Translation

I always meditate upon the God Shukra, the knower of all truths.

Rescue me quickly Oh Shukra, Lord of the houses of Tula and Vrisa, and sound counsellor to all demons. Whose one eye was safeguarded by the grace of Kesava, who is the wearer of the crown and of white substance.

Whose beneficial influence on the various constellations is for the duration of twenty years, one having eight vargas, the poet, beneficent planet for marital bliss, inimical to Surya and Brhaspati, who while in navamsha, hora, drekana, vakra, nicaj, ucca, svaksetra, varakendra, and in the mulatrikone ... and while in the different amshas, trimsamsha, sastyamsha, airavatamsha, pariyatamsha, gopuramsha, bestows royalty and kingdoms and delights Guruguha.

Artists:

Madurai Mani Iyer,Mayavaram Govindaraja Pillai,Vellore Ramabhadran & Alangudi Ramachandran
