Narayaniyam Astnavatitamadasakam MEaning:

Oh Lord Krishna, My salutations to you, how can anyone know,
Your real form which is not even understood by devas and great sages,
Which is far, far away from not only words but also mind,
And which is the power by which the entire visible world shines,
And this world which shines in you was born out of you and will merge with you,
And is the form of yourself while you stand separately from it. ॥ 98.1 ॥

See Also  Vakratunda Stotram In English

Though you do not have birth, actions, name and also different attributes,
You assume all of them independently for the good of the world through Maya,
Taking into your control, knowledge and ignorance though you are formless,
Due to your being innately miraculous, you shone in various forms,
And Oh God, I salute you who is full of divine joy and the form of salvation. ॥ 98.2 ॥

Your form is not animals, birds, human beings, devas, asuras male or female,
Your form is not wealth, actions, caste, characters, existing and not existing,
So say the people who know you and they say that you are the one who would,
Still remain at the end, when we keep on rejecting things as not yourself,
And you are the one recognized by several sayings of the Upanishads,
With great difficulty by your definitions as the divine supreme being,
And you shine in that form and my salutations to you. ॥ 98.3 ॥

As an image reflected in Maya you create the entire universe employing,
Intellect, ego differences, the senses of sound, touch form, taste and smell,
As well the five elements, the eleven sense organs, as projected in a state of dream,
And at the time of deluge like a tortoise drawing its legs within himself,
Using your soul which has the power of destruction you destroy everything,
By drawing all of them within you and then you shine as the divine joy,
In the all-enveloping terrible darkness but without any relation to the baser qualities,
And My salutations to you, who is having such properties. ॥ 98.4 ॥

Oh God, According to all people of different and diverse opinions,
You are the only primeval cause, imagined as the ultimate soul, also
You are the primeval sound, the result of all actions and the indivisible atom,
And the Vedanta philosophy describes you as the spirit, the supreme being, intelligent,
As well as the soul and you carry out the creation by a mere glance,
And Oh Lord Krishna, my salutations to you. ॥ 98.5 ॥

Existing or nonexisting or being problematic to decide whether existing or nonexisting,
Is this rope of ignorance which is assumed and identified as the snake by many,
And this world is similar to that as it appears as existing to all of us,
And this same illusion, under the presence of the tide of the divine mercy,
When we slowly start understanding the implication of Vedic philosophy,
Becomes the great axe of wisdom and helps us to clear the forest of life,
And Oh God who is everything, my salutations to you. ॥ 98.6 ॥

When we think about the principle of the world, like the Gold in the case of ornaments,
Like the clay in case of pot and other earthen vessels, the Brahmam in you,
Which is without any second in this world shines lustrously,
And like a man realizing the truth after waking up after the dream,
And like the realization about the rope after the daybreak,
When ignorance is removed, the real truth in the principle,
Would become clear and shine, Oh Krishna my salutations to you. ॥ 98.7 ॥

The reason for the sun shining, fire burning and wind blowing,
And gods like Brahma doing the jobs like sacrifices allotted them efficiently,
Is the fear that they have in you and all of them were appointed,
In the places that they occupy by you and Oh Krishna,
Who is the great God controlling everything, our salutations to you. ॥ 98.8 ॥

Using the three yogas namely Jnana, Karma and Bhakti, I sing about you,
Who creates this world inlaid with the three Gunas Sathva, Rajas and Thamas,
Who is the meaning of the sacred sound Aum formed by three letters,
Who is the unified form of three Gods namely Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva,
Who has the form that is praised by three Vedas Rik, Yajur and Sama,
Who knows the three states of human beings namely waking up, sleep and dream,
Who has taken incarnations in the three ions namely Thretha, Dwapara and Kali,
Who has taken measurement of the three worlds in his Vamana incarnation,
And who does not change in the three periods namely past, present and future. ॥ 98.9 ॥

Victory to the spotless and taintless form of yours which is true and pure,
Which is ever wakeful, which is not related to anything,
Which is divine and does not have any wishes whatsoever,
Which is without any second and without any emotions,
Which shines due to the presence of all good qualities,
Which does not have a cause and does not have any emotions,
Which does not have any end, which shines with infinite glory,
Which is innately present in the minds of great sages practicing Samadhi,
And which has incomparable joy within it, which has a shining form. ॥ 98.10 ॥

May not, your very powerful wheel of time with twelve spokes,
Three hundred and sixty teeth and which rotates with immeasurable speed,
And which drags forcefully this world and which cannot be stopped by anyone,
Cause any harm to me, who does not have any support except your feet,
Hey Lord Vishnu, Hey ocean of mercy, Hey Lord of Guruvayur,
Please save me from all diseases and give me protection. ॥ 98.11 ॥
