He aimed the arrows to cut the ten heads of RaavaNa;

He churned (the ocean) using Mt. Mantharam as a churning staff;

He made the broad day light dark by the circular discus;

He drove the chariot of Arjuna, his devotee;

He is like a green-hued cloud;

He is Thirumaal (Vishnu) and He praises You!

Please do protect me and confer grace on me this day!
