My salutations go again and again to Lord Tyagaraja, he who is seated on the great throne, is the Lord of Katyayani and the protector of beings.
His lotus feet are worshiped by Brahma and other celestials, and His lotus-like face is in conjunction with the subtle intellects of the individual selves of the distinguished Yogis. He has goddess Parvati in his left half-body, the goddess who bestows material prosperity as well as salvation. His son is Guruguha. His banner is Tyaga, and he is the birthless one.
My salutations go to him the Somaskanda, worshiped my Mukunda and others. He fulfilled the ambitions of Mucukunda and other devotees. His image is reflected in the clear mirror-like minds of devotees. He is greatly renowned for bestowing liberation on all such as sages, birds, animals, and worms. Those who understand the true import of Agamas, Mantras, and Tantras are dear to Him. He makes all to realise God through the Muladharachakra. He is the basis for the mystic syllables A, Ka and Ta, and has permeated as Sat, Cit, and Ananda all beings, and is of the form of Sakala and Nishkala. He has the power to obliterate knowledge of duality. He pervades as the power in the shrine Vitanka.
