Prayers from a saintly king beseeching Krishna to grant him His service. The saintly king Kulashekhara lived more than a millennium ago in India, yet his Mukunda-mala-stotra speaks to us today with the fresh voice of truth. It is the voice of a realized soul beseeching the Lord—and us—with the utmost sincerity. He calls to all people to hear of the treatment for the disease of birth and death. The Mukunda-mala-stotra is a simple expression of King Kulashekhara’s devotion to Krishna and his eagerness to share his good fortune with everyone else.
