Devi I am helpless, distressed, afflicted with fear and perils, I am completely chained with worldly matters, I have no haven other than you, therefore kindly protect us.  Oh! Devi, you are the safe haven in the wild forest like Samsara, you are my asylum in the middle of the enemies in the battle field, you are my protective shield in the midst of colossal fire, ocean, external territories and in the royal fields, therefore I shall prostrate before you, kindly protect us.  Oh! Devi, you are beyond description, you are the safest haven for the people who are drowned in the ocean of Samsara brimming with perils, I shall prostrate before you I am helpless without any shelter, kindly protect us.  I shall prostrate before Goddess Chandika who is the slayer of demon Chanda, she is the annihilator of wicked people and enemies, Oh! Devi, I shall prostrate before you, I am helpless without any shelter, kindly protect us.    I shall prostrate before Goddess Sri Durga who dwells as Ida, Pingala and Sushmna in the divine chakra, she is the eternal truth and has perfect control over the senses.  I shall prostrate before Goddess Durga who is personified as Shivaa/consort of Lord Shiva and consort of Bheemanadha as well.  She is embodied as Goddess Saraswathi and Arundhathi, she has various incarnations such as Shachi, Kalarathri, Sathi etc...

Oh! Raghava Oh! Rama, scion of Raghu Dynasty whoever sings or praising the glories of Lord Surya during sufferings, extreme anguish or lost in wilderness and afflicted with fear or anxiety would be relieved from their grief and sorrows.  If you worship Lord Surya, who is Lord of the Universe & Lord of Lords with utmost devotion and dedication and recite this glorious hymn thrice, you will attain triumph over your enemies.  Oh! Mighty armed Lord Rama, you will achieve victory over the demon Ravana.”  Thus, Sage Agstya blessed Lord Rama and predicted that Rama would slay the demon Ravana at the end of the battle and took leave to his abode.  After listening to Sage Agastya, Lord Rama felt blissful and relieved from the grief and anxiety.  He sincerely followed the advice of Sage Agastya, in a composed state of mind Lord Rama prepared to recite the auspicious hymns, after ablations Lord Rama performed the rite and recited the glorious hymns of Adityahrudayam.  Soon, Lord Rama regained immense strength which heightened his spirits and he lifted bow with great enthusiasm; with all those vigor regained Lord Rama approached the demon Ravana with a determination to kill him.  Lord Surya and the deities who were witnessing the fierce battle realized the destruction of Ravana and cheered Lord Rama.

Maharishi Narada continued “while Rama was ruling the Kingdom of Ayodhya, the men were not seen the death of their offspring’s, women were chaste and highly devoted to their husbands, they lived a happy and long life.  There was no fear of fire or there was no accidental death in the water, there was no fear of hurricane, there was no threat of fever, there was no hunger or fear of thieves.  The whole of the city was highly flourished with wealth and grains, all the subjects were lived a happy and peaceful life in Kritha Yuga.  Illustrious Rama lived a righteous life, he conducted hundreds of Ashwamedha Yaga, he offered abundance of wealth and gold, ten thousands of cows as charity to Bhramin and prepared to leave to the abode of Lord Bhrama.  Raghava reinstated the glories of Kshathriyas, people of four Varnas sincerely followed the duties and responsibilities according to their Varna, in this way Rama ruled his Kingdom wisely for ten thousand years and prepared to leave to the abode of Lord Bhrama.”

“ Whoever reads or listens to the glorious verses depicts the legend of Rama which is equivalent to sacred Veda, it is flawless and removes the sins of the worshiper and provides abundance of pieties, readers and listeners of this glorious myth would remain sinless.  Whoever reads or listens to the glorious legend of Rama would attain long life with children and grandchildren along with relatives and friends, finally attain the celestial abode with them.  The Bhramin who reads or listen to these glorious verses would achieve excellent skill in speech, Kshathriya would remain the ruler of the Kingdom, Vaishya would achieve prosperity in their business activities, and Shudras remain respectful.”

“I shall prostrate before the lotus feet of Lord Rama, Oh! Ramachandra kindly pardon me for all those mistakes in the construction of words or meter.”
