OM JAI JAGADIISHA HARE,
SWAAMI JAI JAGADIISHA HARE
Glory, glory to you, O Omkaara, the Supreme Lord of the worlds and destroyer of all afflictions! Glory to you, O Lord and Master of the universe! You deliver your devotees from distress in a single instant. Glory, glory...
JO DHYAAVE PHALA PAAVE,
DUKHA VINASE MANA KAA
He who meditates on you reaps the fruit thereof, the fruit of your blessings and deliverance from all heartís grief while happiness and wealth roll in into his house, and his body is cured of pain.
MAATA-PITAA TUMA MERE,
SHARANA GAHUUN MAIN KISAKII
As I have only you for my parents, who else can be my refuge? Since I have none else in the world, in whom shall I repose trust?
TUMA PUURANA PARAMAATMAA
You are the most perfect and supreme lord of all, the controller of our inmost beings, impersonal and attributeless Brahma and the supreme master of all.
TUMA KARUNAA KE SAAGARA
TUMA PAALANA KARTAA
While you are the ocean of compassion and sustainer of all, I am dull-witted (stupid), wicked and lecherous. O my beloved Lord, be gracious unto me.
TUMA HO EKA AGOCHARA SABA
You are one and imperceptible by the senses (unattainable); you are also the lord of all the vital forces in the world ( the beloved master of every being). Can I, a wicked one, face you who are so exceedingly kind?
DIINA BANDHU DUKHAHARTAA
TUMA RAKSAKA MERE
You are, O Lord of compassion (helper of the destitute) and destroyer of pain, my only protector; I am lying (forsaken) at your door; come and lift me up with your own hands.
VISAYA VIKAARA MITAAO
PAAPA HARO DEVAA
Extirpate, O Lord, the defilements of my senses (my sensuality) and all my transgressions, so that my faith in and devotion to you keep on growing and I am able to serve the saints.
TANA MANA DHANA JO KUCHA
HAI, SABA HII HAI TERAA
Whatever I have, O lord, body, intellect and wealth, is all yours. All this of which you are the owner is dedicated to you. What do I lose if I return what is not mine (or by surrendering the gifts you have given me) ?
