O Lord of Kalahasti, You who protect those who take refuge in You, and are the form of Samira (air, one of the five elements), please protect me, oh Rajamauli.
You are the vital force of Indra, Brahma and Vishnu. You are the god of wind, Anila. You illumine ether (Akasha), earth (Bhumi), water (Salila), and fire (Agni).
You are the Lord of Jnanaprasunambika, and are enshrined in the Dakshinakailasa Kshetra, to the pride of devotees. Your lotus-like hands shower the desired boons on all those who pray to You. You are compassionate toward the afflicted, and destroyed Cupid-Manmatha and the Anjanan-ignorance. You are Pashupati, the Lord of all beings, and received the Jnanopadesha from Guruguha. You are the embodiment of Existence, Knowledge and Bliss. You have the fame of being worshiped by a low-caste hunter.
