Oh Lord SARASAYATALOCANA! One whose long eyes resemble
lotus, protect me. Your delicate soft feet are like KALPAKAVRKSHA- the
wish yielding tree.
You are exquisitely beautiful like cores of Cupids and you are GIRIDHARA
one who held aloft the mountain. You are the Lord of LAKSHMI. You are
the brother of INDRA.
The radiance of the moon like effulgence of his toe nails are capable
of destroying the formidable darkness of the cycle of birth and death.
He is perceptible through the VEDAs and UPTANISHAD. He is the conqueror
of MURA, revels in playing flute. He is exquisitely beautiful.
He adorns spotless yellow dress, he is the lord of YADU clan, his lips
out shines the beauty of the BIMBA fruit, he protects all those who
worship Him; He has the sun and the moon as his eyes and he is enchanting.
He took incarnation as the result of NANAGOPA's good fortune. He has
teeth like the buds of jasmine. He took incarnation as a cowherd and
punished the serpent KALIYA. Oh Lord PADMANABHA! Please protect me.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
