What is one's life worth if he is devoid of your grace? Raama! Whether one lives the full span of a hundred years and even wields sovereignity over the entire world? O Son of Dasharatha! King of Kings! You are as beautiful as a hundred Manmathas! Whenever I worship, you must condescend to appear before me, and look at me with affection. You must enlighten me on the mystery of life and creation and satisfy my nagging mind so that it remains calm and tranquil. What is the use of a life where the mind is subject to eternal conflict?

From Compositions of Tyagaraja by TK Govinda Rao.

Notation available here at Shivkumar Kalyanaraman's Krithi Archive.
