Oh PADMANABHA! Adorned with golden raiment; protect
me. Your form resembles the fresh clouds.
You made the hood of serpent as the stage. You are the personification
of beauty and virtues and vanquisher of the demon MURA.
You are easily accessible to the group of people who worship your feet;
your eyes are like the tender petals of the lotus; protector of host
of celestials. Your mount is GARUDA; praised in many ways by the scriptures;
your feet have the glory of removing all miseries; enlighten me to worship
you always. You have a beautiful forehead. Oh the ultimate supreme!
Oh the flawless one! Your gait is equal to the king elephant; you subdued
the pride of the Cupid; have a charming form; remover of impurities;
subjugator of BRAHMA and having an effulgent form like the blue water
Always bestow comfort and joy on me. Oh! Supreme!
Oh the boundless! Remove all my sins; you have a charming gentle smile;
protector of ARJUNA; Oh KHALAPHANI VIHAGA- the one who reclines on the
huge serpent- ADISESHA! Dwell in my heart! Protector of the virtuous
people! You are praised by BRAHMA and INDRA. Oh repository of compassion!
Do not cast me away into worldly turmoil.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
