There is none equal to you, so I am ever contemplating your feet alone. To protect the devotee, it appears difficult. Very good. Even in speech there is disparity. Is it not by worshipping alone that the virtuous like Brahma, sage Agastya, Shiva - spouse of PArvati, Indra, GajEndra, VainatEya, and AdisEsha reached high status? To listen to the appeal of TyAgarAja, there is none else equal to you.
