1. Vandhe vang manasaatheetham, nirgunam, sagunam gurum,
Dathathreya manandha kandham  Baktheshta poorakam

Salutations  to him who is beyond words and mind, Who has no characters, who has only good characters and is the teacher,
The  very joyful cloud called Dathathreya, who fulfills desires of his devotees.

2.Namani sathatham Datham oudhumbara nivasinam,
Yatheendra roopam cha sadnaa nijaanandha prabodhanam.

I always salute the Datha who lives on Udhumbara tree,
Who has the form of a saint  and one who wakens up  everlasting joy.

3.Krishnaa Yadagre bhuvanesaani vidhya nidhisthadaa,
Oudhumbara kalpa vrukshaa, sarvadha sukhadaa sadaa.

Black in colour and on the tips having the treasure of world over knowledge,
Is the Oudhumbara wish giving tree and keeps us always  with pleasure.

4..Bhaktha Vrunda darasanatha, purushartha  chathusthtayam,
Dadhathi Bhagwan bhoomaa sachidananda  Vigrahaa.

That God  in the earth who has the form of everlasting joy,
Gives the four Purusharthas to his  crowd of devotees,
Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.

5.Jagarthi guptha roopena, gopthaa dhyana samadhithaa,
Brahma vrundham, Brahma sukham dadhaathi sama dushtitha.

That secret one awakens you secretly those who meditate on him,
And with happiness gives him company of Brahma and  happiness of Brahma loka.

6.Krushnaa thrushnaharaa yathra sukhadhaa  BHuavaneswari,
Yathra  Moksha dharanga datha padukaa thaam Namayaham,

I salute   the slippers of Datha  which are black, which quenches the thirst,
Which is the pleasure giving Goddess of universe and is the gate of salvation.

 The saint  Narasimha Saraswathi  who has the form of his sandals,
Would shine like the king of kings  Dathathreya, the Lord of Sri Pada.

Anantha mayamathmaanam nava bhakthya sukha pradam.

I salute the form of my teacher who removes three types of sufferings,
Whose soul is the limitless joy and who due to devotion   grants us pleasant life.

9.Kara  veerastha vidhusha mooda puthram vinindhitham,
Cchithra jihwam  budham chakrethaddanmayi  krupaam kuru.

Those wise and foolish sons of Karaveera who berated him,
Had their toungues cut by the soldiers, please show mercy niggardly on me.

Sri Pa.Pa. Sri Vasudevananda  sararaswathi virachitham  Sri Datha  stotram  sampoornam
