pallavi: O mind! Engage yourself constantly in the singing the glory of Rama.
He is the mime of all good things.
He is the sun, which dispels the darkness of ignorance.
He is praised by Shiva who was worshipped by Ravana, no less a person of the mighty Rakshasa king, with a hundred heads.
He is an inexhaustible treasure from which devotees can obtain whatever they desire.
He is the protector of the devotees, praised by Kapali-the Paramashiva, virtuous; one who prevailed as the God of death and destroyed the three Rakshasas who, roaming about in their flying fortresses, caused untold miseries to devas and sages.
He is beautiful and a warrior, prop of Tyagaraja, matchless wielder of His bow and arrows, Abode of the virtues.
He is the float, which enables devotees to cross this vale of sorrow.
Father of Brahma, intimate friend of Hanuman, Spouse of the revered Janaki.
He has the Sun and the Moon as his eyes, and He is intimate to Tyagaraja.
