Oh Lord Viúnu! Drive away (my) immodesty, quell (my) mind and dispel the mirage of objects of worldly pleasure. Spread out compassion (in me) for all beings. Make me cross the ocean of worldly existence (to the shore, viz. mokúa) (1)

Ù¸¨¸Ù¸¡¸‰¸½™þÞؙ½ ¨¸›™½ ——2——

I bow at the lotus-feet of viúïu (the Lord of Lakúmi) of which the celestial Gañgá is the pollen (or honey), which afford the enjoyment of their fragrance and stand out as 'Sat', 'Cit' and 'Ánanda' (as the true Brahman) and which cut off the terror and pain of birth in this world. (2)

Oh! Protector! Even with the difference (between You and me) passing off, I become Yours but You do not become mine. Indeed (though there is no difference between the waves and the ocean) the wave belongs to the ocean but nowhere (never) does the ocean belong to the wave. (3)

Oh Lord who held aloft the mountain and who are the younger brother of the mountain-breaker (Indra)! Oh Lord who are the enemy of the race of demons and who have the Sun and the Moon as your eyes! When You, the mighty Lord, are seen, does not the setting aside of birth (removal of samsára) come about? (4)

Oh Supreme Lord! I am frightened by the suffering caused by birth (samsára). I am fit to be (I must be) saved by You who, coming down in the form of incarnations as fish, etc., always protect the world. (5)
