Sl. No:308; Sarasija naabha kim;
Ataana; Aadi ; Varnam; Saanskrit.
Oh SARASIJANABHA! Your eyes resemble lotus. What did
I do to displease you?
I am afflicted by the arrows of Cupid constantly. You don't seem to
have any mercy on me. Why are you not speaking to me at all today?
What is the difficulty for you to remove the sorrow of my heart? Your
innumerable exploits are glorious. Time is running out. You are adored
by BRAHMA, who was born of lotus from your navel. Oh beloved! Leave
aside anger! Your lips are nectarine. You are adored by INDRA. This
is the right time to show kindness. Oh one with a beautiful forehead
Oh destroyer of all evils of this world!
You subdued the pride of the whole clan of demons.
You have glory of protecting those who prostrate at your feet. Your
form is like dark clouds.
Your words are ethical and sweet. They give immense pleasure. Your feet
are worshipped by celestials. You are beautiful, flawless and pure.
You recline on the serpent king.
Oh my dear! Kindly satisfy my wishes now. Your form is the most beautiful
on earth. Delight me by giving your sweet lips. Give me happiness. Oh
Lord of all worlds! Essence of all virtues! Your visage is blissful and
restful after sporting. Your smile is soft and sweet.
You as a tortoise, supported this frightful world. Please show me the
path after removing all the miseries of my mind.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
