Rama! Adored by Siva! Helper to cross the ocean of Samsara! Treasure of virtues! Adored by Brahma!
How monstrous must be my accumulated sing, hardened like a rock to make it impossible for you to forgive me in spite of repeated appeals!
O Destroyer of sins! Gem of the Raghu race! One of mellifluent speech. Treasure of the hapelss! O PUrifier! My sorry plight and plaintive appeals do not provoke the slightest
sympathy in you. Indeed, I must be the vilest of sinners. O Bestower of compassion! The mere contact of your feet transformed a stone to a precious damsel. Your arrow spared a crow. Can't you relieve me of my sins and protect me?
When I am thus tossed about and men of youthful vigor ridicule me, don't you feel invoked? Whom can I appeal this to?
