( I beg the indulgence of my Kannada speaking 
friends for my huge  mistakes in tanscribing and translating 
 the words of the Sahityams  of Dasar ) . 

(Free Translation) : O Thirupathi VenkataramaNa ! May I be the 
object of your Karunaa. Please protect me, who believes in 
You and has sought refuge at your holy feet . Please do not 
disaapoint me by giving me darsanam first and then removing
Yourself from my presence .O Mukunda who has chosen
Anjana Giri as your place of residence ! O Lord who is resplendent 
with Your Makara Kundalams! The music flowing from Your flute 
is bewitching .O Muddhu Venkatesa standing on the top of the 
Eastern hill ! There is none equal to You in all the 14 worlds .
You are indeed the Lord , who is the Jagadaanadakaarakan .
As such , You gladden the hearts of one and all . You bless those
who practice Dahrma Margam and punish those  who engage in
unrighteous acts. O Lord who blesses one with the sought after 
boons ! O Varada ! O Moodala Giri Timmappaa! Please protect me,
who has taken bath in the auspicious waters of Paapa Naasani 
Theertham  and drunk the holy Sri Paada Theertham of Yours  .
Please protect me , who has abandoned now the anger and desires and 
stand infront of you singing  Your praise . Please come to my rescue !
