1, 2 & 3 Slokas of Sunderkand

Sloka 1
Santam sasvatamaprameyamanagham nirvanasantipradam
Brahmasambhuphanindrasevyamanisam vedantavedyamvibhum
Ramakhyam jagadisvaram suragurum mayamanusyam harim
Vande'ham karunakaram raghuvaram bhupalacudamanim || 1 ||


Rama, Lord of the Universe

I pray to the Lord of the Universe called Rama, chief of the Raghus, supreme amongst kings, a mine of loving tenderness, destroying all sins, visible in human form because of his maya (power of illusion), greatest of the deities, all pervading,worth knowing through Vedanta (the Upanishads) constantly served by Brahma, Shambhu and Sheshnag (the thousand-headed snake on which Vishnu sleeps), granting supreme bliss in the form of moksha or salvation, sinless, beyond mundane perception, eternal and calm.


Sloka 2
Nanya sprha raghupate hrdaye'smadiye
Satyam vadami ca bhavanakhilantaratma |
Bhaktim prayaccha raghupungava nirbharam me
Kamadidosarahitam kuru manasam ca || 2 ||


Lord of the Raghus

I tell the truth, oh Lord of the Raghus! You very well know that there is no other wish in my heart since you are the inner soul of everyone. Oh chief of the Rahgus! Grant me absolute religious devotion for you and strip my mind of lust and other vices.


3rd Sloka
Atulitabaladhamam hemasailabhadeham
Danujavanakrsanum jnaninamagraganyam |
Sakalagunanidhanam vanaranamadhisam
Raghupatipriyabhaktam vatajatam namami || 3 ||


Shri Hanuman

I bow to Shri Hanuman, son of the wind god,the lovable devotee of Shri Raghunath (Lord of the Raghus),the master of the monkeys,the trove of all virtues, best of the wise,equivalent to the blazing fire for destroying the forest of demons,with a body shining like the Sumeru mountain of gold,and the abode of immeasurable strength.
