What did you command to me and what did you think in your mind
Naa matalu vinavo, Rama,
Would you not hear what I say,
Is this what has been written in my head.
Susareera mosange ba-
Sura Thyagaraja nuth.
Oh lord who grants me life span , fame , good devotion,
A mind that is merged in you and a good healthy body,
Who is being saluted by the very lustrous Lord Shiva.
