Oh Lord Padmanabha! the enemy of Mura! Please protect me.
Oh Lord with a shining face, which resembles the autumnal moon, you are ever eager to help those who surrender at your feet. You are worshiped by Brahma and Indra.
Your long eyes resemble the red lotus. Your form is exquisitely beautiful. You held aloft the mountains and supported the earth; you are resplendent with the Tulasi garland. You are the fierce and ruthless demons, what the forest fire is to the dense forest.
Your majestic gait is like that of an elephant in youthful vigor. you are adorned with shining robes like molten gold. You are ever-present in the lotus hearts of sages. You are adorned with a priceless gem-studded crown.
Your dark form resembles the rain-bearing clouds. You allay the fears of all the celestials. You are adored by Siva, the consort of the daughter of the mountains - Parvathi!. This is the opportune moment oh lord, to take away all my miseries.
