As a result of penances performed earlier, I attained the ladder called the nectarine drink of Your name; O Consort of Lakshmi! Supremely blissful! I do not find any one equal to You. O Lord Venkatesa who has most auspicious feet! In order to worship You, one needs ten thousand eyes.

O Lord abiding in the hearts of ascetics! O Lord who dispenses fortune to those who consider You alone to be their refuge! O Lord reclining on the couch of blessed Sesha! O Lord dear to great devotees! O Lord praised by this Thyagaraja! O Lord Venkatesa who is well established on the Seshadri (mountain)! In order to worship You, one needs ten thousand eyes.
