You are the divine flame illuminating the subtle and lofty heights of OmkAra, the essence of the Vedas, out of which emanated the seven notes of melodious music.
You elevated to unsurpassable heights the Yadava race in (Krishna avatar) the one who is delighted in playing the flute and fascinated the Gopi’s by your bewitching charm and mellifluous music.
You are worshiped by Tyagaraaja.
