Oh PARAMAPURUSHA! God of the universe! PADMANABHA!
Enemy of demon MURA! Victory unto you.
Oh SAURE! Your glory is praised by BRAHMA, SANKARA and INDRA.
Your smiling beautiful face resembles the lotus; Oh Lord! You have GARDUA
as your vehicle; You are the vanquisher of the demons and saviour of
those who prostrate at your sacred feet. You are like wild fire to the
You recline on the serpent king; You adorn pure gold ornaments; You
hold SANKHA and CAKRA in your two hands; You are the fountain of wisdom
and free from desires-MOHA.
You adorn beautiful garlands of wild flowers and KAUSTUBHA; You are
worshipped by sun; You wiped out the afflictions of INDRA and You are
the Lord of SYANANDURAPURA.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
