Harikesavanallur Muthaiah Bhagawathar
Jaalandhara Supeetasthe, japaa kusuma baasure
Balarka koti prabhe, baale, paripaalasau
Bhava roga nivarini, Bhaktha jana paripaalini,
Nava shakthi swaroopini, nadha Harikesa rajni
Oh Goddess who sits on the good Jaalandharasana*,
Who shines in the flower of meditation.
Oh Goddess who shines like billions of young suns, please take care of me.
Goddess who cures the disease of birth and death,
Goddess who looks after all her devotees,
Goddess who has the forms of nine Shakthis,
The goddess of music of Harikesa.
*Jalandhara Bandha (Sanskrit/Hindi: जालन्धर बंध, Jālandhara Bandha), is the chin lock, one of the three internal locks or Bandhas described and employed in Hatha Yoga. It is performed by dropping the head slightly so that the chin is tucked close to the chest and the tongue pushes up against the palate in the mouth.
