Lotus Feet of Lord Krishna

Lotus Feet of Lord Krishna

In Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna Says 
18.66 सर्व-धर्मान्-परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज 
          अहं त्वां सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्श्ययिष्यामि मा शुचः 

Lord Krishna emphasizes on "Maamekam Saranam Vraja". The Moolavar deities in many temples have their left hand pointing to His Lotus feet. In Some temples the Moolavar has these words Inscribed on their left palm. 

I came across this Krishna Padambhujam Slokam on Lord Guruvayurappa. The moment I think of Lord Krishna , Temples of Lord Venkatkrishnan at  Triplicane and Sri Guruvayurappan at Guruvayur comes to my memory. I offer this rendering to them

As this Sloka One should surrender to the Lotus feet of Lord Krishna which  

  • is Auspicious and Beautiful
  • Confers auspiciousness
  • Removes of all Problems
  • Confers Happiness
  • Destroys wicked 
  • Liked by devoted
  • Grants Liberation

  • Truth and Divinity personified
  • Removes bad effects of karma
  • is not comparable
  • is Ever pure
  • bestows joy
  • destroys evil minded
  • confers bliss and happiness
  • Cuts off ties

Let us surrender and pray this Holy Lotus feet daily, sing its glory daily and remember daily
