Prayer for Surrender

O Lord Shri Krishna!

kutti cutie krishna

I stand before you having been overtaken and bitten by the serpent of time,

I have frittered away all my time,

In useless materialistic pursuits that are for nought,

Not realising the python of time in the form of death lurking any moment,

Having transmigrated through millions of species since time immemorial,

Now achieved this rare human form by Your grace,

That alone has the faculties of self-realization,

But…Alas…I have not gone beyond the four basic instincts,

Of eating, sleeping, mating and defending,

Living like the lower species of life,

Without understanding the real purpose of life,

Now, you have made me surrender to your beautiful lotus feet,

From whose toe nails the mighty Ganges emanated,


To lift me up from this abominable condition,

To your abode,

To live with you forever,

Now activate my soul to look to the Supersoul (Paramatma) residing in the heart,

For the rest of my life,

To guide me,

To realise my follies,

To attain self-realization,

To cross the mighty ocean of material existence,

Just like one crosses the water over a cow’s hoofprint,

For this, I surrender to thee… Lord Shri Krishna!

"Knowledge is the ultimate perfection of self-realization.". (Srimad Bhagavatham 3.26.2) Trying to seek that knowledge through life experiences that leads to compassion, dispassion and ultimately satisfaction.

  1. So inspiring and beautiful. I want to say to Lord Krishna, “ditto, ditto, ditto” for me too Bhagavan – This magical prayer of Surrender. Thank you so much – yes, it comes from a deep place of the soul that opens only by His Blessings. Sri Krishna Sharanam Mama!

    1. So true…i was literally lost for words in that D-moment…many a time something like this happens that cannot be expressed in words….i remember in a paraphrased dramatical narration of the documentary on the legendary mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan…his grand mother at the time of his birth fell into a trance…and uttered a few words of the baby…he is Goddess Namagiri’s child…he is going to do magic…and indeed When Srinivasa Ramanujan was with Professor Hardy and when he asked him about the mystery and magic of his mystically divine equations, he explicitly quoted to him saying “Goddess Namagiri comes in my dreams and just write these equations in my tongue” I think you must be knowing this. Some things are just not possible without divine interventions. We should accept that, acknowledge that and prepare ourselves to be aligned with the divine so as to get these mystic experiences.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I believe this prayer is for everyone. Just need to replace Krishna with the God of one’s heart as one desires!
