12 Stotras Composed by Sri Madvachaarya: Dwadasha Stotra

Dwadasha Stotra is dedicated to Lord Krishna; it is believed that while offering Food to god we should recite Dwadasha stotra which means we are requesting God to accept our offerings. As we make food at home, firstly we should offer food to God as Naivediya and thanks to God for fulfilling our daily needs, then we should eat it food. Read each stotra and followed by it’s meaning.

Vande vandyam sadanandam vasudevam nirajanamh |
Indirapatimadyadi varadesha varapradamh || 1||

I offer my salutations always to Sri Krishna, the son of Vasudeva and consort of Sri Lakshmi, who is always fit for such prostration, who is full of bliss and other auspicious qualities, and is without any blemish or defect, and is the giver of great boons such as Moksha to Gods like Brahma, who are themselves known as givers of boons to others.

Namami nikhiladhisha kiritaghrishhtapithavath |
Hrittamah shamanearkabham shripateh padapankajamh || 2||

The feet of the Lord are like the effulgent Sun in dispelling the darkness of the mind called ajnaana, and rests on a pedestal which is touched frequently by the crowns on the heads of the great gods like Brahma and Rudra who are the masters of the world. (when they prostrate with deep devotion before him.)

Jambunadambaradharam nitambam chintyamishituh |
Svarnamajnjirasamvitam arudham jagadambaya || 3||

The waist of the Lord is covered by a golden cloth and is surrounded by a golden waistband. Sri Lakshmi is always resting there sitting on his lap, with her hands round his waist. Such a waist is to be contemplated.

Udaram chintyam ishasya tanutveapi akhilambharam |
Valitrayankitam nityam arudham shriyaikaya || 4||

The stomach of the Lord looks slim and small, but holds the entire Universe. It also has three lines (Vali thrayaa) and is always embraced by Rama (Lakshmi Devi). Such a stomach should be contemplated.

Smaraniyamuro vishhnoh indiravasamuttamaih |
Anantam antavadiva bhujayorantarangatamh || 5||

The chest of Lord Vishnu, who is all pervading and is the Lord of all, is the abode of Indira (Lakshmi Devi) and is infinite in space and time, but is still spanned by the two arms (at either ends). Such a chest should be remembered.

Shankhachakragadapadmadharashchintya harerbhujah |
Pinavritta jagadraxa kevalodyoginoanishamh || 6||

The four arms of the Lord wear the conch, discus, mace and the lotus and are round and full. Their main task is to protect the world always. Such arms should always be remembered.

Santatam chintayetkantham bhasvatkaustubhabhasakamh |
Vaikunthasyakhila veda udgiryanteanisham yatah || 7||

The neck of the Lord of Vaikunta (Narayana) is adorned with the brilliant Kaustubha Mani and is always reciting all the Vedas. Such a neck should always be contemplated.

Smareta yamininatha sahasramitakantimath |
Bhavatapapanodidhyam shripateh mukhapankajamh || 8||

The lotus like face of the Lord of Shri is effulgent with such brilliance that it can not be equaled even by thousands of full moons. It removes the sorrows of the worldly bonds and is very suitable for praise. Such a face should be remembered.

Purnananyasukhodbhasim andasmitamadhishituh |
Govindasya sada chintyam nityanandapadapradamh || 9||

There is a smile on the face of who is capable of giving the greatest gift of the coveted Moksha – the abode of eternal bliss, which is full and without any comparison. Such a smile should be contemplated.

Smarami bShavasantapa hanidamritasagaramh |
Purnanandasya ramasya sanuragavalokanamh || 10||

I think of the gracious and love-filled look of Sri Rama, who is himself full of bliss. His kind look is like the ocean of nectar which can remove all the sorrows and miseries caused by SamsAra.

Dhyayedajasramishasya padmajadipratixitamh |
Bhrubhangam parameshhthhyadi padadayi vimuktidamh || 11||

The twitch of the eye brow of the Lord can give the highest positions like that of Chaturmukha Brahma and even Moksha. It is much waited upon even by Brahma and others. Such eye brows should be contemplated.

Santatam chintayeanantam antakale visheshhatah |
Naivodapuh grinantoantam yadgunanam ajadayah || 12||

Brahma and other great gods always praise the unique, great and extraordinary auspicious qualities of the Lord which has no end, and yet can never reach the position of having completely described or understood even one of these qualities. Such a paramAtma should always be remembered, especially when one is anticipating his death.
