Oh, Sarasijanabha! Protect me. Your feet are extolled by Brahma. Your face resembles the flawless moon.
Your tresses are adorned with Parijata flowers. You are the ocean of incomparable noble virtues. You destroy all the accumulated sins.
You wandered along the sands of the banks of the lovely river Yamuna. Serene ascetics meditate upon your gentle smile. You are as handsome as Cupid. You are the demons what winds are to the clouds. You are unfathomable like the ocean. Oh lord of the world!
You nourished the cattle's; you are like a forest fire to the formidable wicked ones; you are the infinite valor. You showed your wrath on Putana. You held aloft the mountain. The eminent seers proclaim your glory just like the lotus blossoms upon seeing the sun.
Your eyes are long like the lotus petals. You are the enchanting consort of Bhudevi and Sridevi. The brilliance of your robe surpasses that of gold. Your stately and long arms resemble the serpents that adorn Lord Sankara.
