[Though I could not find the text of this stotra in the web, the recording of this stotra as sung by Bombay sisters is available at: manoramic.com/music/...datta-aparadha-kshamapana-stotram/12227]
1. Dathathreyam thwam namami praseedha,
Thwam sarvathma, sarva kartha na Veda,
Kopyantham they srava devaddhi deva,
Jnatha ajnathan may aparadhaan kshamaswa.
I salute Dathathreya to please him,
For he is the soul and doer and,
Is the God of Gods at the end of Vedas,
And he would pardon mistakes done knowingly or unknowingly.
2. Thwad udbhawathwath thwad dheena adheethwath,
Thwameva vandhya upasya aathman,
Adhapi moudyath smaranam na they may,
Krutham kshamaswa Priya krun mahathman.
Due to your birth and your partiality for the oppressed,
You are the only one to be served and worshipped,
But if due to my being confused, I am not remembering you,
Oh dear and great God, please pardon me.
3. Bhoga apavarga pradhamathma bandhum,
Karunya sindhum, parihaya bandhum,
Hithaya cha anyam parimargayanthi,
Haa maadruso nashta druso vimooda.
Hey ignorant one, who is blind and sees only wealth.
The fulfiller of pleasures, the closest dear one to us,
The sea of mercy and the joy giving relative,
Does not visualize anything other than our good.
4. Na math samo yadhyapi papa Kartha,
Na thwath samo adhopi hi papa harthaa,
Na math samo anyo dayaneeya aarya,
Na thwatha sama kwapi dayalu varya.
There is no one equal to me in doing sins,
There is no one equal to you in destroying sins,
There is no gentleman who is as pitiable as me,
And there is no one who is as merciful as you.
5. Anadha nadhosi, sudheena bandho,
Sri sanukampamrutha poorna sindho,
Thwad pada bhakthim thava dsasa dasyam,
Thwadheeya manthrartha drudaika nishtaam.
6. Guru smruthim, nirmala budhi madhi,
Vyadhi kshayam, may vijayam cha dehi,
Ishartha sidhim, vara loka vasyam,
Dhanannavrudhim, vara go samrudhim.
You are the lord of the orphans, good friend of the oppressed,
The God who is the complete sea of the nectar of pity,
And the devotion to your feet, the service to your devotees,
And also constant meditation on your mantras and their meaning,
As well as learning Vedas from Gurus and a pure and clean heart,
Would bring down illnesses, result in victories,
And also result in fulfillment of all desires, attract all world,
Daily increase of money and lead to plentiful wealth.
7. Puthradhi labdhim, ma udharathaam cha,
Deheesa may chasthvabhayam cha sarvatha,
Brahmagni bhoobhyo nama oshadeebhya,
Vache namo vak pathaye cha Vishnave.
Please give me blessing in getting sons and other wealth,
And be generous in helping me to get blessings of Lakshmi,
For I have completely surrendered to you for ever,
My salutations to Brahmas, fire, earth, herbs, words, lord of words and Vishnu.
8. Santhasthu bhoornassiva manthareeksham,
Dhyouscha abhayam nosthu disa shikaya,
Aapascha vidhyuth paripanthu deva,
Sam sarvatho may abhayamasthu santhi.
Let there be peace in the earth and in the nature,
Let me surrender to the apex of that God,
And let that god give water through Rain,
So that everywhere there would be safety and peace.
