O Rama! What life is this ? Why did this fall into my lot, wherein I am not able to meet and converse frequently with Hari as beautiful as a crore of Cupids and wherein I cannot set eyes on His bosom decked with pearl necklaces gamboling daintily.
What a destiny that denies me the privilege of embracing to my heart's content this wise and Omniscient Lord who is such a profound Lover of music? Not being able to see this Lord, who reclines on Adisesha on the waves of the Milk-ocean and who is worshipped by Tyagaraja. My mind is in turmoil.
