English translation


The great celebration of the marriage of Sita,
The great celebration of the marriage of Rama


He who is praised by Hanuman, the son of wind,
He who has a very holy story,
He whose eyes are the Sun and the moon,
He who has a very pretty body.


1.He who takes care of the needs of devotees,
He whose arrow case is full of arrows,
He who gives salvation to devotees,
He who looked after earth just like a play.

2.He who appears great to the common man and devas,
He who is desired by people who are full,
He who is black and prettiest in the world,
He who lived in Saketha (Ayodhya) Pattana.

3,.He who is the basis of all the world.
He who is the great hero of war,
He who is far away from proud people,
He who is a golden one with courage

4.He who lives in sacred books and Vedas,
He who has an incomparable body,
He who is the soul of great Ragas,
He who takes care of devotees,

5.He who is sung in prayers by Lord Shiva himself,
He who removes the problems of domestic life
He who understands the human beings,
And is sung by sage Thyagaraja.

  2. Thanks. Very good translation. God bless you. Hare Krsna.

  3. Was searching for the meaning of this song for a long time and at atlast found it... really very divine song...thank you for the English meanings.

  4. Has some translated translated such compositions in Hindi
    Since it's Sanskrit I believe this could easily done as well sung in Hindustani Sangeet mode. This way a larger section of Indian population access and appreciate the compositions of a great poet.

  5. Translation of d versus are not coinciding.
