Ādiśaṅkarācāryāṣṭakam

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet (i.e., Your footprints) inside my heart. They bestow wealth. They show the way. They give strength (to walk on the way). They bestow fearlessness (in the journey).[1]

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet inside my heart. They bestow stability. They bestow security and boons. They bestow fearlessness.[2]

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet inside my heart. They are dear and most dear (to me). They bestow consciousness and devotion. They bestow fearlessness.[3]

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet inside my heart. They are constantly worshipped. They bestow divine skies (world). They bestow upper limits (to everything). They bestow fearlessness.[4]

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet inside my heart. They are the root of righteousness and duty. They reveal the right meaning in detail. They bestow patience and they bestow fearlessness.[5]

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet inside my heart. They bestow inspiration. They are worshipped with flowers. They are the form of compassion. They bestow fearlessness.[6]

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet inside my heart. They ensure the death of all that must be destroyed (in me). They bestow life anew. They are invisible (to the physical eye) and formless. They bestow fearlessness.[7]

O Guru! I adore again and again, the prints of Your lotus feet inside my heart. O Ādi Śaṅkarācārya! I adore again and again, the prints of Your pure feet (wherever they be).[8]

O Lord! O Guru! Please be happy. Please accept this offering.
