O Ocean of Mercy, Shri Rama of charming face! the repository
of excellent virtues! You are the whole Universe; how then could I blame it (i.e any part of it)?
The realization of true Bhaktas is in one way, while the method adopted by the people, who do not know the truth about you, is in another direction.
Will people lovingly chant your holy name and spend their time in
meditating upon you?
Will people offer unto you the merit (Punya) they have acquired?
Will they understand your nature and live accordingly?
Will they heartily worship you and frequently meditate on you?
Will they pant for a direct darshana of you? Will they not gloat in joy even if they come into possession of the nine treasures?
Will they say and believe that you are immanent in all things and exult in realizing that they are identical with you yourself?
Will they get together, speaking of you among themselves? Will they see the Lord, the redeemer from Samsara?
