may He bring you a golden vishu

शान्ताकरम् भुजगशयनम् पद्मनाभम् सुरेशम्
विश्वाधारम् गगनसदृशम् मेघवर्णम् शुभाम्गम्
लक्ष्मीकान्तम्  कमलनयनम् योगि हृत् ध्यानगम्यम्
वन्दे विष्णुम् भवभयहरम् सर्व लोकैक नाथम्
śāntākaram bhujagaśayanam padmanābham sureśam
viśvādhāram gaganasadṛśam meghavarṇam śubhāmgam
lakṣmīkāntam  kamalanayanam yogi hṛt dhyānagamyam
vande viṣṇum bhavabhayaharam sarva lokaika nātham


May my worship be directed to the all pervading Vishnu, 
who is serenity personified in form and spirit, 
who reclines on the bed formed by the Divine serpant Anantha, 
who is having a lotus carrying brahma sprouting from his navel, 
who is the lord of all the gods, 
who manifests himself as the foundation and edifice for the  whole universe, 
who resembles the sky in vastness and black cloud in colour,  
who is having  well shaped and beautiful limbs, 
who is the consort of the Goddess of wealth Lakshmi, 
whose pair of eyes  that resemble the petals of a lotus, 
who is the ultimate thing to be realized in the hearts of the sages sitting in deep meditation 
who is the annihilator of the fear and woes of the beings mired in this earthly life,
and 
who is the one and only master of the whole world.
