Saviour of the humble, Sri Rama, destroyer of Asuras, Lord of Garuda. You incarnated as a fish.
Possessor of a pure mind, wielder of the KodanDa and bestower of boons. You incarnated as a tortoise. Spouse of Sri, who massages your body, ocean of mercy.
Didn't you assume the form of a mighty boar? You have eyes like the lotus and are worshipped and praised by Indra.
You incarnated as Narasimha, half-man half-lion, long before you came as a human. As one who responds to devotees you keep away from ignorant men. Protector of Gajendra. You protected the Devas as Vamana.
Dispelling the darkness of the sins of your devotees, you are free from wordly attachment. You are the gem of the Raghu race. You also incarnated as Parasurama. Father of Lava and Kusha. You are adept at conferring auspicious attributes and blessings. As the son of Dasharatha you destroyed Ravana. Destroyer of the inequities of Kali. You are
praised by Brahma. You came down as Balarama, with a plough in hand. You are dear to Siddhas. You are the possessor of a celebrated and spotless history. You incarnated as Buddha. You were born as Sri Rama, a name capable of conferring victory, and then as Krishna, the
charioteer of Arjuna. You are Hari, the dispeller of fear. You are Hayamukha, incarnating as Kalki to protect your cherished devotees. You are the source of all Vedas. You delight in reposing on Adisesha.
