    O king of all the deities !
    You are a great warrior, who fights against all the dark entities.

    You bring storms, rains and lightning using your thunderbolt;
    Your fury causes all the heavens to jolt.

    Your are the bringer of light;
    You have a great might.

    You bless everyone with inner strength and fertility;
    You always represent order, peace and stability.

    That roar of the thunder in the clouds seems as if, a huge cavalry is violently approaching me for a battle;
    Oh lord ! You are also the guardian of forests and cattle.

    Oh god of this world ! You continue to rule this realm with your different incarnations;
    You maintain peace by uniting all the nations.

    Oh king ! Bless me with your wisdom;
    Destroy all the worldly chaos and establish your godly kingdom.
