I sing praising the Lord Vishnu
Shaanta – He who has the peace
Kaaram – demeanor and visage
shayanam – He who sleeps and reposes
bhujaga – on the serpents
padma – He who has a lotus shaped
naabham – Navel
He who is the master and lord
Suresham – of all the gods
I pray to the Lord Vishnu.
dhaaram – He who holds the
vishwaa – universe in his hands.
sadrasham – He whose vision exceeds
gagana – beyond all the skies
varanam – He whose color and visage is
megha – changeable like the clouds
shubh – he who is filled with goodness
aangam – in every part of his body.
I sing praise to the Lord Vishnu.
kaantam – He who is the husband
lakshmi – of the goddess of wealth
He whose eyes (nayanam) are surreal
kamala – like a lotus flower
agamyam – he who yogis yearn to reach
dhyaana – through meditation
I sing praises (vande-) to the Lord Vishnu (-vishnum)
He who removes (-haram) all our fears (-bhaya)
bhava – due to our inborn nature
And he who is the master (-naatham) of the
entire (-sarva) universe and creation (-lokaika).
