Achyutha Ashtakam

Achyutham Kesavam Rama Narayanam,
Krishna damodharam vasudevam harim,
Sreedharam madhavam gopika vallabham,
Janaki nayakam ramachandram Bhaje 1

Achyutham kesavam sathya bhamadhavam,
Madhavam sreedharam radhika aradhitham,
Indira mandiram chethana sundaram,
Devaki nandanam nandhajam sam bhaje 2

Vishnava jishnave sankhine chakrine,
Rukhmani ragine janaki janaye,
Vallavi vallabha yarchidha yathmane,
Kamsa vidhvamsine vamsine the nama. 3

Krishna govinda he rama narayana,
Sree pathe vasu deva jitha sree nidhe,
Achyuthanantha he madhava adhokshaja,
Drowpadhi rakshaka, pathu maam sarvadha 4

Rakshasa kshobitha seethaya shobitho,
Danda karanya bhoo punyatha karana,
Lakshmanananvitho vanarai ssevitho,
Agasthya sampoojitho raghava pathu maam. 5

Dheenu karishtako anishta krudwesinaam,
Kesiha kamsa hrud vamsika vaadhana,
Poothana nasana sooraja khelano,
Bala gopalaka pathu maam sarvadha 6

Vidhyu dudhyothavath prasphura dwasasam,
Prouda bodhaval prollasad vigraham,
Vanyaya Malaya shobhi thora sthalam,
Lohinthangri dwayam vareejaksham bhaje. 7

Kanchithai kundalai braja maanananam,
Rathna moulim lasad kundalam gandayo,
Haara keyuragam kankana projwalam,
Kinkini manjula syamalam tham bhaje. 8

Phalasruthi

Achyuthashtakam ya patdeth ishtadham,
Premadha prathyaham poorusha saspruham,
Vruthatha sundaram karthru viswambharam,
Tasya vasyo harir jayathe sathwaram
