Sastha Dasakam
(Ten verses about Sastha)
Translated by P.R.Ramachander

(Sastha is the son of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. He was born in this world to kill an ogress called Mahishi. Sastha assumed the form of a baby and was found by a king belonging to Pandya Dynasty ruling over Pandalam of Kerala. He was named Iyappa .After his life’s objectives were over; he entered in to a Temple in the forests of Kerala called Sabarimala. Millions of devotees congregate there every year to have a glimpse of this god)

And who is becomes pleased very quickly.

Salutations and salutations to that Sastha,
Who is the lord of all beings,
Who is perennially ever happy,
Who shows mercy towards all beings,
And I pray,” Protect me great hero.”

Ashyama komala vishala thanum Vichithram,
Vasoavasana arunothphala dama hastham,
Uthunga rathna magudam, kutilagra kesam,
Sastharamishta varadam saranam prapadhye.

I seek the protection of Sastha, who loves his devotees,
Who has the peculiar pretty black body color,
Who lives till the end of the world,
Who has dawn like hands which resemble lightning
Who has tall crown made of costly gems,
And who has curly and pretty hair.
