Yatiraja Vimsati – 3rd Slokam

vachā yatindra! manasām vapushā ca yusmat
pādāravindayugalam bhajathām guruNām
koorādhināthakurū kēshamukhādya pumsām
pādānucintanaparassatatam bhavēyam

Oh, King of ascetics! Let me forever meditate
On the feet of Preceptors like Koorathazhwan,
Thirukkurugaippiran Pillan and others, who by word, deed and thought
Worship your lotus feet, ever and anon.

Notes:
This is in keeping with the tenor of the sloka 25 in Mukunda Mala-“tvad-bhṛtya-bhṛtya-paricāraka-bhṛtya-bhṛtya-bhṛtyasya bhṛtya iti māḿ smara loka-nātha! (The perfection of my life and the most cherished mercy You could show me would be for You to consider me the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of Your servant).

We will get back to this slokam when we discuss slokam 16, where this solicitude for serving Ramanuja’s ardent devotees has found its fullest expression.
