Vishnu Stutis by Brahma and Devi Aditi

Brahma: Namah sarvaarti naashaaya namah Pushkara maliney, Namah Paramakalyanaadi -vedhasey/ Namah pankaja netraaya namah pankajannaabhaye, Shriyah kaantaaya daantaaya Paramaarthaanaaya Chakriney/ Namah Pankaja sambhuti sambhaavaatma-yonavey, Namah shankhaa sahi hastaaya Namah Kanakaretasey/ Tathaatma jnaanayogi chintyaamaatma yoginey, Nirgunaayaaviseshaaya Haraey Brahmarupiney/ Jagatpratishthitam yatra Jagataam yo na drushyatey, Namah sthulaati sukshmaaya Tasmai Devvaya shaaranginey/ Yam na pashyanti pashyanto jagadyakhilam naraah, Apashyadabhirjagatraya sa Devo hrudi samsthitah/ Yasminneva vinashyet yasyaitadakhilam jagat, Tasmai Samasta jagadaadhaaraaya namo namah/ Aaadyah Prajaapati patiryah Prabhuunaam Patih parah, Patih Suraanaam yatasmai namah Krishnaaya Vedhasey/Yah pravurtthou nivrutthou cha ijjatey karmabhih swakaih, Swaraapavarga phaladou Namastasmai Gadaabhrutey/ Yacchinthyamano masah sadyah paapam vyapohati, Namastasmai Vishuddhaaya Paraaya Hari vedhasey/ Yam buddhvaa sarva bhutaani Deva deveshamavyayam, Na punarjanma maraney Praaptunanti Namaami tam/ Yo yagney Yagna paramaireejyatey Yagna sagjnitah, Tam Yagna purusham Vishnum namaami Prabhureeshwaram/
(My salutations to Kamala Mulaa- dhaari Bhagavan! You are the demolisher of all sins and the Prime bestower of propitious -ness; you are the Lotus Eyed, the Lotus navelled, Lakshmipati, Chakradhaari, the Epitome of capability and of Supreme Profile! My obeisnances to you; You are the Creator of the Creators and the Self-Generator; the bearer of Shankha and Khadga and of Golden Sperm; You are the target of Soul-searchers and Yogis; the Featureless, Endless, All- pervading but invisible; the most magnified yet the most miniscule; the absorber of the entire Universe in his heart and vice versa; You are the fulcrum of the ‘Jagat’; the Decider of the ‘Karma Phala’ (Fate) of every Being in existence; Gadaadhari! Adikarta! Each of one’s thoughts about You Sri Hari, snips off sins and difficulties at once; those who could break the vicious circle of births and deaths deserve my sincere falicitations; and those who perform Yagnas, the deeds in the name of Yagnas as also worship that Maha Yagna Purusha Vishnu deserve my admirations too).

(I salute the victorious Vishnu who is chanted by Vidwans by the Four Vedas and is sought to be approached through that medium; I pay my reverences to Bhagavan Vishnu who is the Creator of the Universe which is finally absorbed into Him and who safeguards the regulations of Vedas; my respects to that Supreme Architect who encompasses ‘Srishti’ from Brahma downwards to a piece of grass to lift me from the deep morass of ‘Mayajaal’or the heavy pulls of illusion; I hail that Vishveshwara who is set in the form of water protects and preserves the entire Creation; I greet that Upendra whom those illustrious persons worship through their hearts, adulations and deeds far beyond the reaches of Avidya / Ignorance and seek salvation; I pray to Vishnu who makes all the ‘Charachara Praanis’(moving or immobile Beings) hop, jump and dance with various emotions of laughing, crying, anger, passion and pity; my prostrations to that unique Super Power who like Surya Deva devastates pitch darkness typified with Asuras and Evil Spirits with glorious and ever-resplendent radiance; my entreaties to Narayana who assumes the sacred form of Maharshis like Kapila to demolish ‘Ajnana’/ ignorance and usher in ‘Vijnana’ /knowledge) to enlighten humanity about the do’s and don’t of  life; and my veneration to the Omni-scient who like Surya and Chandra as his eyes notice each and every thought, feeling, act and deed of all the Beings).[Essence of Matsya Purana]
