Ocean of mercy - moon emerging from the ocean of the dynasty of the sun that causes the lotus to blossom! Spouse of Sri Devi! Dutiful son of Kausalya! One with a beautiful form. Friend of Siva who burned Cupid. Hearing of your exploits and your protection of myriad devotees, I come seeking your grace. Please show me mercy and assure me freedom from fear, O Lotus-eyed one!
Lyrics contributed by Lakshman Ragde. Meaning and notation from Compositions of Tyagaraja by TK Govinda Rao.
