Play Kolatheerasha Sthavam Audio
To the one who has
Devotees as beloveds,
To the one who annihilates
All the becoming-related sufferings,
To the one who proffers liberation,
To the one who is always served
By hosts of silent sages (munis),
To you my obeisance, O Bhagavan,
O the Lord of both Sri and Bhu,
O Hari, please take away
All my afflictions.

(“Bhakthapriyaayabhavashokavinaashanaaya
mukthipradaayamunivrindanishevidaaya
nakhthandivambhagavathenadirasmadeeya
SreeBhoopathehara hare sakalaamayammae”)

Bhakthapriyaaya= the one who is dearest to the devotees.
Bhavashokavinaashanaaya= the one who destroys the sorrows in the ocean of the material life.
Mukthipradaaya= the one who gives salvation.
Munivrindanishevidaaya=the one who is served by several saints, who are wisdom seekers and accomplishers of Truth.
nakhthandivambhagavathenadirasmadeeya=O Lord, my respectful greetings to you without any difference of day or night.
SreeBhoopathe = the Lord of both Sreeand Bhu 
Hara hare sakalamayammae= O Hari, please take away all my afflictions and difficulties

Explanation:
In thisconcluding verse, Guru reaffirms the brilliance of Lord Vishnu, who is dearest to the devotees and who dissipates the sorrows emerging in the material world. As a step towards spiritual heights, this verse also finds place in clarifying the roles of the Supreme Lord, who liberates us from all bonding andthe one who is served and respected by great saints, who are wisdom seekers and accomplishers of Truth.
This verse is ending with an emphasis on devotees’ praise towards the Lord throughout day and night without any difference. It implies the devotees’ confidence in Lord, who protects him. Our Divine thoughts should not only be limited to the time when we pray, but also in every action fed by our conscious mind. That would be a noteworthy convergence ofBhakthi,Karmamand Dhyanam.

This poem is written in Vasanthathilakam meter and has a musical knot embedded in every verse. This peculiarity makes the devotee who singsthe poem merging into a deep spiritual-devotional splendor.
