Kamalaja dayithashtakam

Kamalaja dayithashtakam

Translated  By

P.R.Ramachander

(This is the prayer  addressed  to Goddess  Sarada  of Sringeri. Kamalaja  here refers to Lord Brahma  and Dayitha  is consort  I,e It is a  stotra addressed   to  Goddess  Saraswathi  ,In the text of the stotra it is clearly brought   out that  it is a prayer  addressed to Goddess  of Sringeri. I found this in  the stotra compilation called “Jaya  Mangala Stotram”  by Brahmasri Sengalipuram  Anantha Rama  Deekshithar .SrI Deekshithar  mentions that   it is written by Swami Vidyaranya Theertha  of Sringeri . But in Stanza seven of the stotra  it is indicated   that  saints like  Vidhya Theertha  were  seen  worshipping her.This leads to the surmise   that  it was  written by some Disciple of Vidhyaranya  Theertha. The web site of Sringeri Mata   does not make   any reference to this   great  stotra. )

1.Srunga kshama brun nivase suka mukha munibhi sevyamanagri padme,
Swangachaya vidhoothamrutha karaSura rat vahane vaksavithri,
Shambhu srinatha mukhyamara vara  nikarai modatha  poojyamaane,
Vidhyam shuddhamscha budhim  kamalaja  dayithe sathwaram dehi mahyaam.

1.Please Immediately  give me knowledge  and  pure intellect  oh  darling of the lotus  born,
Who lives   in the  Sringa girim, whose lotus like feet are  worshipped  by Sukha and other sages,
Who  by the luster  of her body   removed  the  moon as well as  the steed  of king of devas, who gives  power of speech,
And who is  with great joy  worshipped   by Lord shiva  . Lord Vishnu and important devas.

2.Kalyaadhou  Parvatheesa  pravara  sura gana prarthitha srouthavarthma,

2.Please Immediately  give me knowledge  and  pure intellect  oh  darling of the lotus  born,
Who  was consecrated in Srunga giri  by  the great  Sage Sankara  ,  who was an incarnation of  Lord Shiva,
Who took that  form at the request  deva groups  in the beginning   of the  Kali age  ,
For conducting   the  Yagas   as prescribed   in the world by the  Vedas.

3.Please Immediately  give me knowledge  and  pure intellect  oh  darling of the lotus  born,

Also made  me respect devas, Gurus,  Brahmins and made  to have firm devotion to the   collection of manthras.

6.Please Immediately  give me knowledge  and  pure intellect  oh  darling of the lotus  born,
Oh Mother, I have never ever  with devotion worshipped  properly your  lotus like feet  with flowers,
I am  not fit   to sing about your divine  feet    using good verses as I am an idiot  as well as not active,
But  you  are showering me  who does not serve you  with mercy  like a mother   towards   a  dumb child.

7.Santhyaadhyaa sampadhi   may  vithara shubhakareer nithya thad binna bhodham,

Desire  for getting salvation  , OH goddess   whose lotus feet was  worshipped  by sages like  Vidhya theertha.

The  throne of Sri Chakra   in the temple    on banks of thunga river.
