 कृष्णाष्टकम्

वसुदेव-सुतं देवं कंस-चाणूर-मर्दनम्

देवकी-परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

अतसीपुष्पसङ्काशं हार-नूपुर-शोभितम्

रत्न-कङ्कण-केयूरम कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

कुटिलालक-संयुक्तं पूर्णचंद्र-निभाननम्

विलसत्-कुण्ड्लधरं कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

मंदारगन्ध-संयुक्तं चारुहासं चतुर्भुजं

बर्हि-पिच्छावचूडाङ्गं कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

उत्फुल्लपद्म-पत्राक्षं नीलजीमूत-सन्निभम्

याद्वानां शिरोरत्नं कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

रुक्मिणीकेली -संयुक्तं पीताम्बर-सुशोभितम्

अवाप्त-तुलसीगंधम कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

गोपिकानां कुचद्वन्द्व-कुन्कुमाङ्कित-वक्षसम्

श्रीनिकेतं महेष्वासं कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

श्रीवत्साड़्कं महोरस्कं वनमाला-विराजितम्

शङ्कचक्र-धरं देवं कृष्णं वन्दे जगद् गुरुम् ||

कृष्णाष्टकं-इदं पुण्यं प्रातरुत्थाय यः पठेत्

कोटिजन्म-कृतं पापं स्मरणेन विनश्यति ||
