O Dearest Lord! Make haste to protect me. DId you not entice and entangle in the net of your love sixteen-thousand (16,000) GOpis by the irresistible melody of your flute? As child Krishna, you generously distributed to small children stomachfuls of butter and cheese, yet sported an innocent form. O BAla Krishna! Protect me compassionately.
