Brahmanandam , parama sukhadham , kevalam Jnana moorthim,
Dwandwatheetham gagana sadrusam thathva masyadhi lakshyam,
Yekam nithyam vimala machalam sarvadhee sakshi bhootham,
Bhavaatheetham tri guna rahitham sad gurum tham namami. 1
I salute my great Guru, who is immersed in divine bliss, who is divinely happy,
Who is unalloyed wisdom , who is beyond anything that is two,
Who is like a sky , whose aim is “I am that”, who is one, who is forever ,
Who is pure, who is immobile , who is witness for everything,
Who is beyond emotions and who is beyond the three fold qualities.

Salutations to Guru, Salutations to sandals of Guru
Salutation to the divine, Salutations to the Sandals of the divine ,

3.Krishnaveni pancha ganga yudhistham.
Sri Padam, Sri Vallabham , Bhaktha hrudastham,

Vande vidhyaam saleeneem sankrunamthm.
I salute the one with pure knowledge ,who destroys at the end,
Who is the mingling of Krishna river as well as the five Gangas,
Who is Sri Padha, the consort of Lakshmi and lives in mind of devotees,
And who is of the form of the sandals of Dathathreya.
