Translation:

O, son of Parvati, the boastful1 one! The ocean of unconditional grace! I prostrate before your lotus feet.

O, the wielder of tusk, sweet modaka, and the noose-goad2! O, one of incomparable valor, and Charudeshna (the son of Krishna-Rukmini)3, I bow down to you.

You are the God who is worshipped by many. Please show me your lotus feet! O leader of the herd, and one whose face shines like the sun. You are the subject of Shri. Jagannatha Vitthala’s utmost affection. Victory to you!

 

Composer: Shri. Jagannatha Dasaru (Ankita naama: Jagannatha Vitthala)

Raga: Naatai

Tala: Adi

Reference: N/A*

*Note: There are several versions (1,2) online. But we are singing the version learnt from our Guru.

1 Various sources give conflicting meanings for ‘Heramba’ (Protector of the Weak according to Brahmavaivarta Purana. However, it seems “peculiarly artificial” according to the reference in Wikipedia.) Although one of the literal meanings in Sanskrit is ‘buffalo’, we choose ‘the boastful’ as the more appropriate meaning in this context.

2 These are some of the things wielded by Heramba Ganapati. Especially the noose and the goad (pasha and ankusha) signify Raaga and Dwesha.

3 Ganapathi was born as “Charudeshna”, the son of Krishna-Rukmini (hence, is considered to be in the 18th Kakshya). https://www.facebook.com/umswamiji/posts/527532367318659
