GOVINDÁSHTAKAM- श्रीगोविन्दाष्टकं

सत्यं ज्ञानमनन्तं नित्यमनाकाशं परमाकाशं

Worship Govinda who is supreme bliss, real, knowledge, infinite, and eternal, who is free from Ákásha (and other upádhis), who is the highest light, who was eager as a child to crawl in the cow-pen, who is really free from difficulties, but who appears to be in difficulties (or who is the abode of máyá, cause of all), who appears manifold due to máyá, who appears as the world, who is the Lord of the earth and shri, and who has no Lord to control him. (1)
