Madhava Sthuti

Madhava Sthuti
[Prayer to Madhava]
By Kadathanattu K. Padmanabha Variar
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[I found this very meaningful and musical prayer in a book named Sri Guruvayurappan stotra mala published by Devi Book stall, Kodungallore.]

1. Sarnga Dharinam Pankajekshanam,
Pankhajananam pangu soshanam
Sankara priyam Mangala pradham,
Yadhu kulothamam, Madhavam Bhaje

I sing about Madhava, who is the a great member of Yadhu clan,
Who holds the conch called Saranga, who has eyes like lotus flower,
Who has a lotus like mouth, who takes care of the handicapped,
Who is dear to Lord Shiva and grants auspicious things.

Thothra dharinam, Partha saradhim,
Sathru nasanam, sathwatham harim,
Yadhu kulothamam, Madhavam Bhaje

I sing about Madhava, who is the a great member of Yadhu clan,
Who rides on a bird, who is the soul of three lettered "om",
Who holds a stick to drive cattle, who was the charioteer of Arjuna,
Who destroys his enemies and is Lord Vishnu in sathva form.

Bala sahodharam, balavathaam varam,

Yadhu kulothamam, Madhavam Bhaje

I sing about Madhava, who is the a great member of Yadhu clan,
Who shines like the Sun, Who is the place of stay of Lakshmi,

Who has the form of a man and an enemy of asuras.

Who makes the calves tired by making them play, who looks after the calves,
Who is the enemy of Kamsa, who has the form of a swan,
Who gave salvation to Bheeshma, who removes all drawbacks.
