(Commentary) In the last Sloka, he desired to be the servant to Koorthathalwan and other disciples of Sri Ramanuja. Offering servitude to the disciples of Sri Ramanuja, Mamunigal establishes his servitude to Sri Ramanuja in this Sloka. In the word kruthyam cha, the meaning of chakAram indicates his prayer to involve eyes and ears in good matters and hence placed them in the matter of Sri Ramanuja only. The first three lines in this Sloka indicate the concentration of body, mind and action focused on Sri Ramanuja and the fourth line indicates the non-involvement in others.  The two verbs bavathu and asthu indicate the prayer. The word krutyam means to do the duty compulsorily. Add the word tava and me in the first line to all other three lines also.
