O Mind! Sing the glory of Rama adored by Brahma and others, sages like Suka and others. He has an auspicious history. He is the Creator of this universe. He has won over sorrow. He is the Protector of Sages. He has now assumed the form of a Prince. He is the friend of Shiva. He is ever ready to offer refuge to the oppressed and virtuous who seek Him and eliminates their worldly ills. Like the sun that dispels the darkness. He has the patience of Mother earth. He is the Lord of Sita born of earth. He bestows everything. He is effulgent in Tyagaraja's heart.
