Pallavi

మహిమ తగ్గించుకోవయ్య
మహిని సత్య స్వరూపుడను
మహా రాజ రాజేశ్వర నీ

Anupallavi

విహిత మార్గ భక్తులుగా మహాత్ములు
వెలయగ విన లేదా స్వకీయమగు (మహిమ)

Charanam

పనికి రాని పనులు జేసి శరణను
వారి వెతలు తీర్చి బ్రోచితివే
తనివి తీర నమ్మినడనుచు శ్రీ
త్యాగరాజ నుత తప్పులాడకు (మహిమ)

Variations

1మహిమ తగ్గించుకో – మహిమ దక్కించుకో – The meaning derived in all the books is ‘tone down Your greatness’. In Telugu the appropriate word for ‘tone down’ is ‘తగ్గించుకో’. However, ‘దక్కించుకో’ meaning ‘safeguard’, ‘protect’ also seems to be appropriate. In the latter sense, it would mean that Sri Thyagaraja is asking the Lord to remember that he has a great glory and He must live up to it. Therefore, the alternative meaning also has been included. However, from the example of ‘protecting those who sought refuge after performing useless jobs’, it seems that it is more of a relaxation of the prowess than safeguarding it.

Pallavi

O The Great Overlord of Emperors! O Lord! Condescend to tone down a bit Your greatness (OR Condescend to safeguard Your greatness) that You are the Embodiment of Truth in this Earth.

Anupallavi

Have we not heard about great personages shining as devotees in the decreed path? Condescend to tone down a bit Your own greatness that You are the Embodiment of Truth in this Earth.

Charanams

Didn’t You protect by relieving the distress of those who sought your refuge after having indulged in useless pursuits? please do not find fault with me because I have believed in You whole heartedly; O Lord praised by this Thyagaraja!
