English meaning

YOU, mighty Agni, gather up all that is precious for your friend.
Bring us all treasures as you art enkindled in libation's place
Assemble, speak together: let your minds be all of one accord,
As ancient Gods, unanimous sit down to their appointed share.
The place is common, common the assembly,
common the mind, so be their thought united.
A common purpose do I lay before you,
and worship with your general oblation.
One and the same be your resolve,
and be your minds of one accord.
United be the thoughts of all that all may happily agree.

We would every day praise and salute ,
The son of Shiva and Vishnu , The personification of joy,
The son of two Gods , The son of six faced Subramanya,
The Lord of Sabari mountain and the God who is peaceful.
If this armour of God Ayyappa,
Is recited daily , all problems would get solved,
Day by day as it is read all results of bad karma would get destroyed,
And Whatever we desire , we would get.

Dadhi vamana stotram

Dadhi vamana stotram

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

( Lord Vishnu took the incarnation of Vamana to kill the pride of the great Asura king Mahabali. Anointing in curd or offering rice mixed with curd are very much liked by him.
Possibly because of that this stotra is called Dadhi Vamana Stotram. I understand that there is a temple dedicated to Dadhi Vamana , near Raipur, Madhya Pradesh. The stotra in Deva Nagari script is available in
http://prramamurthy1931.blogspot.com/2011/08/sri-dadhivamana-stotram.html
An english transliterated version is available in
http://www.indiadivine.org/audarya/hare-krishna-forum/505607-ksheera-vrata-arambham-b-dadhi-vrata-daanam-c-dadhi-vaamana-jayanthi-dadhi-vamana-stotra-d-prasanna-venkata-dasaru-badami.html
There is slight differences between both these versions.)


1.Hemadri shikarakaram,
Shudha spatika sannibham,
Poorna chandra nibhanam,
Devam dwibujam, Vamanam smareth

I meditate on Vamana with two hands,
Who has the form of the peak of golden mountain,
who resembles a pure crystal,
And who has a face like the full moon.

2.Padmasanatham devesham,
Chandra mandala madhyagam,
Jwalath kalanala prakhyam,

And has the light of billions of Lightning flare.

3.Soorya koti prathikaasam,
Chandra koti susheethalam,
Chandra mandala madhyastham,
Vishnu mavyaya machutham.

He is as shining as billions of suns.

He is Achyutha , the protecting Vishnu.

4.Srivathsa kousthuboraskam,
Divya rathna vibhooshitham,

If taken in the hand and offered to the left hand ,
Is equivalent to offering of pure nectar to the holy man.

Ayyappa Pancharathnam(Tamil)
The five gems on Lord Ayyappa

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander
(I have taken this great prayer from a book called Sri Ayyappa Nithya Parayanam , a tamil book published by Giri Traders , Madras. In that book Sage Agasthya has been mentioned as the author of this great prayer. But the language used here does not seem to belong to the ancient Tamizh.)

1.Athuvitha vasthuvai , aadhi paramathmanai,
achalanai , aguna gunanai,
Amararukku athipathiyai , adiyavarkku yeliyanaai,
Hari hararkku oru mainthanai,

Perumayai ninainthu padi,
Pidathukindren nin perum koyil yeithinen,

Thathuvam anaithum oru muthiari uraithida,
Thantha sathguru nadane,
Satha madana prakasa kalasa muni viswasa,
Sabari mamalai vaasane , swamiye saranam Ayyappa.

Being a definition of Advaitha, being the primeval divine soul,
Being without any movement , Having properties but being without properties,
Being the Lord of Devas, being a simple one to his devotees,
Baeing the only son of Hari and Hara,
And appearing a true light of the pure divine Brahmam,
I do not know that the Vedas telling that your great divine plays are many,
And feeling like a mad man ,I roam about talking and singing your praise,
And I have reached your great temple prattling thus ,
And so please pardon my mistakes,
Oh great teacher , who gave me all the principles in one stamp,
Oh God with light of hundred gods of love, OH god, who is believed by sage Agasthya,
OH God who lives in Sabari mountain, Oh god I surrender to you Ayyappa.

2.Anthakarathile arul vilakkethuvai,

Oh God with light of hundred gods of love, OH god, who is believed by sage Agasthya,
OH God who lives in Sabari mountain, Oh god I surrender to you Ayyappa.
You would light the lamp of grace in darkness,
You will show us the way in the forest,
Please guard us from wandering slaughtered animals, ghosts, devils , goblins evil spirits and thieves
You would bless with prosperity those who salute you and offer sweet smelling flowers,
You would completely cure the diseases for which there is no cure,
You would remove fear of death ,Is is possible for me to remember and pray all such great deeds of yours,
Is it not your burden to receive and protect all those true devotees who climb mountains which is difficult to climb.
Oh Great teacher who has the scent of sandal , who is pretty, who is independent and who is with great sidhas,
Oh God with light of hundred gods of love, OH god, who is believed by sage Agasthya,
OH God who lives in Sabari mountain, Oh god I surrender to you Ayyappa.

3.Yenthu pugazh choozhntha kankantha giri ongi ezhum ekantha jothimaniye,
Ennuvor enniyathellam thanthu perinba mazhai pozhiyum mukhile,
Neenthariya piravi perum kadal kadathi arul nilai chekka vandha thunaye,

Oh solitary gem of light in the greatly famous golden magnetic mountain which stands tall,
Oh cloud fulfilling all the desires of devotees and rain of divine joy,
Oh help who helped us cross the difficult to cross sea of birth and gave me a life of grace,
Oh wish giving tree in the middle of the long desert called life,
Oh truth which stands without support,
Oh personification of mercy who makes the tender mango new leaf like women to be happy with us and make us live,
Oh God with moon like face who has a blessed blue , pretty and passionate face , Oh God with gem in his neck,
Please give us protection and only protection in your peaceful , tolerant presence of divine joy,
Oh God with light of hundred gods of love, OH god, who is believed by sage Agasthya,
OH God who lives in Sabari mountain, Oh god I surrender to you Ayyappa.

4.Nee yalalthu yen kuraigal ketpavarum illai,

There is no one except you to hear my problems, Oh Lord,
My mind is not stable because of the feeling that I do not have any shade whatsoever,
There are no rules for attaining you
Oh king who supports and showers his grace , even if your devotees do one thousand wrongs,
Oh God of incarnation , Oh God who loves us , Oh primeval teacher Ayyappa,
Oh pure one , Oh saint of Pamba , Oh wisdom light of Shiva,
Your parents hugged you and became sorry not being able to ask you as to whom you resemble,
You who are the son, sitting on the lap of the mother and gave out a seal like your father,
Oh God with light of hundred gods of love, OH god, who is believed by sage Agasthya,
OH God who lives in Sabari mountain, Oh god I surrender to you Ayyappa.

And you sat in all the places that you saw,
Except praying you along with music in the temple,

Oh Lord Shanmuka who spreads through the four Vedas,
Oh God who cut off the remaining Karma from us,
Oh my Lord, please wake up and come before us.

Please make me worship you in any birth that I take.
Oh my Lord, please wake up and come before us.

Oh blessed one, only you and your mercy can prevent and so rule over,
Us who are very insignificant and have not done any penance
Oh merciful one , please wake up and come before us.
