Author- Srila Rupa Gosvami
Complied by Srila Jiva Gosvami
Commentary by Srila Baldeva Vidyabhusana
Translated by His Holiness Bhanu Swami
devăcaryam yam viduh sat-kavitve parašaryaṁ tattva-vade mahantah | śngārārtha-vyanjane vyāsa-sūnum sa sri-rupah pätu no bhrtya-vargan ||
Whom the great souls know as the acārya in poetry, as Vyasadeva in discussions on tattva, and as Sukadeva in explaining the meaning of rasa, may that Rūpa protect us, the servants.
Stava Mala, Verse 2
yah ko'pi susthu vrsabhanu-kumarikayah samprarthanastakam idam pathati prapannah sā preyasa saha sametya dhrta-pramoda tatra prasāda-laharim urarikaroti ||
Radha along with Krsna will be pleased with a surrendered person who recites the eight prayers to her and will agree to bestow a wave of mercy to him.
Stava Mala, Gandharva-prārthanāstakam, Verse 9
May Sri Rupa, king of poets, who, very strong, makes difficult poems, give me a wealth of intelligence.
Stava Mālā, Citra-kavitvāni
sri-rupa-devah karunaika-sindhuh stavalim etam yadi nākarisyat | bhakta yathavad vraja-raja-sunor navägamisyan guna-rupa-lilah |
If Rupa Gosvami, an ocean of mercy, had not written the series of stavas, the devotees would not understand sufficiently the qualities, form and pastimes of Krsņa.
