Prof. Neyyattinkara Mohanachandran.

I always worship the lotus feet of Lord PADMANABHA. He is having the hue of the water bearing cloud.
His teeth are shining like the jasmine buds. He is praised by MUCUKUNDA. His nose resembles the sesame flower and smile is beautiful and soft. He is the fountain of virtues, reclining on the bed of serpent king.
He is pleased to give boons to those who aspire. His dresses outshine gold, is having a beautiful TILAKA on his forehead. He is praised by SIVA and BRAHMA.
He is anointed with fragrant sandal paste on his body. He is like a sword that cuts the tree of the enemy of the celestials, is friend of ARJUNA and he is to virtuous what sun is to lotus.

(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
