Victory to Lord Guruguha, who is adored by all Gods beginning with Vishnu. Oh Mind, constantly contemplate on the fact that you are the Cidanandanatha.
He is the originator of different diversified forms of worlds. He manifests as five elements, the named and formed ones. He is the mighty sun, destroying the darkness of ignorance, is the bestower of spiritual knowledge, and is the Maheshvara. He is the divine Kalpaka Vriksha for the afflicted ones, he who bears the sacred river like Mandakini, he who is adept at granting happiness to the heart of His devotees. May my Guru bless me.
He is the substratum of this illusory world. He who is to be invoked through the mantra beginning with Ka and ending with Ma, he who resides in the center of the Malini Chakra, he who is meditated upon as the swan representing the Ajapa Mantra, he who is an expert at obliterating the result of Maya the illusion, he resides in my heart, which is like the thousand-petalled lotus. He who enjoys the nectar of mellifluous music, he provides shelter and boons to Madhava and others. He whose Brahmasvarupa is veiled by Maya, he whose beauty exceeds that of crores of Cupids, he who shines as the light atop the tower of the heart of devotees, he who vanquished the proud Shura and others, his place of abode is worshiped by kings of Mayamalava Gaula Desha et al. He who shines as surrounded by Vishnu and other gods, he has expounded the real truth of Pranava to His father Mahesha.
