[Prayer to Hanuman]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Akshadhi rakshasa haram, Dasa kanda darpa,
Nirmoolanam, Raghuvarangri saroja bhaktham,
Seetha vishahya Ghana dukha nivarakam tham,
Vayo sutha, galitha bhanu maham namami. 1
Who killed Rakshasas like Aksha,
Who destroyed the pride of the ten headed,
Who is the devotee of lotus feet of Rama,
Who removed the great sorrow of Sita,
And who is the son of Wind God.
Maam raksha raksha paritho ripu dukha punjaan,
Vasyam kuru trijagatham vasudadhi paanaam,
May dehi dehi mahatheem vasudhaam sriyam cha. 2
Please save, save me from the hands of enemies,
Make my slave the three worlds and their kings,
And please give, give me wealth and fame.
Bandhanam cchedhaya muktha kapi varya, namosthuthe. 3
Salutations o the great monkey, please cut of my bondage and release me.
Dushta rogaan hana hana Rama dhootha namosthuthe. 4
Salutations to the emissary of Rama, kill, kill serious diseases.
Vidweshino maaraya thwam trinethrathmaka sarvada. 5
And Kill all those who hate me, Oh, son of three eyed one.
Ghoraan upadhravan nasaya, Aksha suranthaka. 6
Killer of the asura called Aksha, destroy awesome troubles.
Sathroon samhara maam raksha, sriyam dathwacha maam hara. 7
Save me by killing all my enemies and protect me by giving wealth.
Puthra pouthradhi sahitha, sarvaan kamaan vapunuyath. 8
He would realize all his wishes along with his sons and grandsons.
