Devotion & Strength

श्लोक

शान्तं शाश्वतमप्रमेयमनघं निर्वाणशान्तिप्रदं

ब्रह्माशम्भुफणीन्द्रसेव्यमनिशं वेदांतवेद्यं विभुम् ।

रामाख्यं जगदीश्वरं सुरगुरुं मायामनुष्यं हरिं

वन्देऽहं करुणाकरं रघुवरं भूपालचूड़ामणिम् ॥ १ ॥

Shloka

Sri Ram, Universal Lord, Raghu's chief line be,

He the kings' crest-jewel, I am adoring reverently,

He store-house of compassion, dispeller of sins be,

He in the human form appearing on earth does be.

Greatest of gods, knowable through Vedanta be,

Even Brahma, Shiv Sesa rever him sincerely,

He supreme peace contributor, eternal does be,

Beyond cognition, sinless, all-pervading truly.

नान्या स्पृहा रघुपते हृदयेऽस्मदीये

सत्यं वदामि च भवानखिलान्तरात्मा ।

भक्तिं प्रयच्छ रघुपुङ्गव निर्भरां मे

कामादिदोषरहितं कुरु मानसं च ॥ २ ॥

Lord of the Raghus who deep in my heart be,

There is only you, no other yearning earnestly,

I speak the truth and You are the Spirit actually,

You in heart of all being do dwell most certainly.

The Crest-jewel of Raghus, please do grant me

The devotion to your feet I am longing solemnly,

And free my mind from culpabilities thoroughly,

Like worldly desires, cravings which abound be.

अतुलितबलधामं हेमशैलाभदेहं

दनुजवनकृशानुं ज्ञानिनामग्रगण्यम् ।

सकलगुणनिधानं वानराणामधीशं

रघुपतिप्रियभक्तं वातजातं नमामि ॥ ३ ॥

To the son of Wind-God, the beloved devotee,

The devotee of Sri Ram, I am saluting sincerely,

To the monkey chief who source of virtues be,

Foremost amidst wise, I am bowing reverently.

His body is shining as a gold mountain brightly,

And he infinite strength possesses undoubtedly,
