Translation

 

Give up your lowly attitude, O Undisciplined Tongue!

You are ever ready to blame other people without thinking.

 

First thing in the morning, O Tongue, should you not

Remember the consort of Lakshmi?

Look Tongue, constantly utter the names of

Redeemer of the fallen, the Father of Ratiís husband

 

O Tongue! I beg of you

Please do not backbite

Keep singing, O Tongue

The names of Sri Rama, ruler of the world

 

Keep Hari in mind, O Tongue, and

Worship Narahari by chanting

Meditate upon the lotus feet of

Purandara Vithala, the benevolent master.
