Meanings (From T.K. Govinda Rao's Book)

I ("aham") take refuge ("ashraya" or "vaaram") in Angaaraka, the divine Mandaara tree to the humble dependent devotees ("srita jana") who pray ("vinata") to him. He is the presiding deity of Mangalavaara - tuesday. He is the son ("kumaaram") of the Earth ("bhoomi").

He is the Lord ("pathim") of the cherished ("sringaaraka") Aries ("mesha") and Scorpio ("vruschika") zodiac signs. He shines with a reddish ("raktha") form ("angam"). He wears ("dharam") a red ("raktha") dress ("ambara"). He carries a sword ("shakti") and a trident ("soola").

He is the auspicious one ("mangalam"). He wears a necklace ("kambu") on his beautiful neck ("galam"). He has lovely ("manjula-tara") feet ("pada-yugalam") and is the bestower ("daayaka") of auspiciousness ("mangala"). He rides ("thurangam") on a goat ("mesha") and whose highest apogee ("utthungam") is Capricorn ("makara raasi").

He is worshipped ("sevitha") by gods ("sura") and demons ("daanava"). His face ("vakthram") is always beaming ("vilasitha") and smiling ("smitha"). He is the bestower ("pradam") of wealth of lands ("dharani") and brotherhood ("braathrur-kaarakam"). He has red ("raktha") eyes ("netram"). He is the protector ("rakshakam") of the afflicted ("dheena"). He is worshipped ("poojitha") in the Vaidyanaatha Kshetra. He is favored ("kataaksha-anugraha patram") by three groups of divine teachers such as Divayugha, Siddhaugha and Maanavauga in the Sri-Chakra worship. He is favored ("anugraha patram") by Guruguha. He is the friend ("mitram") of the sun ("Surya" or "bhaanu"), the moon ("chandra") and Jupiter ("brihaspati" or "guru").
