Oh Ramanuja! We set out to achieve the divine grace of Lord Ranganatha as our goal. We are blessed to stay in the town of Sri Rangam, the first of the divya desams. We are indebted to have had a taste of Nammazhwar’s Thiruvaimozhi, a work that contains a heavy dosage of divine auspicious qualities. We were enriched through your sambandham in a manner Madhurakavi Azhwar benefitted by associating himself with the lotus feet of Nammazhwar. We learnt the Rahasya granthas of our preceptors and spent our time delivering discourses on them. While doing all of this, we were fortunate to have been blessed with single-minded devotion and focus to the duties we carried out. By living a life like this, we also became the object of other people’s praises and good wishes.

Oh Ramanuja! You made me realize that being your devotee is important for my upliftment. I earnestly urge you to deliver me from this world without my having to undergo the illness associated with this body.
