By Srila Jayadev Goswami

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of a fish! All glory to You! Easily You acted like a boat and upheld the Vedas above the waters of the cosmic devastation.

kesava dhrta-kurma-sarira jaya jagadisa hare [2]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of a tortoise! All glory to You! You upheld Mount Mandara upon Your giant back and thereafter became beautified by the circular scar it left.

kesava dhrta-sukara-rupa jaya jagadisa hare [3]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of a boar! All glory to You! The earth sits fixed atop the tip of Your tusk like a dark spot upon the moon.

kesava dhrta-narahari-rupa jaya jagadisa hare [4]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed a half-man, half-lion form! All glory to You! You ripped apart the bee-like body of Hiranyakasipu with the amazingly sharp nails of Your beautiful lotus hands.

chhalayasi vikramane balim adbhuta-vamana
pada-nakha-nira-janita-jana-pavana
kesava dhrta-vamana-rupa jaya jagadisa hare [5]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of a dwarf! All glory to You! In the form of an amazing dwarf You deceived Bali Maharaj with Your giant steps and delivered all souls with the water flowing from Your toenails.

snapayasi payasi samita-bhava-tapam
kesava dhrta-bhrgupati-rupa jaya jagadisa hare [6]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of a protector of the sages, Parasuram! All glory to You! You bathed the world with the blood of the ksatriyas and absolved all the world's sins and sorrows.

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of Ramachandra! All glory to You! During the battle at Lanka You distributed to all the directions the most pleasing, crowning offering of the ten heads of Ravan, which were desired by the guardians of the directions.

vahasi vapusi visade vasanam jaladabham
hala-hati-bhiti-milita jamunabham
kesava dhrta-haladhara-rupa jaya jagadisa hare [8]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of Balaram! All glory to You! On Your white body You wear garments the colour of clouds and the River Yamuna when she is frightened by the striking of Your plough.

nindasi yajna-vidher ahaha sruti-jatam
sadaya-hrdaya darsita-pasu-ghatam
kesava dhrta-buddha-sarira jaya jagadisa hare [9]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of Buddha! All glory to You! Your heart filled with compassion, You decry the scriptural injunctions for animal sacrifice.

mlechchha nivaha-nidhane kalayasi karavalam
dhumaketum iva kim api karalam
kesava dhrta-kalki-sarira jaya jagadisa hare [10]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed the form of Kalki! All glory to You! To destroy the wicked You brandish Your stunning, frightening, comet-like sword.

sri-jayadeva-kaver idam uditam udaram
srnu sukha-dam subha-dam bhava-saram
kesava dhrta-dasa-vidha-rupa jaya jagadisa hare [11]

O Hari! O Kesava! O Lord of the universe! You have assumed ten different forms! All glory to You! O readers, listen to this grand, pleasing, auspicious, extraordinary composition by the poet Sri Jayadev.

vedan udharate jaganti vahate bhu-golam udbibhrate
daityam darayate balim chhalayate ksatra-ksayam kurvate
paulastyam jayate halam kalayate karunyam atanvate
mlechchhan murchchhayate dasakrti-krte krsnaya tubhyam namah [12]

I offer my obeisance unto Sri Krsna, who assumes ten forms and rescues the Vedas, upholds Mandara Mountain, uplifts the earth, rips apart demons, deceives Bali Maharaj, kills the ksatriyas, conquers Ravan, carries a plough, shows compassion, and annihilates the wicked.

The Devotee and the Barber
How do you know there is no God? You never went to God. You never go to Krishna's devotee, you never go to Krishna's temple. Go and then you can understand whether Krishna exists or not..

 

      

Everything is for Krishna, and you can turn your house into a temple.
