Shukra Sthuthi to God as divine truth


Shukra Sthuthi   to God as divine truth

By
Sage  Shukacharya

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander



(When king Parikshith asked  sage Shukha, why God does the  creation,  before explaining it to him, the sage  prays, the divi9ne truth. Bhagawatha Skanda 2   chapter 4   slokas  12-23)

1.Nama parasmai purushaaya  bhooyase,
Sadhudhbhava sthana Who has nirodha leelayaa,
Graheetha  sakthi  trithayaya  dehinaam,
Antharbhavaayanu upalakshya varthmane

Salutations   to that Purusha  again,
Who has accepted  the job of creation, upkeep and destruction,
By   the the  three  different of power  that he has taken,
And who is  present  in all being in a form that  cannot be seen.

2,Bhooyo nama  sadh vrujina cchidhe asathaam,
Asambhavaayaa  akhila   sathwa  moorthaye,
Pumsaam  puna  paramahamsya aasrame,
Vyvasthithaanaam anumrugya dhaasushe.

I again salute him  who removes  sins of good people,
Who  is the impossible  power present  everywhere  as truth,
Who grants  the state that  is requested  by those who have subdued  their senses,
And who shines   in the form of   all the devathaas.

3.Namo namosthesthu  Rishabhaaya  Sathwathaam,
Vidhoora kaashtaaya muhu  kuyoginaam,
Nirastha samyaa athisayena radhasaa,
Swadhaamani brahmanani  ramsyathe  nama.

Salutations    to him who grants divine wisdom  to pure devotees,
Who is far away and unapproachable to  people with dirty mind,
Who  shines with incomparable  power in  divine truth,
And who himself  is  the form assumed  by Brahmam.

4.Yath  keerthanam   yath smaranam  yadheekshanam,
Yath vandhanam   yachravanm  yadarhanam,
Lokasya sadhyo   vidhunothi  kalmasham,
Thasmai   subadhra   sravase   namo nama

Singing  about him, thinking  about him , doing  penance   about him,
Saluting  him, hearing  about him  and  worshipping  him,
Would  put an end to   the bad aspects of the world,
And  I salute and salute the God who has this  great fame.

5,Vichakshanaa   yacharano upaasadhanaath,
Sangam  vyudhasyo abhayatho    antharaathmana ,
Vindathi  hi brahma  gathim  gatha klamaa,
Thasmai   subadhra sravase namo nama

Those  who have great wisdom , By worshipping  that feet,
Win over   the desire for pleasure  in this and other world,
And attain   the  way to the  Brahmam very easily,
And  I salute and salute the God who has this  great fame.

6.Thapaswino   dhanaparaa   yasaswino,
Manaswino  Mantha  vidha   sumangalaa,
Kshemam   na  vindathi  vinaa   yadarpanam
Thasmai   subadhra sravase namo nama

If the sages  by  offering the  result of their penance and worship him,
But keep on doing   penance  , charity , yoga  ,chanting of manthras,
Good behavior,   religious activities  that bring them fame, They  will ,
Never get   the  spiritual  well being  at any  time,
And  I salute and salute the God who has this  great fame.

7.Kiraatha hunaandra pulindha  pulkasaa,
Abeera kanga  yavanaa  khasaadhayaa,
Ye anye  cha papaa  yadhupaasrayaarayaa,
Shudhyanthi  thasmai  prabha vioshnave nama.

Even the hunters , foreigners  , barbarians , sinners,
Cowherds  , Greeks  and those   who  are  dirty in appearance,
And even other sinners , by doing   service to Gods,
Become pure and I salute   that   great god.

8.Sa yesha   athmaathmavatthaam  adheeswaraa,
Thrayeemayo   dharma maya sthapomaya,
Gathavyalee kairaja sankaraadhibhi,
Vitharkhya  liongo  Bhagawaan  praseedathaam.

That god   whom  the  thoughtful controller of senses,
Know as the  power within them , is the god of all,
He is the form of Vedas, dharma and the result of penance,
Even though    your very pure form is difficult ,
To comprehend    even for  gods like  Shiva and Brahma,
Let   that  God shower   his   grace on me.

9. Sriya  pathir ,   yajnapathi,   prajapathir,
Dhiyaam   pathir , loka pathir, Dharaa  pathi,
Pathir   gathischaandhaka  vrushnee saathwanaam,
Praseedathaam  may bhagwan  sathaam  gathi  .

Let lord of prosperity  , lord of Yajna , lord of peole ,
Lord of the givers  , lord of the world, lord of earth,
Who is at present  in the form of Krishna , the lord.
Of the    devotees  of Andhakas  and Vrishnis ,
And who protects  all good  people shower his grace on me

10.Yadhangrya anya dhyana samaadhi dhouthaaya,
Dhiyanupasyanthi hi  thathwamaathmanaa  ,
Vadanthi  chaithath   kavayo  yadharucham,
Same  mukundho  bHagawaan  praseedathaam.

By  meditaing  on that god   with love, the sages,
With their  purified  thought   understand the soul,
And they describe it as per   the nature  of their knowledge,
Let the  Mukunda   become  pleased with me.

11,Prachodithasa  yena  puro  saraswathi,
Vithanwathajasya satheem   smrutheem hrudhi,
Swalakshhanaa   pradhrabhooth kilaasyatha,
Same  rishinaam rishabha praseedathaam.

Initially God   made the  thought of creation appear in Brahma,
And by his own  urging , you made   the faultless Vedas,
Arise from his   in the form of Goddess  Saraswathi,
Let That God who is the greatest sage  be pleased with me.

12,Bhoothair  mahadbirya yimaa puro vibhur,
Nirmaaya seethe    yadhamushu   purusha,
Bungthe   gunaan  shodasa  shodasaathmaka  .
So  alankrusheeshta bhagwaan vachaamsi mama.

The God who is everywhere   using the   five eleme3ts,
Creates the  beings of the world and   exists  in  them,
As Unseen power and knows about them through,
Sixteen karanas* and let that God  decorate my words

*Ten organs+five pranas aqnd mind   are the sixteen karanas

Reply of Rugmani to lord Krishna


Reply  of  Rugmani  to lord Krishna

Translated  by
P.R.Ramachander



(once  Lord Krishna teased  his wife Rugmani that he  is not at all a suitable husband  to her.This prayer  is her reply   skanda 10 .chapter 60 sloka 34-46)

1.Nanvevamethadh aravindha  vilochana ha,
Yadhvai  bhavaan  bhagwatho  asadhyasi  vibhumna,
Kwa  swe mahimnya bhiratho bhagavaamsthyadheesa,
Kwaaham   guna  prakruthi  rajna graheetha  padhaa

Oh lotus eyed one , You were telling  the truth only  ,
When you  said I am not  very suitable to you, for,
You are spread everywhere, lord of all  powers  and,
Lord of Trimurthis and I am only  one worshipped  by the ignorant.

2.Sathyam bhayadhiva gunebhya urukramaantha,
Sethe   samudhra upalambana  mathra aathmaa,
Nithyam  kadhhendra ganai kutha  vuigrahasthwam,
Thwath  sevakair nrupa Padham vidhutham  thamondham.

Since you are in the deep difficult  to approach pockets of Gods,
When you say I am  in the midst  of ocean,   you seem to be right,
And since you live fighting  with sense organs, your saying that  you have,
Great enemies  also is right and since you  keep  away  even royalty,
There is no wonder in your saying , that you  are not the king?

3.Thwath padha padmamakarantha jusghaam muneenaam,
Varthmaa sphutam  nrupa shubhir  nanu  dhurvibhavyam,
Yasmaadha loukika vehitha meeswarasya,
Bhoomamasthave hitha madho  anu ye  bhavantham.

When you said  your path is difficult   and come with you ,
Too is difficult ,you are right, for the path of your devotee  saints,
Is also difficult and  the people   who   are  cow like,
They cannot   even think about it and so there is no ,
Wonder  that  your path   is very difficult.

4.Nish kinchano nanu bhavaan  na yathosthi  kinchidh,
Yasmai balim  balibhujopi  haranthya jaadhyaa,
Na thwaa vithanthyasoothrupoanthaka maadya thaadaa,
Preshto bhagawan  bali bhujamapi thepi thubhyam.

You said you are poor and that you like  only the poor,
But devas  like Brahma who are worshipped  by the kings of the world,
Are  worshipping you who is poor and only  those  who are proud of their wealth,
And who do not know  how far is death from them are the  only ones,
Who do not search you and to all others, they  all love you.

5.THwaam vai   samastha  purushartha  maya phalaathma,
Yadh vaanchayaa sumathayo   visrujanthi   kruthsnam,
Theshaam  viho samucitho   bhavatha samaaja,
Pumsa   sthriyaascha rathayo   sukha  dukhinorna

You are  the end result  of all things like Dharma, wealth ,
Passion as well  as  salvation and people   who want to have you ,
Sacrifice all  these and they  are  most suitable  to relate to you,
And that  is proper  marriage and not relation of   those ,
Who want to live   a married life  with pleasure  and sorrow.

6Thwam nyastha bandha munibhir gathio thanu bhava,
Aathmaa athmadascha   jagatha mithi may  vruthosi,
Hithwaa  bhavadh broova udhiritha kala vega,
Dasthaa sisho abhja bhavanaakaptheen   kutho anya.

You  are  the soul of the universe and you give  the devotees yourself,
Say the sages who are full of love and who have  sacrificed  everything,
And just by  the movement  of your eye lids  , the  post  and power,
Of all devas  including  Shiva  and Brhama  will cease  and so I married you.

7,jaadyam vachasthava  gathagraja yasthu  bhoopaan,
Vidhraavya saarnga  ninadhena jahartha  maam thwam,
Simho yadhaa swabala mesa pasoon swabhagam,
Thebhyo  bhayaadh  yadhu dadhim  saranam prapanna.

Oh Lord , chasing  away the kings  who had  assembled  there,
Just by hearing  the twang, just like  a lion  chasing away ,
Other animals before catching its feed, you  robbed  me ,
Who is yours and so your saying   that    due  to the fear,
Of those  kings  only you are  staying in Dwaraka  sea.

8.yadh vaanchayaa  nrupa   shikhaamanayonga vainya,
Jaayanthanaahyusha gayaadhaya eikapathyam,
Rajyam visrujya  vivasur vanam ambujaaksha,
Seedanthi theanu padaveem tha  yihaa sthithaa  kim.

When you tell that ladies who follow  you  are put  in,
Great difficulty  , it is meaningless because  kings  like,
Prathu ,Bharatha, Yayaathi  .Anga , gayaa, gave away,
Their  kingdoms and chose the troubles  of forest to live with you.

9.Kaanyaam  srayetha  thava padha   saroja  gandham,
AAgraaya sanmukharitham  janathaapa  vargam,
Lakshyaalayam  thwavai ganayya  gunalayasya  ,
Marthyaa  sadhoru bhaya Martha viviktha  drushti.

You said  I could have chosen a  better  person than you,
Which lady would prefer men always   afraid of death ,
Leaving you  who is the store house  of all good qualities,
Which lady  who have  experienced the  perfume of your feet,
Which is praised by learned people and which removes,
The sufferings of your devotees, would  choose another  husband?

10.Tham  thaw anuroopamabhajam  jagathaam adheesam,
Aathmanamathra cha  parathra cha  kama  pooram,
Syaanme thavangri tharanam  syoothib hir bramanthyaa,
Yo vai bhjantham upayaathyanya thapa vargaa

Deciding you are my proper groom , I surrendered to you,
Who is lord of universe, the soul of all and one  who fulfills,
The desire of everyone and caught  in this wheel of birth and death,
Let  your feet  which removes  the  misunderstanding that   soul is body,
And which always  protects  all devotees, be my protection.

11.Thasyaa sruyarachyutha  nrupaa  bhavathopadishtaa,
Sthreenaam   gruheshu   kharagosva bhidaalabyathyaa,
Yath  karna moola mathi karshana nopayayadh,
Yushmath kadhaa mruda virincha sabhasu  geethaa

Oh achyutha  , you    felt that  I should have chosen   some other king,
Let the kings who are happy to live like   donkeys, bulls  , dogs, cats ,
And servants  become the husbands  of ladies  who have  not heard,
About  the praises of you which are  sung  in Shiva and Brhama lokas.

12.Thwaksmasruromanakha kesa pinadha  mandhar,
Mamasaasthi   raktha krumi vit kapha  pitha vaatham,
Jeevachavam  bhajanthi  kantha madhir   vimooda ,
Yaa the padabja  makarandha majigrathi  sthree.

Only those  ignorant women who have never  enjoyed,,
The perfume of your feet, would bother  to  have  ,
A husband filled with meat  , phelgum ,  bile , and gas,
And covered  with skin,  hair and nail and live like living corpses.

13,Asthwambujaaksha  mama they   charanuraaga,
Aathman  rathasya mayi  chanathiriktha drushte,
Yarhyasya   vrudhaya uaatha rajo  athimathro,
Maameekshase thadhu na paramanukambaa.

You  Said  that you  do not have  any special  interest  in ladies,
Even if you are at peace with your soul  and not  interested in me,
Let me have  love to your feet and I am sure, As God in beginning of creation,
You would seeme who is prakruthi    with  Regal sight  and,
I consider  it as a great blessing  that I may be able to serve you.  (

Deva Sthuthi To Lord Narayana praying for help to defeat Vruthrasura(from Bhagawatham)


Deva  Sthuthi To Lord Narayana  praying for   help to defeat Vruthrasura

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

Image result for devas praying

The prayer  has two parts
Part1 Devas praying  Lord Vishnu for his appearance (skandam 6 chapter  9   sloka   21-27)
Part 2   Devas praying Lord Vishnu   who comes before them   to help  defeat Vruthrasura  (skanda 6  chapter10, slokas 31-45)

1.Vaivambaraagnyapkshithaya  sthilokaa,
Brahmodhayo   ye   vayamudhwijantha,
Haraama yasmai bali mantha kosou,
Bhibhethi  yasmaadharanam   thatho na.

The five elements, the worlds  which are  united in them,
Lord Brahma   and we devas, who are  the reason of creation,
Are scared  of Time  which is the  protector   of all, but that time,
Is scared of Divine God and we   surrender  to that God.

2.Avismitham tham pari poorna  kamam,
Swenaiva laabhena samam  prasaantham,
Vinopa sarpathya param hi baalesa,
Swalangulenaathithithrthi sindhum.

Leaving him  who never wonders, who is completely desirable,
Who is equal to all  and who is very peaceful,
If a person  surrenders to some one else, he is ignorant,
And is like  one who tries  to cross the sea catching dog’s tail.

3.Yasyoru srunge jagathimswanaavaam,
Manur yadhaa abadhya thathaara  durgam,
Sa evanassthwashtra bhayaadh durathaadh,
Thrathaa aasrithaan varicharobhi noonam.

Vaivasatha manu,   escaped  the problem of Pralaya,
By tying   the boatof earth, on the horn  of the lord,
Who took the form of a fish and let that  God,
Save us who are his dependents from fear  of Vruthra.

4. Puraa  swayambhoorapi samyamaamba-,
Syaadheernavaatho rmiravai karale  ,
Yeko  aravindhaath pathitha stha thaaraa,
Thasmaadh  bhayaadh   yena sa  no asthu paara.

Once in the  sea  water  of the world which was,
Rocking severely, Lord Brahma  sitting on lotus flower,
Which arose   from Belly  of Lord Vishnu fell down,
Let the god who saved him   from that danger  save us also.

5.Ya yeka eeso  nija maayayaa  na,
Sasrjja   yenaanu sujaamaa   viswam,
Vayam  na yasyaapi   pura sameehatha,
Pasyaama  lingam prudhageesamaanina .

6.Yo na sapathnairbrusa mardhyamaanan,
Devarshi  thiryangnyashu nithya   yeva,
Kruthaavathaara sthanubhi  swa maayayaa ,
Kruthwaa aathma saath pathi  yuge yuge cha

7.Thwameva devaa vayam  athma  daivatham,
Param pradhaanam  purusham   viswamanyam,
Vrujaama sarve saranam   saranyam,
Swaanaam  sa no daasyathi sam mahathaa.

That god who created  using his  power of Maya,
That  god due to whose blessings we  are engaged in creation,
That   god who was   the creator before all,
That god  whom we  are not able   to understand

That god, who though  is forever  existing,
Who has taken birth    among   devas ,
Sages ,men  and baser  beings and ,
Has saved  us from the   trouble  of enemies

Who is    the god  of all beings, divinely important,
Purusha   as well  as prakruthi(nature)  all over the universe,
And who is engaged in creation , nurture  and destruction,
We are   surrendering to that god, let good come to us  


When the devas prayed like this  , Lord Vishnu  appeared  before the devas  and they  Saluted him   and again   started  praying him.

1,Namasthe  yajna veeryaya,
Vayase   utha  ne nama,
Namasthe hyastha  chakraaya,
Nama supooruhruthaye

Salutations  to god  who shows himself through Yajna,
Salutations to him who as form of time destroys all,
Salutations to him who uses chakra against evil people,
Salutations to the god who exhibits  his qualities.

2.Yathe  gatheenaam thisrunaam,
Yeesithu  paramam Padham,
Naarvaacheeno visargasya ,
Dathar vedithu mrhathi

Oh God  who is creator, you created the  three  worlds,
And though we   are your creations  surprisingly ,
We  are not able   to understand  your divine state,
And possibly only due  to your mercy we can know it.

Om salutation    to God  Narayana, Vasudeva, primeval purusha, great purusha. Who gives us great  experiences, the divinely auspicious one, divinely good one  , divinely merciful one, The one who alone is  support of universe, , the lord of all worlds, the god of all, the lord of goddess  Lakshmi, Who appears  in the mind   at the opening   of  the greatest ascetic, tHe one who has   given up everything, the one who by divine  athma  yoga and samadhi penetrated  the  very clear  dharmic   state a great  sage, the one who is  greatly open minded, and who  of his own accord  is available those  open minded  seekers  of Athma and grants them  the state  of divine ecstasy.

4Dhoorava bodhe  iva   thavaayaam vihaarayogo,
Yadha sarano asareera idham  anavekshithaasmath,
Samavaaya athmanaiva avikriya  maanena,
Sagunamaguna srujasi  paasi  harasi .

WE feel that  at no time we would understand  your sports of the  world,
Because   without depending on any one, without a body or help,
You  who has  and has  not properties,  taking care  not to make  any change,
Are  creating , nurturing   as well  as destroying  this  entire universe.

5.Adha thathra bhavan , kim deva datha  vadhiha,
Guna viusarga  pathitha, paara  thanthrena ,
Swakrutha kusalaakusalam  phalam upadhadhathi,
Aahoswith aathmaarama upasama  sheela,
Samancha sadarasana udhaastha ithi  ha  vaava na  vidhama.

You just like soul  are subject to working  of nature and depend  ,
On  outside things,  and whether  you suffer  the effect of your own good and bad actions,
Or you  are not dependent on soul and are   without any actions,
And never   have your own form and   and are acting  only  as  an inactive,
Witness,  we do  not know

6.Na hi  virodha ubhayam  bhagavathya pariganitha ,
Guna gane easware anavagaahya  mahaathmye
Arvacheena vikalpa vitharka  vichara,
Pramanaa bhasa kutharkka sasthra kalilaa anthakaranaa.
Srayadhurava grahavaadheenaam  vivaadhanavasrara,
Uparatha samastha  maayaamaya kevala  yeva,
Athmaayaam anthardhaya konwartho,
Durghata iva bhavathi swaroopa dwayaabhavath.

In you whose greatness  cannot be known and who has endless  greatness,
These  two are not contradictory. Those modern  debaters  who have  a confused mind,
Due to science which is based on   wrong premises, assumptions, evil tricks cannot understand you.
When your Maya  ceases to work, everything would end and you  alone remain but  when your
Power of maya works, there is nothing  which is impossible, In your lonely form as  well as your
Universal form, without  problems to your form  , you  alone work.

7.Sama vishama matheenaam  matha mnu sarasi  yadhaa  rajju ganda sarppadhidhiyaam.

To those who have equal  or un equal knowledge, you are  experienced  in differing ways , just like in a dim light a   rope can appear  as a garland or a snake.

8,Sa eva hi  puna  sarva  vasthuni vasthu swaroopa   sarveswara,
Sakala jagath karana karana bhootha sarva prathyagathmathwath sarva gunaa-
Bhasopalakshitha yeka eva paryavaseshitha.

Only god is  the truth  in everything.You , who is the god of all  is   the divine cause,
In  all things for which you are  the creator,Because you  are spread  within inside,
The world exists   as a  proof of yourself and at the end  what remains  would be god only.

Hey killer of Madhu, once  the divine  wise people  who are  your  great   devotees   taste a drop of the ocean of your nectar    like  greatness, due   to the ever ebbing flowing  joy of their  mind,  forget  all that was  heard  as well as seen  , forget all  experiences of pleasure  in this and outside world and find permanent peace   in god   who is the dear friend of all beings and who is all their soul. The good people  would always be busy  in praising you, who is their divine aim and would serve your lotus like feet , attaining  which no one ever comes back  to this Samsara.

Jala   charaakruthibhi  yadhaaparaadham ,
DAndam  danda dhara dadhartha evamenamapi ,
Bhagawan  jahi   thwaashtram  itha   yadhi manyase.

Oh God  who is  the soul of the  three  worlds,
Who lives in all  the three  worlds, who measured,
The three world by his three  steps , who is  the ruler  of three worlds,
Who is the giver  of joy to the three  worlds,
Though Asuras are  a part of you, determining  ,
That it is  not time    for their growth, taking incarnation,
Among devas , menand other beings, you  punish them.
Like that  , if you think , it is appropriate,
Please kill this asura   , who is son of thwashta.

Hey father , Hey grandfather, we who are your  devotees,
As well as dependents, due to   your constant  meditation,
Our heart  has got tied with your lotus  like feet,
You showed yourself to us  and you  made us yours,
Please stifle the  great paion in our minds,  by giving us,
Your nectar  like words along    with  a pretty smile,
Which is an amalgamation of of love  as well as mercy.

12.Adha bhagawan   thava  asmaabhi  akhila jaga-
Dulpathi  sthithi laya nimithaayamaana dhivya mayaa,

Saakshina aakasa  sareerasya saakshaath,

Syaadh visphu lingaadhi bhiriva hiranya  rethasaa.

Oh God , You are one who entertains  yourself,
With creation,  nurture   and destruction of the universe.
You are  inside every being as Brahmam   as well  as Athma,
And outside   as Prakruthi and you  the cause   and one  who shines in them,
Are as clear as the sky and witness  to their experiences.
Before you who is the  divine  soul as well as Brahmam,
Who knows the heart of every one  are like  raging fire,
And what   shall we who are   sparks of fire  tell you?

13.Atha   yeva swayam   thad upakalpaya asmaakam,

Because of that, please know   why we  have come,
In search of your feet , surrendering  ourselves to it
Because you  save  beings  from  problems of travel ,

Poem
14. Adho  eesa jahee thwaashtram,
Grasantham   bhuvana  thrayam,
Grasthaani   yena  na  Krishna,
Thejaamsysthrayudhaani   cha

Oh Lord  you , who are in control,
Of all the   three  worlds,
Please kill that  Vruthra because,
He has swallowed all our power  and weapons.

15.Hamsaaya    dahra nilayaaya  , nireekshakaaya,
Krishnaaya mrushta  yasase  nirupakramaaya,
SAth samgrahaaya  bhava  paandha nijaasramaaptha-,
Vanthe   parishta  gathaye haraye  namasthe.

To the lord, who is eternally  pure, who lives in the sky  of our heart,
Who is the witness  of everything, who has form  of forever  divine joy,
Who is greatly famous, who is eternal , who is the   support  of the good people,
And who is the end of all  who are caught in Samsara, Our salutations

Lord Hari was pleased  with this prayer  and advised Devas to   approach  Sage Dadichi, get his body and with that  get made aWeapon called Vajrayudha  , so that  Indra can kill Vruthra
