नामानि प्रणयेन ते सुकृतिनां तन्वन्ति तुण्डोत्सवं
धामानि प्रथयन्ति हन्त जलदश्यामानि नेत्राञ्जनम् ।
सामानि श्रुतिशुष्कलीं मुरलिकाजातान्यलंकुर्वते
कामानिर्वृतचेतसामपि विभो नाशापि नः शोभते ॥
Now that we have become Your devotees, Your holy names have affectionately created a jubilant festival in our mouths. Your bodily splendor, like a dark raincloud, has become the black decorative of our eyes, and the music of Your flute has become the ornament of our ears. We no longer take pleasure in material desires. O Almighty Lord, material desires no longer appear beautiful to us.
