Sri Krishna Sharanashtaka Sthothram – Lyrics and meanings



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||










I shall take refuge at the lotus feet of supreme Lord Krishna, I have no means of livelihood and always been dependent on others, I have committed various sins and I am in a pathetic state, Oh! Sri Krishna, I shall surrender at your lotus feet,  I have been soaked in the worldly desires and have been indifferent always, Oh! Srikrishna I shall surrender at your lotus feet, I have been always into worldly matters and taking immense pleasures in the association of charming young women, I have been always deceitful and wicked, Oh! Srikrishna I shall surrender at your lotus feet, I have been engaged into all wicked deeds, I have not followed any righteous deeds due to my impure intellect I have been chasing for the accumulation of material pleasures, Oh! Srikrishna I shall surrender at your lotus feet, I have completely forgotten about my Swadharma/duties, responsibilities and rites to be performed, and I have no pure thought to follow the Dharmic rite, I have been ignorant to realize self, Oh! Sri Krishna, I shall surrender at your lotus feet, I have completely drowned in the ocean of worldly existence, I have shattered, disoriented, disturbed, disappointed, and frustrated due to my unruly acts, Oh! Sri Krishna  I shall surrender at your lotus feet, I have been wandering without pure intellect, courage, devotion, and wrapped up in immoral acts, Oh! Sri Krishna, I shall surrender at your lotus feet, I have been immersed in seeking physical pleasure, and hence I have refused to be with the noble-minded, I have been ruled by the sensual pleasures, Oh! Sri Krishna, I shall surrender at your lotus feet, recitation of the above verses, devotion and selfless service at the lotus feet of the preceptor would eradicate all kinds of distress and afflictions.
