ST14. RAMA TAPS THE DOOR

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

SAINT THYAGARAJA

Once, while he was singing,
Someone was tapping
His house front door,
In an unexpected hour.

When he opened the door
He saw the Lord Rama there,
With Lakshmana, his brother,
Both appeared together.

That scene, how he saw,
The song, in Raga Attana,
Described the same briefly
With his devotion actually.

(He sang in Telugu:
Aelaa Nee Dhayaradhu Paragu JeSe
Vela samayamu Kadhu)

“Have you no mercy for me?
Why are you avoiding me?
To save me you’ve come.
You’re here just in time.”

“Oh You Young Lord!
Wearer of royal robes!
Protector of virtuous people!
Consort of Lakshmi!

Possessor of Arrows!
Giver of happiness!
Wealth of kindness!
Lord Vishnu!
Wearer of Tulsi garland!

Lord of Lords!
Please come!
Wisest among wise men!
Please come!

Lotus eyed Kanan!
Please come!
Lord of Solar Race!
Master of nectar like good people!

Majestic appearance like ocean!
Destroyer of Demons!
In beauty more than Cupid!
Moving with wise people!

The essence of all Vedas!
King of Kings!
The owner of feet worshiped by Sages!
Sun and moon as your two eyes!

Lord to whom one can surrender!
The most beautiful Lord!
The Lord worshiped by Lord Siva!
The owner of Garuda as his vehicle!

The owner of feet worshiped by Devas!
Father of Brahma!
Possessor of brightness more than crores of suns!
For elephant like demons you’re like a lion!

You’ve lotus like face!
Protector of sacrifice!
You’re worshiped by great devotees!
You’re the Lord mediated by realized souls!

You’ve no beginning or end!
You’re the Lord sleeping on Adhisesha!
The Savior of Gajendran, the Elephant King.
You’re the wearer of Punnai flowers!

You always remove all sins!
Under your feet is Hanuman, the son of Wind God!
You sail in Upanishad!
You’re the Lord with no desires!
