Vadhi Raja  Theertha’s Sri Sarva Mangalashtakam

By
Sri Vadhiraja   Theetha

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Sri Vadhi Raja Theertha is a great saint from the Dwaitha system. Here is a remarkable prayer for auspiciousness  written by him. Every stanza requests   a group of gods/people/ sages, planets etc to bless us with auspiciousness. I have earlier translated a similar stotra called “Vara Mangalashtakam” By Kalidasa- http://stotraratna.sathyasaibababrotherhood.org/o20.htm )

1.Lakshmeer   yasya parigraha   Kamalabhoor soonu, Karuthman Radha,
Pouthra Chandra Vibhooshana , Suraguru  seshassayana,
Brahmandam vara   mandiram  , Sura ganaa yasya  prabho ssevaka,
Sa trilokya kutumba palana para , Kuryath sada Mangalam.

Lakshmi married him  , his son is lotus born , Garuda is his vehicle,
His grandson is lord Shiva who wears the moon who is the teacher of Devas,
Adhisesha is his bed , the universe  is his divine home, All devas are his servants,
And let that God who looks after   all  the families of three worlds, bless me always  with auspiciousness.

2.Brahma , Vayu , Giresa , Seshha , Garudaa  Devendra, kamou , Guru,
Chandar arkou varunaa analou  anupamou  Vidhyes vigneswarou,

Let Brahma, wind god .Lord shiva , Adhisesha  , Indra , Kama, Brahaspathi(Guru) ,
Chandra, Sun god  , Varuna  , fire God, Manu, Yama , Kubhera  and Ganesa,
Lord of death   , Niryathi , wind God  , Lord of rain   and Sun God,
And all  these devas with their ladies,  May bless me daily with auspiciousness.

Athri , Mareechi Kuthsa , Pulaha , Sakthi , Vasishta , Angeeras,
Mandavya , Jamadagni , Gowthama   and Bhardwaja , who are,

4.Maandathaa, nahusho , Ambareesha , sagarou  Raja prathur haihayasya ,

5.Sri Merur, Himavanscha , Mandara giri   Kailsa sailai thadhaa ,

Maasabdhaa  ruthuva sthadaiva  divasaa sandhyasthadhaa rathraya ,
Sarve  sthavara jangamaa prathi dinam  Kurvanthu vo mangalam.

The nine planets like sun God which do good  , The rasis starting from Mesha,
Stars , yogas  , thidhis   and their gods , Ganas ,
Months weeks  , days , dusk     as well as night  ,
And let all moving and non moving things daily bless me with auspiciousness.

9.Ithyethawaa Mangalashtakamidham  Sri VadhiRajeswarai ,
Vyakyatham  jagadham abeeshta phaladham   sarva asubha dwamsanam,
Mangalyadhi  Shubha kriyasu   sathatham   sandhyasu va padeth,
Darmarthaadhi   samastha   vanchitha phalam   prannothyasou manava.


This octet of auspiciousness  written by Sri Vadhi raja,
Fulfills the desires of the world  , would destroy all  bad  things of life,
And should always be read   before commencement of auspicious rituals and,
At dusk and dawn  and would bless   the devotee   with,
Dharma, wealth   and fulfill all his desires.

Hello Sir,

Can you please post the same Mangalashtakam in Sanskrit language also? It will be helpful for people like me who can read sanskrit.
Thanks & Regards,
Ranjith Kesavan

I am sorry that I cannot do ii as of now because I am extremely busy trying to bring the majesty of these prayers before people who do not know sanskrit. Please excuse me.
