O Beautiful teethed Mother Sita - having a face that puts to shame the moon – the Lord of stars - and O Lakshmana – son of Sumitra! won’t you inform me in detail about the grandeur of your serving, by standing on either side Sri Rama?

Are you bodily paying obeisance to Him? or are you engaged in chanting His names lovingly? or are you in trance meditating in the mind on Him? won’t you kindly inform this Tyagaraja in detail about the grandeur of serving Sri Rama by standing on His either side? Pardon me for asking!

Commentary

  • 1cukkala rAyani kEru mOmu gala – this can be applied either to Sita or Sri Rama. However, in all the books this has been applied to Sita only. The same has been maintained here also.
  • 2hari hari – Exclamation - A colloquial usage to beg pardon of venerable people for uttering something which should not have been said to them.
