(4)
svayam atha sandhim kalayan santan sańge valayan

jaya jaya jaya balarama kevala-manujarama
 

1) O Lord who became angry at Dvivida's terrible mischief, O Lord who enjoyed pastimes on Mount Raivata, O Lord unseen by the foolish conditioned souls, . . .
 
2) O Lord who enjoyed pastimes with many beautiful gopis, O Lord who was angered by a gorilla's arrogant mischief, O Lord who wonderfully fought with the gorilla, . . .
 
3) O Lord who after a long duel finally killed the most wicked of gorillas, O Lord who was pleased by the prayers and obeisances of the demigods and sages, O Lord who gathered the Yadava armies when the Kauravas kidnapped Samba, . . .

4) O Lord who went to the Kauravas' capital to make peace with them, O Lord who heard their insults, . . .

5) O Lord who became very angry with the Kauravas, O Lord who with Your plow dragged Hastinapura, O Lord who filled everyone with wonder, . . .

6) O Lord of whose feet the frightened Kauravas took shelter, O Lord who thus ended the quarrel, O Lord who saw Samba and his wife reunited, O Lord who happily took them home, . . .

7) O brother of Lord Krsna, O Lord who took birth in Gokula, O Lord Balarama who enjoys pastimes like those of a human being, glory, glory, glory to You!
