|When the erudite Anjaneya (the one born of Wind God as an aspect of Siva) |
saluted you (and enquired about You), O Merciful Lord,
You asked your younger brother to convey the details to him; however,
(is it justified to be capricious in talking to) this Thyagaraja even if he talks to You?
- 1galadA – galadE: galadA is the appropriate word. (Discuss.)
- 2zaGkara aMzuDu – The story how Anjaneya came to be described as an aspect of Lord Siva is given here.
- 3tammuni palka – In their first meeting between Anjaneya and Sri Rama, the latter, while appreciated the scholarship of Anjaneya, did not directly talk to him, but asked Lakshmana to speak to him. (Valmiki Ramayana – Kishkinda Kanda – Chapter 3).
