Singer: Svarupa Damodara dasa


The Damodarastakam is sung daily during the month of Karthik. Damodar is one of Krishna's names. When he was a baby, his mother Yashoda tied him to a milk churn to keep him from troubling neighbours, stealing their butter and causing general havok with his brother Balarama. Only the love of a mother can bind the Lord in such a way and Damodarastakam prays that we can bind the Lord in our hearts in such a way.

The prayer/bhajan can be found in the Padma Purana of Krishna Dwaipayana Vyasa, that was spoken by Satyavrata Muni in a conversation with Narada Muni and Saunaka Rishi. It is a prayer for love of God, the goal of Bhakti Yoga and all Vaishnavas.
