Meaning: from "Compositions of Tyagaraja" by TK Govinda Rao
How grand and imposing the wedding of SIta is! Praised by AnjanEya, this
Hero of countless exploits, having the sun and the moon as His eyes, and
possessing a frame of ravishing beauty is an unfailing Protector of His
devotees and Bestower of prosperity and Beatitude, which is a part of His
LIlas. He causes terror in the minds of RAkshasas. His calmness and
composure reveal Him as one who has no more desires to be fulfilled.
Sporting a radiant blue hue, He is the source of Bliss for the world.
Resider of AyOdhya, He is the Prop of the entire world. A peerless warrior
in battles, He is beyond the ken of men of arrogance and haughtiness. He
is tall and courageous, reminding one of the great Mount MEru. He is the
Hero figuring in the Scriptures. With an unmatched form, He is the
mainstay of His devotees, whose sins He wipes out graciously. Celebrated
by Lord Siva in song and music, He is the raft enabling deserving mortals
to cross the ocean of SamsAra. That is the aim of His incarnation in the
solar race, He whom TyAgarAja worships.
Now often sung in kurinji.
