When I address you as O RangaSAyI and call you earnestly, can't you respond by uttering "O" and appear? It is said that sage RucIka, who happened to be turned into a wasp, become one with Lord Shiva by changing His name. You seem to regard SrI Rangam as your Supreme abode VaikuNTha itself and lose yourself in the enjoyment of the company of your consort SrI DEvi. When will there be an end to my sufferings in the midst of men who are so insular that they cannot stand the prosperity of others? I seek solace and relief from my hapless situation. Grant me your vision with garlands of pearls dancing on your bosom, O Lord, adorning the heart of TyAgarAja!
