I meditate (bhaavaye) on thy shapely and delicate neck (komalam kaNtha- desham)which is reddened (aruNitam) by the rays of lustre (shrii-tatibhih) radiating upwards(utsarpat) from the Kausthubha jewel which adorns your neck.

On your chest (vakshhaH) made attractive by the Srivatsa mark, there are a number of pearl necklaces (haara-prataanam) which are constantly shaking (tarala-tara) and dazzling (samuddiipra). and also (tathaa) necklaces of gems (ratna-maala).

A garland of forest flowers (vanya maalaa), made of tender sprouts (kisalayinii) and rows of flowers (prasuuna-aavali) of various colours (naanaa-varNa) , round which bees (lolamba) are hovering (vilolat) , is dangling (lambamaanaa) on your chest (tava urasi).

May this divine form of yours be firmly imprinted in my consciousness.
