I pray Lord Krishna with pretty eyes,
Who wore clothes shining like lightning,
Whose form shone like the clouds of rainy season,
Who wears on his chest garlands of wild flowers,
And who has pair of pretty red feet.

Rathna moulim lasad kundalam gandayo,
Haara keyuragam kankana projwalam,
Kinkini manjula syamalam tham bhaje.

I pray him who wears tiny bells
Who is handsomely black,
Who has a shiny face curly hairs,
Whose cheeks reflect the shine of his jeweled ear studs,
Who wears golden garlands,
And who wears shining bangles.

Phalasruthi

Premadha prathyaham poorusha saspruham,
Vruthatha sundaram karthru viswambharam,
Tasya vasyo harir jayathe sathwaram

He who reads this octet,
Which is dear to God Achyutha,
Which is written with love and devotion,
Which is beautiful because of its poetic skill,
With love and devotion,
Would reach the Lord fast and without fail.

Achuytham kesavam vishnum ,
Harim sathyam janardhanam,
Hamsam narayanam chaiva,
Methan nama ashtakam padeth

One should Read and sing with devotion,
The name of Achyutha, who does not allow us to slip,
The name of Kesava , the lord who killed Kesi,
The name of Vishnu, the principle which is everywhere,
The name Satyam, The ultimate and only truth,
The name Janardhanam, The god of all beings,
The name Hamsam,The lord who is as lofty as a swan,
And the Name of Narayana, the lord in which all souls reside.

Phalasruthi
Trisandhya ya paden nithyam,
Daridryam tasya nasyathi,
Sathru sainya kshayam yaathi,
Dus swapnam sukahdho baveth.

Reading this in the peak of dusk daily,
Poverty will vanish,
Enemies will be vanquished,
And bad dreams will not come our way.

Gangayaam maranam chaiva,
Druda bhakthisthu kesave.
Brhama vidhya prabhodham cha,
Tasmad nithyam paden nara.

Reading this daily will give devotee
Staunch faith in Krishna,
Moksha as if he dies in River Ganga,
Knowledge of that ultimate,
And intelligence to know everything.
