Bhaktamar Stotra 9 - 12

Astam tva stavanamasta samasta dosham
tvat samkathapi jagatam duritani hanti
dure sahatrakirana kurute prabhiva
padmakareshu jalajani vikasha bhanji - (9)

The brilliant sun is far away still at down its soft glow makes the dropping Lotus buds bloom .Similarly , O Jina let alone the immeasurable powers of your eulogize  mere utterance of your name with devotion destroys the sins of the mundane beings purifies them.
Natyabhutam bhuvana bhushana ! bhutanatha
bhutairgunairbhuvi bhavantamabhistuvantha
tulya bhavanti bhavato nanu tena kim va
bhutyashritam ya iha natmasamam karoti - (10)
O Lord of the living ! O eminence of the world !

Dristva bhavanthamanimesha vilokaniyum
nanyatra toshamupayati janasya chakshuh
pitva payah shashikara dyuti dugda sindhuh
ksharam jalam jalanidherachitumka ichchhet ? - (11)

Yaih shantaragaruchibhih paramanubhistam
nirmapitstribhuvanailka lalmabhuta
tavanta eva khalu tepyanavh prithivam
yatte samanamapuram na hi rupamasti - (12)

O crown of three realms ! It appears as if the quiescence and harmony imparting ultimate particles become extinct after constituting your body , because I do not witness such out of the world magnificence other then yours.
