Prayer for Thursday (Dussehra)

OM Sri Rama Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Rama

Raghothamashtakam

I salute that God Rama,
Who is saluted by grateful devas,
Who belongs to clan of the Sun God,
And who shines with sandal applied on his forehead.

I salute that God Rama,
Who got the Yagna of Viswamithra conducted,
Who removed danger to the stone,
And who broke the great bow.

I salute that God Rama,
Who obeyed words of his father,
Who lived in the forests of meditation,
And who carried bows and arrows.

I salute that God Rama,
Who shot an arrow at the deer,
Who gave salvation to Jatayu,
And who shot an arrow at the king of monkeys.

I salute that God Rama,
Who had a treaty with monkeys,
Who built a bridge over the sea,
And who put an end to family of the ten headed.

I salute that God Rama,
Who gave happiness to the sad devas,
Who fulfilled the wishes of monkeys,
And who put an end to the sorrow of his relations.

I salute that God Rama,
Who saved the kingdom from enemies,
Who put an end to the sorrow of the people,
And who existed as a great philosopher.

I salute that God Rama,
Who lightened the load of earth,
Who lead his people to heaven,
And who is the sun who put an end to darkness.

He who reads this octet,
On the great one of Raghu clan,
Permanently with devotion,
Would never feel the fear of this world.
