hṛṣīkeśa namas te 'stu

munaye mauna-śīline


avyākṛta-vihārāyato Him whose glories are unfathomable; sarva-vyākṛta — the creation and manifestation of all things; siddhayeto Him who can be understood as existent on the basis of; hṛṣīka-īśaO motivator of the senses; namaḥ — obeisances; te — unto You, astu — let there be; munayeto the silent; mauna-śīlineto Him who acts in silence.


O Lord Hṛṣīkeśa, master of the senses, please let us offer our obeisances unto You, whose pastimes are inconceivably glorious. Your existence can be inferred from the necessity for a creator and revealer of all cosmic manifestations. But although Your devotees can understand You in this way, to the nondevotees You remain silent, absorbed in self-satisfaction.
