The beautiful composition Sri Nand Nandanastakam is dedicated to Lord Krishna is an embodiment of beauty, love, compassion and duty.

Ashtakam contains eight verses in praise of Lord. Recitation of this ashtkam is considered very auspicious during adhik mass or purshottam month. Listening and chanting of Lords’s name can pave your way to liberation. And I must say that this strot of Lord Krishna makes you fall in love with him.

Let’s tread the path of devotion by reading Sri Nand Nandanastakam lyrics in English and Sanskrit.

TRANSLATION

I bow down to Son of Nand, whose face is ethereal, and he who wears beautiful gold earrings, and whose body is smeared with sandalwood. 

I bow down to Son of Nand, whose beautiful eyes is beyond comparison with fully bloomed lotus, whose head is embellished with peacock feathers and who enthrall millions of kamadev.

I bow down to son of Nand, who hold flute in his lotus hands, whose stride beats the gate of a fervent elephant, and whose limbs are covered in beautiful yellow attire.

I bow down to son of Nand, whose bending posture is magnificently graceful, whose luminous nails is far more radiant than moon, and who adorns himself with invaluable gemstones and jewelry.

I bow down to son of Nand, whose body emanates extremely enchanting fragrance, and whose all embracing chest is embellished with kausthubh mani and the srivatsa sign.

I bow down to son of Nand, The beloved of vrindavan who performs pristine pastimes,and beautified with amusing clothes which suits his pastimes activities, and who crushed the pride of Indra(Lord of devas)

I bow down to son of Nand, who eternally amuses vraja gopikas and who bestows all kinds of happiness to the world.

Whoever consistently recite Sri Nand Nandanastakam would easily get sailed away from the unconquerable sea of materiality and attain the shelter at the lotus feet of Lord Krishna.
