Gopala Vimsathi consists of 21 slokas on Krishna from His birth to Krishna’s vasthrabharanam. Swami Deiskan composed these slokas when he was overcome by the beauty of the Archa Murthy of Sri Rajagopalan in the Divya Desam at Thiruvahindrapuram. The Sanskrit name for twenty is Vimsathi and hence these twenty verses in praise of Sri Gopala are celebrated as Sri Gopala Vimsathi. Sloka 12 ‘Adharahita chharu vamsa nalaa, Muktalambhi Mayoora pincha mala, Hari neelashila vihanga leela Prathibhasanthu mama anthima prayane’ conveying his desire to see Krishna with flutes in his lips, blue peacock feather in his hair, at the end of his life is sure to attain Lord’s grace. Also it is believed that recitation of this sloka gets blessings to get a child.
