Drink the nectar of pure Nada, O Mind.
Sri Rama is the incarnation of Omkara, which is the essence of the Vedas and the Shastras.
The raagas have become his bow, the Kodanda. The seven notes are the bells tied to the bow and the three styles, Ghana, Naya and Desya are the strings of the bow. The gatis are the numerous arrows and the sangatis are his soft speech.
What is the good fortune of Tyagaraja to have got this gift from the Lord.
