From Lord Padmanabhaswamy to the Benefits of Rubbing Nails
विश्वाधारं गगनसदृशं मेघवर्ण शुभाङ्गम् ।
लक्ष्मीकान्तं कमलनयनं योगिभिर्ध्यानगम्यम्
वन्दे विष्णुं भवभयहरं सर्वलोकैकनाथम् ॥
Vishvaadhaaram Gagana-Sadrusham Megha-Varnna Shubhaangam|
Lakshmikaantam Kamala-Nayanam Yogibhirdhyaana-Gamyam
Vande Vishnum Bhava-Bhaya-Haram Sarva-Lokaeka-Naatham ||
Translation - (Salutations to Sri Vishnu) who has a serene appearance, who rests on a serpent (Adisesha), who has a lotus on his navel and who is the lord of the devas, who sustains the universe, who is boundless and infinite like the sky, whose colour is like the cloud (Black-green) and who has a beautiful and auspicious body, who is the husband of devi Lakshmi, whose eyes are like lotus and who is attainable to the yogis by meditation, salutations to that Vishnu who removes the fear of worldly existence and who is the lord of all the lokas.
