Enta Matramuna Lyrics in English
Entha maathramuna evvaru thalachina Antha maathrame neevu
Antharaantharamu lenchi chooda Endanthe ippati annatlu ||
Koluthuru mimu vaishnavulu koorimitho Vishnudani
Palukuduru mimu vendanthulu para brahmam banuchu |
Thalathuru mimu saivulu thagina bhakthulunoo shivudanuchu
Alari pogadudhuru kaapaalikulu aadi bhairavudanuchoo ||
Sarinennuduru shaaktheyulu shakti roopu neevanuchu
Darishanamulu mimu naanaa vidhulanu, Thalapula koladula bhajinthuru |
Sirula mimu alpa buddhi, Thalachina vaariki alpambaguduru
Darimala mimuye ghanamani thalachina, Ghana bhuddhulaku ghanudavu ||
Nee valana korathe ledu mari Neeru koladi thaamaramu
Aavala bhaageeradhi thari baavula Aa jalame oorinayatlu |
Sri Venkatapathi neevaithe Mamu chekoni yunna daivamu
Nee valenay nee sharananedanu Idiye para tatvamu naaku ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Enta Matramuna Meaning:
Oh Lord! Your devotees visualise You in many ways. They want to see You in different forms and ways. However, the deeper one’s heart envisions You, the more shallower is Your grace felt!
Vaishnavites assume and believe You profoundly to be Lord Vishnu;
Vedantas envisage You as the ‘Supreme Lord’ or ‘Parambrahma’;
Shivites and some others deem You as Lord Shiva;
Kaumalikas pray and revere You as Adi Bhairava;
Shaaktheyas presume You to be the incarnation of Shakthi;
You bless all of them in the form they desire You to be in !!
In this way, Your devotees revere and prostrate before You, giving you the form and shape they wish to see You in.
To those devotees who see You in the tiniest form, You are the tiniest to them;
Likewise, those who revere you with high esteem, You are the greatest and all-in-all for them.
There is no dearth of anything in this world if only You are beside me!
Just as a lotus plant creeps all over the span of water (in a pond/lake/river or wherever it is) leaving no space for anything else,
Just as the wells around the great Bhagirathi river never dry up (because the wells are always fed with water from this river beside);
(I pray to You, Oh Lord! Please be beside me!)
If YOU are the Lord incarnated on the Venkatadri mount, YOU are bound to be by my side!
It is You, Oh Lord, who have made me to become Your devotee;
It is You, Oh Lord, who have knocked my doors ~ only to grant me the Protective Asylum under Your Lotus Feet;
You are the ONE who enlightened me;
This is the eternal bliss for me!
This is the Para-Tattvam for me!
This is my moksha-marga (and salvation)!
