Prayers to Lord Mukunda, having discuss, mace, conch and lotus in His hands, seated in a throne decked with garlands of pearls in the Ocean of Milk, the shore of which is made up of precious stones, whose body is adorned with transparent pearls, feeling the ecstasy of the pure white clouds above sprinkling the nectar of bliss, to cleanse us of our sins.

I prostrate before the Lord Viṣṇu who exist in all the three worlds, who has earth as feet, sky as navel, air as breath, moon and sun as eyes, directions as ears, the world of gods as head, fire as mouth, ocean as stomach, in whose abdomen the entire universe comprising of gods, men, birds, animals, serpents, demigods, demons, etc joyously make their living.

vande viṣṇuṁ bhavabhayaharaṁ sarvalokaika-nātham||
I worship Lord Viṣṇu, the embodiment of Peace, whose couch and canopy is thousand headed Śeṣa, from whose navel blossoms forth a lotus flower (from which the lord of creation Brahmā is born), who is the supporter of the universe, who is all pervading in ākāśa, the ether or atmosphere, whose complexion resembles that of clouds (rain bearing clouds are dark in colour), who pervades the heart of His consort Śrī Lakṣmī, who is lotus eyed, who is sought by yogi-s through meditation, one who is capable of eradicating the dreadfulness of transmigrations (transmigration is full of fear, miseries and pains) and the unparalleled Lord of the universe.
मेघश्यामं पीतकौशेयवासं श्रीवत्साङकं कौस्तुभोद्भासिताङगं।

I bow down before the Lord of the universe Viṣṇu, who appears like dark clouds, who is adorned with yellow silk clothing, having a mole by name Śrīvatsa (Śrīvatsa has different interpretations. It is said to be a cluster of hair in His chest, which is an indication of His Supremacy and auspiciousness. There is also reference which says that it is the Abode of His consort Śrī Lakṣmī. It also means a mark on His chest. According to ancient tradition, sage Bhṛgu struck Lord Viṣṇu with his feet on the chest of the Lord as the Lord had not shown due respect to the sage. The Lord is said to carry this mark as a mark of repentance and this mark is known as Śrīvatsa), His body radiating with kaustubha jewel (a celebrated jewel obtained with thirteen other precious things at the churning of the ocean and suspended on the chest Viṣṇu), with wide eyes like lotus flowers and surrounded by men of moral excellence (it is said that virtuousness is the primary duty of a man and Viṣṇu is the Lord of virtuousness).

I prostrate before Lord Viṣṇu, who is the cause of creation, the supporter of the universe, and who exists in different forms. This verse refers to His acts of creation and sustenance. This also makes a subtle reference to His omnipresent nature.

I surrender unto Lord Kṛṣṇa, who is seated in a golden throne with Rukmiṇī and Satyabhāmā (consorts of Kṛṣṇa), under the shadow of Pārijāta tree (one of the five trees of Heaven, produced at the churning of the ocean and taken possession of by Indra from whom it was afterwards taken by Kṛṣṇa.
