SrI: SrImathE SatakOpAya nama: SrImathE rAmAnujAya nama: SrImath varavaramunayE nama:
pṛcchāmi tvāṁ dharma-sammūḍha-cetāḥ
yac chreyaḥ syān niścitaṁ brūhi tan me
śiṣyas te ’haṁ śādhi māṁ tvāṁ prapannam
My disposition troubled as to whether it is not selfishness (to kill and live), whether it is not sin (to kill), and lacking in the knowledge as to what Dharma consists in, I ask Thee. Tell me decisively as to what is best. For, am I not Thy disciple? Command Thou me, Thy servant (prapanna1).
