Daughter of the King of Videha. Redeemer of the fallen. Bless me with true devotion eternally to your feet. Dispenser
of temporal and spiritual benefactions here and now in this life and in the life beyond! Mother of Brahma and Cupid! Born in the Ocean of milk and adorned by golden ornaments! Sage Agastya's hymns do justice to your glory and delight you. You have united with Rama, the king of Kakustha! Your Form pervades the entire Universe. You have dark tresses resembling swarms of bees. You are the consort of Sri Rama,
the protector of Vedic sacrifices of sages. You bestow all blessings on us. As the unfailing Savious of devotees seeking refuge in you, you were instrumental in the destruction of the hundred-headed Ravana. O Red lotus-eyed! In consonance with your inherent compassion you have installed yourself in the heart of Tyagaraja.
