Transcendent Lord, wearing the divine garland VanamAla, I will place you in the cradle and rock you with lullabies praising you. I will feast my eyes on you eagerly and avidly, addressing you as the Lord of the celestials. I will contemplate you in my heart, chanting RAmanAma (the name of RAma). Praised by Shiva, you transcend all likes and attachments. Come to me, enable me to serve you. Destroyer of illusions, singing your glory is the surest way to redemption. I will praise you as the king of kings and worship you as the Lord of TyAgarAja.
