O Raghunandana! Guard me from the sides, front and rear. Destroyer of Asuras like Mura and Khara! Come soon. I have not seen anyone more beautiful than you. As a moon rising in the celebrated ocean of the solar race, hero of unmatched valor! Come in state, with the kOdaNDa bow in hand, accompanied by LakshmaNa, ever at your beck and call to serve you! Protector of Gajendra! Prince of Ayodhya! Soul of praNava nAda! Come, lover of bhAgavatAs! Protect me well. Come, come!
