Oh Paaduka! What a great achievement for You! You bring to the doors 
of ordinary men, to be visible to these physical eyes, in all His 
splendour to be palpable, the GREAT LORD, WHOM the 
Yogis, with a clear and clean mind, perfected by the five Yama 
exercises (Brahmacharyam, Ahimsa, truthfulness, non-stealing, and non-
accumulation of wealth) and the five Niyama exercises 
(Veda-abhyasa, pure habits, contentment, tapas of observing fast 
etc., and god-remembrance) are unable to comprehend
and WHOSE greatness is attempted to catch by the Vedas but only as a 
handful in magnitude-only to that extent the Vedas could see His 
greatness. This You do of Your own accord. 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan
