Abjasanastham avadata sujata murtim aameelitaksham anusamhita mantra ratnam /
Anambramowlibihi upasitam antarangaihi nityam munim varavaram nibruto bhajami //

(w to w) Abjasanastham  – one who is seated in padmasana for meditating Paramatma,   avadata sujata murtim  – possesses the body with beauty and whiteness like thick milk, aameelita aksham – with little closed eyes due to  meditating the  divya mangala vigraha of Lord which is  soothing to eyes and heart, anusamhita mantra ratnam  –  who is slowly and secretly pronouncing the Dvaya,  otherwise called Mantraratna,  Anambramowlibihi  – who has the bowed down head fully immersed in worshipping, antarangaihi  – close to  Koil Annan, Prativadi Bhayankaram Anna and other disciples,  upasitam  – who are always worshipping, varavaram munim  – Manavala Mamunigal, nibrutassan  – with perseverance, nityam  bhajami  – always I am worshipping.  

(Commentary) It is to be known that Viswamitra  says that one has to perform Yoga in a place which is not windy, without much undulations besides being beautiful and placing a wooden stool and keeping all limbs of the body in  the lotus throne with cloth, deer leather, sacrificial grass on it.  Based on Dharma Sastra, one has to perform Yoga  by focusing one’s two eyes on the tip of one’s nose, it is mentioned that Mamunigal has little closed eyes.  In Vishnu Tatva it is said that Yogi who is seen by all those persons, as he is meditating with incantation of the attributes of  Bhagavan  by rolling down tears due to happiness which is hair raising. Hence, I am always worshipping Mamunigal who is worshipped by disciples.
