Meaning (from TK Govinda Rao’s book)

My salutations again and again to Lord Tyagaraja; who seated on the great thron, the lord of Katyaayani and the protector of beings

His lotus-like feet are worshipped by Brahma and other celestials. His Lotus-like face is in conjunction with the subtle intellect of the individual selves of the distinguished Yogis. He has goddess Parvati in his left half of the body, the goddess who bestows material prosperity as well as salvation. His son is Guruguha. His banner is Tyaga and he is the birthless one.

My salutations to him, the somaaskanda worshipped by Mukunda and others. He fulfilled the ambitions of Muchukunda and other devotees. His image is reflected in the clear mirror-like minds of his devotees. He is greatly renowned for bestowing liberation to all such as sages, birgds, animals and worms. Those who understand the true import of Aagamas, Mantras and Tantras are dear to him. He makes all to realise God through the Mooladhaara Chakra. He is the basis for the mystic syllable – Aa, Ka and Ta and has permeated as SAT, CHIT and ANANDA in all beings and is of the form of SAKALA and NISHKALA. He has the power to obliterate knowledge of duality. He pervades as the power in the shrine of vitanka.
