Satyam braveemi paraloka hitham braveemi saaram

braveemyupa nishadrudayam braveemi

Samsaara mulbanamasaa ramavaapya janthoh

saaroya meeshwara padamburuhasya sevaa //1//

Ye narchayanthi gireesham samaye pradoshe

yenarchitham shivamapi pranamanthi chaanye

Ethathkatham sruthiputairnapi bamthi moodha sthe

janma janmasu bhavanthi naraa daridraah  //2//

ye vai pradosha samaye parameshwarasya

kurvanthya nasyamana songhri saroja poojaam

nityam pravruddha dhana dhaanya kalathra putra

sowbhagya samapadadhi kastha ihaiva loke  //3//

kailasa shaila bhuvane trijagajjanithrim gowreem

niveshya kanakanchitha rathnapeethe

nruthyam vidhathumabhi vanchathi shulapaanau

deevam pradosha samayenu bhajanthi sarve  //4//

vaagdevi druthavallaki shatamakho venum dadathpadmaja

sthalo nnidrakaro ramaa bhagavathee geya prayoganvitha

Vishnu ssandra mrudanga vaadana paturdeva ssmanthaath

Sthitha sevam the thamanu pradosha samaye devam mrudaanipathim  //5//

Gandharva yakshapatha goraga siddha sadhya

Vidyadharamara varapsarasam ganashcha yenye

Triloka nilayassaha bhutha vargaa prapya

Pradosha samaye haraparshva sasamsthaah  //6//

Athah pradoshe shivaekaeva poojyotha

Naanye haripadma jaadyah

Thasmin maheshe vidhine jyamane

Sarve praseedanthi suradhi naathaah  //7//

Esha thei thanayah purva janmani brahmanotthamah

Prathigra hairvayo nityam nadanadyai sukarmabhih  //8//

Atho daridra maapanna putrasthe dwijabhaamini

Thaddosha hariharartham saranam yaathu shankaram  //9//
