(1) Your eyes are rolling in ecstasy as You cast furtive glances. Defeating nectar, Your face is as effulgent and beautiful as the full moon. You are the reservoir of all transcendental qualities. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
(2) Your earrings, brilliant as the sun, dangle playfully upon Your attractive cheeks. O Prabhu! Maddened bumblebees hover above and drink the honey from the fragrant malatigarland decorating Your limbs. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
(3) Your long graceful arms hang down to Your knees, and they conquer the beauty of the trunk of an intoxicated elephant. With a thundering voice reverberating throughout the ten directions You cry out, ‘O brother, O brother! Where are You?’ The hearts of all the residents from the hellish regions to the heavenly planets are attracted by Yourirresistable beauty. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
(4) Sometimes in ecstasy You dance blissfully and roar so loudly that the vibration conquers the rumbling of clouds. From Your waist—which is as thin as a lion’s waist or adamru drum—hangs a beautiful blue silken cloth. Whenever You run swiftly along the bank of the Ganges the earth trembles below the caress of Your lotus feet. O NityanandaPrabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
(5) You have completely inundated the entire universe with the clouds of Your ecstasy. No one, be he miserable, poor, downtrodden, quarrelsome or sinful can escape the flood of Your mercy. Your beautiful lotus feet are softer than a tender green leaf. The beelike devotees always drink the sweet nectar flowing from Your lotus feet. O NityanandaPrabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
(6) Your jeweled anklebells move gently and tinkle sweetly. The soles of Your incomparably pure and soft lotus feet radiate a reddish hue resembling two beautiful lotus flowers. The cooling rays of the full moon have left the heavens to reside beneath Your lotus feet and emanate a shimmering effulgence from Your toenails. O NityanandaPrabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
(7) Out of fear of You the snake of Kali fled far away, thus making everyone happy. As the rising sun dispels the fear of darkness and gives life to the lotus flower, Your appearance removes everyone’s fear of their sinful reactions and gives new life and hope to Bhumi (Mother Earth), who was suffering greatly from the burden of those sins. ONityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
(8) With a slight smile radiating from Your lotus face You attract all beautiful girls. Who can understand the ecstatic emotions You relish when You fall to the ground in a swoon? Your lips tremble and sometimes You cry as You raise Your hands over Your head. O Nityananda Prabhu, I glorify You again and again. You are the beloved of Vasudha and Jahnava. Please give me the shelter of Your lotus feet.
