yo māḿ svayaḿ-vara upetya vijitya bhū-pān
ninye śva-yūtha-gaḿ ivātma-baliḿ dvipāriḥ
bhrātṝḿś ca me 'pakurutaḥ sva-puraḿ śriyaukas

śrī-mitravindā uvāca — Śrī Mitravindā said; yaḥ — who; mām — me; svayaḿ-vare — during my svayaḿ-vara (the ceremony in which a princess chooses a husband from a number of eligible suitors); upetya — coming forward; vijitya — after defeating; bhū-pān — kings; ninye — took; śva — of dogs; yūtha — into a group; gam — gone; iva — as if; ātma — own; balim — share; dvipa-ariḥ — a lion ("enemy of elephants"); bhrātṝn — brothers; ca — and; me — my; apakurutaḥ — who were insulting Him; sva — to His; puram — capital city; śrī — of the goddess of fortune; okaḥ — the residence; tasya — His; astu — may be; me — for me; anu-bhavam — life after life; ańghri — the feet; avanejanatvam — the status of washing.
Śrī Mitravindā said: At my svayaḿ-vara ceremony He came forward, defeated all the kings present — including my brothers, who dared insult Him — and took me away just as a lion removes his prey from amidst a pack of dogs. Thus Lord Kṛṣṇa, the shelter of the goddess of fortune, brought me to His capital city. May I be allowed to serve Him by washing His feet, life after life.
