I bow to Lord Vishnu, who has a serene appearance, who is the preserver and the protector of the universe, who is peaceful, who rests on the great serpent bed, from whose navel springs the Lotus of the creative power, who is the Supreme Being, who sustains and supports the entire universe, who is all-pervading as the infinite sky, who is dark like the clouds and has a beautiful and auspicious Body. The Lord of Lakshmi, the lotus-eyed One, whom the Yogis are able to perceive through meditation, salutations to Lord Vishnu who removes the fear of worldly existence and who is the Lord of all worlds (Lokas).
