Sri RaghavendraSwamy Stotram by Appanachariyar

Sri poornabodha guru theerthapayobdhipara,
Devalisevithaparangriugrapayo jalagna.

Durvadhyajapathigilai guru raghavendra,
Vagdevathasaridhamumvimali karothu.

The Guru with complete intellect who makes us crosses the ocean of life,
Like the water which emanates above the eye of the killer of "God of love",
Which by the flowing waves washes the feet of Lord Vishnu,
And which has torrential waves worshipped by crowds of devas,
And is the lord of life with all qualities and makes a better world,
Has the face which does not see differences between poor and rich,
Which like the group of crocodiles destroy the bad arguments
And is being meditated by sages as the Guru Raghavendra,
And let his words purify us like the divine river.

Sri Raghavendrasakalapradhatha,
Kshamasurendraaavatthumaam sadaayam.

Sri Raghavendra who gives us everything,
To those who are filled with devotion to his feet,
Who by his sight destroys mountains of sins,
Like Indra'sVajrayudha destroying mountains,
And who is king of earth, would protect us always.
Sri Raghavendroharipadakancha ,
Deva swabhavodivijadhrumo,Ayamishtapradho may sathathamsa bhooyath.

Sri Raghavendra devoted to the feet of Narayana,
Who serves him with all the assets that he has,
Who is god like, who is similar to the wish giving tree
Would bless me with all my wishes always.
Samasthadushta graham nigraheso,

He has a holy personality, who burns away sorrow and misery,
Who looks after welfare of the society and is very courageous,
Who is capable of destroying the effects of evil planets
And who is like the bridge built to cross the ocean of misery.

He does not have any thing bad in him and appears fully praiseworthy,
Who by his firm and thoughtful words silences others in argument,
Whose greatness can be full known to only learned people,
And who has conquered others* by his mastery of words.

* Could be also SeshaTheertha whom he defeated
Dathwasarerothdhasamasthadoshan,Hathwasa no avyadh Guru Raghavendra.

Let the Guru Raghavendra grant me, children, wealth and devotion,
Special knowledge , health and skills with words,
Giving us freedom from all the ills of our body,
And also destroy bad effects from all the diseases.
Vyangaswangasamrudhidhograha maha papa hasthamsraye.

The collection of water that washes your feet which helps us to attain all desires,
Which brings innumerable, unsurpassed, illustrious and famous blessings
Which destroys the three types of miseries, blesses with good son saluted by the world,
To the elegant one deprived of them earlier and also destroys the bad effects of planets.
Yad pad padmaMadhupayithamanasa ye
Thad darshanamdurithakananadavamrutham.
The sight of the devotee wearing the holy dust of his feet,
Who is drunk with the honey extracted from his lotus like feet,
And who understands and sings the praise of his lotus like feet,
Is the fast spreading fire which destroys our miseries.
sudheendravara puthraka,
A very independent saint who is well learned,
Who goes on propagating the principles of Madhwa,
Who is the blessed student of Saint Sudheendra,
Who was a blessing of lotus like hand of Vijayeendra,
Sri Raghavendroyathi rat
gurur may syathbhayapahaa
YasasriPunya vardhana.

The great Saint Raghavendra.
My Guru who takes away fear,
And blesses with wisdom.
Devotion, good children, fame,
And leads to increase of blessed deeds.
Prathivadijayaswanthabhedha china dharo guru,

Who defeats all those who debate against him,
And appears to them very fearful,
And also an expert in all Vedas and arts.

There is no one like Guru Raghavendra,
Who defeats all those who debate against him,
And appears to them very fearful,
And also an expert in all Vedas and arts.

There is no one like Guru Raghavendra,
Who has directly seen the consort of Lakshmi,
Who has discarded all bad desires,
And who grants us all that we desire.
Dayadakhinyavairagya, vakpatavamukhangitha,
There is no one like Guru Raghavendra,
Who is merciful, straight forward and detached,
Who adorns himself with mastery of words,
And who is capable of cursing as well as blessing.

Forgetfulness, misunderstanding , doubts , decay of sense,
Lethargy , shaking , stammering would disappear from all organs.,

Sarvanapipumarthaschadadathu guru rathmavidh.
Let the great Guru who has clear understanding of Athma,
Destroy all ills of the body and also those arising out of our mind,
And also similar ills of our friends and relatives.

He who does these prayers in dawn noon and dusk daily,

Sri madhwamathadughdhabdhiChandroaavathasadaanagha.

In this world Sri Raghavendra existed with great fame,
And was the moon to the ocean of Philosophy of Sri Madhwa,
And we seek his blessings of this flawless Guru.
I go round your Brindavana so that I get the effect of all pilgrimages,
I sprinkle on my head the water that has passed through the saint's Brindavana,
And I get the effect of visiting and sprinkling all the sacred waters.

For getting all my wishes fulfilled I salute you,And singing about you gives same effect as reading Vedas and other holy books.

Nana vibhramadrubhrameamithabhayasthomadhiphenothkate,Dukhothkrushtevishe samudharaguromaam magna roopamsada.
Oh great Guru , save me from this deep , impassable ocean of misery called life,
With crocodile like blemishes which are agitated by ocean wave like desires,
With whirlpools of ignorance and perverse knowledge trying to pull me down,
And great sorrows which are like worst poisons trying to put me down.
