Treasure Trove – Translations of Sahasranamams, Suprabathams, Sthava Rajas and books

· Date:January 14, 2012

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

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

4. Books

7. Sri Ramo Dantham
