Partha Saradhi Sthavam
The prayer to Partha Saradhi( Charioteer of Arjuna)
1.Pangajaksha , gatha srungalam puzha kadathi ninne nija puthram,
Appen kidaavine viranjeduthu vasudevan kamasannu kodutha naal,
Amgreenaa pozhuthu kondu chadudan uruttina akhila ranaangane,
Sangadopa samanaaya parthannu radham kidaaduga thudanginaan.
Oh lotus eyed one on the day when the chains were broken , you
Who were the real son was made to cross the river, that girl baby was speedily,
Taken back and was given by Vasudeva to Kamsa, within the time of dawn,
You rotated the chariot in the war field of the world and for ,
Destroying the sorrow of Arjuna, you started driving his chariot.
2.Ketti vaar kuzhal vakanju, pinnil alakeshu peelikal thoduthu,
Poompttu kondu vadivodu uduthurasi haramittu vana malayum,
Pottaninja nidila thadathil udal parthu partha radham methya ,
Chammatti mushtiyil murukki ninnaruli, mishta deivam upasmahe.
After combing anf tying the pretty hair, , after tying peacock feathers in the hair,
Dressing up prettily with flowery silk cloth, wearing the forest garland,
Wearing thilaka on the long forehead, he saw the chariot of Arjuna,
Tied one part of whip on his hand and told him, “ You worship the God whom you like”
3.Chethazhinja chikurolkaram , cheriya thara kesa kala thothu,
Thoo nethi paadu chitharum viyarppil olivuththu pathina ghanaalakaam,
Yethuvaan abhi mukhee krutha prathi nava prathodhavalayaa mor,
Anpuththu kamapi krupaam kiritee radha rathna deepa kalikaam bhaje.
The slightly untied hair of yours defeated the small stars and the crescent,
And in the sweat coming out from your pure forehead, shines your thick hair,
And he loaded the new whip lash in to the chariot which was facing him,
With love towards the chariot of Arjuna and I worship the new gem studded lamp.
4.Noothenendhu ramaneeya phala bhoovipakidum chila manohara,
Swethapatha mrudhi thalake , radha paraaga poora parishobhithe,
Paathi chimmina vilochane vihara mandha hasa maya chandrika,
Seethale thirumukhe mano vijitha saarase, vijaya saaradhe.
In the pretty forehead similar to the new moon, which moves in the heaven,
In the white path of the earth , in the chariot which is running with great luster,
With eyes half shut and with a moon like face pervaded by moon,
With a cool face and the mind winning over everything, is the charioteer of Arjuna.
5,Thooya gharma kana bindhu sundara lalata marjuna sarothkaraal,
Paayumarjuna suyodhanaadhi pari bhoothi jatha hasithamkuram,
Saayakam muthukilelkumaaru uzhari meeyamana radha kaaya,
Maanaaya charu kabaree bharam kanivodaayar nayaka mupasmahe
With arjuna’s forehead completely filled with drops of sweat,
When Arjuna and Duryodhana sending each other arrows,
You changed the direction of chariot so that the arrow hits his back,
Oh Lord with mercy with pretty curved hair, I worship you.
6.Ardha meelitha vilochanam , vara thuranga pura khuramethoraa,
YUdha bhoomiyilurumn narum podi pozhinjazhinja kabharee bharam,
Hastha pankaja lasathprathodha madhi chitha masthu mama partha-,
Saradhya keli lalitham manognam oru vasthu yadhava kulothbhavam.
With half closed eyes , with great horses running about with its hoofs and
The tiny powder of the battle field rises covers his opened fallen hair,and then
With the shining lotus flower in his hand he takes the whip with a very firm mind,
Our Partha saradhi who is bewitching is the great one of the yadhava clan.
7.Moodu maru bhuvanam thurangarajasaa pathangaja manobala,
Vaadum aru , jayameedumaaru vijayannu , vikrama payonidhe,
Pedi poondu pada thothu maththalar atheeva nuthavar kalambu,
methodu maarariya ther kidaakina purana dhama kalayamahe.
The horses ran so that the dust that they raised covered the world ,
Which made the power of mind of Arjuna increase, Oh store house of valour,
And the army of the hundred brothers got scared and they were defeated,
And oh hero of our epics who drove the chariot over them,. I salute you.
8,Dartharashtramaya kaattil arka sutha saala moola bhuvi kathum,
Apartha pavaka shikha kalapa sameerana durantharam,
Por thalathu kuthira kulambu kilari podinja podi dhoomram,
Ather thata sthitha orathillulla paramartha vasthu pari pahi maam.
In the forest of drutha rashta the corner where Karna fights would burn,
And the flame of fire called Arjuna stimulated the bitter fight
And the dust was raised by the hoofs of horses in the battle field,
Oh thing of truth who is in the corner of the chariot , please protect me.
9.peeli chinni viriyunna veniyil maranja komala mukhabhjam,,
AA lola haara nava hema sutthra vanamalika makara kundalam,
Phala bala mathi melaninja kamaneeya gharma kanikaamkuram,
kOla manchitha radham gatham jayathi jaishnavam kimapi vaishnavam.
The pretty lotus like face which was hidden in the spreading hair,
Wearing the swinging garland , gold chain , forest garland, The ear globes,
The pretty small hair worn over the moon like forehead of his ,
Took the chariot through the curved path , hail the victory of the lord Vishnu
10.Paathu yadhava kule pirannu iniya gopa sadmani valarnnoru,
Mathru than mula nukarnnu, paal thayir kavarnnu, konnu nija mathulam,
Dhothanai mahitha pandavarkkapi cha soothanai kuru kulam mudichu,
Aadhi medhiniyil mathi vedar saramethu, pothi paripahi maam.
He was skillfully born in the clan of Yadhavas, grew up in the homes of Gopas,
He sucked the breast of his mother , stole milk and curd, killed his own uncle,
Went as emissary to the Pandavas , became charioteer and completely destroyed,
The Kuru clan and being hit by a hunter’s arrow completed his life on earth, Hail , protect me.
11.AAzhi thannil uragesanaaya mani metha mel azhakinodu chernnu
Ezhu randulakam munpil nethra muna kondu kaathu kalithaadharam,
Choozhayulla muni deva jaathi pugazhunnathum parichinodu,
Kettu aazhimaathi nodu koodiyulla kalikolumeeswara mupasmahe.
In the ocean on the great bed of serpent prettily slept and before ,
The fourteen worlds he protected using the tip of his eyes and murmur of his lips,
And heard all the praise about him by the sages as well as devas,
And I salute him with his plays along with daughter of ocean.
