O Lord! Why woudn’t You bestow on me the same kind of wisdom as that of great people? O Lord Rama! Where could I go?
Like all others, I too have been prattling jumping here and there; isn’t it that it (wisdom) has become a fruit which could not be attained?
Even after I have known the true philosophical meanings of Vedas and Sastras, known the undifferentiated Vedanta, and known the secrets of the knowledge of nAda, O Lord praised by this Thyagaraja! why wouldn’t You bestow on me the same kind of wisdom truly like that of great devotees?
Very devotional and inspiring krithi, we are blessed to hear this piece of music and shatha koti pranams for posting the lyrics.
O Lord rAma! O Lord praised by this tyAgarAja!
Why woudn’t You bestow on me the same kind of wisdom as that of great
people? Where could I go?
Like all others, I too have been prattling, jumping here and there; isn’t it
that it (wisdom) has become a fruit which could not be attained?
Even after I have known (1) true philosophical meanings of vEdas and
zAstras, (2) undifferentiated vEdAnta, and (3) the secrets of the knowledge of nAda, why wouldn’t You bestow on me the same kind of wisdom truly like that of
P O Lord (ayya)! Why (enduku) woudn’t You bestow (iyyavu) on me the
same kind of wisdom (buddhi) as that of (vale) great people (peddala) (literally
elders)? O Lord (ayya) rAma (rAmayya)! Where (endu) could I go (pOdunu)
A Like (vale) all others (andari), I too have been prattling (vadariti)
jumping here and there (dATi dATi); isn’t it (kadarA) that it (wisdom) has
become (Aye) (paNDAye) a fruit (paNDu) which could not (rAni) be attained
O Lord! Why wouldn’t You bestow on me the same kind of wisdom as
that of great people? O Lord rAma! Where could I go?
C Even after I have known (telisi) the true philosophical (tattva) meanings
(arthamulu) (tattvArthamulu) of vEdas and zAstras,
known (telisi) the undifferentiated (bhEda rahita) vEdAnta
known (telisi) the secrets (marmambulanu) of the knowledge (vidya) of
O Lord (nAtha) praised (nuta) by this tyAgarAja!
why wouldn’t You bestow on me the same kind of wisdom truly
(nijamuga) like that of great devotees? O Lord rAma! Where could I go?
P – peddalu – Here this would refer to nArada and the like.
P – iyyavu – this is how it is given in the book of TSV/AKG. However, in
the books of TKG and CR, this is given as ‘Iyavu’. This needs to be checked. Any
A – anda rAni paNDu – The Aesop’s Fables of Grapes and the Fox seems
to be referred here.
A – dATi dATi vadariti – The exact meaning of this phrase is not clear.
From the context, it has been translated as ‘prattled jumping here and there’. Any
C – bhEda – dvaita as propounded by madhvAcArya is considered as
bhEda vAda. Please visit the following site to know more about bhEda vAda and
madhvAcArya – http://www.dvaita.org/overview.shtml
C – vEdAntamunu – This is how it is given in the book of CR and ATK.
However, in the book of TKG, it is given as ‘vEdAntamulu’ – thus pluralising the
word. In my humble opinion, ‘vEdAntamunu’ is the appropriate word. Any
C – nAda vidya – In the present context, it is taken to mean
‘nAdOpAsana’ as practised by those knowledgeable in music. However, ‘nAda
vidyA’ has a much wider connotation which is dealt in zrI vidyA and other Agama
systems. C – telisi – In the book of CR, this word has been attributed to the great
devotees. However, the flow of the language seem to point otherwise.
Particularly, the word ‘nijamuga’ seems to indicate that the ‘true wisdom’ is
something more than what is intellectually perceived, but a grace of the Lord
which zrI tyAgarAja is asking the Lord to bestow on him. Any suggestions ???
