स्वायम्भुवो मनुरथो जनसर्गशीलो
दृष्ट्वा महीमसमये सलिले निमग्नाम् ।
स्रष्टारमाप शरणं भवदङ्घ्रिसेवा-
तुष्टाशयं मुनिजनै: सह सत्यलोके ॥१॥

स्वायम्भुव: मनु: Swaayambhuva Manu
अथ: जनसर्गशील: then, who was engaged in creation
दृष्ट्वा महीम्- seeing the earth,
असमये सलिले निमग्नाम् at a wrong time, being immersed in water
स्रष्टारम्-आप शरणं in the creator, Brahmaa, sought refuge
भवत्-अङ्घ्रि-सेवा in the service of Thy lotus feet
तुष्ट-आशयं whose heart delighted
मुनिजनै: सह along with the other sages
सत्यलोके in Satyaaloka

Then Swaayambhuva Manu who was engaged in the work of creation, saw the earth emerged in water, untimely (when there was no Pralaya). He went to Satyaloka, in supplication to Brahmaa, the creator, whose heart delighted in the service of Thy lotus feet, along with the other sages.

कष्टं प्रजा: सृजति मय्यवनिर्निमग्ना

कष्टं alas!
प्रजा: सृजति मयि- while I am creating beings
अवनि: -निमग्ना the earth is immersed

कल्पय तत्-प्रजानाम् provide therefore for the beings
इति-एवम्-एष thus he (Brahmaa)
कथित: मनुना स्वयंभू: - being told by Manu Swaayambhu
अम्भोरुहाक्ष O Lotus eyed Lord!
तव पादयुगं Thy two feet
व्यचिन्तीत् (he) contemplated on

Swaayambhuva Manu told the lotus born Brahmaa that it was a pity that the earth was submerged as he was creating beings. He asked for a place to be created for the beings. Hearing this Brahmaa started to contemplate on Thy two lotus feet, for a solution to the problem.

हा हा विभो जलमहं न्यपिबं पुरस्ता-

समभव: Thou emerged
शिशु-कोल-रूपी in a child boar's form

Brahmaa took rafuge at Thy pair of lotus feet saying that he had earlier also drunk the waters and that the earth was still submerging and he did not know what to do. From Brahmaa's nostrils, who was saying thus, Thou emerged in the form of a child boar.

कोऽसावचिन्त्यमहिमा किटिरुत्थितो मे
