Father of Cupid! One who is as swift as the King of Deers in running to the aid of the Gods to remove their sufferings! Giver of boons! Resident in the heart of Lakshmi! Scarlet hued one! One with Garuda as his mount! Unsurpassed in compassion! Ever present in good company!

CharaNam
ranO Moon to the Ocean like Sun clan! Venerated lotus faced Rama, who was crowned as King! One whose feet are like lotus! Vanquisher of Cupid in beauty! Rama, of the clan of Raghu! Bridegroom of Sita who is on the left! Recliner on Sesha the great serpent! Delight of devotees! One with the Sun and Moon as two eyes! Soft spoken one! One with a forehead akin to an unblemished mirror! Destroyer of the sufferings of Sages! Govinda! Venkataramana! Mukunda! Sankarshana! Primordial root! Joy to Subrahmanya, the preceptor of Siva!
