Shri Rama holds His bow steady,
He remains calm and cool under pressure.
For the devotees in pain or in sorrow,
He protects using every measure.
Tried to attack Him did they,
Khara, Dushana and Maricha.
Yet through arrows were they tamed,
Learning very well Rama’s power and reach.
The demons, both large and small,
Come to attack from every which side.
But Shri Rama holds steady and firm,
With His arrows He removes their pride.
May Shri Rama’s arrows always protect me,
And may His beautiful form my mind always see.
