Mâdhava, who was renowned by the name of Râjavallabha, who seemed to be a near relative

protecting refugees, who was devoted to (Vishṇu) the lord of Lakshmî, whose fame was constant, (and who was) the light of the earth,─ having given a lamp, which was not to cease
(burning) as long as the moon and the sun shall exist, to the temple of the lord of Lakshmî,

Hail ! In the 45th year of the increasing and victorious reign of the asylum of the whole

on the occasion of the Vishuva-saṁkrânti in Chaitra,─ Vêlâṇḍu Mâdhavuṇḍu, alias Râjavallabha-Pallavarayaṇḍu, the lord of Kaḍambaṅgu[ḍi] in Manni-nâṇḍu, (a subdivision)

wick must not cease (burning) as long as the moon and the sun shall exist, to Nârâyaṇadêva,

of ghee has to be supplied daily (for feeding the lamp).
