[Here is great prayer meant to destroy severe sufferings addressed to Lord Dattatreya written by a great Maharashtrian saint Thembe Swami Maharaj who was born in the year 1854 AD.]

1. Sripada, Srivallabha thvam sadaiva,
Sri datha asmath praha devadhi deva,
Bhava grahya, klesa haarin Sukirthe,
Ghorath kashtat uddarasman namasthe.

You are always one with divine feet and the consort of Lakshmi,
And Oh God of Gods who is being called Dathathreya,
Oh one with great fame, Oh remover of problems, remove my accumulated Karma,
And I salute you and request you to lift me up from severe and painful problems.

2. Tvam no matha, tvam Pitha, Adhipa sthvam,
Traata Yogakshema, Krutha sad guru stvam,.
Tvam sarvasvam, no prabho Vishva Murthe,
Ghorath kashtat uddarasman namasthe.

You are our mother, father and our owner,
You look after our daily problems, You are our good teacher,
You are everything Oh Lord, Oh Lord of the world,.
And I salute you and request you to lift me up from severe and painful problems.

3. Papam, Thapam, Vyadhim, aadhim cha dhainyam,
Bhithim. klesham thvam, haraasu thva danyam,
Trathaaram na veekshishaath jurthe,
Ghorath kashtat uddarasman namasthe.

You destroy sins, pain, diseases, longing, poverty,
Fear and problems and I have not seen anyone,
Else who can solve all these problems,
And I salute you and request you to lift me up from severe and painful problems.

4. Na anya thratha naa api dhathaa na bhartha,
Twatho deva, thwam sharanyoka hartha,
Kurva Athreya, anugraham purnarathe,
Ghorath kashtat uddarasman namasthe.

I do not have any other protector nor one who gives nor a lord,
You are God, you are the one who protects those who surrender to you,
So please do son of Athreya and shower blessings, Oh God who is desire less,
And I salute you and request you to lift me up from severe and painful problems.

5. Dharme prithim, san mathim, deva bhakthim,
Sat sangapthim, dehi mukthim cha bhukthim,
Bhava sakthim cha, akhilananda murthe,
Ghorath kashtat uddarasman namasthe.

Hey lord of the supreme and complete joy,
Give me liking to Dharma, good thoughts, devotion to God,
Interest in good company, salvation and satisfaction of all needs,
And also power to get over problems of day to day life,
And I salute you and request you to lift me up from severe and painful problems.

Phala Sruthi

6. Shloka panchakam yethadhyo,
Loka mangala vardhanam,
Prapathen niyatho bhakthya,
Sa sri Dhattha, priyo bhaveth.

Daily recitation of these five verses,
Would lead to increase of good to all world,
And the devotee who following all
And the devotee who does it following all rules
Would become very dear to Dathathreya.

Ithi Srimath paramhamsa parivrajakacharya, srimad Vasudevanand Saraswathi
Swami virachitham "Ghora kashtodhara stotram" sampoornam.

Thus ends the prayer to end severe sufferings by the great sage Srimad Vasudeva Saraswathi.
