Sri nArAyaNa vAhana - mukhAri - aTa -
In this song Narayana Teerdha describes the extra-ordinary merits of
Garutmanta, the divine eagle, serving as vehicle for Sri Maha Vishnu.

Garutmanta brought nectar-pot from heaven. He is like chariot-flag for Sri Mahavishnu. He is destroyer of enemies of Devatas. The sun and the moon admire him. He is very mighty. He is the support for all the living beings and he is the embodiment of Vedas. He has very auspicious appearence and is endowed with many powers.
I meditate upon him.

rAma krishNa gOvindEti - bhairavi - Adi
Bhudevi, Brahma, Indra, Sanaka and other sages approach Sriman Narayana to request him to descend on the earth to save the people from the attrocities
of demon Kamsa and other wicked people. In this song Sanaka and others sing
about the infinite powers inlaid in the names of Rama, Krishna and Govinda.

|| rAma krishNa gOvindEti nAma samprayOgE ||
|| Chant the sacred names Rama, Krishna and Govinda.

|| Immersing in the three holy names bestows every benifit of bathing in
holy Prayaga the confluence of Ganga, Yamuna and Sarasvati.

Chanting these names is not restricted to a particular time, place or direction. It is simple and benificial. It showers ocean-like grace of
Rama is Ganga, Krishna is Yamuna and Govinda is Sarasvati. The combination of these names is the most precious Mantra.

Minds of supreme yogis float in these three names like divine swans.
Words of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara are like waves at Prayaga.
These names bestow not only temporal benifits but also transcendental
boons like salvation.

Sama,Yajur, Rig and Atharvana vedas derived their prowess from these names only.They assuage agony and bestow peace of mind.
Rituals like bath, Sandhya, japa, fire worship and sacred ablutions are not required to chant these names. They bestow perpetual bliss which neither diminishes nor vanishes.
Meditating the three names purifies mind . Singing their glory is vocal penance. Depicting their glory through dance is penance by body.
Yaga, yoga, attachment, enjoyment, yajna and other practices are not required
for those who immerse in the glory of trinity. Salvation is assured through devotion, knowledge and realisation.
Supreme Conciousness (Para Brahman) can be attained by these names. They eradicate worldly fears like birth, life and death.
Immersing in the glory of trinity dispels the worst sins just as the effulgent Sun dispels pitch darkness. Narayana Teerdha considers that the purifying power of the three names is the king of piligrimages.

Brahma and other Devatas sing the glory of the divine child born to

Oh Lord, you are the divine child of Devaki and Vasudeva , shining
with Koustubha gem. You are wielding conch, discus, mace, and lotus.
Your sword is Nandaka. Your bow is Sarjna. Your silk yellow costume,
ear-hangings and crown are majestic. You are embodiment of auspiciousness.
You are lord of Yadavas. Please bless us with devotional mind, speech and wisdom.
