Narayaniyam Sadvimsadasakam Meaning:

When your devotee Indradhyumna, who was a Pandya king,
Was worshipping you on the Malaya mountain,
He did not notice the coming of sage Agasthya
Who had come there to be treated properly as a guest. ॥ 26.1 ॥

That sage Agasthya who was born out of a pot,
Became very angry at this neglect,
Cursed him who was not bothered,
To be transformed into an elephant,
And that king due to memory of God in his heart,
Lived happily, though he became an elephant. ॥ 26.2 ॥

That king among elephants along with many she elephants,
Spent his time on the Trikuta mountains in the middle of an ocean of milk,
And was having more strength than all the animals around,
Showing that your devotees attain glory wherever they are. ॥ 26.3 ॥

When due to his great strength and greatness of the divine place,
He spent all his time without suffering any hardship,
Once due to the heat of the summer and as per your suggestion,
He went to the lotus pond on the mountain slope
And enjoyed there with other elephants. ॥ 26.4 ॥

At that time a Gandharva called HuHu who was cursed by sage Devala,
To become a crocodile was living in the waters of that pond,
And he caught hold of the foot of this king like an elephant,
And Oh God, you create problems to your devotees,
So that you can bless them with great peace later. ॥ 26.5 ॥

You made the king of elephants to be afflicted by the crocodile,
And he withstood the pain and conflict for one thousand years,
Due to his greatness got by worshipping you ceaselessly,
And it was time for him to attain liberation at your feet. ॥ 26.6 ॥

Oh divine Lord, when the suffering increased, due to his,
Devotion and wisdom accumulated in his previous birth,
That king of elephants started plucking lotus flowers by his trunk,
And started offering it to you, Oh God, and worshipped you,
By a great stotra extolling your unqualified supreme form,
Which he had learned in his previous birth. ॥ 26.7 ॥

Hearing that stotra extolling your unqualified nature completely,
When Brahma and other devas did not come thinking,
That this prayer was not addressed to them, you who are everything,
Speedily appeared before him, riding on the Garuda. ॥ 26.8 ॥

After catching hold of the king of the elephants,
By your lotus-like hands, you tore the crocodile by your wheel,
And liberated that Gandharva from his curse,
And the elephant got a form equal to yours and shined. ॥ 26.9 ॥

Oh Lord you told him, “any one who sings,
About elephant or me in the morning,
Would become one of great fame,”
And later you went to Vaikunta along with elephant,
And Oh Lord of Guruvayur, please protect me. ॥ 26.10 ॥
