O Lotus-eyed one! I do not find happiness in anything else but you. The joy you give me thrills me. Your extraordinary beauty, the manner in which you wield the effulgent KODANDA – bow and the unfailing arrows. The intimacy with which you move with your subjects, the soft and soothing way you talk! All these traits combined make you peerless. Enjoyer of music! You are full of compassion, without any trace of worldly attachment. Are you not the very personification of Tyagaraja’s fortune?
