Oh Ladies ! Come along and join in to see Rangapathi !
Aadhi Kavi VaalmIki says that Sri RanganAthA was worshipped by
Sri RaamachandrA . He is indeed the treasure house of all charms.
He is wearing today a shawl that is priceless. He adorns beautiful
ear ornaments. He displays His saamudrikhA LakshaNams befitting
One of prime age ( paruava vAlibhan/ILankumaran ). Above all these
aspects of His matchless beauty , He is indeed the Parama-
Purushan celebrated and saluted by the VedAs and Upanishads as
the SarvAdhAran , JagadhAnandhakan and Jagath Rakshakan .
His most beautiful face defies the full moon in its beauty ;
His words are spoken with such maadhuryam , which makes His speech
liltingly sweet . He confers the bliss of happiness ( Aanandham )
on His devotees. He is the most lovable personality with whom
one readily falls in deep love. He permeates all aagamAs and
the VedAs .Oh Ladies ! Please come forward and enjoy the beauty
of this Lord of Srirangam .
