For the past ten years I have been doing translation of various stotrams,. I have so far translated 600 stotra rathnas. I am now trying to look back as to that I have done.

Possibly the greatest contribution to the stotra literature has come from Adhi Shankara. His utter sense of devotion , simplicity in choice of words, fluency and very musical writings have endeared his writings to all his devotees. I had the good fortune to translate some of his great works in to English and they are:-

2.Govindashtakam -
3.Bhagwan Manasa Pooja-

What is stortram?

Can you explain what stotram, stotra rathnas are at all?

From which language you translated them?

Some background?

Stotrams are Hindu prayers. They mean praise of God. I have translated these from Sanskrit. Stotra rathna means prayer gems
