He did not perform the ritualistic worships and sacrifices Dharma which help in getting the gates of Heaven opened.

We want to carry along the journey of our life, stitching palaasa plant leaf plates as and when hungry and begging for sacred alms. The poet is deterministic. Vishnu being the husband of vairagya satakam in Goddess of Wealth, is a God of riches. That group of proud princes! Life is of limited vairagya satakam in. We are vairagya satakam in entertainers of obscene tongue.
