Lord Maha Vishnu Stotram – Sri Venkateswara Stotram Meaning:
Victory to the lord of Venkata Mountain,
Whose blue body coated with vermillion
From the breasts of Lakshmi appears red,
And who is the lord of the universe,
With eyes reminding us of lotus flower.
Please protect me oh., Lord of Vrusha mountain,
Who is the crown jewel among all the gods,
With four faces, six faces and five faces,
And who is the ultimate treasure who loves,
Those who come and surrender to him,
Greatly trembling for having committed various sins,
And also trembling for having done hundreds of wrongs,
I have rushed speedily for surrendering to you, Lord of Vrusha,
And so Oh, Hari, please shower on me your eternal mercy,
There is none greater to you, Oh Lord of Lakshmi,
Who is merciful by nature residing on Venkata mountain,
Who blesses his devotees with much more than they desire,
And who is saluted by other gods and books that show the way.
There is no comparison to the son of Vasudeva,
Who attracts the gopa maidens,
by music from his flute,
And fulfills the desire of each gopi and gives her pleasure,
Much More than hundreds of crores of penances,
And prayers addressed to crores of similar Gods..
Become the boon giver, Oh sea of mercy,
Oh matchless doer of the good, Oh son of Dasaratha,
Oh only archer of the world, oh god with a brave heart,
Oh Rama the lord of Raghu clan,
And Oh God who is the Lord of Lakshmi.
I seek refuge in the great Rama of Raghu clan,
Whose pretty hands are held by the daughter of earth,
Who has a pretty lotus-like face, similar to the moon,
And who as a king walks at night and destroys darkness like the sun.
You are with a pleasant face, good heart,
Very easy to reach and giver of pleasures,
Along with your brothers and with a never-ending stream of arrows,
So leaving you, I would never at any time, even for a second,
Pray anyone else, Oh Jewel of the Raghu clan.
I do not have any Lord except Venkatesa,
I remember and remember only Lord Venkatesa,
So Hey Venkatesa, be pleased with me,
I request you to give me only what you like.
I was far away from your two lotus-like feet,
And have come with a wish to serve them,
And so I request and request you, Lord Venkatesa,
To please allow me to do good service to you.
Please pardon, please pardon,
Oh crest jewel of the Sesha mountain,
This ignorant sinner of the sins committed,
Due to sheer helplessness, Oh Hari.
