I meditate upon Sri Padmanabha, who is generous, the consort of Sridevi and Bhudevi
Your feet are sought after forever as a refuge by Siva and other celestials; the one with lotus-like eyes. In my heart, I meditate upon.
Your very attractive form, is praiseworthy; Your radiant smile resembles the jasmine buds; Your recline on the serpent-bed; You are adorned with shining weapons like the sword Nandaka; Your face equals the moon; teeth like the crystals; vanquisher of the demon Mura and one who protects the devotees. Destroyer of evils created by the wicked ones; one who protects the people; excels the clouds in beauty; adorned with the golden crown which dazzles with multiple gems; an embodiment of virtues; worshiped by Brahma; your toe-nail shines like a crescent moon; Your feet resemble the newly blossomed lotus. Remover of the dreadful miseries of those who surrender and the supreme. being of the entire universe.
One who saved the king-elephant from the miseries; a refuge of ascetics who are desire-less; a very compassionate one in eagerly bestowing prosperity; the ultimate source for the adorable; effulgent with the golden ornaments; neck adorned with Vanamala; You are the bestower of all the desired boons. You held aloft the mountain Mandara. Adorned with golden yellow attire, eyes like the sun and the moon; You are like the serpent to the enemies who cause trouble to the world, having elegant thighs like the trunk of an elephant; one who indulged in glorious, sacred incarnations, like Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, etc. One who dispelled the wicked ones and supported the helpless.
One who burnt to cinders the wild fire-like worldly life; repose amidst the milky ocean; glorified by Narada and others; blows away all the sins, just as the wind does to cotten. Effluent like the shining pearl; radiates with the pure crimson-hued Kaustubha; worshiped by the people around; Your chest shines with the Srivatsa mark, made by the touch of the feet of the sage Bhrgu (Re. Bhagavata-Dasamaskandha). Seated on Garuda; hair with the fragrance of flowers like Parijata; lips that excels the reddish beauty of Bimba fruit; You hold the conch, lotus, etc. in your lotus-like hands. The auspicious one; all the scriptures recite and expound that you have hundreds of faces. Brahama who resides in the white louts that emerge from your illustrious lotus-like naval. I meditate upon Sri Padmanabha.
