Acarya's Writing

Srila Rupa Gosvami

Samaptau mangalacaranam
Auspicious Conclusion


May Lord Krishna’s arms, which
are decorated with armlets glistening
because of striking the splendid
summit of Mount Mandara,
which eclipse the beauty of
the forepart of Airavata Elephant’s trunk,
which break the decoration on
the cheeks of the great demons’ wives
by turning them into widows, and
which remove the sins of the age of Kali,
protect you all.

– Sri Yogeshvara
