1.Vadana dhyuthi jitha soma,
Vasudha manasa kaama,

Vidhu koti sangaasa,
Pahi papa vinasa,
4.Vara thyaga raja nutha,
Varija sambhava Thatha,
Pahi maam shubha charitha.
Wishing for good things
1.To him whose face wins over the moon,
To him who is desired by the mind of goddess earth,
To him who is leader of exuberant men,
Please protect me , Oh Rama.
2.To him who pleases the mind of daughter of Janaka,
To him who killed the pride of son of Jamadagni,
To him who is like god of rain to the thirsty,
Please protect me , Oh God whose feet is worshipped by sages.
3.To him who cuts the ties of bondage,
To him who resembles billions of sun gods,
To him who is the god of all gods,
Please protect me, killer of sins.
4,To him who is worshipped by Thyagaraja,
To him who is the father of Lord Brahma,
To him who is the greatest doer of good,
Please protect me , Oh God with good story.
