Transcendent Lord! Of speech as delicious as nectar! Of radiance like the splendour of the
moon! Over a long period, I have been drinking deeply of the nectar of the story of your life and
feel immensely happy and satisfied. Protect me, O lord of peerless beauty. Determined to avoid the
company of nefarious and profane characters, this Tyagaraja, who seeks the association of men who
serve you with unalloyed devotion, pray protect, O Paraatpara, abode of virtues.
