|| I always prayed to Lord Brahma, Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva. I also prayed to Goddess Saraswati fully ||

|| Incarnated with great happiness and Supreme Bliss ||

|| Beyond duality, similar to the sky and beginning with an aim with the essence of Vedanta ||

|| One always motionless and clean by all means created Being with Witness ||

|| Beyond the devotion and without the three qualities Satva Rajas and Tamas. I pray to the good Preceptor ||

|| As the preceptor is Supreme Lord and hence I salute to the Lord Brahma, preceptor Lord Vishnu and preceptor Lord Shiva ||

|| Wearing a saffron coloured garment adorned with a rod in one hand and a gourd,earthen waterpot in the other hand with a conch shell ||

|| And holding a sharp circular weapon as an ornament of decoration, I surrender to the Supreme Lord for protection ||

|| Oh! Lord Dattatreya mother|| You are my mother||Lord Dattatreya mother||

|| Show your full favour on your devotee||

|| The three Gods Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva always dwelled in on

|| Sage Atri and Anusuya the daughter dwelled under the glamorous fig tree||

|| Appearing like a six-armed statue with the body marked with ashes||

|| The armholding a gourd with shining appearance||

|| Holding a conch with a sharp circular wheel in one hand and a mace in the other hand|| a small wallet fixed in an armpit!

|| The Saffron coloured garment appearing beautiful on the body|| The wooden slippers making a brisk sound in the legs||

|| By accepting the garland of the berries of a sacred tree|| And the accompanying dogs ||

|| Like the Moon and Sun the eyes also appearing beautiful||

|| That luster dazzling the eyes|| All the ten directions getting pervaded with that luster||

|| That splendid luster giving assurance of protection and blessing||

|| The mass of the matted hair appearing beautiful on the head ||

|| In the right luster, Lord Dattatreya shining ||

|| At the lotus feet of Lord Dattatreya, the incarnated three headed God, the humble servant offering salutation ||

|| Oh! Mother, come running ||

|| Let my attention be drawn towards the offering of my salutations at the lotus feet of Lord Swami Samarth ||

|| Let my body be surrendered in the celebration of the praises of Lord Swami Samarth with music and singing ||

|| I pray to Shree Swami Samarth, Lord Dattatreya, the God of Truth , Knowledge and Joy ||

|| Please come Good preceptor|| Please come for celebration of the praise of God, with music and singing ||

|| Though I am dull in understanding the meaning and humble || You grant me good intellect ||
