O RAghava! How often, how long have I solicited your grace? Why such inordinate obstinacy and stiffness in relenting even though you are the inner soul of my being? I treasure you in my heart and solemnly believe and hope that whenever you may choose to relent there can be no greater bliss than reposing my entire faith in you. O Essence of every being! One who rules the Universe and bows to none!
