Addtional text: traditional


Vunde gurunam caranaravinde

Sandarsita-svatma-sukhavabodhe

Nihsreyase jangalikayamane

Sansara-halahala-moha-santyai

Hala hala

Ahahu-purusakaram

Sankha-cakrasi-dharinam d ha rinam

Sahasra-sirasam

Vande

English translation: I worship the gurus' lotus feet,

Awakening the happiness of the self revealed,

Beyond comparison, working like the jungle physician

To pacify loss of consciousness from the poison of existence.

In the form of a man up to the shoulders,

Holding a conch, discus and sword,

Thousand headed, white

I bow respectfully

Peace


MADONNA
