Nanati Bathuku Lyrics in Hindi:
नानाटि बतुकु नाटकमु
कानक कन्नदि कैवल्यमु ॥
पुट्टुटयु निजमु, पोवुटयु निजमु
नट्टनडिमी पनि नाटकमु ।
येट्टनेदुटि कलदी प्रपञ्चमु
कट्ट गडपटिदि कैवल्यमु ॥
कुडिचेदन्नमु कोक चुट्टेडिदि
नडुमन्त्रपु पनि नाटकमु ।
वोडि कट्टुकोनिन उभय कर्ममुलु
गडि दाटिनपुडे कैवल्यमु ॥
तेगदु पापमु, तीरदु पुण्यमु
नगि नगि कालमु नाटकमु ।
एगुवने श्री वेङ्कटेश्वरुडेलिक
गगनमु मीदिदि कैवल्यमु ॥
Annamayya Keerthana Nanati Brathuku Meaning:
The everyday life is but merely a drama. What is seen and yet unseen constitutes the drama. Beyond these stands salvation and liberation from this drama.
The two ends are to be born and to be dead. Those are the truths. Whatever we do in between these two ends constitutes the drama which unfolds. We see the universe and the life which is right in front of us but we don’t see what is beyond. We don’t see the one which is beyond the universe and the time. That is where the salvation is.
We eat our food. We wrap a cloth around our middle. Between these and our end is the drama. when we cross beyond this, we see the salvation.
Our sins don’t dwindle. Our good deeds don’t extend. In between these, we do something and that is the much laughable drama. Beyond these there is one and only one Lord Sri Venkateshwara. Beyond the universe He is there and that is where the liberation is.
