Kamala Pathyashtakam Lyrics in English

bhujagatalpagatam ghanasundaram garudavahanamambujalocanam ।
nalinacakragadakaramavyayam bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 1॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
Who sleeps on the bed of snake,
Who is very pretty with colour of cloud,
Who rides on Garuda,
Who has lotus like eyes,
And who carries in his hand lotus,
Holy wheel and mace.

alikulasitakomalakuntalam vimalapitadukūlamanoharam ।
jaladhijasritavamakalevaram bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 2॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
Who has pretty hair like a bevy of bees,
Who is pretty with the clear yellow silk he wears,
And who has on his left side the Goddess Lakshmi.

kimu japaisca tapobhirutadhvarairapi kimuttamatirthanisevaṇaih ।
kimuta sastrakadambavilokanaih bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 3॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
For what is got by chanting and meditation
What is got by bath in sacred rivers
And what is got by learning groups of science.

visayalampatatamapahaya vai bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 4॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
For what is the use of desiring mundane things,
When you have got a man’s body,
Which is difficult to obtain,
Even for Gods with an aid of meditation.

na vanita na suto na sahodaro na hi pita janani na ca bandhavah ।
vrajati sakamanena janena vai bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 5॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
For neither wife, nor sons nor brothers,
Neither father nor mother nor relations,
Are going to come with us at the end.

samavalokya vivekadṛsa drutam bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 6॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
For all things which move and not move are transient,
In the world, so are sons, riches and youth,
If you understand this, by your intelligence.

pariniriksya sariramidam svakam bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 7॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
For if you examine your own body,
It is subject to diseases and transient,
Capable of dying with its nine openings.

maraṇajanmajarabhayamocanam bhajata re manujah kamalapatim ॥ 8॥

Hey man, pray the consort of Lakshmi,
For he is always meditated upon by sages,
Saluted always by Shiva Brahma and Indra,
And removes fear of death, birth and aging.

haripadastakametadanuttamam paramahamsajanena samiritam ।
pathati yastu samahitacetasa vrajati visṇupadam sa naro dhruvam ॥ 9॥

This great prayer of the Lord Hari,
As told by great wise sages,
If read with attention and devotion,
Will take quickly one to the feet of Lord Vishnu.

iti srimatparamahamsasvamibrahmanandaviracitam kamalapatyastakam samaptam॥
