Krishna (Cassette from Sangeetha, "Sri Padmanabha").
I worship the benevolent SARASIRUHANABHA!
He is the wish yielding tree to those who worship His feet. Oh Lord!
His feet are fondly carressed by the lotus like hands of goddess LAKSHMI; He burns to
cinders the whole clan of cruel demons. He is the refuge for the most helpless. He is
the ocean of limitless, spotless virtues. SIVA, BRAHMA,and INDRA adore Him. He relieved
the elephant from misery.
The vision of His reclining on the king serpent is exquisitely beautiful. He holds a discus
and a conch in His hands. He sports a pure and gentle smile. his face resembles moon and
gives joy to His devotees. He is the projenitor of Cupid. He dwells in the hearts of honest ones.
He is very adept in speaking compassionately, the sweetness of which excells nector.
his garment shines like gold. His legend decreases the burden of the earth and removes sorrows.
he is adorned with pearl garlands that radiate like the sun.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
