Sl. No.211; Paalaya sadaa; Durbaar; Aadi ; Keerthanam;
Oh Lord MADHAVA! One with beautiful eyes like lotus!
Please protect me forever.
Your form resembles the dark clouds. You are revered by BRAHMA and SIVA.
You are the wish-yielding tree to the devoted. You are SRI PADMANABHA,
Oh SAURE! the sovereign of the universe, and the vanquisher of the demon
You destroy the worldly attachment to things like the nectar of the
lotus flower, bestowing upon your devotees the ultimate bliss equivalent
of ambrosia. You are engrossed in playing nectarine melodies on the
flute. You are awesome to opponents and benevolent in bestowing boons
You are expert in showing kindness, you alleviated the suffering of
the great elephant. You repose on the ocean of milk. Your exquisitely
beautiful form matches a core of Cupid. You dwell in the hearts of ascetics.
You ride on GARUDA, the foe of serpents.
You are the source of joy to the celestials. You are adorned in golden
yellow raiment, oh beloved of LAKSHMI! Oh GOPALA, beautiful child with
a lovely forehead like the crescent moon! You are decked in TULASI garland
and by your very nature offer protection to the pious and virtuous.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
