Hi, can someone pls help me with the meaning for the below song by Kamalesha Vittala?

Saranara surabuja – gururaja || pa ||

Varamatralaya puramandira sun
Dara munindra baskara samateja || 1 ||

Kamitarthagala kamadhenuvina
Sime miri koduva maharaja || 2 ||

Besakota sankasanada kama
Lesaviththalana dasane sahaja || 3 ||

Thanks🙏

I am translating the Sanskrit words alone. Please note the corrections.

surabhUja - O Celestial tree (Kalpaka vrksha)
* bhU -ja means tree , that which grows on the earth literally
gururAja - O Best among Gurus!

vara mantrAlaya puramandira - O One enshrined in the excellent Mantralaya!
sundara - O Charming one!
munindra - O Best among ascetics!
bhAskara samateja - O One equal to the sun in brilliance!

Hope Savitriji will help us with the rest.

You are enshrined in the excellent mantrAlaya

You are charming,You are the best among ascetics,

You are as brilliant as the sun{1}

You are the king,You have exceeded the kAmadhEnu

in granting the wishes of the devotees.{2}

As the natural servant of kamalEsha vitthala

who resembles millions of moons.{3}
