O Madana Gopala, please place Your lotus feet, which are marked with a thunderbolt, lotus, conch shell, water pot, and fish, which eclipse
all splendors, and which with soft soles have conquered Vrndavana forest, in my heart. Please protect me, for I am now Your home.

With every step splendid garlands of the cooling moonlight of Your toenail-moons and the words of Your talkative anklets bring happiness to
the path of my ears, eyes, and breath. O Madana Gopala, please protect me, for I am now Your home.

O Madana Gopala, as You plunge me in the sweetness of the glittering golden earrings at Your cheeks, in the tilt of Your jeweled crown, and
in the handsomeness of Your expertly moving restless eyes, please protect me, for I am now Your home.

You place a flute on the red of Your lips, which are worshipped by the splendor of Your smile and decorated with the effulgence of teeth
that defeat the splendour of rubies. O Madana Gopala, whose pastimes cannot be understood by the people, please protect me, for I am
now Your home.

You are splendid with golden earrings, many necklaces and garlands, dancing anklets and bracelets, and many other jewel ornaments, which
are themselves decorated by the splendour of Your form. O Madana Gopala, please protect me, for I am now Your home.

O Madana Gopala, with Your merciful glances, which are arbors of millions of celestial desire-trees, with the new blossoms of the splendor of
Your face, which eclipses millions of moons, and with the kandala flowers of Your hands, which have nails to attack millions of Kamadevas,
please protect me, for I am now Your home.

O Madana Gopala, who appeared in a humanlike form and was served by Siva and all the demigods, O merciful one, who showed the Earth
eternal spiritual love, please protect me, for I am now Your home. 

taraṇijā-tīra-bhuvi taraṇi-kara-vāraka-

madana-gopāla! nija-sadanam anu rakṣa mām

On the Yamuna's shore is a shady kadamba grove and a glorious jewel palace where You eternally play with Radha and Lalita. O Madana
Gopala, please protect me, for I am now Your home.
