O Rama! Adored by Brahma! Do come and sport in my heart and be rid of your exhaustion. One who helps to cross the ocean of Samsara!
O Worshipped by Brahma, one who is born from the Lotus! Loved by Anjaneya! At your sudden, unexpected arrival,
I felt embarrassed. I could not receive you in the royal style befitting you and make offerings to match. But you set me at rest
by cheerfully accepting whatever I could extend, and what is more, assured me that you would take care of me and proclaim to the world that I belong to you.
Aren't you the Lord protecting Tyagaraja?
