Bahum Maha JayaMangala Gatha

A video chant of Bahum — Maha JayaMangala Gatha (Thai Pali). With the pali word in the video subtitle and the english traslation below.
(Translation)

1.Mara, the Evil One, assuming a fierce form with a thousand arms; each brandishing a deadly weapon, stormed forward roaring, accompanied by his formidable hosts and riding on his elephant, Girimekhala.

Him the Sovereign Sage conquered by evoking the might of his exalted perfection of giving among others.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours !

2.Even more fiendish than Mara was Alavaka, the impetuous and haughty yakkha who  fought a nightlong battle with the Lord.

Him the Sovereign Sage conquered through enduring patience flowing from his unequaled self-mastery.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours !

3.Provoked to run amok, Nal?agiri, the king tusker, like a raging forest fire murderously assailed all in his path, and struck such horror in them as would Indra’s thunder bolt, the irresistible destroyer.

Him the sovereign Sage tamed by sprinkling over him the cooling water of allembracing love.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours

4.With sword upraised in expert hands did the savage robber, Angulimala, pursue the Lord for a full three leagues.

Him the Sovereign Sage conquered by his supernatural powers.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours !

5.Posing as a pregnant woman by tying a piece of wood to her belly, Cinca falsely accused (the Buddha) with lewd words in the midst of a devout congregation.

Her the Sovereign Sage subdued through his imperturbable serenity.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours !

6.With his perverted intelligence, the wandering mendicant, Saccaka, invariably distorted the truth. Pretending to be the very banner of learning, he only blinded his own mental vision as he went about indulging in intellectual disputations.

Him the Sovereign Sage conquered by his illuminating lamp of wisdom.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours !

7.The gifted but perverted king of the Nagas, Nandopananda by name, possessed great psychic power and was hostile. By instructing the Elder Moggallana, his spiritual son mighty in supernatural attainments, the Sovereign Sage rendered the Naga king powerless and transformed him.

Thus through a supernormal mode of spiritual instruction intelligible to his kind, did the Master conquer the Naga.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours !

8.Though a deity of great purity, radiance and power, Baka, the Brahma god, was nevertheless in the grip of pernicious views, like an arm tightly held by a snake’s coils.

Him the Sovereign Sage cured by means of wisdom.
By his mighty triumph may joyous victory be yours !

9.He who, day after day without lethargy, recites and recollects these eight hymns of the Exalted One’s glorious triumphs that wise man, having overcome many and diverse obstacles, shall attain the bliss of Deliverance.

10.The exalted and compassionate Deliverer, for the welfare of all, fulfilled the Perfections and attained the Summit state of Supreme Enlightenment.
By this avowal of truth may triumph and weal be yours !

11.Victorious under the Bodhi Tree, being blissful among the Buddhas, He
climaxed the joy of the Sakyans by his conquest of Mara at his Undefeated
Seat, witnessed by the Earth which was symbolized by a lotus leaf.

Even so, may your victory be blessed with triumph and weal.

12.The time when people perform a good deed is indeed an auspicious
occasion, a bright dawn, a moment well-caught in time and is the right
worship of holy people. At that time their actions of body, of speech and of mind along with their aspiration become auspicious. Having performed
auspicious deeds, they beget auspicious benefits.

13.May all blessings come to yours, May all gods protect yours;
By the grace of all Enlightened Ones, May weal ever abound in you !

14.May all blessings come to yours, May all gods protect yours;
By the grace of the Sacred Teachings, May weal ever abound in you !

15.May all blessings come to yours, May all gods protect yours;
By the grace of the Holy Order, May weal ever abound in you !
