Narayaniyam Astasaptatitamadasakam Meaning:

Later with the dazzle of your pretty body,
You decorated the island of Dwaraka,
Built by Viswakarma with all his skills,
Which is endowed by all riches by Devas,
And which was new and in the middle of the ocean. ॥ 78.1 ॥

When the king called Revatha, according to the counsel of Brahma,
Gave his daughter in marriage to Lord Balarama,
You along with the large number of Yadavas who came in hoards,
Celebrated the marriage in a gala fashion and made it great. ॥ 78.2 ॥

Oh God, When Rukhmani the daughter of the king of Vidharbha,
Who was deeply in love with you and wanted to marry you,
Her brother Rugmi out of his ignorance offered her in marriage,
To Shisupala, the king of Chedhi who was wicked but a friend of his. ॥ 78.3 ॥

That lass who was greatly in love with you,
For a very long time, becoming deeply dejected,
By this sudden decision against her wishes,
Sent a Brahmin with a message,
To inform you about the pain created,
By the God of love in her. ॥ 78.4 ॥

That Brahmin reached speedily your great city,
Which was difficult for the evil ones to enter,
And became pleased when you,
Who is an expert in destroying the sorrows of the world,
Received, honored and worshipped him. ॥ 78.5 ॥

That Brahmin told you, “In the town of Kundini,
A princess called Rukmani shines who has,
Great love towards you but has lost her courage,
And I have been sent by her to meet you. ॥ 78.6 ॥

She is praying to you oh Lord of the universe,
“ Hearing a lot about your goodness even earlier,
I have fallen in love with you and now,
I understand that Shisupala the king of Chedhi,
Is coming to steal me and so darling of devotees,
Please show mercy and save me from this.” ॥ 78.7 ॥
