Maaru balka Kunnaavemiraa ? Maa Manoramana

Meaning: (From TK Govinda Rao’s Book)

One who adorns the heart of Sita! Why should you not condescend to give me a reply to my persistent appeal? O Lord of Ayodhya! Tell me if I have not been meditating on you, worshipping you and praying to you only. Have I sung praises of rich unworthy men?

I have realized that you are everywhere just as you are in my heart. The path  is now clear to me and I shall follow it gladly. A gentle word from you will however buttress my faith in you and in the path I propose to follow unwaveringly.
