vṛṣabhānur bhavo bhāviḥ
kolāhalo halī hālī
He is a sun rising among the heroic warriors (vṛṣabhānu). He is the universal form (bhava) and the father of all existence (bhāvi). He is the son of Kaśyapa (kāśyapi). He is an ocean of mercy (karuṇā-nidhi). His voice is like thunder (kolāhala). He is Balarāma, the holder of the plow (halī and hālī). He rebukes His enemeies (helī). He is dear to Lord Balarāma (haladhara-priya).
