Govindam

From the hymns of Lord Brahma
(ancient sanskrit prayer)

Govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami

Venum kvanantam aravinda-dalayataksam
Barhavatamsam asitambuda-sundarangam
Kandarpa-koti-kamaniya-visesa-sobham

Govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami

Angani yasya sakalendriya-vrtti-manti
Pasyanti panti kalyanti ciram jaganti
Ananda-cinmaya-sad-ujjvala-vigrahasya

Govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami

Govindam/ translation

I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, who is adept in playing on His flute,
with blooming eyes like lotus petals,
His head decked with peacock feathers,
the figure of beauty tinged with the hue of blue clouds,
His unique loveliness charming millions of cupids.

I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, whose transcendental form is full of bliss, truth, substantiality and is thus full of the most dazzling splendor.
Each of the limbs of that transcendental figure possesses in Himself,
the full-fledged functions of all the organs,
and eternally sees, maintains and manifests the infinite universes,
both spiritual and mundane.
