PRAYER TO LORD VISHNU
Shanta Karam Bhujaga Shayanam.
Vishvadharam Gagana Sadrusham.
Megha Varnam Shubhangam.
Lakshmi Kantam Kamala Nayanam.
Yogibhir Dhyana Gamyam.
Vande Vishnum Bhava Bhaya Haram,
Sarva Lokaia Kanatham.
O’ Thou who reposes in peace on the nice coiled serpent.
The sacred lotus springs from thy navel, O’ Lord.
Thou artwork the universe, the heavens.
Blue as a cloud, Thou artwork benediction.
Who Brahma the creator and Rudra the Destroyer,
And the gods of heaven, rain and wind reward with songs divine.
Whom the chanters of Samaveda eulogise observing the foundations of prosody and scriptures.
Whom the yogies, engrossed in meditation see clearly within the thoughts’s eye.
Whose limits are unknown even to the gods and demons.
