Sri Narayana Sthuthi – Lyrics and meanings



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||










I shall meditate upon supreme Lord Narayana who is Vishnu, he eradicates extreme fears and anxieties of worldly existence, he is the Lord of the Universe, he is serene, he reclines on the serpent Anantha in milky ocean, he is Padmanabha who has lotus flower on navel, he is the Lord of Lords, he is the source of Universe and its living beings, he has the complexion of dark clouds, he has divine mesmerizing limbs, he is beloved consort of Goddess Sri Lakshmi, his beautiful eyes has the resemblance of lotus flower petals, he is surrounded by illustrious Yogis and Rishis,  I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Narayana, who is eulogized by Lord Bhrama, Rudra, Indhra, Varuna,  and Maruthganas, with sacred hymns, he is eulogized by Veda , Vedanga, and Upanishadhs, he resides in the hearts of illustrious Yogis, he is worshiped by Suras and Asuras as well, Oh!  Rama, Oh! Purushoththama who is flawless, he has embodied as Narahari, he is Narayana, he is Keshava, he is Govindha,  he holds majestic flag that has the symbol of Garuda, he is store house of virtues, he is Dhamodhara, he is Madhava who is beloved consort of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, he has personified as Krishna who has the complexion of dark clouds, he is Kamalapathi who is the consort of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, he is illustrious among the Yadhu clan/Lord of Yadhu, he is Seethapathi who is beloved consort of Goddess Sita, he is Sripathi/consort of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who symbolizes wealth and prosperity, he holds Goddess Mahalakshmi on chest, he is Vaikundapathi who resides in the supreme abode of Sri Vaikundham, he is the Lord of living and non-living creatures, Oh! Lakshmipathi who is consort of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, kindly protects us.  The glorious scripture Srimad Ramayan describes Lord Rama’s expedition through the dense woods where the illustrious Rishis and Sages immerses in meditation, Rama killed demon Mareecha who was disguised as golden deer, Goddess Sita’s abduction, Jatayu’s death, Rama’s conversation with the monkey king Sugreevah, Vali’s death, Hanuman crossing the vast ocean, Hanuman burning the city of Lanka into ashes, Rama killed Ravana and Kumbhakarnna in the vicious battle.  The most splendid scripture Srimadh Bhagavatham describes nectar like various passionate sports of Lord Krishna who was born as son of Devi Devaki, he augmented happiness and welfare on the sacred land of cowherds, he killed the female demon Poothana who was disguised as beautiful young woman, he elevated Mount Govardhana, he crushed the pride of Kamsa, he destroyed the clan of Kauravas, and he protected the sons of Devi Kunthi. Hail to Lord Krishna who has personified as the protector of cows and cowherds/ Gopala, he resembles to precious gem Choodamani, he is surrounded by young maiden of cowherds of Vraja, he is adorned in rich fragrant musk and Kasthoori on forehead, precious gem Kausthubha on the chest, precious pearl on nose and marvelous bangles, he holds flute on hand, he is smeared in highly fragrant sandalwood paste all over the body, he is adorned in pearl decorated ornaments on neck.  I shall meditate upon Lord Govindha, whose face has the luster of full moon, his beautiful face resembles to fully blossomed  lotus flower, he is adorned in feathers of peacock on attractive hair locks, he is adorned in Srivathsam and Kausthubham, he is attired in majestic yellow silk garment, his majestic form is worshiped by the lotus like eyes of young maiden of cowherds, he is always surrounded by cows and cowherds, he is Govindha who takes immense pleasure in playing melodious music on flute, he has divine limbs adorned in various precious ornaments.  I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Vishnu who is wielded in divine Chakra, he is adorned in magnificent crown and earrings, he is attired in majestic yellow silk garment, his eyes has the resemblance to lotus flower petals, he is adorned in Kausthubham and Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi on chest.  Oh! Devadeva, you are my mother and father, you are my relative and companion as well, you are my intellect and wisdom, you are my strength and wealth, Oh! Devadeva you are everything to me.

Oh! Varanane/lovely faced one,  Oh! Manorame/most desirable one, reciting the sacred names of Lord Rama, as Sri Rama Rama Rama would be equivalent to recitation of thousands of marvelous names of Lord Rama.
