Lord, I have heard the story
of your appearing before Dhruva mercifully;
Lord, What about the tidings
of your becoming man-lion for the sake of the Asura's son?
maraciyunna vana-caruni
brOcina mahima delupavayya
dharanu velayu tyAgarAja sannuta
taramu kAdika nE vinanayya1

Lord, Tell me about the grandeur
of protecting the forest-dwellers who were in hiding2;
Lord brightening the earth, praised by this Thyagaraja!
I shall not listen to your refusals any longer.
