Chathur murthy stotram
Kadathanattu Padmanabha Variar
(Here is a peculiar prayer addressed to Rama and his three brothers.)
1.Dasaradha nrupa puthram, Janaki prana mithram,
Ruchira jalaja nethram, bhargavee spardhi gathram,
Kara thala drutha sashtram, Naumi rakendhu vakthram,
Pranutha vijitha vruthram Ramachandram Pavithram.
1.He is Son of king Dasaratha, great soul like friend of Sita,
Who has shining eyes like the lotus, Whose body touched Ahalya,
And who holds his weapons in his hands and I salute him who has sun and moon as eyes,
Who has sun and n moon as his eyes and who is the divinely pure Ramachandra.
2.Dinakara kula deepam, Panjajanyamsa bhootham,
Duritha samana lolam,Lakshmanasya agrajam tham,
Bhuvana bharama daksham Rama bhakthagra ganyam,
Bharatha manias meede, Ranachandranu jaatham
- He is the lamp of the solar dynasty, who is the partial incarnation of Pancha Janya,
Who is interested in solving my problems, Who is the elder brother of Lakshmana,
Who is an expert in ruling this world, Who is the greatest among devotees of Rama,
And I always pray Lord Bhratha who was born along with Ramachandra.
- Kara drutha sara chapam, Surya vamsavathamsam,
Ripu kula dava vahneem, Lakshmanam Raja puthram,
Sritha jana paripalam Ramachandranujam tham,
Dasa muka sutha kalam, Naumi seshamsa jatham.
He is the one who holds bow and arrow, who was bv born in the clan of the Sun,
Who is a fire that burns his enemies who is Lakshmana the prince,
Who protects those who surrender to him, who is the younger brother of Ramachandra,
And who was the killer I of son of Ravana and I salute him who is incarnation of Adhisesha.
4.Dasaratha nrupa soonum, Lakshmanasyanujatham,
Bharatha saha charam, Sri Rama Poojaa nimagnam,
Muni nivaha nishevyam, Vishnu Chakramsa bhootham,
Lavana nisichargnam, Naumi Sathrugna veeram.
4.He is the son of king Dasaratha, who was born along with Lakshmana,
Who always accompanies Bharatha, who is engaged in worship of Rama
Who was honored by multitude of sages, who was born as incarnation of the wheel,
And who killed Lavanasura and I salute that Valorous Shatrugna.
