Ashtakam is a form of Indian poetry and prayer which included eight stanzas, each of four lines following the rhyming scheme a-a-a-a. While sometimes the ashtakam can end abruptly after eight stanzas, however many a times, poets prefer ending it with a couplet that finalizes the ashtakam and concludes it properly in two lines. The Krishna Ashtakam is a hymn for Lord Krishna, describing him with each stanza and offering him our salutations. Method of Reciting Krishna Ashtakam In order to receive the best results, one should follow the proper rituals before reciting the krishnashtakam. First, after waking up early and completing your morning rituals, take a bath, and then clean your place of worship for your daily puja. Chanting the krishnashtakam in Brahma Muhurta between 4 am to 6 am is considered auspicious and said to procure better results.

Salutations to the sea like Lord Krishna , Who decorates his head with peacock feathers, Who has the sweet sounding flute in his hand, And who is the music of the ocean of love. Manoja garva mochanam vishala lola lochanam, Vidhootha gopa sochanam namami padma lochanam, Kararavindha bhoodaram smithavaloka sundraram, Mahendra mana daranam, Namami Krishna varanam.
Salutations to the elephant like Lord Krishna , Who lifted the mountain by his lotus soft hands, Who has a pretty gaze and smile, And who killed the pride of the great Indra. Kadhambha soonu kundalam sucharu ganda mandalam, Vrajanganaika vallabham namami Krishna durlabham. Yasodhata samodhaya sagopaya sananandaya, Yutham sukhaika dayakam namami gopa nayakam. Salutations to the chief of Gopas, Who grants supreme bliss, To Yasodha, gopas and Nanda , And who is the giver of pleasures.
Sadhaiva pada pankajam madheeya manase nijam, Dadanamuthamalakam , namami Nanda balakam, Samastha dosha soshanam, samastha loka poshanam, Samastha gopa manasam, Namami nanda lalasam.
Salutations to Him who enthralls Nanda, Who diminishes bad effects of all sins, Who takes care of the entire world. Bhoovo bharavatharakam bhavabdi karma dharakam, Yasomathee kisorakam, namami chitha chorakam. Drugantha kantha banginam, sada sadala sanginam, Dine dine navam navam namami nanda sambhavam. I bow to the son of King Nanda, Who has a pair of pretty shining eyes, Who is followed by bees wherever he goes, And who is new and newer to his devotees, Today and everyday.
Gunakaram sukhakaram krupakaram krupaparam, Suradwihannikarthanam, namami gopa nandanam. Naveenagopa naagaram naveena keli lampatam, Namami megha sundram thathith prabhalasathpatam. I salute the handsome one who is the colour of the cloud, Who wears yellow coloured silk resembling lightning, Who appears as a new Gopa every time he is seen, And who is interested in new antics every time.
Samastha gopa nandanam, hrudambujaika modhanam, Namami kunja madhyagam, prasanna bhanu shobhanam. Nikamakamadhayakam drugantha charu sayakam, Rasalavenu gayakam, namami kunja nayakam. I salute Krishna, who is the leader of lads of vrija, Who plays soulful music using his flute, Who grants pleasures even though he does not want them, And whose glances are like defenseless arrows. Vidagdha gopikaa mano manogna thalpasayinam, Namami kunja kanane pravrudha vahni payinam.
Kisorakanthi ranchitham, druganjanam sushobitham, Gajendra moksa karinam,Namami sri viharinam. I salute Him who is with the goddess of wealth, Who was the cause of salvation of Gajendra, Who is surrounded by divine glow of youth, And who shines in all directions. Yadha thadha yadha thadha thadiva krushna sathkadha, Maya sadaiva geeyathaam thadha krupa vidheeyathaam. Pramanikashtakadwayam japathyadheethya ya pumaan, Bhaveth sa nanda nandane bhave bhave subhakthiman.
That great man who sings this double octet. Would be born with devotion to Krishna, In all his births. Who shines in garlands and anklets that he wears. And who has a bangle made of jewels in his right hand. Who has the sweet scent of mandara flowers, Who has pretty smile and four arms, And who decorates is hair with peacock feathers. Who is embraced by the two busts of Gopis , Whose chest has the marks of saffron, Who lives with Lakshmi and has a big bow.
Phala Sruti 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.
But on referring the complete works of Shankara, I find that this is the only one composed by Adhi Shankara. The last stanza clearly indicates that it was composed so that his mother would get salvation. Sriyaslishto Vishnu sthira chara gurur veda vishayo, Dhiyaam sakshee shudho harira sura hanthabja nayana, Gadhee Shankhee Chakreevimala vana mali sthira ruchi, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya.
Yatha sarvam jatham viyadhanila mukhyam jagadhidham, Sthithou nissesham yovathi nija sukhamsena madhuhaa, Laye sarvam swasmin harathi kalayaa yasthu savibhu, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya.
Asoonayamyadhou yani Niyama mukhyai sookaranai, Nirudhyedham chitham hrudi vilaya maneeya sakalam, Yameedyam pasyanthi pravaramathayo mayi namasou, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya. Prithvyam thishtan yo yamayathi maheem Vedanadharam, Yamithyadhou Vedo vadathi jagathameesamamalam, Niyantharam dhyeyam muni sura nrunaam moksha damasou, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya. Mahendradhi devo jayathi dithi janyasya balatho, Na kasya swathanthryam kwachidhapi kruthow yath kruthi mruthe, Kavithwa derggavam pariharathi yosou vijayina, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya.
Vinaa yasya dhyaanam vrajathi pasuthaam sookhara mukhaam, Vinaa yasya jnanam jani mruthi bhayam yathi janathaa, Vinaa yasya smruthya krumi satha janim yathi sa vibhu, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya. Narraa thangothanga sarani sarano branthi harano, Ghana shyamo vaamo Vruja sisu vayasyo, Arjuna sakha, Swayambur bhoothaanam janaka uchithachara sukhadha, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya.
Yadha dharma glanirbhavathi jagathaam kshobha karana, Thadhaa loka swami prakatitha vapu sethu drugaja, Sathaam dathaa swacho nisamsa guna geetho vrujapathi, Saranyo lokeso mama bhavathu krushnokshi vishaya. Ithi harir akhilaathma aaradhitha sankarena, Sruthi visadha gunosou mathru mokashartha madhya, Yathi vara nikate Sri yuktha Aavirbhabhoova, Swagunavrutha udhaara sankha chakrabhja hastha.
