Translation s of Sahasranamams , Suprabathams , Sthavarajas and also books

Here are the references to the translations of Sahasranamams, Suprabathams , Sthavarajas and books that were done by me.

1.Sahasra namam
Prayers which recite 1000 names of various Gods is a very popular form in stotra literature. There are Sahasra Namam( thousand names) for almost all important Gods. Most of the Sahasra Namams are from the different Puranas. But nowadays [eople do compose Sahasranama . I have translated four Sahasra Namams. They are:-
1.Vishnu Sahasranamam
2.Lalitha Saharanamam
2.a. Phala Sruthi of Lalitha Sahasranamam
3.Lakshmi Sahasranamam
4.Shiva Sahasranam


Though there is a sloka in Valmiki Ramayana requesting Rama to wake up from sleep and do his duties, there are no references to any Suprabatha Stotras in Puranas. The oldest such works are found in Tamil and are called Thirupalliyezhuchi. The first famous Suprabatham is that of Lord Venkateswara. I have translated 7 such Suprabathams including two Thirupalliyezhuchi s from Tamil. They are

1.Venkateswara Suprabatham
2.Ayyappa Suprabatham(Malayalam)
3.Sathya Sai Suprabatham
4.Ganesa Suprabatham
5.Kamakshi Suprabatham
6.Viswanadha Suprabatham
7.Guruvayupuresaya Suprabatham
8.Thiruppalliyezhchi of Manikkavasagar
9.Thirupalliyezhuchi of THondaradipodi Azhvar


These are the king of stotras and are very rarely available . I have translated sthavarajas of various Gods. They are :-

1.Vishnu Sthavaraja
2.Krishna Sthava raja
3. Rama Sthavaraja
4.Lalitha Sthavaraja
5.Shanaischara Sthavaraja

3. Books
I have translated several books of prayers in to English verse. They are :-

1.Bhagwad Gita in verse
2.Devi Mahatmyam
3. Soundarya Lahari
4.Shivananda Lahari
6.Jnana pana
7. Sri Ramo Dantham
8.Sri Narada Bhakthi Suthram
9. Sundara Kandam
10.Krishna Karnamritham
11.Abhirami Andathi(Tamil)
