Meaning
Oh (“re!”) Mind (“maanasa”)! mediate (“bhajare”) on the form (“roopam”) of GURUGUHA and cast off (“thyajare”) the sorrows (“hruttaapam”) created by deluded (“maaya maya”) mind.
Having got (“samprapthe”) the human (“maanava”) birth (“janma”), seek to obtain eternal bliss in PARAMATMA and avoid (“vrajare”) the mundane pleasures (“nirathi shaya sukham”).
He is SADASIVA, full of (“sahitha”) SATVAGUNA;
All living beings (“jeeva”) are born (“uthbhavam”) out of Him as the result of the impact of AVIDYA.
The universe (“viswa”) with its TAMASIC qualities is again a manifestation of His greatness(“Vaibhavam”);
He is TARAKESVARA and ANANDA BHAIRAVA.
Prostrate (“nathwa”) on His feet (“guru charanam”) ;
Mediate (“kruthwa”) on His name(“namasmaranam”);
Conquer (“Jithwa”) the veil of illusion(“Moha”),
and Think (“Mathwa”) of Him as your (“thwa”) sole (“eka”) refuge (“sharanam”).
