Oh Mother GodhA! You should bless me with the boon of speech that befits this occasion of eulogizing You. If You bless me with this boon, it will also be very pleasing to the divine ears of Your Lord Sri Ranganaathan. Just as Your Lord’s heart is gladdened by hearing the approaching sound of Your gem-studded ankle bells, He will be equally delighted to hear the sthuthi composed by adiyEn in Your honor. That would be the end result of Your boon granting the power of auspicious speech. Please grant me this boon to compose a poem that would be sweet to listen by Your Lord.
