Krishna [Madhava] is the lover of Radha. He displays many amorous pastimes in the groves of Vrindavana, He is the lover of the cowherd maidens of Vraja [the gopis], the holder of the great hill named Govardhan, the beloved son of Mother Yashoda, the delighter of the inhabitants of Vraja, and He wanders in the forests along the banks of the River Yamuna.


Invocation to Srimad Bhagavatam
(chanted before class)

om namo bhagavate vasudevaya

O my Lord, the all-pervading Personality of Godhead, I offer my respectful obeisances unto You.
