Prabho, you are wish-fulfilling divine creeper/ Kalpatharu and resembles divine cow/Kamadhenu to your devotees. Oh! Prabho, Lord Bhrama, and Lord Hara worship at your lotus feet according to the prescribed rites, and adorn their forehead with the dust particles from your feet. Oh! Prabho, worship at your lotus feet provides all the happiness and auspiciousness to devotees, Oh! Pranatharththiharin, Oh! Pranathapalaka, who is the protector of distressed soul, you are the Lord of the Universe and its living beings. Oh! Prabho, we are orphan, helpless, kindly shower your compassionate grace on us. If you are really pleased with our devotion, kindly provide us a boon, kindly reveal to us that marvelous form of supreme Bhramam which dwells in the heart of Hara, and the Muniganas who strive hard to achieve that Paramathma Parambhramam with the practice of various austerities and Tapasya, the lovely swan resides in the heart of Sage Kakabhusundi, that supreme Bramham of Nirguna and Sagunaswaroopa that was stolen our hearts. Oh! Pranarththi Mochana, that all-pervasive supreme Bramham is eulogized as ‘Nethi Nethi’ by Veda, is eternal, supreme bliss, has neither beginning nor end, free from afflictions, pure, unblemished, changeless. Oh! Prabho, kindly reveal your glorious form to us.” The humble and sweet nectar-like words of the divine couple were heard, lit extreme delight in the heart of the Supreme Lord who is a storehouse of compassion, kindness, and love.
