Jai Sriman Narayana !!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, who recites melodious music on his flute, sitting on the river bank of Kalindi/Yamuna, he is a honeybee who finds immense pleasure in the lotus like faces of beautiful young maidens of Vraja.  He is venerated by the deities such as Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi/ Rama, Lord  Shambhu/Shiva,  Lord Brahma, Lord Indra/Amarapathi and Lord Ganesha.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha along with his consort Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, who holds flute on his left hand, beautiful hair locks decked with the feathers of peacock, attired in grand yellow silk garment.  He bestow side long glances upon his passionate devotees, he dwells in the sacred land of Vrindavan/Vraja and reveals his presence through pastimes.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha along with his consort Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, who resides on the shoreline of vast ocean, which is located close to the peak of Nilachala Hills has the resemblance of gold, with his brother mighty Lord Balabhadra and sister Subhadra in the middle, he provides an opportunity to the Suras to venerate him.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha along with Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, who is the ocean of mercy, has the marvelous appearance like dark clouds.  He is the delight of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi/ Rama and Goddess Sri Saraswathi/ Vani , his face has the resemblance of unblemished full blossomed lotus.  He is venerated by Surendras/deities and Sages; he is eulogized by Shruthi/Veda and Upanishads.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha along with Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, who is eulogized by the assembly of numerous Bhoodevas/Brahmins, at the glorious moments of his procession on the grand chariot, he is compassionate towards his ardent devotees and provides abundance of boons.  He is the ocean of mercy and an honest associate to all the worlds.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha along with Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, who is the jewel on the crown of Lord Brahma, has the eyes resemblance to full blown lotus flower petals, he dwells on the peak of Nilachala hill and his lotus feet are placed on the head of Lord Anantha.  He finds immense pleasure in the warm embrace of Goddess Sri Radharani, which is like a cool pond.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha along with Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, I do not pray for Kingdom, or Kanaka/ gold, or Manikyam/precious stones, or affluences.  I do not yearn for a beautiful bride or bridegroom as desired by the people.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha, who is always eulogized by Lord Shiva, I shall recite your glories and earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Oh! Lord Jagannatha, Oh! Surapathey,/Lord of Lords, kindly remove my insignificant material bondage and existence.  Oh! Yadhavapathey/Lord of Yadhavas, kindly eradicates the vast ocean like sins of mine.  It is definite that whoever surrenders to the lotus feet of Lord Jagannatha, would be protected.  Oh! Lord Jagannatha along with Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to become the constant object of my humble vision.
 
Whoever recites the glorious verses of Sri Jagannatha Ashtakam in the hours of dawn would be released from all the sin and attains the sacred abode of Lord Vishnu.

My salutation to Lord Govinda, who is the cause of perpetual bliss; he is the personification of eternal wisdom, truth, persistent and boundless in nature.   My salutation to Lord Govinda, who effortlessly crawl in the cow sheds, he is the solution to the troubles and he is beyond any tribulation,  My salutation to Lord Govinda who is the consort of Goddess Sri Mahalakshi,  Lord of the Universe appears in numerous forms or formless due to illusion.
 
My salutation to Lord Govinda, who is the cause of perpetual bliss, mischievous child of Yasodha who consumed mud and besieged with the punishment of Mother Yasodha, exposed visible and invisible part of fourteen worlds in his mouth, he is the pinnacle of the three worlds, exists in visible and invisible form and he is the Lord of the Earth.
 
My salutation to Lord Govinda, who is the cause of eternal bliss, killed several mighty demons, who were the enemies of Suras, in order to reduce the burden of Earth.  He alleviate the sorrows and illnesses in daily life, remains always detached, consumes butter in abundance, eats nothing other than the Universe,  shines in the crystal clear mind of devotees but cannot be exposed, he is the personification of  peace.
 
My salutation to Lord Govinda, who is the cause eternal bliss, protects all the living beings in the form of a mischievous cow herd, he protects whoever take good care of the cows. He good-naturedly lifted the Mount Govardhana and made the Gopis dance and Gopas delightful.  Oh!  Lord Govinda, you are unapproachable for the ignorant, oh! Lord Govinda you are the protector of cows and have many names.
 
My salutation to Lord Govinda, who is the cause of eternal bliss, present in every bunch of Gopis, appears in various forms and impossible to tell apart.  Oh! Lord Govinda, your magnificent form is completely covered by the dust raised by the hooves of cows.  You are approachable through sincere devotion and dedication of mind of the devotees, you are unreachable and your supremacy can be conceived only by the virtuous individuals in their thoughts.
 
My salutation to Lord Govinda, who is the cause of perpetual bliss, carried away the clothes of beautiful young maidens of Vraja while they were having bath in the river, and settled on the tree, shortly commanded them to come forward and collect their clothes without any clothes on their body.  Oh! Lord Govinda, who has perfect control over senses, you are the destroyer of sorrows and passion, you are intellect, and you are the personification of wisdom.
 
My salutation to Lord Govinda, who is the cause of perpetual bliss, you are gorgeous, you are the cause for all the causes, you are primordial with no beginning and no end, you have marvelously danced on the hoods of serpent Kaliya in the river Yamuna.  Oh! Lord Govinda, who is dark complexioned, omnipresent and destroyer of evil effects of Kali era, he is the cause of passage of Time from past to future.
 
My salutation to Lord Govinda who is the cause of perpetual bliss, dwells in the sacred land of Brindavan is being venerated by the deities, his nectar like smile has the resemblance of jasmine flower, and he is the provider of happiness to his associates.  Oh! Lord Govinda, whose two little feet are worshipped by great Sages and righteous people, Oh! Lord Govinda, you are the ocean of virtues which is venerated by all.
 
Whoever recites this splendid verses of  Sri Govinda Ashtakam and pronounce the various glorious names such as Govinda !  Achyutha !  Madhava ! Vishnu ! Gokulanayaka ! Krishna would be drenched in the nectar like devotion to Lord Govinda, all his/her sins will be washed off and eventually attain the abode of Lord Govinda which is the supreme abode of eternal bliss.
