Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 36

Natāḥ sma te nātha sadāṅghri-paṅkajaṁ
Viriñca-vairiñcya-surendra-vanditam
Parāyaṇaṁ kṣema mihecchatāṁ paraṁ
Na yatra kālaḥ prabhavet paraḥ prabhuḥ

Oh Lord! Even the shadow of that eternal time, which swallows Brahma and all other Gods, does not fall upon You! The great Lord Brahma, the eminent sages Sanaka, Sananda and others, and all the Celestials beginning from Indra, offer obeisance to Your lotus feet! In this world, to all those who seek welfare, Your feet are the sole shelter. I offer obeisance to those holy feet!

Bhavāya nas tvaṁ bhava viśva-bhāvana Tvam eva mātātha suhṛt-patiḥ pitā
Tvaṁ sad-gurur naḥ paramaṁ ca daivataṁ Yasyānuvṛttyā kṛtino babhūvima

O Lord who creates this universe! Please cause auspiciousness to me. To us, You are the mother, father, friend, relative, King, Sadguru and even the Supreme Lord. You are everything. By serving You we have attained everything.
Aha! By serving You, we have obtained a protector (sa-nātha). We are seeing that beautiful auspicious face of Yours which is blossoming with Your loving tender smile and which causes us great joy’.

from Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 36(Translations of Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji’s daily explanation of Srimad Bhagavatam on ETV from December 2015 onwards are compiled by Parimala Eshwarla)
