kriti on Guruvayoorappan is sung in Abheri by Sri Trichur V. Ramachandran
Oh PANKAJAYAYANA! Your glory is sacred! Protect me
Grant me the devotion towards you. Oh the one who favours the hapless.
One who excels the effulgent form of the water bearing dark clouds.
Oh SAURI! Grant me the comfort, oh the Lord of GURUVAYUR! Grant me oh
Lord! The ocean of compassion!
Oh the one who protected the elephant! PADMANABHA! Reclining on the
serpent! Why there is no sympathy evolving towards me? Please show your
compassion to me-the dejected one. Oh the one shining with fish shaped
ear ornament! Your divine spots are praise worthy. One who is distinguished
One who sports GARUDA as the mount. Oh VASUDEVA! KRISHNA! One who was
the indispensable charioter for PANDAVA-s oh consort of LAKSHMI! Oh
the one who burnt to cinder the wicked demons who are the enemies of
the celestials! One who was worshipped by BRAHMA and INDRA. One who
dissolved the pride of the king serpent KALIYA.
One who delights in sporting with the cowherd maidens. Oh KESAVA! One who
is adorned in the hands with conch, wheel, mace and lotus. One whose
neck is adorned with splendid garlands; clan of GOPA-s one who is the
vanquisher of demon MADHU; oh Lord! Beholder of mountain! I take refuge
unto you. Oh God!
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
