I meditate upon VANAJAKSHA-the lotus eyed. Oh the conqueror
of demons; brother of INDRA!; MUKUNDA!
The Lord with flawless moon-like charming face. The one with blue hue
and is praised by celestials and demi-gods. One who is draped in the
attire that excels gold. Protector of the devoted ones, who prostrate
at His lotus feet. One who is PADMANABHA.
Worshipped by the sages like AGASTYA, SAUNUKA and the son of BRAHMA.
You are the incomparable sharp axe in cutting down the multitude of
sins; adorned with various shining ornaments; eyes that are brimming
with compassion, and mighty as the mountain. Oh PADMANABHA!
You hold conch, disc, mace and lotus. The embodiment of virtues; praised
by the people of the world; your effulgent form equals that of Cupid. Oh
PADMANABHA! You dwell in SYANANDURAPURA and worshipped.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
