Deva Deva Kalayami
By Swathi Thirunal
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Raga Mayamalava goula
Deva deva kalayami they,
Bhuvana thraya nayaka,
Bhuri karunaya mama,
Bhava thapam akhilam,
Varaya rema kantha.
1. Parama hamsaligeya pavithrethara
Ghora Duritha hara, charitha dinamanu Sravana niratha,
Parijana nithara kamidartha paripoorna lolupa
Bhoori manogna panga.
2. Varana dussaharthi varana bahu nipuna,
Puruhuthaamara poojitha bhava charana yuga,
Virachaya shubamani visadha nabhee Jatha,
Bharathee sakrutha nuthi parama thushta Bhagawan
3. Jatha roopa nibha chela janmarjitham mamakhila,
Pathaka sanchayamiha vaaraya karunayaa,
Dithi jathi vidhalana dheena bandho maamavaa,
Asritha vibhudha saala Sri Padmanabha soure.
Oh God of Gods, I wish to do,
Service to your lotus like feet.
Oh Lord of the three worlds,
Show all your mercy on me,
Oh consort of Lakshmi, remove,
All problems of this life.
1. You are worshipped by very many great sages,
Destroy great sufferings and hear to their complaints,
Of those who hear your stories always,
You fulfill all the desires of your devotees.
2. You who exhibited great expertise in removing the great Misery of the elephant,
Your feet which removed their sufferings were worshipped by Indra and other Devas,
You became pleased by the prayer of Brahma, who was born in your navel,
Be pleased by my prayers and bless me with well being.
3. Oh God be pleased and obliterate all my accumulated sins,
With blessings and mercy and protect me,
As you vanquished the asuras and their clan,
In support of the greatly oppressed devas,
Who took refuge in you?
