O Master, the Master of the world, protect me!
Remover of the ego of those who seek! Adorned with the serpent.
Lord of seven sages! Oh Lord worshipped by Vishnu, will Your
darshana attainable by the mean ones? What austerity did I to
get to see You, oh the Lord Who rejoices the singing of nArada!
Cure for the distress of the depressed! Ocean of supreme bliss!
One who gave birth to dEvasEnApati (subrahmaNya)!
Hailed by Vyaasa! I have found out that it is true that this abode is
the KailAsha on earth. By your sight my sufferings are all lost.
My life has become fruitful. One in the Vedas starting with Saama!
With moon, fire and sun eyes! One Who forbids the impurities
starting with lust! With the feet venerated by indra! Having the
bow of MEru! Taken abode in the hearts of sages! Love form
of (beloved by) Tyagaraja!
Lyrics contributed by Lakshman Ragde. Meaning from Compositions of Tyagaraja by TK Govinda Rao. Composed at Lalgudi, or Tapas Tirtapura, as mentioned here.
