O RAma of auspicious attributes, I am yet to obtain your grace. If you choose to, none dare to stand in your way. I realized long ago that none by you can save me. Even so, there has been an inordinate delay. O Scion of the solar race. When I adore you as the supreme being, holding sway over everything in the Universe, why do you think it is beneath your dignity to extend your grace to me? Do you think that it will detract from your glory? Residing in the innermost recesses of my heart, is it fair of you to watch the ceaseless struggle going on in my mind silently? Condescend to respond without delay, Merciful Lord.
