by Srila Jiva Gosvami

beloved of Vraja, please protect us.

2-3 I offer my respectful obeisances to the Sri Krsna who is known as Nanda's son, who is the protector of the cows, who fills the three worlds with bliss, who is the master of the birthless and perfect gopis, who is as dark as a monsoon cloud, and whose eyes are lotus flowers.

4 A person gradually growing old in Vrndavan tells his mind: Fool, now you are close to death. Drink this nectar I give you.

5 O mind, as you drink this nectar, think of yourself as being in Gokula, and think of the loving service you wish to offer the Lord.

6 May the gopa-prince Krsna, who makes the devotees blossom with happiness, and who is the auspiciousness of all the worlds and the gopis' beloved, protect us.

7-9 What sensible person on this earth will not take shelter of Lord Krsna, who filled his parents with wonder, who is the original Supreme Personality of Godhead as described in SB 1.3.28, and whose glory is seen in SB 3.2.23, 10.14.38, 10.12.11, 10.9.20 and 10.47.60? O mind, O brother mind, O my protector, please take shelter of Him. ("Alas, how shall I take shelter of one more merciful than He who granted the position of mother to a she-demon (Putana) although she was unfaithful and she prepared deadly poison to be sucked from her breast?" "There are people who say 'I know everything about Krsna.' Let them think that way. As far as I am concerned, I do not wish to speak very much about this matter. O my Lord, let me say this much: As far as Your opulences are concerned, they are all beyond the reach of my body, mind and words." "In this way, all the cowherd boys used to play with Krsna, who is the source of the Brahman effulgence for jnanis desiring to merge into that effulgence, who is the Supreme Personality of Godhead for the devotees who have accepted eternal servitorship, and who for ordinary persons is but another ordinary child. The cowherd boys, having accumulated the results of pious activities for many lives, were able to associate in this way with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. How can one explain their good fortune?" "Neither Lord Brahma, nor Lord Siva, nor even the goddess of fortune, who is always the better half of the Supreme Lord, can obtain from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the deliverer from this world, such mercy as received by mother Yasoda." "When Lord Sri Krsna was dancing with the gopis in the rasa lila, the gopis were embraced by the arms of the Lord. This transcendental favour was never bestowed upon the goddess of fortune or other consorts in the spiritual world. Indeed, never was such a thing imagined by the most beautiful girls in the heavenly planets, whose bodily aroma and luster resemble the lotus flower. And what to speak of worldly women who are very beautiful according to material estimation?"

10 O mind, please understand what I will now teach you: Krsna is a monsoon cloud of nectar. He is a kalpa-vriksha tree that fulfills all desires.

11 The root of that kalpa-vriksha tree is the pastimes that begin with His birth. The trunk is His eternal pastimes. The branches are the verses describing His pastimes in the different seasons. The fruit is love for Him.
