Source and Prop of the Universe, do I not belong to you? Can I bear separation from you even for a minute? Lord of celestials. Cherished friend of Vedic scholars. O Lotus-eyed one. O Mainstay of righteousness. O Eternal one. Wedded to Truth, possessing unlimited prowess and redoubtable valor in war, having a charmingly divine form, you are the celebrated Hero of daily festival and festivities all year. This TyAgarAja who worships you declares that he is a genuine devotee.
