Context and Meaning 

“pralaya-payodhijale” is the first of the Gita Govinda Ashtapadis. It appears just after the poet makes a short introduction, and is a hymn offered to the ten incarnations of Vishnu. Starting from the Matsya-avatara, each verse extols the greatness of one incarnation. The final verse then describes all of these avataras as belonging to Krishna, and requests him to listen to the poet’s following words.
