Raghavendra Guru Rayara sevisiro

soukyadi jivisiro

tungatheeradi raghuramana poojisiro
narasinghana bhajakaro

sree sudheendra kara saroja sanjata jagadolage punitA
dasharatiya dasatvava ta vahisi
durmatigala jayisi
ee sameera mata samstApakarAgi nindakaranu neegi
busurarige samsevya sadacharanee
