Oh SARASA SARASUNDRA-charming like the Cupid! Please protect me! Oh the embodiment of good virtues!
Oh Lord PADMANABHA! How can I spend this autumnal moonlit night without you? Oh the one with glorious exploits?
One whose gait is equal to the king-elephant; having matchless form; skillful in captivating the hearts of all the maidens; worshipped by the sinless; with sparkling and gentle smile; eyes like the red lotus. What is troubling you my Lord?
Oh protector of the whole world!
Oh PAVANA-the sacred! Wipe out my apprehensions.
Even music does not capture me. Oh unparallel, skillful one! What happen to me?
Your divine lots feet is like the heavenly tree to those who worship; oh the one who vanquishes the demons who trouble the people; bestow the undiminishing happiness; oh the one having the face like the lotus and form like the hue of the clouds!
You are the refuge to the sages; held aloft the mountain; come close to me and unite with me immediately. Prevent me from shedding tears; one who reclines on the serpents and should always be meditated upon; the bestower of prosperity; your smile and attire are very attractive; relax comfortably. Your form shines with sandal. You are the eternal cause of joy to the blue sky.

(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
