Lord! You are the chosen deity of our family. Are you not the
very breath for my life? I crave your pardon for not having realized your indispensablity to me. I now bank on your mercy to accept me as a potential devotee.
O Madhava! One joined with Sita and Lakshmana! Bestower of
auspiciosness! Possessor of history full of truth! Protector of vedic rites of Vishvamitra!
intimate with Anjaneya, son of Vayu! One surrounded by people seeking refuge! Worshipped by Brahma!
O terrible sun that melts the dew of sins of the virtuous! One having a voice clear and bold like thunder! One indomitable Hero in warfare with demons!
O Raghava! Supreme amongst all! O Radiant! One who destroyed
effortlessly with hands, the mighty Ravana, the king of Lanka!
One who resides in the pure heart of Tyagaraja! One who has the sun and the moon for eyes! Lord of Janaki! You are the chosen deity of our family.
