Dhyana on ASHTAKSHARAM:
savyam paadam prasaarya shritha: durithaharam dakshiNam kunjayithvaa jaanoon aadaaya savyEtaram ithara bhujam naaga bhOgE nidhaaya /
paschaath baahu dvayEna prathibhaTa shamanE dhaarayan shanka chakrEdEvee bhooshaadhi jushTO janayathu jagathaam sharma VaikunTa naatha: //
Meaning:Sitting on Adhisesha, He has His left foot (savyam paadam) dangling(prasaarya) from the left knee down. The right foot that is slightly bent(kunjayitvaa) and resting on Adhisesha quickly removes (shritha durithaharam) the obstacles of Prapannas. He rests left hand on His right knee(jaanun aadhaaya savyE). His other hand is resting on Adhisesha (Itharabujam naaga bhOgE nidhaaya). He dons the Conch and the powerful disc on the upper two hands for demolishing the evil forces (PrathibaTa shamanE). This Lord of Paramapada rejoices with His Devis on either side and in adorningornaments(dEvee booshaadhi yokthou:). Let Him (sharma VaikunTha naatha ) protect the entire world(janayathu Jagathaam).

You sit on the mantapam in the shape of the golden lion throne(souvarna simhaasanE) studded with gems from the milky ocean (ksheeraambOdhi Ratna mantapa). Mahaalakshmi embraces you fondly with a pleasantsmile sitting on your left lap (vaamaangE sthithayaam prasanna vadanaamSrikaanthyaa aalingitham). You wear the sharp staff (DhOr danDaangita),conch (sanka), lotus (pankaja). Mace (gadhaa) and disc (chakrai:). Why am Idoing this? I shun this cycle of birth and death ( janma vimukhO)
