When the eye , the feet , the hands and the mouth ,
Tried to know the great one , the enchanter who was ,
The Lord Vishnu who has open lotus on his belly,
And who has occupied all this great world,
What type of eye is it , that did not see the black god,
And those eyes which did not him without batting the lashes,

When the woman bent to give poison to you ,
You proceeded against those who tried to harm you ,
And you were praised by people from four directions,
And later with drums making great sound ,
You walked as an emissary to Pandavas,
What type of toungue it is, that did not sing about the one who walked,
What type of toungue it is that did not sing about Narayana.

To carry the begging bowl.

She caused me to carry the begging bowl. 2

Wander about did I, too slothful
To wear the garland of tulsi leaves.
The lotus eyed Purandara Vitala
Made me wear the garland of leaves. 3
