Why idly by will I sit?
Why from pressure decide to quit?
As long as I have the power to speak,
I’ll honor he for whom love I keep.
Through good luck increased my intelligence,
Will use for honoring brother of magnificence.
Though to Shri Rama he is younger,
In dedication than him none stronger.
Endless words to my mind the Lord gave,
Why those precious thoughts will I quietly save?
This life for Lakshmana’s glory to enhance,
Will make best use of this wonderful chance.
