I have been saved, indeed I am saved; all my worldly worries are over
The grace of Padmanabha's sacred feet is bestowed upon me.
My tongue has received the holy water and the prasaada of Hari
My ears have tasted the nectar of Hari's sacred names
The servants of Hari have become my kinsmen
The sacred mark of Hari has become my ornament.
Today my life has been granted all the riches
My life hereafter has become worthwhile
Shree kaaginele aadikEshavaraaya who is my father
Has come and settled in my heart.
