Govardhana Puja Festival, October 24-26, 2014

namaste girirajaya
sri govardhana namine
ashesha klesha nashaya
paramananda dayine

I offer my respectful obeisances unto the king of all hills, Govardhana Hill (the source of enjoyment for the senses, land, and cows). He is a servant of Krsna and is Krsna Himself. He puts an end to unlimited sufferings and bestows the supreme bliss.

sthala jala tala shashpair bhuruhach-chayaya cha
prati padam anukalam hanta samvardhayan gah
tri jagati nija gotram sarthakam khyapayan me
nija nikata nivasa dehi govardhana tvam

O Govardhan! Please grant me residence near your side. You are worshiping Shri Radha and Krishna with your nice spacious meadows, ponds, streams and waterfalls, forests, fresh grass, and shade trees; you are nourishing Shri Krishna´s beloved cows whose numbers are thus increasing at every moment. Your very name Govardhan (gah means cows, and vardhayati means to nourish and increase) is successful and renowned throughout the three worlds, If I can reside near you, I will also be able to receive the see my desired worshipful Lord Shri Krishna, who comes to you when He brings His cows out to graze.

From Shri Govardhana-Vasa-Prarthana-Dashakam (Ten Prayers asking for residence near the Mountain of Govardhan by Shrila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami)
