RaghurAma, deign to protect me. You are as fascinating as a statue of emerald. You create a feeling of awe and fear in common mortals. Protector of Indra, I see no prospect of my sins being destroyed. You do not have the heart to eliminate them on my behalf. At the time of coming down from the ocean of milk, all your intense compassion seems to have been dissolved in it. Or else you must have lost your BrahmAstra, your mission of protecting your devotees, in the battles you have waged. Maybe when you left the forest, you left behind your solemn pledge that whoever surrendered to you would have no cause to grieve. As you deliberately chose to be born as a man with divine beauty, has your divinity deserted you? Supreme among kings! You are worshipped by TyAgarAja himself. Why then this dissembling?
