அன்றிவ்வுலகமளந்தாய்! அடிபோற்றி
சென்றங்குத் தென்னிலங்கை செற்றாய்! திறல் போற்றி
பொன்றச்சகடமுடைத்தாய்! புகழ் போற்றி
கன்று குணிலாவெறிந்தாய்! கழல் போற்றி
குன்று குடையாவெடுத்தாய்! குணம் போற்றி
வென்று பகை கெடுக்கும் நின் கையில் வேல் போற்றி
என்றென்று உன் சேவகமே ஏத்திப் பறைகொள்வான்
இன்றுயாம் வந்தோம்; இரங்கேலோர் எம்பாவாய்

Once, you took the avatar of Vamana, measured all the worlds with your feet. May we sing praises of your lotus feet for ages

you then took the avatar of Lord Rama and killed Ravana, the king og Lanka . May we sing praises of your courage for ages

In this Krishna avatat, when you were an infant, You killed the demon,sagadan who came in the form of a wheel with your tiny feet.May we sing praises of your lotus feet for ages

After you grew up a little older, you killed the two demons Vathsasuran,  who took the form of an ogre and kabithasuran who took the form of a tree. You swirled the calf as a tool to cut down the tree there by killing both the demons at the same time. May we sing praises about your courage and skills for ages

You protected the entire cow herd clan by bringing everyone under one single roof  by holding the Govardhan hill as an umbrella using your tiny little finger. May we sing praises of your merciful qualities for ages

The spear that you have in your hand to kill all your enemies, May we sing praises of it for ages

We, the Gopikas have taken this vow to sing glory about you in this month of margahzhi and seek your blessings, Krishna. Please show mercy on us too and bless us.  Also this can be taken as a request from Gopika to Krishna to Gift them the drums  so they can  use them as a percussion instrument to accompany their singing.

Just like we have the 6 tastes of food(sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent), this song is equated to 6 incidents to immerse in the bliss of krishna and taste this food for our souls


P.S. It is out of love for Krishna that i have attempted this translation. A million apologies to all the scholars and the learned if i have committed any mistake(s) .
