Krishna's forehead is adorned with 'Kasturi tilakam'(mark with musk). His chest is embellished with Koustubha gem. A shining pearl is on the tip of his nose. There is flute in his hands and a bracelet shines on his wrist. His whole body is smeared with pure sandalwood paste. His neck is adorned with a garland of pearls. He is surrounded by beautiful Gopikas. Victory to Sri krishna who is the diadem of Yadu clan.
Divine child Krishna keeps beautifully his lotus-like foot in his lotus-like mouth with his lotus-like hands.He reclines on banyan leaf, floating on ocean. I heartily meditate upon child Mukunda the bestower of salvation.
