The Lord of Death is worried.
Looking at all pious people ever involved in devoutly singing Names of Lord, the Lord of Death is worried.
Looking at the multitude of (his army of) warriors wielding trident and noose, telling them that now time has come for abatement of your uproar, the Lord of Death is worried.
In the same manner as the ferocious sage agastya (one born of pitcher) who dried up the ocean, thinking of the sacred name of the Lord which subdues even the terrible hell etc., the Lord of Death is worried.
He thought that it would be sufficient if atleast there are people who wander about not knowing the path (of salvation) (so that he could lay hand on them), but, noting that they also are singing the songs of the tyAgarAja considering tAraka nAma to be the essence, the Lord of Death is worried.
