Shree Uvasaggahar Stotra Meaning
Uvasaggaharam Päsam, Päsam Vandämi Kamma-ghan-mukkam; Visahar-vis-ninnäsam, Mangal Kallän Äväsam ( 1 )
You are an embodiment of infinite grace, you are the destroyer of all obstacles and difficulties. I surrender myself in your Sharan and express heartfelt Vandan Bhavna to you. When a seeker experiences Oneness with the Divine, it brings his innate Divinity to life and he starts experiencing his own inner Divinity! O Parmatma, may my Vandan Bhaav have such strength that it helps me experience an unbreakable Oneness with you. Your intense Sadhna has freed you from the shackles of Karmas. Your soul glistens with such purity that no Karma can ever taint your transcendence. May my inner Purusharth, my devotion be so intense that it helps me nurture such purity within me and free me from my Karmas.

The mere recitation of this Stotra with unconditional faith has the ability to make my Soul worthy of achieving Moksh. Your Sanidhya, Your Stuti, Your Stavna is like the Chintamani gemstone and the Kalpavruksh tree. The Chintamani is an incessantly rare and precious gemstone, and at any point of time, there are thousands of Devas (celestial beings) in its service. The one who possesses this gemstone can get whatever he desires. Similarly, the Kalpavruksh is a wish-fulfilling tree. Anyone who stands under this tree and asks for something, is granted with whatever he wants. Your Stavna easily fulfills materialistic desires, but more importantly, it also has the ability to fulfill a seeker’s desire to reach the state of Ultimate Satisfaction – Moksh. The faith a seeker places in your Stavna, evolves and opens the Samyak Darshan (Right Vision) within him, and makes him capable of achieving liberation.

O Jineshwar Parmatma, just like the ocean witnesses a strong current of waves on seeing the candescence of the moon, may my heart evolve in deep gratitude and bhakti bhaav on experiencing Your presence and dissolving in Your memories!
