Agnir Uvacha:-

Fire God said:-


1.Vishudha, vijnana   ghanam puranam ,

SAnathanam   viswasrujaam   pathim  gurum,

Anekam yekam   Jagadheka Nadham,

Namamyananthasritha   Sudha budhim.


Oh God who is extremely pure  with  deep wisdom, primeval,

Who has no beginning , who is the lord of creator  of universe  and teacher,

Who is many who is alone , who is the one Lord of the world,

I salute that endless  pure   and wise being.


2. Maya  mayim sakthim upethya viswa,

Kartharam  uddhishya  rajopayuktham,

SAthwena   chasya   sthithi hethum ugram ,

Atho thamobhir  grasithara  meede.


Approaching  the universe  which is  full of  power of illusion,

Aimed    at the doer    along   with great  emotion,

That being  who is the cause of  existence ,

Then swallowed   the darkness  and I praise him.


3.Avidhyaya   Viswa vimohithathma,

Vidhaika    roopam   vithatham  trilokyaam,

Vidhyasritha  thathwath   sakalajnam  eesam,

THwa vidhyaya  jeevam aham  prapadhye.


The soul   who is confused    about the universe, with ignorance ,

Tried to attract   that form to   the three worlds ,

But that God   with his wisdom was the knower of all  principles,

And I salute  that    soul   using  that knowledge.


4.Bhakthecchaya aavishkrutha   deha yoga,

Maabhoga   bhogarpitha yoga yogam,

Kouseya   peethambara   jushta sakthim ,

Vichithra sakthyashtamayeshta  meede.


That  union  of the body which   was revealed  by the desire of the devotee,

And that great pleasure  due to the union of  unions  was dedicated to that pleasure,

With that   usual power dressed in yellow    silk cloth,

And I praise that  wonderful  power   which  was  very rapid.


Phala Sruthi


Sri Narayana Uvacha


Ya tethad   prathar uthaya   srunothi  sravayech suchi,

Agni theertha kritha snanam   phalam   aapnothya  asamsayam


If this prayer   is heard , after we get up in the morning  in a clean state,

Without any doubt we would get the effect of bathing in Agni theertha(Badrinath)


   Ithi Skande Maha purane  Vaishnava Khande   , Badrikasrama Mahatmye  ,

                Agni kritha   Bhagawath  Sthuthi sampoornam.


This ends   the prayer to God Vishnu   which was composed by fire God ,

Which occurs in the Chapter on “Greatness of Badarikasrama    in the book

Of  greatness of Vishnu which is a part  of the great Skanda  Purana
