Vainatheya Vaahanam Bhajeham
By Kalyani Varadarajan
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Vainatheya vaahanam bhajeham,
Vairi vidhwamasana karam varam
Dhanavandhakam Daridhri poshakam,
Dasa palanonmukham, sumukham
Sri Ranga kshethralankaram,
Sri Ranganatha sahacharam,
Sri vilasam srithollasam,
Chira thara yaso dhayakam lasad vasam
Pranavakara Vimana sthitham,
Phani raja sayinam Ranganatham,
Mani makutojjwalam marakathapam,
Guna bhooshanan kalyani varadam
Saptha prakara madhyalayam,
Sada amala godhaa hrudayalayam,
Sadaa karuna varunalayam,
Sangeetha anandam thejomayam.
I sing about him who rides on Garuda,
Who is the blessed one who kills all enemies.
He who kills all asuras, who looks after poor people,
Who is interested in looking after his devotees and who is pleasant faced.
He who is the ornament to the temple of Sri Rangam,
Who is always with the lord of Sri Rangam,
He who shines with Lakshmi, who enjoys company of devotees,
He who gives permanent fame and who is surrounded by light.
He who sits below a Vimana of the shape of Om,
Who is Ranganatha lying down on the king of snakes,
Who shines in the crown made of emeralds,
Who is having good conduct as ornament,
And who s the one who blesses Goddess Lakshmi.
He who is in the middle of seven street precincts,
He who is always in the heart of the pure Godha,
He who is always surrounded by merciful heart,
He who enjoys music and is full of shine.
