Apamarjana Stotram

Apamarjana Stotram
(The prayer for cleaning mind and body)

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Aparjana stotram is a prayer addressed to various forms of Vishnu as well as Sudarshana Chakra to clean our body and mind of various sickness as well as afflictions by evil spirits as well as planets . This occurs in the Vishnu Dharmothara Purana ,. At the beginning of the prayer Saint Dhalabhya requests sage Agasthya for the benefit of all living beings, the method of getting cured of all the sicknesses and afflictions. Sage Agasthya then teaches him this great prayer. The Sanskrit text of this stotram along with an introduction and commentary is available in
http://www.ibiblio.org/sadagopan/ahobilavalli/apamarjana.pdf
I have consulted this great work before making my own translation.
Apamarjana Kavacham from the Vishnu Dharmothara Purana has been recently translated by me and can be found in
http://stotrarathna.blogspot.com/2011/01/apamarjana-stotram.html
This Kavacha apart from giving the Armour also gives the apamarjana manthra for doing the meditation.)

Let there be peace , auspiciousness , let all discomfort be destroyed,
By the recitation of this prayer and let all bad horrible things be destroyed by its auspiciousness.

81.Yadasya duritham kinchith thath kshiptham lavanarnave ,
Swasthyamasthu shivam chasthu Hrishikesaya keerthanath.

Let the singing of the praise of Hrishikesa sweep away,
Whatever little problems are left out in to the salty ocean,
And let peaceful existence and auspiciousness result.

82.Yethath rogadhi peedasu janthunaam hitha michathaa,
Vishnu bhakthena karthavvyya mapmarjanakam param

If the minds of beings want to get freedom from diseases,
The devotee of Vishnu should as a duty recite this apamarjana prayer.

83.Anena sarva dushtaani prasamam yaanthya samsaya,
SArva Bhootha hitharthaaya kuryath thasmath sadaiva hi.

Without any doubt whatsoever this prayer would ,
Completely remove all sorrows caused by wicked happenings,
And so this prayer has been told for the sake of the good of all beings.

84.Kuryath thasmath sadiva hyim nama ithi,
Yidham stotram param punyam sarva vyadhi vinasanam,
Vinasaya cha rogaanaam apa mruthyu jayaya cha.

When you are performing this prayer always add “Om Nam”,
For the most holy divine prayer and ensure destruction of all diseases,
And by destroying such diseases avoid untimely death.

85.Idham stotram japeth Santha kusai sammarjayeth suchi,
Vyadhya apasmara kushtadhi pisacho raga Rakshasa.

This stotra should be recited with a pure and calm mind,
Sitting on a seat of Durba grass and would effectively remove,
All diseases, epilepsy, leprosy, and attack by devils , ghosts and Rakshasas.

86. Thasya parswa na gachanthi stotramethathu ya padeth,
Varaham, Naarasimham cha vamanam Vishnumeva cha,
Smaran japedh idham stotram sarva dukha upasanthaye.

All these ills do not dare to go near to the one who recites this prayer,
Meditating on Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana and Vishnu,
And this prayer would also ensure the removal of all sorrows.

Ithi Vishnu dharmothara purane dalbhya pulasthya samvadhe ,
Apamarjana s totram sampoornam.

Thus ends the prayer of cleansing which occurs in Vishnu Dharmothara Purana
In the discussion between Agasthya and dhalbhya.
