Gem of the solar dynasty of unmatched beauty! Refuge of the meek and oppressed! You have shown me sufficient indifference and disregard already ! It is time for you to make amends. Consider my appeal for you grace compassionately and respond with affection. O Worshipped by Shiva! Why be proud in spite of being indifferent to this helpless devotee? What is it that you have scored? Who else will protect me? O abode of virtues! O spotless one! You lifted by hand the Govardhana hill , you are everything to Tyagaraja.
From Compositions of Tyagaraja by TK Govinda Rao.
