TRANSLATION

Refrain: Oh Hari! Please remove the sufferings of humanity.

2-3) For the sake of Your devotee, You assumed the form of Nrsimhadeva. You killed Hiranyakasipu with Your fierce form.

 

4) You immobilized the alligator that endangered the feet of the elephant, Gajendra.

 

5) Oh darling Giridhara! I am only Your maidservant, Mira. Here and there, there is only suffering and pain. Therefore, Oh Hari! Please remove the sufferings of humanity.
