Govinda Damodara StotramBy Sage BilwamangalaTranslated by P. R. Ramachander[This Stotra has been composed by Sage Bilvamangala, who is alsoknown as Lila Sukha. His greatest work of course is Sri KrishnaKarnamritha. Nothing much is known about the period in whichthis great sage lived. There is a general agreement that hebelongs to South India, visited Dwaraka and later visitedBrindavan and attained Samadhi there. Some people believe thathe was from Andhra Pradesh. Taking in to account the fact thathe is a part of large number of folk tales of Kerala(Bilwamangalathu Swamiyar), his verse from Sri KrishnaKarnamrutha is the first verse of the very popular BalaMukundashtakam which is recited in Kerala and also the fact thathe refers to wearing of tiger claw (a practice in Kerala) by theyoung Krishna in several places, I tend to agree with the schoolof thought that he originally belonged to Kerala. TheGovinda-Damodhara Stotram is the ecstatic outpouring of pureunalloyed Bhakti of this great savant to Lord Krishna. Hepictures all the devotees of Lord Krishna, sharing his ecstasyand so deeply drunk by these names, that they do not talk ofanything else under all circumstances that they are in. One ofthe sloka is from Bhagwatham and few resemble the verses ofMukunda Mala. I am sure that before you complete reading this,you would also be intoxicated by the name of Lord Krishna.]Agre kurunaam atha pandavanam, Dushasane ahwatha vastra kesha, Krishnaa tad akroshad ananya natha, Govinda, damodara Madavethi. 1When in front of Kurus and Pandavas, Dushasana dragged her by her cloths and hair, Angered, Draupadi seeing no other lord, Called Oh Govinda, Oh Damodhara, Oh Madhava.Govinda - He who lifted the earth (Go) Or He who is the chief ofcows.
