherds and described that the Mount Govardhana is the prime source of water and grass, therefore the offerings should be made to Mount Govardhana.  In this way, Oh! Supreme Lord, you have declared the need to worship the auspicious things and holy men on Earth, along with the deities.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, after listening to your sermon, the cowherds offered great reverence to holy men, prepared abundance of offerings for Mount Govardhana, they performed circumambulation of the mountain with high reverence and devotion.  Oh! Supreme Lord, you have become the soul of Mount Govardhana and consumed the entire offerings to please the cowherds,
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, spoke “Oh! Cowherds, was not that true? Mount Govadharna had consumed all your offerings by its own, therefore Lord Indra, the enemy of mountain is angry.  The Mount Govardhana is well capable to protect all of us. ” Thus, inhabitants of Gokula were extremely happy listening to Supreme Lord.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, the people of Vrajabhumi were all jubilant returned with you to their land.  Eventually, Lord Indra came to know about the Yagna was being stopped by you, he could not put up with the idea, his mind was surmounted by the dominance of Rajoguna.  He was infuriated, though he was aware of the fact that his prestigious position was ordained by you.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Lord Indra whose mind was completely overpowered by false pride and ego decided to win over you, in order to affirm the fact that even the supreme Lord Vishnu,  destroyer of demon Madhu in the form of human shows any disrespect towards the deities would be destroyed.  So he decided to destroy the clan of cowherds and their prosperities to win over you.
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Lord Indra released heavy down pour with lightning and crash of thunder, moving on his celestial vehicle Airavatha accompanied by Lord Agni and Lord Vayu who were surreptitiously disdainful to him.  Oh! Lord Tribhuvanapathey, who is not afflicted by your illusion/Maya?
 
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, you have pacified the cowherds and spoke “Although Lord Indra is angry, we are fearless due to the grace of holy men & Mount Govardhana.”  In this way, you have convinced the truth to cowherds and stood patiently waiting for the arrival of Lord Indra.  Oh! Lord Guruvayurappa, slayer of demon Mura, I earnestly pray to protects us from ailments.
