Sri Krishna Sahasranama Sthothram – Sri Sathvathanthram – Lyrics and meanings – 1-9



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||











Sri Narada speaks “  Oh! Deva, kindly describe thousands of sacred names of Lord Hari, which eradicates severe sins of the worshiper,  provides happiness and wealth, and intense devotion at the lotus feet of Lord Hari, Oh! Suroththama, therefore kindly narrate those sacred names of Lord Hari,  so that would be wonderful to praise him.”


Lord Shiva speaks “Oh! Dhvija, supreme Lord Hari who has the luster of lotus flower, has endless virtues, and it is impossible to describe them all, I have already narrated some of the glorious legends and sacred names of Srivishnu to Goddess Parvathi, later myself and Goddess Parvathi who has beautiful appearance, noticed that supreme Lord who is the preceptor of the Universe/Jagadhguru, not possible to perceive, immersed in deep meditation.  I shall narrate the glories of Jagadheeshvara who is the essence of virtues, and his thousands of sacred names, Oh! Mahabhagavatha, mortal who memorize them would attain all kinds of Siddhis.”

Dhyanam –

 I shall meditate upon supreme Lord Krishna, who is Puranapurusha, he is always surrounded by cows, cowherds and young maidens of cowherds,  illustrious Rishis and Sages, his lotus feet are worshiped by Lord Bhrama, deities, and Ganas, he is served by Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, he has stunningly gorgeous appearance, he has the complexion of freshly formed dark clouds, he is attired in majestic yellow silk garments, he is adorned in marvelous crown which spread the   radiance of sun, he is adorned in Angadha/armlets, and fresh alluring flower garlands, he is adorned in ornaments of precious yellow metal all over the body.
