Oh Good of death, I consider you as good as a grass,
Come near my feet, I will step on you.
1.I would place the name of Velayudha in my mind,
I would meditate and pray the wise people who chant the Vedas,
Oh bad fool , did you forget what happened to your crocodile,
When the God protected the elephant which shouted, “Primeval source”
2.He is the one who swallowed the Alahala Poison,
I know well the great problems faced by you when you tried to take the soul,
Go away four thousand miles and away from here, I tell you,
I would come before you as The God Harinarayana.
