Translation:

O, soldier of the Lotus-eyed Lord! You are the kinsman of those who think of you. You are as dependable as the floor on which we stand. You are Hanumantha, the bestower of boons.

You crossed the ocean and prostrated before Janakidevi, without the knowledge of the countless demons around her. Having sought the blessings at the feet of Raghu Kulendra (Lord Rama)’s wife, you performed amazing unassisted feats, O leader of all the vanaras!

You slayed evil demons like Kirmeera, Bakasura, Hidimbaka and Keechaka, just like an elephant that lays waste to a plantain field. You came as a lightning bolt that scorched the wicked Kauravas who tried to humiliate the blemishless Draupadi.

Under the order of Badarayana (Vedavyasa) you taught the essence of Tattvavaada to the devout Vaishnavas. You defeated the detractors who were an impurity on this earth, and you dedicated your victory to Lotus-naveled Lord Prasanvenkatesha.

Every single day, in this emotional ocean, overwhelmed by the massive tides of samsara, I am drowning. Please hold my hand, O Lord Krishna!

O Srinivasa, he who is not devoted to you is a sinner. Such inferior beings are destined for ruin. What more can I say! In your kingdom, even if a single ignorant soul is doomed, is it not a loss for you, O protector of the weak!

There is no limit to the speed of thought. It drags me along to arbitrary places, O Ranga. O Lord, you should keep it bound at your feet, and rule it. Please bear me in your arms like a mother.

I can’t find the route in the ocean, and lost in its momentum, I can’t find shelter. O Lotus-eyed master of ease, you must save me. Show me the port, O destroyer of anxiety, and bless me with the boon of refuge. You are the generous one, O one who resides happily on Venkatadri (PrasanVenkatadrinilaya).

Translation:

[Primer: Most of the song is based on the story of Garuda, as it appears in Adi Parva (Chapters 16-34) of Mahabharata (well summarized in this blog entry). ]

O, how very radiant, the vahana (vehicle) of Lord Hari (Shreepati)!

A peerless vahana across the fourteen worlds!

He was born as the son of Sage Kashyapa and Vinata. He, in his resplendent form, carried away his siblings. He devoured a group of fishermen in the middle of a forest. As per the instructions of his father, he also swallowed the turtle and the elephant.

He fought with the wielder of the thunderbolt, Lord Indra. He brought the Amrutakalasha by entering Devaloka. He destroyed his half-brothers (snake-sons of Kadru). He also brought the “hidden crown of Mahabali”1.

He was born as Kaalanaamaka2 in this world, and worshipped Lord Hari who is the essence of time. He released the vanaras from their shackles during the war3. He saved the Valakhilya sages by carrying them4.

He carried Mandara mountain to place on the ocean, prior to its churning. He serves Shri Hari, in his Nija roopa (true form). He brought the amrita to the Pitru Devatas2. He, who is the husband of Sauparni, is the golden vahana.

He is the vahana of Lord Hari, who is Pannaga Shayana (one who sleeps on the snake-bed), and Patita-Pavana (the deliverer of fallen souls). He protects the devotees who bow down to him. He is the dearest vahana to Lord Jagannatha who resides on Pannagadri (Seshadri). He is none other than Garuda!

1 When King Mahabali failed to fulfill his promise to Shri. Hari in his Vamana avatar, Garuda arrested Mahabali with his GarudaPasha and brought him before Lord Hari.

2 Reference incomplete.

This is in reference to Day 1 of Yuddha Kanda of Ramayana, where Garuda came to rescue Rama, Lakshmana and Vanaras from Indrajit’s Nagapasha.

4Valakhilya rishis were hanging upside down from the banyan tree, where Garuda sat with the turtle and elephant. When he noticed the branch shearing, he grabbed the branch in his talons and saved them. There is yet another reference to Valakhilya sages who cursed Indra that his arrogance will be vanquished by the King of Birds, which is a precursor to Garuda’s birth.

*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
