Śrīrāmacandrāṣṭakam

May Rāma, Who is pure thought, Who is the protector, Who is the bestower of supreme happiness, Who is always worthy of service by the best among muni (and) the best among Yogī (and) the best among Yati or ascetics (and) Indra (and) Hanumān, Who is complete, Who is the supplement of the daughter of Janaka, Who is superior to the demi-gods, and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[1]

May Rāma, Who is the bestower of mokṣa, Who is Govinda, Whose feet is cherished by the daughter of Janaka, Whose feet was attained by the low by birth Śabarī, Whose description is beyond speech and unreachable by spotless knowledge or Vedavākya, and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[2]

May Rāma, Who is Lord of the Earth, Who is without a lord, Who is Raghupatī for demi-gods (and) best among humans, Who has ornaments like diadem and bracelet of reddish-golden colors, Who is opulent in beauty, Who is situated majestically on a throne with resplendence of hundreds of sun, Whose mind is quiet, and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[3]

May Rāma, Who is supreme bliss, Who is worthy of taking a refuge into, Who is the friend of Sugrīva (king of monkeys), Who is separated from everything in the end, Who has kāśmīra flower on forehead, Who destroyed the one with pleasing gait (golden deer), Whose face is like the Moon, and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[4]

May Rāma, Whose eyes are variegated, Whose name is given (by Śiva) in Kāśī (for tāraṇa), Whose thousand names given by Śiva are chanted by Girijā (Pārvatī) every morning, the four mouths of Brahmā (and) the mouth of Śiva sing Whose stories, and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[5]

May Rāma, Who is beyond everything, Who is steady, Who is unsteady, Who is the creator of the lineage of demons (and) Who is the destroyer of the demons, Who is Parātman, Who knows everything, Whose glories are sung by humans (and) demi-gods, and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[6]

May Rāma, Who is Hṛṣīkeśa, Who is Viṣṇu, Who sleeps on the bed of Śeṣanāga (one holding the earth), Who is the enemy of Madhu, Who is Lord Vāmana (Upendra), Who is Vaikuṇṭha, Who is the destroyer of the enemy of King Indradyumna (Gaja) with satisfaction to the mind (of the King), Who perished Bali, Who is brave, Who is the son of Daśaratha, Who is deft in Nīti (King’s code), and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[7]

May Rāma, Who is enlightened, Who is praised by Lakṣmaṇa, Who is the killer of the impostor deer, Who roamed in the forests, Who is skilful in battles, Who is patient, Who is the absolver of the weight of the Earth, Who is bowed upon by demi-gods, Who is without a form, Who knows various forms, Who is worthy of reverence by everyone, Who stays in the heart (as soul), and Who is the Lord of Ramā stay in heart of me indeed forever.[8]

He who study this stotra on Rāma — which is very beautiful, and which has been written by Amaradāsa (the poet) — every morning with devotion, having abandoned the fear of metempsychosis (and) its associated pains he goes towards the supreme feet of Lord Raghupati, which is (typically) bestowed by Śiva.[9]
