ఎటు నమ్మిన ఓ మనస ఇంచు కైన యోచన సేయక ||
చుడు కంటి రోగ పీడిత మై చేడి క్షీ ణించె దేహము స్థిర మని ||
మట్టి కుండ కంటె హీన మైనట్టిది మాటి మాటీ కి రాదు దీని పై
వట్టి మోహము చెందుచును వరద వేంకటేశ్వరుని ||
eTu nammina O manasa inchu kaina yOchana sEyaka ||
chuDu kanTi rOga peeDita mai chEDi kshee Ninche dEhamu sthira mani ||
maTTi kunDa kanTe heena mainaTTidi mATi mATI ki rAdu deeni pai
vaTTi mOhamu chenduchunu varada vEnkaTESwaruni ||
You may believe in different ways, but a little bit of thinking (makes you realize the truth).
Why this fascination for this body which is very temporal,
which is bound to decay, afflicted by diseases?
This body is worse than an earthen pot.
Opportunity of utilizing this body for divine purpose is
not possible again and again.
Fascinated by delusion, you forget the Lord Venkateswara.
