Salutations to Vishnu, Who is the state of universe before creation, appears or expresses inside the heart of knowledge-seekers after continuous penance, is devoid of any material or physical tensions, is the only one (polymorphic), is present inside everyone's heart, and takes various forms.
Oh Raam, I consistently bow to You, Who visualizes inside the heart of Yogis who, with determination, stop the air inside their lungs (i.e. stop breathing) and destruct all the material tensions around them seeking You. I bow to You, who is the best, diamond among jewels, and is abode of infinite splendor and shine.
I consistently bow to Raam, Who is beyond the worldly creations, slayed Madhu, is the beginning of this world, is beyond any measure, destroys attachment and passion, is reverred by sages, is seeked by knowledge-seekers and is the seeking-knowledge as well, is complete in every way, pleases the world, and is exquisitely beautiful.
I bow to Raam, Who is without emotions and miserability, Whose dual-feet are meditated upon by Shiv and other yogis, Who is eternal, pristine, wise, infinite, and beginning of this universe.
O Raam, You are my Lord, You lead me to towards finish of my deeds, You are beyond measure, You are born in the lineage of Madhu (Krishna), You possess everything, You are attained by devotion and devotee, You absolve the fear of world among us by Your appearance, and You are understood and attained by the practice of Yoga.
I bow to Raam, Who is the absolute, beginning, and end of the three worlds, Who is beyond any measure present in the three worlds, Who should be reverred and chanted with devotion and respect, and Who is like a blooming beautiful blue-lotus.
O Lord! You are beyond the present, the visible, and the proofs derived from them. [In that case] which worldly creature can try to or completely understand You [or reason You out]? You are induplicable, without a comparison, and reverred unquestionably by the best of philosophers. I bow to Raam, Who is the same as reverred cow-herd leader, Krishna, Who is glorified by Shiv, and Who is cloud of happiness.
I bow to Raam, Who is promoted by various knowledge entities like Veda, Who is eternal bliss, Who enlightens us with the knowledge of unconditional devotion, Who is without a precedent, Who has taken a human-form for my work (maintaining nature's balance), Who is blue like sapphire, and Who will incarnate as Krishna during Dvapar-Epoch.
Those who study this hymn with devotion and faith, and meditate on Raam and Krishna — the bestower of everything in this universe — understand the absolute truth and shun their ignorance.
