Oh mind, sing the glory of Tyagaraja, and cut asunder the three types of afflictions man has to suffer in this world.
You are the dweller in the lotus-like heart of Rajayogis. Your tender feet are worshiped by Nagaraja, the serpent king. You adorn yourself with Nagaraja as bracelets, and are the sovereign of the silver-peaked mountain Kailasa. Your face resembles the lotus.
You are worshiped by Indra and other Dikpalakas. You have the helpful beloved Nilotpalamba as your consort. You are the originator of Guruguha, Lord of the three worlds. You possess three eyes. Yours is the glory of emancipating us through different stages such as Salokya and liberation. You are Nilakantha, bequeather of good fortune. You are adorned with the trident, and are the bestower of auspiciousness. Creator of the universe of five elements, giver of unlimited boons, you are the supreme master of the lord of death, and bestower of eternal bliss.
