I offer my respectful obeisances to Sri Krishna, whose form is eternal and full of knowledge and bliss, who is our rescuer from distress, who is understood by Vedanta, who is the supreme spiritual master, and who is the witness in everyone’s heart.
– Gopala Tapaniya Upanishad Verse 1
Krishna means “He who delivers from Sin”,
Govinda means He who is famous on the Earth, in the Vedas, and among the Surabhi Cows!
Gopijanavallabha means He who enchants the Gopis,
and Svaha means the Potency of the Supreme.
All these names refer to the Supreme Personality of Godhead
– Gopala Tapaniya Upanishad Verse 5
Meditating with all his heart on Lord Krishna, whose eyes are handsome lotus flowers, whose complexion is like a monsoon cloud, whose garments are lightning, who has two arms, who is rich in transcendental knowledge, who wears a garland of forest flowers,
Who is the supreme controller, who is surrounded by gopas, gopis, and surabhi cows, who rests under a sura-druma tree, who is decorated with splendid ornaments, who stands in the middle of a red lotus flower, and who is served by breezes that have touched the Yamuna’s waves, (meditating upon that Shri Krishna) a person becomes free from repeated birth and death.
This mantra should be repeatedly chanted: “klim krishnaya govindaya gopijanavallabhaya svaha”
– Gopala Tapaniya Upanishad Verse 10 – 11
It was Krishna who in the beginning instructed Brahma in Vedic knowledge and who disseminated Vedic knowledge in the past.
They who desire liberation surrender to Him, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who grants transcendental knowledge to His devotees.
– Gopala Tapaniya Upanishad Verse 22
By remembering Me a shallow person becomes deep.
By remembering Me an impure person becomes pure.
By remembering Me an impious person becomes pious.
By remembering Me one full of material desires becomes desireless.
By remembering Me a fool becomes learned.
– Gopala Tapaniya Upanishad 2.6
