Shloka 7

Agraahyash Shaasvatah Krishno Lohitaakshaf Pratardanah |
Prabhootas Trikakubdhaama Pavitram Mangalam Param ||7||

Purport:

The Lord is beyond the grasp of others and cannot be reached by the normal senses. He is eternal and is in a permanent state of bliss for whom Creation is a Sport. His eyes are Red like the Lotus flower. He is the annihilator of the Universe and subsumes the world within Him at the time of Deluge or Pralaya. He is affluent and well-endowed with Greatness. He is the one who is the protector in all three States of Consciousness, the one who is Pure and Supremely auspicious.

This Shloka contains the following 9 Namas:

  1. Agraahyah
  2. Shaasvatah
  3. Krishnah
  4. Lohitaakshah
  5. Pratardanah
  6. Prabhootah
  7. Trikakubdhaama
  8. Pavitram
  9. Mangalam Param

The Lord is beyond the grasp of others, hence He is Agraahyah. He is eternal and hence Shaasvatah. He is in a permanent state of bliss for whom Creation is a Sport, he is called Krishna. He is Lotus red eyed and hence known as Lohitaakshah. He is the annihilator of the Universe at the time of Pralaya and hence is Pratardanah.

He is affluent and well endowed with greatness and so He is called Prabhootah. He supports the three States of Consciousness and hence known as Trikakubdhaama. He is Pure and hence Pavitram and He is Supremely Auspicious, hence He is Mangalam Param.
