Kondalalo Nelakonna Lyrics in English
Komdalalo nelakonna koneti rayadu vadu
Komdalamta varamulu guppeduvadu ||
Kummara dasudaina kuruvaratinambi
Yimmanna varamulella niccinavadu |
Dommulu sesinayatti tomdamam cakkuravarti
Rammanna cotiki vacci namminavadu ||
Accapu vedukatoda nanamtaluvariki
Muccili vettiki mannu mocinavadu |
Maccika dolaka dirumalanambi toduta
Niccanicca mataladi noccinavadu ||
Kamcilona numda dirukaccinambi mida
Karunimci tanayedaku rappimcina vadu |
Emci yekkudaina vemkatesudu manalaku
Mamcivadai karuna balimcinavadu ||

He is “Konetiraya” (The king of lake that is by the side of Tirumala Temple), who resides on the mountains. He grants wishes limitlessly.
He is the One who granted whatever “Kuruvarati nambi”, the pot maker had asked for. He granted boons to the emperor Tondaman, the greatest devotee – whenever he sought His help.
With true pleasure, He carried the mud without any remuneration for Anantaluvar (Lord Venkateshwara comes in the guise of a small kid and helps Anantaluvar while digging a well – for watering the plants in the garden raised for the sacred service of the Lord, – by carrying the dug mud). He is the Beloved One to “Tirumalanambi” who always desired to chat with him.
He is the one who graced “Tirukatchinambi” though he was in “Kanchi” (a popular shrine in Madras) where Varadaraja (another form of Vishnu. Vishnu is the prime form of God who is involved in protecting the good and destroying the evil). Lord Venkateshwara always showers His mercy on us if we serve Him with ‘bhakti’.
