Sri Maha Vishnu Stotrams – Lyrics in Hindi:
कदाचि त्कालिन्दी तटविपिनसङ्गीतकपरो
मुदा गोपीनारी वदनकमलास्वादमधुपः
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 1 ॥
भुजे सव्ये वेणुं शिरसि शिखिपिंछं कटितटे
दुकूलं नेत्रान्ते सहचर कटाक्षं विदधते
सदा श्रीमद्बृन्दा वनवसतिलीलापरिचयो
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 2 ॥
महाम्भोधेस्तीरे कनकरुचिरे नीलशिखरे
वसन्प्रासादान्त -स्सहजबलभद्रेण बलिना
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 3 ॥
सुरेन्द्रै राराध्यः श्रुतिगणशिखागीतचरितो
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 4 ॥
रथारूढो गच्छ न्पथि मिलङतभूदेवपटलैः
स्तुतिप्रादुर्भावं प्रतिपद मुपाकर्ण्य सदयः
दयासिन्धु र्भानु स्सकलजगता सिन्धुसुतया
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 5 ॥
निवासी नीलाद्रौ निहितचरणोनन्तशिरसि
रसानन्दो राधा सरसवपुरालिङ्गनसुखो
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 6 ॥
न वै प्रार्थ्यं राज्यं न च कनकितां भोगविभवं
न याचे2 हं रम्यां निखिलजनकाम्यां वरवधूं
सदा काले काले प्रमथपतिना चीतचरितो
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 7 ॥
हर त्वं संसारं द्रुततर मसारं सुरपते
हर त्वं पापानां वितति मपरां यादवपते
अहो दीनानाथं निहित मचलं निश्चितपदं
जगन्नाथः स्वामी नयनपथगामी भवतु मे ॥ 8 ॥
Sri Jagannatha Ashtakam Meaning:
Sometimes in great happiness Lord Jagannatha, with His flute, makes a loud concert in the groves on the banks of the Yamuna. He is like a bumblebee who tastes the beautiful lotus-like faces of the cowherd damsels of Vraja, and His lotus feet are worshiped by great personalities such as Lakshmi, Siva, Brahma, Indra and Ganesa. May that Jagannatha Swami be the object of my vision.
In His left hand Lord Jagannatha holds a flute. On His head He wears the feathers of peacocks and on His hips He wears fine yellow silken cloth. Out of the corners of His eyes He bestows sidelong glances upon His loving devotees and He always reveals Himself through His pastimes in His divine abode of Vrindavana. May that Jagannatha Swami be the object of my vision.
Residing on the shore of the great ocean, within a large palace situated upon the crest of the brilliant, golden Nilacala Hill, along with His powerful brother Bala-bhadra, and in the middle of Them His sister Subhadra, Lord Jagannatha bestows the opportunity for devotional service upon all godly souls. May that Jagannatha Swami be the object of my vision.
Lord Jagannatha is an ocean of mercy and He is beautiful like a row of blackish rain clouds. He is the storehouse of bliss for Lakshmi and Saraswati, and His face is like a spotless full-blown lotus. He is worshiped by the best of demigods and sages, and His glories are sung by the Upanishads. May that Jagannatha Swami be the object of my vision.
When Lord Jagannatha is on His Ratha-yatra cart and is moving along the road, at every step there is a loud presentation of prayers and songs chanted by large assemblies of brahmanas. Hearing their hymns Lord Jagannatha is very favorably disposed towards them. He is the ocean of mercy and the true friend of all the worlds. May that Jagannatha Swami, along with His consort Lakshmi, who was born from the ocean of nectar, be the object of my vision.
He is the ornament of the head of Lord Brahma and His eyes are like the full-blown petals of the lotus. He resides on the Nilacala Hill, and His lotus feet are placed on the heads of Ananta Deva. Lord Jagannatha is overwhelmed by the mellow of love and He becomes joyful in the embracing of the body of Sri Radharani, which is like a cool pond. May that Jagannatha Swami be the object of my vision.
I do not pray for a kingdom, nor for gold, rubies, and wealth. I do not ask for an excellent and beautiful wife as desired by all men. I simply pray that Jagannatha Swami, whose glories are always sung by Lord Siva, be the constant object of my vision.
O Lord of the demigods, please quickly remove this useless material existence I am undergoing. O Lord of the Yadus, please destroy this vast ocean of sins which has no shore. Alas, this is certain that Lord Jagannatha’s lotus feet are bestowed upon those who feel themselves fallen and have no shelter in this world but Him. May that Jagannatha Swami be the object of my vision.
The self-retrained, virtuous soul who recites these eight verses glorifying Lord Jagannatha becomes cleansed of all sins and duly proceeds to Lord Visnu’s abode.
Thus ends the eight stanza hymn Jagannathastakam composed by srimat saṅkaracarya
