Another stotra called Datha Kshamapana stotram has been earlier translated by me and is available in




1.Dathathreyam thwam namami praseedha,

Thwam sarvathma , sarva kartha na Veda,

Kopyantham they srava devaddhi deva,

Jnatha ajnathan  may aparadhaan kshamaswa,


I salute Dathathreya to please him,

For he is the soul  and doer  and ,

Is the God of Gods at the end of Vedas,

And he would pardon mistakes done knowingly or unknowingly.


2.Thwad udbhawathwath  thwad dheena  adheethwath,

Thwameva vandhya  upasya aathman,

Adhapi moudyath smaranam na they may,

Krutham kshamaswa  Priya krun mahathman,


Due to your birth and your partiality for the oppressed,

You are the only one  to be served and worshipped,

But if due to my being confused , I am not remembering you,

Oh dear and great God, please pardon me.


3.Bhoga apavarga pradhamathma bandhum,

Karunya sindhum, parihaya bandhum,

Hithaya cha anyam parimargayanthi,

Haa maadruso nashta druso vimooda


Hey ignorant one,  who  is blind and sees only wealth.

The fulfiller of pleasures,  the closest dear one to us ,

The sea of mercy  and the joy giving relative,

Does not visualize anything other than our good,


4.Na math samo  yadhyapi papa Kartha,

Na thwath samo  adhopi  hi papa harthaa,

Na math samo anyo dayaneeya aarya,

Na thwatha sama kwapi dayalu varya.


There is no one equal to me in doing sins,

There is no one equal to you in destroying sins,

There is no gentleman who is as pitiable as me,

And there  is no one who is as merciful as you.


5.Anadha nadhosi  , sudheena bandho,

Sri sanukampamrutha poorna sindho,

Thwad pada bhakthim thava dsasa dasyam,

Thwadheeya manthrartha drudaika nishtaam.


6.Guru smruthim, nirmala budhi madhi ,

Vyadhi kshayam , may vijayam cha dehi,

Ishartha sidhim , vara loka vasyam,

Dhanannavrudhim , vara go samrudhim,


You are the lord of the orphans, good friend of the oppressed,

The God who is the complete sea of the nectar of pity,

And the devotion to your feet , the service to your devotees,

And also  constant meditation on your mantras and their meaning,

As well as learning Vedas from Gurus  and a pure and clean heart,

Would bring down illnesses , result in victories,

And also result in fulfillment of all desires, attract all world,

Daily increase of money   and lead to plentiful wealth.


7.Puthradhi labdhim , ma udharathaam cha,

Deheesa  may chasthvabhayam  cha sarvatha,

Brahmagni  bhoobhyo  nama oshadeebhya,

Vache namo  vak pathaye cha Vishnave.


Please give me blessing  in getting sons and other wealth,

And be generous in helping me to get blessings of Lakshmi,

For I have completely surrendered to you for ever,

My salutations to Brahmas , fire , earth , herbs ,words , lord of words and Vishnu.


8.Santhasthu bhoornassiva manthareeksham,

Dhyouscha abhayam  nosthu disa shikaya,

Aapascha vidhyuth  paripanthu deva,

Sam sarvatho  may abhayamasthu santhi.


Let there be peace in the earth and in the nature,

Let me  surrender  to the apex  of that God,

And let that god give water through  Rain,

So that everywhere there would be safety and peace.
