Your names are auspicious and chant worthy
Oh Lord of celestials! Kesava! Even the wicked ones attain salvation, just by the mention of your divine names.
The continuous utterance of your name, (even invertedly as MA-RA) empowered Valmiki to scripture Ramayana, which, still continues in purifying and flourishing the universe. This name is to Sita what moon is to the bird Cakora.
Even the brahmin Ajqmila, whose deeds were totally despicable, who indulged with unchaste women, attained salvation just by uttering your name only once, and that too in ignorance.
Lord Balachandrasekhara the Paramasiva abies in the pristine mount Kailasa, in the company of goddess Parvathi the daughter of the mountains, also chant the divine names of Lord Padmanabha, incessantly.
