Vishnu Shodasa Nama Stotram Lyrics


Oushade Chinthaye Vishnum,
Bhojane cha Janardhanam,
Sayane Padmanabham cha,
Vivahe cha Prajapathim.

Yuddhe Chakradharam devam,
Pravase cha Trivikramam,
Narayanam Thanu thyage,
Sreedharam priya sangame,

Duswapne smara, Govindam,
Sankate Madhu soodhanam,
Kanane Narasimham cha,
Pavake Jalasayinam,

Jalamadhye Varaham cha,
Parvathe Raghu nandanam,
Gamane Vamanam Chaiva,
Sarva Karyeshu Madhavam.

Shodasaithani Naamani,
Prathar uthaaya ya padeth,
Sarva papa vinirmuktho,
Vishnu lokam samopnuyath.
