From whose limitless power emerged countless beings,
From whose property less form emerged great qualities,
And from whose power the world is divided in to a triad

From whom this entire universe emerged,
And from whom Lord Brahma who sits on a lotus,
Lord Vishnu who pervades the universe,

From whom wealth which pleases devotees emerged,
And by whom roadblocks are removed and,
Success in every action is attained.

By whom child wealth and desires are granted,
By whom several forms of problems,

From whom Anantha gets his power to lift the earth,
Who can assume several different forms,

About whom even the Vedas do not understand,
And stop with searches with “This is not”, “This is not”,
Who is the real form of that eternal truth,
And who is the real form of that eternal joy
