English

Oh Lord Guruguha, born in the lake Sharavana, come quickly and guide me. You are attended on by Vishnu, Cupid, Brahma, kings, and Lord Shiva.

You are contemplated in the hearts of those devoid of passions. You are worshipped by the celestials and the sages. The song of the great Tyagaraja, oh Kumara, you dispel the three kinds of afflictions. Your divine feet are extolled by the serpent king, and you take delight in the religious rituals performed by the righteous ones. You, the great Yogi, take delight is the minds of sages who perform Yoga and Rajayoga.
