Sl. No.248; Raama natajana ; Begada; Eka; Keerthanam; Saanskrit.

Oh supreme Lord RAMA! You fulfil the desires of devotees who prostrate you. Always protect me.
Your handsome face always shines with lively smile. You encompass me with your compassion. You annihilate the fear of the cycle of birth and death. You are the son of DASARATHA.
Your form has the beauty of the rain-clouds. You are praised by the celestials. Your eyes resemble the lotus petals. You destroyed the wicked in the battle. You protected the families of heroes. King of birds GARUDA is your vehicle. You reside in the heart of ANJANEYA. Oh handsome Lord! You are to goddess LAKSHMI, what the bee is to the thousand petalled lotus. The beauty of your form surpasses that of Cupid. You are always meditated upon by SIVA. Kindly see that I do not fall in the trap of Cupid. Oh the son of DARATHA! The jewel of RAGHU dyasty!

(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
