Lord! Should you not grant me wisdom and redeem me? O the rider on Garuda! Are you cross with me? Constantly chanting your name has made my mind pure and stainless. So can't you initiate me into the ultimate advaitic doctrine so that I may realize and experience the unity of the Supreme Paramaatmaa and the individual Jeevatma and identify myself with the entire creation of the fourteen worlds, human beings and celestials like Kinnaraas, Kimpurushaas, and sages like Naarada? O Supreme and Perfect One. O the Impeccable one! Bestower of eternal Bliss! The one prayed to by Tyagaraja!
