 यस्मिन्नेतद्विभातं यत इदमभवद्येन चेदं य एत-
द्योऽस्मादुत्तीर्णरूप: खलु सकलमिदं भासितं यस्य भासा ।
यो वाचां दूरदूरे पुनरपि मनसां यस्य देवा मुनीन्द्रा:

Oh Lord Krishna , My salutations to you , who art the very Brahman which is the substratumof this universe, from which this universe took birth and into which it dissolves; whichis, indeed, what appears as the universe but which transcends it; by the light of whichthis universe is illumined; which is far beyond description or picturisation by words andbeyond conception by the mind; and the true nature of which even the gods and greatsages do not fully comprehend, not to speak of lesser beings

Dasakam: 098 -- Slokam: 02
 जन्माथो कर्म नाम स्फुटमिह गुणदोषादिकं वा न यस्मिन्
लोकानामूतये य: स्वयमनुभजते तानि मायानुसारी ।
विभ्रच्छक्तीररूपोऽपि च बहुतररूपोऽवभात्यद्भुतात्मा
तस्मै कैवल्यधाम्ने पररसपरिपूर्णाय विष्णो नमस्ते ॥२॥

My salutions to Thee, O Vishnu, who art the Supreme Bliss Absolute and the abodeof salvation; for whom there is neither birth nor activity, nor name; in whom attributes ofgood and evil and the like are not manifest and, yet, You assume all of them independently for the good of the world through Maya,Taking in to your control, knowledge and ignorance though you are formless,Due to your being innately miraculous , you shone in various forms,And Oh God , I salute you who is full of divine joy and the form of salvation.

Dasakam: 098 -- Slokam: 03
 नो तिर्यञ्चन्न मर्त्यं न च सुरमसुरं न स्त्रियं नो पुंमांसं
न द्रव्यं कर्म जातिं गुणमपि सदसद्वापि ते रूपमाहु: ।
शिष्टं यत् स्यान्निषेधे सति निगमशतैर्लक्षणावृत्तितस्तत्
कृच्छ्रेणावेद्यमानं परमसुखमयं भाति तस्मै नमस्ते ॥३॥

According to the Upanishads Thy form is not that of a bird or animal, man or god or demon; it is neither female nor male; it is not of matter/substance, function, or quality ;it is neither existent nornon-existent (being Existence itself). Thou art what remains after negation ofeverything, and is implied or signified, with considerable difficulty, by innumerablescriptural statements and averments as the Supreme Being, and which shines as BlissAbsolute. And Oh God , I salute you who is full of divine joy and the form of salvation.

Dasakam: 098 -- Slokam: 04
 मायायां बिम्बितस्त्वं सृजसि महदहङ्कारतन्मात्रभेदै-
र्भूतग्रामेन्द्रियाद्यैरपि सकलजगत्स्वप्नसङ्कल्पकल्पम् ।
भूय: संहृत्य सर्वं कमठ इव पदान्यात्मना कालशक्त्या
गम्भीरे जायमाने तमसि वितिमिरो भासि तस्मै नमस्ते ॥४॥

As an image reflected in Maya you create the entire universe employing,Intellect , ego differences, the senses of sound, touch form , taste and smell,As well the five elements, the eleven sense organs , as projected in a state of dream,And at the time of deluge like a tortoise drawing its legs within himself ,Using your soul which has the power of destruction you destroy everything, The whole universe is projected like a dream and the articles in the dream. Again withdrawing everything into Thyself with Thy power of Kaal (Time), like the totoise drawing in its legs, an intense darkness is produced. Uneffectedd by this darkness, Thou do shine. To That Thee salutations.

Dasakam: 098 -- Slokam: 05
 शब्दब्रह्मेति कर्मेत्यणुरिति भगवन् काल इत्यालपन्ति

O Lord! who art all-comprehensive and, hence,conceivable in any and every form or manner; Who art the prime cause of the entire universe; everything are described as and are spoken of as the Primeval Sound, Karma, Atom, Time and so on. In Vedaant that reality alone is called Purusha, Supreme Being, Pure Conciousness and Aatma, and by whose mere glance causes Maayaa to project the universe with various modifications. And Oh Lord Krishna , my salutations to you.

Dasakam: 098 -- Slokam: 06
 सत्त्वेनासत्तया वा न च खलु सदसत्त्वेन निर्वाच्यरूपा

Avidyaa, ignorance, which cannot be described as existent or non existent or even both, projects the objective world, just as a rope is projected as a snake,And this world is similar to that as it appears as existing to all of us,And this same illusion , under the presence of the tide of the divine mercy,When we slowly start understanding the implication of Vedic philosophy,Becomes the great axe of wisdom and helps us to clear the forest of life,And Oh God !who is everything, my salutations to you.

Dasakam: 098 -- Slokam: 07

On contemplation of the true nature of things, one realises that, in truth, there is onlythe non-dual Self or Brahman that shines in the universe,When we think about the principle of the world, like the Gold in the case of ornaments,Like the clay in case of pot and other earthen vessels , the Brahmam in you,Which is without any second in this world shines lustrously,And like a man realizing the truth after waking up after the dream ,And like the realization about the rope after the day break,When ignorance is removed, the real truth in the principle,Would become clear and shine, Oh Krishna my salutations to you.

Oh Lord! our obeisance to Thee who art the Controller of the entire universe; Fearing whom the sun rises, the fire burns, the wind blows, and Brahmaa and others bring appropriate offerings perform their functions at the proper time. By whom alone they are raised to their places at the beginning of creation and later removed. To That Controller of the world! To Thee Krishna! we make prostrations.

Using the three yogas namely Jnana, Karma and Bhakti), constantly worship Theewho doth manifest the three worlds suffused with the three Gunas (Sattva, Rajas andTamas); Who art the one revealed and signified by the three-lettered Pranava AUM; Who art the combined embodiment of the Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Siva);Who art the Entity sung about by the three Vedas (Rik, Yajus and Sama); Who artcognisant of the three states (waking, dreaming and deep slumber); Who dothincarnate in the three yugas (Threta, Dvapara and Kali); Who doth measure (asVamana) the entire universe in three strides; and Who doth remain unchanged in thepast, present and future.

That attribute-less (Nirguna) aspect of Thine doth shine forth victoriously - That aspectwhich is the eternally pure, changeless Reality; ever vigilant; ever free;is devoid of desire (and, hence, action-less); transcends all dualities; is thefountainhead of all good qualities and attributes, yet, itself without origin or cause; iswithout blemish, being untainted by sentiments or emotions like love, hate, etc; isrefulgent with infinite glory; which is latent in the hearts and minds of sages who arebondage-free; and which is resplendent with concentrated, matchless, Supreme BlissAbsolute

O Vishnu! Thy irreversible wheel of time with its twelve spokes(months),and 360 teeth (days), whirling with ferocious speed, cutting the universe every moment , and running forward, may it not torment me, whose only refuge is at Thy feet.!. O Vishnu, Ocean of mercy and Hey Lord of Guruvayur, Please save me from all diseases and give me protection.
