devakī paramānandaṁ kṛṣṇaṁ vande jagadgurum

I offer my obeisance’s to Lord Kṛṣṇa, the beloved son of Vasudeva, who killed the great demons Kaṁsa and Cāṇūra, who is the source of great joy to Mother Devakī; and who is indeed a world teacher and spiritual master of the universe.

(2)
atasīpuṣpa saṅkāśaṁ hāranūpura śobhitam
ratnakaṅkaṇa keyūraṁ kṛṣṇaṁ vande jagadgurum

I salute Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Universal Teacher, who is decorated with garlands of Atasī flowers, who shines with jewels around his neck, wearing anklets and bracelets.

I salute Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Universal Teacher. His transcendental face, which shines like the full moon, is decorated with curling locks of black hair and beautiful ear-rings.

I salute Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Universal Teacher, whose body is anointed with fragrant sandal-wood paste, who lovingly smiles, who wears on the top of His head the peacock feather and who has four arms.

śrīniketaṁ maheṣvāsaṁ kṛṣṇaṁ vande jagadgurum

I salute Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Universal Teacher, the beloved of the gopikas, whose body is smeared with kuṅkum from the love-play of the gopis; who always lives with Laksmi and who is the life breath of Shiva.

(8)
śrīvatsāṅkaṁ mahoraskaṁ vanamālā virājitam
śaṅkha cakradharaṁ devaṁ kṛṣṇaṁ vande jagadgurum

I salute Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Universal Teacher, who has a broad chest with the śrīvatsā mark, who is decorated with the Vanamālā garland of forest flowers and who holds a conch and a discus.

Phala Sruti (Result of hearing kṛṣṇāṣṭakam)

kṛṣṇāṣṭakamidaṁ puṇyaṁ prātarutthāya yaḥ paṭhet
koṭi janma kṛtaṁ pāpaṁ sadya eva vinaśyati

He who always prays to Lord Kṛṣṇa with these eight verses every morning, his crores (millions) of past sins are destroyed and he receives all Devotion.

iti śrī kṛṣṇāṣṭakam sampūrṇam

Thus Ends the Hymn śrī kṛṣṇāṣṭakam
eight prayers in glorification of Lord Kṛṣṇa
