Oh, God of Gods ! I serve at your lotus feet. Oh, Mahavishnu ! spouse of Rema, Lord of three worlds, pray dispel all my worldly afflictions. You are pure-hearted and revered by supreme ascetics. You listen to the sufferings of the devotees, remove their sins and fufilll their desires through your kindly glances.Your sacred feet, capable of preventing and arresting the audacious opponents, are worshipped by Indra and other celestials. May the God, so pleased by the glories sung by Brahma, as he emerged from the God's navel, bless me with goodwill and well-being. May the kindly God, who wears Pithambara, the yellow silk, shining like blazing fire, annihilate all my afflictions accumulated through past births. May the Valiant God, Padmanabha, who vanquished the Asuravamsha in support of the cause of the oppressed and who remains like a Kalpavruksha to those taking refuge in him, come and protect me !
