I always meditate upon Lord PADMANABHA, who is the treasure
trove of noble virtues.
He is the refuge to the celestials and sages; protector of hapless;
bestower of auspiciousness; having a lotus like feet, one whose exploits
are marvellous and pure. He is like axe in cutting the huge tree of
sins. He is to those who seek refuge in him what sun is to the lotus;
all pervading! One whose eyes excel lotus.
The one adorned with golden crown; fore head is adorned with KASTURI
-the musk; he is, to the fierce demons, the burden on earth, what fire
is to wood. His form is attractive to the maidens. The one who dissolves
the afflictions of sentient and insentient, the charming one, inaccessible
to those with evil deeds, one who is decorated with beautiful garlands
He dispelled the sorrows of the elephant, just as the wind dispells
the cloud. His form is as effulgent as the beautiful cloud. Progenitor
of Cupid; he is as mighty as the ocean and is worshipped by eminent
ones; embodiment of generosity. One who delights with LAKSHMI! Reclines
on the ocean of milk; sports gentle smile; dispeller of the dreadful
miseries of cycle of existence. One who is effulgent with bright teeth
that subdues the beauty of jasmine buds.
One who delights being worshipped by INDRA and others, one who is draped
in the attire that surpasses the gold. He is the celestial tree to the
host of devotees. He is the benevelent Lord, worshipped by eminent sages.
Beholder of effulgent disc that equals hundreds of suns. He is radiant;
sports GARUDA as the mount; one whose greatness was glorified by sage
VYASA. He is most distinguished for his compassionate gracefull glance.
