santv asyaiva vibhūtayo 'mara-gaṇāḥ sarvārtha-kāma-pradā 
   gaurīśāna-viriñci-bhāskara-mukhāḥ sarve hi sarveśvarāḥ
kintu smera-mukhāmbujo vrajavadhū-vṛndena vṛndāvane 
   svacchandaṃ viharan mamāstu paramānandāya nandātmajaḥ

santu—may be; asya—of Him; eva—certainly; vibhūtayaḥ—potencies; amara—of demigods; gaṇāḥ—multitudes; sarva—all; artha—requests; kāma—and desires; padāḥ—fulfilling; gaurīśāna—Lord Śiva; viriñci—Lord Brahmā; bhāskara—the sun-god, Sūrya; mukhāḥ—beginning with; sarve—all; hi—indeed; sarva-iśvarāḥ—the controllers of universal affairs; vraja-vadhū—of the vraja-gopīs; vṛndena—with the multitudes; vṛndāvane—in Vṛndāvana; svacchandam—independently; viharan—performing pastimes; mama—my; astu—may there be; parama—transcendental; ānandāya—for the bliss; nanda—of Nanda Mahārāja; ātmajaḥ—the transcendental son.

Lord Śiva, Lord Brahmā, Sūrya, and other demigods who grant benedictions and control universal affairs are all the potencies of that Supreme Person, who is nevertheless Nanda Mahārāja's smiling lotus-faced son. May that Supreme Lord, who independently performs pastimes with the gopīs in the forest of Vṛndāvana, grant to me transcendental bliss.
