Who is decorated by garlands of forest flowers,
And who holds the conch and the holy wheel.

Krishnashtakamidham punyam,
Prathar uthaya ya padeth,
Koti Janma krutham papam,
Smaranath thasya nasyathi.

If one reads this as soon as he awakes in the morning,
This divine octet of Lord Krishna without fail,
Sins committed in billions of lives,
Would be destroyed, if one thinks about him.
