Morning prayer to Ranganatha

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

Translated by P. R. Ramachander

The Lord of Sri Rangam, one of the holiest town is seen as reclining on his snake bed.

Lakshmi nivase, Jagatham nivase,
Hrut padma vase, ravi bimbha vase,
Krupa nivase, guna brunda vase,
Sri Ranga vase ramatham mano me.

Let the Lord of Sri Ranga,
In whom Lakshmi resides,
In whom the whole world resides,
Who lives in the lotus of my mind,
Who lives in the Sun,
In whom all the mercy resides.
And with whom all good qualities are a part,
Play in my mind always.
