Datha prarthanaa chathushka Stotram
Sri Vasudeva Saraswathi
1.Samastha dosha soshanam, swabhaktha chitha thoshanam,
Nijasritha praposhanam, yatheeswaragrya bhooshanam,
Thrayee siro vibhooshanam pradarsithaartha dhooshanam,
Bhaje athri janga thaishanam vibhum vibhoothi bhooshanam.
1.I salute the son of Athri , who is detached , who is the Lord decorating himself with sacred ash,
Who destroys all shortcomings , who makes the mind of his devotees joyful,
Who nurtures those who surrender to him , Who is like an ornament for great sages,
Who has three heads and who clearly points out the false nature of things.
2.SAmastha loka karanam , samastha jeeva Dharanam,
SAmastha dushta maaranam kubudhi shakthi jaranam,
Bhajat bhayadri tharanam bhajat kukarma varanam harim,
Swabhaktha tharanam , Namami Sadhu Charanam.
2.I salute that Lord who leads us in proper way , Who makes his devotees cross Samsara,
Who is the cause for the entire world, Who is the support to all beings ,
Who destroys all evil people, who is the one who steals away evil thoughts,
Who on praying helps us to cross mountain of fear and who is the Hari who removes karma due to evil acts.
3,Namayaham mudhaspadham nivarithaakhila padam,
Samastha dukha thapadham , muneendra vandhya they padam,
Yadanchithantharaa madham vihaya nithya samadam,
Prayanthi naiva they bhidham muhur bhajanthi chaavidham.
3.Oh Lord , who is worshipped by great sages, those who meditate on your feet ,
Without pride do attain perpetual divine joy and do not gom
This world again and again and so I salute your feet oh lord,
Which is store house of joy, which prevents all dangers , sorrows and pains.
4.Praseedha sarva chethane , praseedha budhi chethane ,
Swa bhaktha hrun niketane sadaamba dukha shathane ,
Thwameva may prasoormathaa thwameva may prabho pithaa,
Thwameva me akhile hitharthadho akhila kathoavithaa.
4.Be pleased with all beings, Be pleased with those who are greatly intelligent,
Oh Lord who lives in the heart of your devotees, make me not to give sorrow to my mother,
You are the mother who gave birth to me Oh Lord , you are my father,
You are the one who have good of all the worlds in your mind,
And the one who protects every one from all sorrows.
