Your thighs (uuru) are well-shaped (caaruu) , thick (ghana), charming to behold (masR^Na rucau). and steal the heart (citta corau) of Lakshmi (ramaayaaH). Your two thighs (tava ubhau uuru ) are always (anisham) covered by the yellow cloth around the waist (piita-cela-aavR^ta-angau) , as if (dhruvam) fearing (vishangkya) that they will excite the whole world (vishva-kshobham) [if left uncovered] !

Your two knees (jaanu-dvayam) look like (cchaayam) caskets (samudga) containing(dhR^ta) a collection (paalii) of all the objects desired (samasta-artha) by devotees who prostrate before you (aanamraaNaam) ; which are meant to be distributed (purastad-nyasana) to the devotees. [ Meditation on these knees fulfils all the desires of the devotees].

Your charming ( manojne). forelegs also (janghe ca ), are tapering proportionally (krama-pR^thula).

I worship (nishheve) [ meditate upon] your thighs, knees and forelegs.
