Meaning: I pray to you, the Son of Anjani and Vayu. In your holy presence, how small I am! Please shower your kindness on me and protect me, my Lord; You were near Sugriva (the king) as his advisor and minister; As instructed by Sugriva, you have taken the holy mission of finding Sita (Sri Rama’s wife) at the behest of Sri Rama and Sri Lakshmana; You have prayed to Lord Shiva and undertook the task as the servant of Sri Rama; Vaali, the brother of Sugriva had died due to his misdeeds. Sri Rama, belonging to the Kakutsa dynasty (one of the forefathers of Sri Rama), had killed Vaali; After Vaali’s demise, you left Kishkintha, the kingdom of Sugriva to undertake Sri Rama’s mission, and reached Lanka. At Sri Lanka you had killed the demoness named Lankini (the watch ward at Sri Lanka); You had gutted the Lankan city with fire; you saw the daughter of the earth (Bhoomi Putri), Sri Sita Devi, you got ecstatic, you gave Sri Rama’s ring to Sri Sita and got the hair ornament named Çhoodamani from her, traveled by air, reached Sri Rama and told him of Sri Sita’s presence and made him happy with the news of Sri Sita.

Meaning: Oh, Lord! At the behest of Sri Rama & Sri Lakshmana and for helping them to retrieve Sri Sita (Rama Karyam) Sugriva, Jambavantha, Angada and Neela, the mighty warriors had constructed the bridge on the Setu Samudra (ocean) to reach Lanka. The warriors of Sugriva, the Vanara Sainyam had crossed over the bridge and killed the demons in Lanka. On learning this, Ravanasura, the king of Lanka, wild with fury, applied the mighty ‘Shakthi Paana’ weapon on Lakshmana which impact made Lakshmana unconscious. On seeing Lakshmana unconscious, you have lifted and brought the Sanjivini Parvatha, the healing hill, provided healing therapy to Sri Lakshmana, and brought him back to life.
kumbhakarnadula nvirulam bora shrirama banagni.

Meaning: Demons such as Kumbakarna (one of the brothers of Ravana) were killed in the battle. The powerful weapon (Bana) of Sri Rama brought the death of Ravana, and the World had rejoiced in this. Vibhishana, another brother of Ravana, was made the king of Lanka. You have brought Sri Sita Mahadevi to Sri Rama, and you were instrumental in reuniting them. Immediately on the reunion, Sri Rama Pattabhishekam (taking charge as King) was held at Ayodhya, and you were blissfully present at the occasion. For me, no one is more endearing than you; As an ardent devotee of Rama let all my sins, sorrows, and problems disappear.

Meaning: My total surrender and devotion to you; Chanting poems praising you remove my fears; Grant me boons; Bless me with my kingdom where I can rule; Enable wealth. Your divine person is in the form of Vanara (Monkey); You are filled with your ardent devotion to Sri Rama; You are the embodiment of all virtues and their benefits; You are courageous; You are a warrior.
You are entirely and continuously absorbed in chanting the eternally liberating Rama Nama which is called the Taraka Brahma Mantra.
vajradehambunun dalchi shrirama shriramayanchun manahputamaina eppudun tappakan.
talatuna jihvayandundi ni dirghadehammu trailokya sancharivai rama
namankitadhyanivai brahmatejambunan raudranijvala
Meaning: Your holy person is as strong as a Diamond, and you always keep thinking devoutly about the excellent and everlasting Sri Rama Nama; You are capable of traveling to three worlds with your marvelous fine form. You meditate on Rama Nama, and due to this you are endowed with ever-glittering chastity (Brahmam), and you are a mighty ferocious warrior.

rudrundavai nivu brahmaprabhabhasitambaina nidivya tejambunun juchi
Meaning: You are the warrior who dispels chaos. You are sacred like the sound of ‘OM’ and you destroy the demons, devils, and ghosts like Sakini and Dhakini by rolling them with your sacred tail and dumping them on the ground; You land blows on them with your fists and magnificent arms. You break them into pieces with your hair blades; You appear like the fire-spewing Lord Shiva, the ferocious Almighty at the time of evil destruction; I see your glowing and bright form which is eternal.
