1: (I Meditate on Lord Vishnu) Who has a Serene Appearance (which fills our inner being with Peace); Who is Lying on (the Bed of) Serpent (Ananta or Adisesha, representing the eternal Primal Energy or Mula Prakriti); From Whose Navel is springing up a Lotus (which is the source of all Creations through Brahmadeva); and Who is (presiding over the various elements of those Creations as) the Lord of the Devas,
2: Who is the Substratum of the whole Universe (as Consciousness); and (Boundless and Infinite) like the Sky (Chidakasha); with a Form Bluish in Colour like the Cloud, (The Form) which is radiating Auspiciousness (which fills our inner being with Bliss);
3: Who is the Beloved of Devi Lakshmi with Eyes Beautiful like Lotus petals; Who is Attainable by the Yogis only through (Devotional) Meditation,
4: I Worship that All-Pervading Vishnu Who Removes the Fear of Worldly Existence (by making us realize that we are not isolated beings internally but are eternally connected to Him); I Worship that Vishnu Who is the One Lord of All the Lokas (Worlds).
