This Stotra has been composed by Sage Bilvamangal also known as Lila Sukh. The Govind-Damodar Stotram is the ecstasic outpouring of pure Bhakti of this great servant of Lord Krishna. This stotra focuses on the following names of Lord Krishn:


Govind – He who lifted the earth (Go) Or He who is the chief of cows.


Damodar – He who is known by knowledge got by self restraint or He who was tied by Mother Yashoda in the stomach or He who keeps the enitre universe in his belly called Dhama.


Madhav – He who was born in the family of Madhu.

There is an ancient story behind this verse “Kararvinde Padarvindam”  where Bala Krishna keeps his lotus like feet on his lotus like mouth with his lotus like hand & who sleeps on the vata patra( leaf of banyan tree) .


kararavindena padaravindam

mukharavinde viniveshayantam

vatasya patrasya pute shayanam

balam mukundam manasa smarami. 1


It is mentioned in our scriptures like Bhagwat Puran , Mahabharat etc that : During the dissolution of the universe, the sage Markandeya witnesses the horror of the great deluge, as humanity disappears under water. Suddenly, he spots a little child floating on a banyan leaf on the dangerous torrents, grabbing his lotus-like toe and placing it in his mouth.Bala Gopala, the miraculous baby Krishna, lies on a banyan leaf, content, innocent, with a hint of amusement on his face. All around him, waters rise to submerge the continents and mountains, drowning every forest, river valley, desert and island. He is unaffected by the pralaya (doomsday), while sage Markandeya watches the miracle, amazed. Markandeya finds himself sucked into the baby’s body and, to his surprise, discovers the whole world, with all its realms, safely tucked inside the child, quite oblivious to the calamity outside. The great sage then realises that the baby is a god, who has withdrawn the world into himself before recreating the universe.
