Sri Athmarpana Sthuthi by Sri Appayya Dheekshithar – Lyrics and meanings 1 -10



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||












Oh! Devadeva/Lord of Lords,  Who could describe your endless splendor?  You are the cause for the numerous creations and you are attainable with intense devotion, therefore I have taken immense attempt and courage to praise your glories with sincere devotion, kindly pardon me for the inconsiderate act, Oh! Vidhatha, The Earth and all those essential elements and none of the motionless things will take place without any source, or a non- expertise could not perform the function of creation, you are primeval deity therefore you are responsible for the function of creation too.  Oh! Paramashiva, Indhra, Mithra, Varuna, Anila, Bhrama, Vishnu all are enticed by you, all the living things will get submerged at the end, Oh! Deva, Shruthi eulogizes the glories of Shambu and various deities, Oh! Kapardhin who have attractive matted hair locks, you are the ocean of bliss, and your mesmerizing form is beyond description or perception of human intellect, you are inseparable from the union of Goddess Uma and takes immense pleasure in the association of each others, you are pure and have the effulgence of thousands and millions of sun, you are most celebrated deity worshiped by Ganas, Oh! Vishvanetha/commander of the Universe, you are worshiped by the liberated souls/renounced souls who are freed from worldly matters and immersed in the meditation of supreme Lord who is eternal bliss,  Upanishadhs and Vedantha eulogizes your splendor, you are promising to Vipras who are engaged in Bhraminic rites, you are the provider of abundance of boons to them, Oh! Ghora, some people undertakes intense practices of meditation to  cross the unfathomable ocean of Samsara, some engages in worship of your lotus feet  on regular basis according to the prescribed rules in the scriptures, some people may strictly follow Varnnashrama Dharma, unfortunately I have not followed any of these, therefore sinking in the bottomless ocean of Samsara.  Oh! Lord, As I have born in the illustrious clan,  I had the fortune to  listen  few drops of ocean like  your  endless glories, I have been inopportune to worship your lotus feet, due to  uncertainty of mind and lack of control over the senses, therefore my birth has become futile and sinful, Oh! Shiva, you get pleased with the veneration of simplest flowers of Arka and Drona available in the woods, with that I could have attained the Mokshasamrajyalakshmi/highest of the opulence known as liberation from repeated births, Oh! Shiva, although aware of all those I have been wasted all my life; hence I am an Athmadhrohi/sinner to the supreme soul, eventually that resulted in my plummet, Oh! Swamin, what shall I do? I have completely drawn to the worldly desires and bondage which are biggest enemies, due to lack of control over senses and extreme haughtiness, Oh! Natha, I am helpless to control from imprudent conduct and worldly matters, whenever I think of rebirth I am getting terrified, what shall I do? Where will I go? I have not found any means other than surrender to nectar like your lotus feet.
