Context and Meaning 

"pralaya-payodhijale” is the first of the Gita Govinda Ashtapadis. It appears just after the poet makes a short introduction, and is a hymn offered to the ten incarnations of Vishnu. Starting from the Matsya-avatara, each verse extols the greatness of one incarnation. The final verse then describes all of these avataras as belonging to Krishna, and requests him to listen to the poet’s following words.


Pralaya-payodhi-jale dhruta vanasi vedam 
Vihita-vahitra-charitramakhedam 
Keshava dhruta-meena-sarira jaya jagadisa hare 1

[Victory to Keshava, the lord of the Universe,
Who assumed the form of a fish,
And gave protection like a boat to Vedas,
Which were immersed in the turbulent sea of deluge.]

Kshitirathi vipulatare tisthtati tava prushte 
Dharani-dharana-kina-chakra-garishte ,
Keshava dhruta-kachapa-sarira jaya jagadisa hare 2

[Victory to Keshava , the lord of the Universe,
Who assumed the form of a tortoise,
And made the great mountain rest on his back,
And allowed it to churn the ocean like a wheel.]

Vasati dasana-sikhare dharani thava lagna 
Sasini kalanka-kaleva nimagna 
Keshava dhruta-sukara-rupa jaya jagadisa hare 3

[Victory to Keshava , the lord of the Universe,
Who assumed the form of a boar,
On whose tusks rested the earth,
Which was drowned and appeared.
Like the shadow on the moon.]

Thava kara-kamala-vare nakha madbhuta-srngam 
Dalita-hiranyakasipu-thanu-bhrngam 
Keshava dhruta-narahari-rupa jaya jagadisa hare 4

[Victory to Keshava , the lord of Universe,
Who assumed the form of a man lion,
Whose nails of his lotus like hand,
Were made wonderful weapons,
And Crushed Hiranyakasipu like a wasp.]

Chalayasi vikramane balimadbhuta-vamana 
Pada-nakha-nira-janita-jana-pavana 
Keshava dhruta-vamana-rupa jaya jagadisa hare 5 

[Victory to Keshava , the lord of the Universe,
Who assumed the form of a dwarf Brahmin,
Who by his massive steps deceived Mahabali,
And the water* emanating from the nail of whose feet,
Made all living beings holy and divine.
* River Ganga is believed to have originated from Vishnu's feet.]

Snapayasi payasi samita-bhava-tapam 
Keshava dhruta-bhrgupati-rupa jaya jagadisa hare 6

Who assumed the form of Parasurama,
Who bathed the earth with blood of Kshatriyas,
Who washed away the sins of the world,

Dasa-mukha-mauli-balim ramaniyam 
Keshava dhruta-rama-sarira jaya jagadisa hare 7

Keshava dhruta-haladhara-rupa jaya jagadisa hare 8

Who assumed the form of Balarama,
Who wore cloths of colour of The River,
Yamuna over his white body and made ,
The river fear his weapon of the plough.]

Nindasi yajna-vidher ahaha shruti-jatam 
Sadaya-hrdaya darsita-pasu-ghatham 
Keshava dhruta-buddha-sarira jaya jagadisa hare 9 

[Victory to Keshava , the lord of the Universe,
Who assumed the form of Buddha,
Who found fault with fire sacrifices,
In which poor animals were sacrificed,
As prescribed in the Vedas due to his compassionate heart.]

Dhumaketum iva kim api karalam 
Keshava dhruta-kalki-sarira jaya jagadisa hare 10

Who would appear like a blazing comet,
Holding a terrifying sword and kill,
