|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||











I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Hari who is personified as Lord of Badharikashrama, he is divine personified at his will from the superior abode Sri Vaikundham, in order to perform various pastimes residing on the Bhoo/Earth, he is Lord of Lords, he is Jagathpathi who is Lord of Universe and its living beings, he is the source of Chathurvargaphala/Dharma, Arththa, Kama, and Moksha, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Hari who is personified as Lord of Badharikashrama, he eradicates miseries and sorrows of the worshiper, he is the provider of contentment, peace, nourishment, and courage, he is the source of supreme bliss, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Hari who is personified as Lord of Badharikashrama, He eradicates all the sins of the worshiper, he is the provider of Kaivalya/permanent bliss and emancipation, renunciation, beatitude, perfect isolation, detachment from worldly matters, and absolute unison with the supreme soul, he is the commander of three worlds and performs essential functions of the Universe, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Hari who is personified as Lord of Badharikashrama, he resembles to Kalpatharu/wish fulfilling creeper and he fulfills all that desired by the worshiper, he is divine personified as essence of compassion and kindness, he guides us to safely cross the ocean of Samsara, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Hari who is personified as Lord of Badharikashrama, he is eulogized by all the deities, he is eternal, he is Vibhu who is embodied as sacred rivers, he is personified as most desirable and charming  in order to perform various amusements, he is primoridial, he is beyond time, he is Acchyutha who is unconquerable and he has colossal form, he is mystifying, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Hari who is personified as Lord of Badharikashrama, he resides on the peak of Gandhamadhana, he is personified as Nara and Narayana, he resides on the middle of Badharikhanda which is packed with the trees of berries, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Hari who is personified as Lord of Badharikashrama, he eradicates the enemies of his companions, he is all pervading, he is impartial, he has great splendor, he is absolute Bhramam.  The above are the glorious verses praising the splendor of Lord of Bhadharikashrama, whoever reads or listens to it during the hours of dawn with intense devotion and faith followed by austerities, would be relieved from all the sins and remain peaceful.
