Meaning:
Will it ever be possible to have the blessed privilege of such a Darshana? Even for ascetics involved in austerities, best among BHUSURAS or DEVAs, will it be possible? Sages like Narada and Tumburu sing His glory in mellifluous stains. Devotees of the caliber of Ambarisha chant your names in ecstasy, scattering choice flowers all over. Coral-lipped celestial damsels dance all around. Brahma and Indra stand on either side proclaiming the Lord's genealogy and titles sonorously. Heavenly damsels fan you in the backdrop of the ringing sounds of the bells set in their ornaments. And there, on the gently swinging serpent couch adorned with ruby necklaces, is seated in regal splendor Sri Hari, the Transcendent Lord in all His majesty and glory. Will it ever be possible?

A shining golden shawl caresses His emerald green body, the radiance of feet and nails rivals that of the moon. Rich anklets adorn his feet. Diamond-studded jewels adorn the two arms, pearl necklace adorns his breast, as earrings sport around His ears, a faint smile radiates from His face, as curly forelocks gambol, veiling and unveiling the saffron make on his forehead. Mirror-like shining cheeks, the Embodiment of the entire world's beay. O me, what a feast. Is it ever possible?

As ascetics who have controlled all desires, inertia and lethargy stand dumbfounded and overwhelmed by the sight of the Lord seated on a golden swing, the ever generous Sita Devi watches her spouse in ecstasy. This Tyagaraja, son of RamaBrahma moves the swing singing the glory of the Lord in ecstatic delight, The exploits of the Lord of the Universe, the Destroyer of the wicked and sustainer of righteousness, one who is beyond the three gunas Satva, Rajas and Tamas. One who had all desires fulfilled, Embodiment of Truth, Source of all virtues that Rama Darshana is the contentment of the eyes; will it ever be possible to have...?
