Aarthi Prabandham – 17th & 18th Pasurams

Oh Ramanuja, like a metal plated with impurities, I (my body) have (has) assimilated bad (and forbidden habits). In spite of that, you had promised to lead me to paramapadham – a place where only highly evolved souls manage to reach. In this context, please explain your delay in coming to my rescue.

My father Ramanuja! This indestructible atma, by virtue of being entrapped in the darkness of ignorance, suffers an everlasting night of samsara. When will your solar rays dispel this darkness of ignorance?
