Morning prayer to Subrahmanya
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Shadananam Chandana lepithangam, Mahorasam Divya mayura vahanam, Rudrasya soonum Suraloka nadam, Brahmanya devam saranam prapadye
My salutations to God of Brahma,
Who has six faces,
Whose limbs are coated with sandalwood,
Who is the essence of everything,
Who rides on the holy peacock,
Who is the son of Rudra,
And who is the chief of the world of Devas.
Hey Swaminatha karunakara deena bandho, Sri parvatheesa muka pankaja padma bandho, Sreesadhi deva gaa poojitha pada padama, Vallesanada mama dehi karavalambham.
Oh Lord of Lord Shiva,
Oh store house of mercy,
Oh God who is nearest to the poor,
Oh God who is nearest to the lotus faced Shiva,
Oh God whose feet are worshipped by devas led by Vishnu,
Oh God who is Lord of Valli,
Please give me a helping hand.
