Sri Mantra Raja Pada Stotram



(This stotram was contributed by a friend.)

Vritthotphulla visaalaaksham vipakshakshayadeeksheetam 
Ninaadatrasta vishvaandam Vishnu ugram namaamyaham (2)

He who is having big and round eyes, He who has taken a vow to kill the enemies, He who by His fierce roars is shaking the entire world, to such a ferocious Lord, I offer my salutations. 

Sarvairavadhyataam praaptam sabalaugham ditessutam 
Nakhaagraih sakaleechakre yastam veeram namaamyaham

He who with His sharp nails tore to pieces the asura, the son of Diti who could not be killed by anyone along with His large armies. To such a valourous person, I offer my salutations. 

Paadaavashtabddha paataalam moordhaavishta trivishtapam 
Bhuja-pravishtaashta-disam mahaavishnum namaamyaham

I offer my salutations to Maha Vishnu, whose feet touch the nether lands, whose forehead touches the heaven and whose hands spread in all directions. 


Jyoteem shyakrendu nakshatra- jvalanaadeenyanukramaat 
Jvalanti tejasaa yasya tvam jvalantam namaamyaham

He after whose luster the luminary bodies, the Sun, the Moon, the Stars and Fire are effulgent and are shining, to that resplendent One I offer my salutations. 

Sarvendriyairapi vinaa sarvam sarvatra sarvadaa 
Yo jaanaati namaamyaadyam tamaham sarvatomukham

He who knows everything, all the time, and at all places, without the help of the senses, to such a primal Person who has faces in all directions, I offer my salutations.

Naravat simha vachhaiva roopam yasya mahaatmanaha 
Mahaasatam Mahaadamshtram tam Nrisimham namaamyaham

To that Form of the Lord, which is half man and half lion, complete with the mane, the canine teeth, to such a divine Lord Nrsimha, I offer my salutations

Yannaama-smaranada bheetaa bhootha bhetaala raakshasaah 
Rogaadyaascha pranaschhanti bheeshanam tam namaamyaham

By the mere thought of whose name, devils, demons, asuras get frightened, acute diseases get cured, to such a frightening One, I offer my salutations. 

Sarvopi yam samaasritya sakalam bhadramasnute 
Sriyaa cha bhadrayaa jushto yastam bhadram namaamyaham

I offer my salutations to the Lord, the repository of good things, worshipping whom all the people are able to obtain auspicious things. 

Saakshaat svakaale sampraaptam mruthyum satru gananvitham 
Bhaktaanaam naasoyed yastu mrityu mrityum namaamyaham

He who is "Death to Death" and He who destroys death and hosts of enemies of the devotees by arriving at the right moment, to Him I offer my salutations. 

Namaskaaraatmakam yasmai vidhaayaatma nivedanam 
Tyaktaduhkhokhilaan kaamaan asnutam tam namaamyaham

I bow down to the One by offering obeisance to whom in the form of Ones own self, people get rid of all miseries and obtain their desired objects. 

Daanabhootassvatah sarve hyaatmaanah paramaatmanah 
Atoham api te daasah iti matvaa namaamyaham

All the living beings are, by nature, servants of the Supreme Being, I am prostrating to You, with the awareness that I am also for the same reason, Your servant. 

Sankarenaadaraat proktam padaanaam tattvam uttamam 
Trisandhyam yah pathet tasya srividyaa yocha vardhate (2)

The meaning of the words had been explained by Lord Siva out of affection. Whosoever reads this hymn with faith, thrice a day (at Sunrise, mid-day and evening) would have a great increase in knowledge, longevity and prosperity.

      I do not have the devanagri version of this stotram. This was given to me by a friend. I shall find out and send it to you, if she has it.
