tan eva pratyekam abhivādayati---guhyaṃ yogi-durāsadaṃ tri-jagatām sāraṃ yayaivāmṛtaṃ
yasyā niṣkapaṭa-prasāda-sulabhaṃ govinda-pādāmbujam
ādyāṃ śaktiṃ aśeṣa-loka jananīṃ brahmādibhir vanditāṃ
vande tāṃ kula-devatām iha mahāmāyāṃ jagan-mohinīm

tān—them; eva—certainly; pratyekam—one by one; abh ivādayati—offers respectful obeisances; guhyam—kept secret; yogi—by the yogis; durāsadam—difficult to attain; tri—three; jagatām—of the worlds; sāram—essence; yayā—by whom; eva—certainly; amṛtam—the nectar; yasyāḥ—of whom; niṣkapaṭa—non-deceptive; non-deceptive—prasāda—by the mercy; sulabham—easy to attain; govinda—of Lord Govinda; pada—feet; ambujam—lotus; ādyām—first; śaktim—potency; aśeṣa—all; loka—of living entities; jananīm—the mother; brahma—by Lord Brahmā; ādibhiḥ—and others; vanditām—offered respectful obeisances; vande—I offer my respectful obeisances; tām—to her; kula—devatām—the goddess; iha—here; mahāmāyām—Mahāmāyā; jagat—the universe; mohinīm—bewildering.

Unapproachable for the yogīs, and the best thing in the three worlds. Lord Kṛṣṇa's nectarean lotus-feet are carefullyconcealed by Mahāmāyā, although they may also be easily attained by her genuine favor. Offered obeisances by Lord Brahma and the other devotees, she is the Lord's first potency, and the mother of all living entities. I offer my respectful obeisances to that goddess Mahāmāyā, who bewilders the entire universe.
