I bow to Shankara, the embodiment of Nada, with my mind and
body. To Him, the essence of blissful Samaveda, the best of the vedas, I bow every time. To him, who is delighting in the art of the seven svaras, Sa-Ri-Ga-Ma-Pa-Dha-Ni, born of his five faces, Sadyojata etc., I bow to Him, the destroyer of KAla, the protector of pure-hearted Tyagaraja, I bow.
