Wielder of the Kodanda bow! My prostrations. Look at me compassionately. One who mounts Garuda and reposes on Adisesha! One with the sun and moon as His eyes! Lord! Did I profess
faith in you for mere name and fame, to be looked upon with admiration and envy or impose on people as a cherished devotee of yours? People of this town and street are not of homogenous disposition, conducive to
tread the path of devotion. I have therefore come to you to be uplifted and protected.
