Oh SAMBO! Always protect me! You are the ocean of the
essence of compassion. Oh SAMBA! One, who has the lotus feet, worshipped
by the celestials like INDRA and others. One who is eternal.
Oh the divine manifestation adorned by serpents! One who is worshipped
and glorified by sages like NARADA. One who has nectar like speech;
the one who dissolves the afflictions of the devotees; having lotus
like face and is the embodiment of good virtues.
Beholder of trident in the hand, one who sports the radiant and beautiful
oxen as the mount; one who banishes the skilful enemies of the celestials.
One whose form dissolves the afflictions of the entire world.
One who delights in the mountain of KAILASA. One who decisively banished
the consort of RATI-the cupid. One who protects all the three worlds;
one whose forehead is effulgent with the crescent moon; one who delights
with the sister of Lord PADMANABHA.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
