Damodarastakam in Sanskrit
Damodarastakam is a verse from the Srimad-Bhagavatam that describes Krishna’s early childhood pastimes. In this verse, Krishna is described as running from His mother when She tried to chastise Him for stealing butter. It’s interesting to note that even at a very young age, Krishna had been known to steal butter. During the month of Kartika, devotees around the world offer ghee lamps or candles to Krishna, and sing this prayer each day. Each verse in the poem describes various qualities of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who appears as a small child and purifies Himself by being captured by His devotees’ love.
To the Supreme Lord, whose form is the embodiment of eternal existence, knowledge, and bliss, whose shark-shaped earrings are swinging to and fro, who is beautifully shining in the divine realm of Gokula, who [due to the offense of breaking the pot of yogurt that His mother was churning into butter and then stealing the butter that was kept hanging from a swing] is quickly running from the wooden grinding mortar in fear of mother Yanoda, but who has been caught from behind by her who ran after Him with greater speed—to that Supreme Lord, Damodara, I offer my humble obeisances.
