1.    The Primordial Lord of the Universe, whose form is unbroken consciousness, whose feet are adored by the Vedas, who destroys sins of those who bow to him, the Lord of the Mountains! Bestow on me a sidelong glance with thy eyes moistened with compassion, lest I should end my life living like an animal.


2.    Arunachala, the embodiment of the 8-fold [1] form of the Universe, in order that the worldly afflictions may cease to torment me, please cast they look of Grace to help cut asunder the ego-knot without feeling its pangs.


3.    As proclaimed in the essential teachings of all Scriptures, by ceaseless contemplation of the Holy Feet of the Supreme Lord Arunachala, I am sure to be freed from my innate pride, attachment, anger, delusion, lust and greed and attain salvation (liberation).




[1] The Universe is said to have 8 components: the five elements (ether, air, fire, water and earth) the sun, moon and the jivas (individual souls).
