Oh Lord! Please fix my mind at your feet. Hail! RAGHUVIRA!
One who is unparallel, whose hands excel the beauty of Cupid and offers
the sign of protection with the right hand.
One who is nurtured by KAUSALYA the gem among the women; having the
hue of emerald, which equals the colour of crores of bees; adorns the lap
of the great emperor DASARATHA; engaged in apt childhood plays: the
colour of the gentle palm surpasses the hue of the dark red coral; the
great remarkable palm indicates that it is governed with the divine
mark of SANKHA-conch and CAKRA-wheel.
Went along with the sage VISVAMITRA the master of oblations; to protect
the oblations, He vanquished in the battle with ease and dedication,
the clever MARICA and the other wickeds who repeatedly disturbed the YAGA-s
throwing blood and flesh; He has the glory of subduing INDRA; He was
like the sun to darkness in removing the misfortunes of the sage GAUTAMA;
while fixing the arrow at ease with His mighty thumb to the divine bow,
the earth worshipped.
While the king of VIDEHA gives his daughter in marriage by offering
ceremonial water, He was shining like molten gold, by the worship offered
by SITA with her eyes resembling lotus-petal, who advances at a close
proximity with her head bowed down. He had the power of facing the rugged
PARASURAMA and subjugating him; surrounded by the people of KOSALA and
With due respect and regard to the command of the one, to whom he was
born; JANAKA-DAASARATHA, He left His birth-place, Passing through mountains,
trees and creepers to the hermitage. He went in search of the golden
deer that was attractive to SITA. Just by kicking the skeleton of the
formidable DUNDHUBI, He gained the trust of the son of sun-god SUGRIVA.
In the process of killing BALI, He lodged himself behind a tree and
split the all powerful BALI.
One who gave the eternal prosperity to the gentle eminent VIBHISHANA
who surrendered unto Him; one was content holding the tender hands of
ANJANEYA, a scholar in divine scriptures; showered arrows on the ocean
like rays of stringed beads; immediately built the SETU with the host
of monkeys; arrived at the ridges of SUVELA mountains.
One who has the reputation of severing the cluster of necks of RAVANA,
and drencing his necks with blood; proficient in removing the miseries
and giving joy to SITA who was waiting for Him longingly. One who possesses
the shining gem studded sandals returned by BHARATA; adorned with armour
effulgent with shining rays; one who adroitly relieved the people of SAKETA from
their heart rending sorrow felt by them during his long absence.
One who is effulgent with the crown, brought by the group of DEVA-s,
which is aromatic with the fragrant flower pollen of the celestial tree.
The one who is eternal; who is skillful in destroying those who deviate
from DHARMA-the right path; one who adorns the befitting throne of the
solar dynasty; one who dwells like the swan in the lotus like hearts
of the sages. He was seated on the throne in the company of beautiful
SITA, who is the gem among maidens.
