Oh, Sambo! Always protect me! You are the ocean of the essence of compassion. Oh, Samba!
One who has the lotus feet, worshiped by the celestials like Indra and others. One who is eternal.
Oh the divine manifestation, adorned by serpents! One who is worshiped and glorified by sages like Narada. One who has nectar-like speech; the one who dissolves the afflictions of the devotees; having a lotus-like face and is the embodiment of good virtues.
Beholder of the trident in the hand, one who sports the radiant and beautiful oxen as the mount one who banishes the skillful enemies of the celestials. One whose form dissolves the afflictions of the entire world.
One who delights in the mountain of Kailasa. One how decisively banished the consort of Rati (the cupid). One who protects all the three worlds; one whose forehead is effulgent with the crescent moon; one who delights with the sister of Lord Padmanabha.
