Annamayya Keerthana – Nimushamedategaka Lyrics in English:
nimusamedategaka hari ninnu talaci |
mamata ni midane marapi bratukutagaka ||
nidurace konnallu neramula konnallu
mudimice konnallu mosapoyi |
kadisi korinanu gatakalambu vaccune
madi madine yuṇdi emaraka batukuta gaka ||
kadu tanayulaku konta kantalaku noka konta
vedayasalaku konta vettisesi |
adari kavalenanina andu sukhamunnada
cedaka ni sevale sesi batukutagaka ||
dhanamu veṇta tagili dhanyambunaku tagili
tanavari tagili katarudainanu |
kanu kaligi sri venkatanatha katuve
konasagi ninnune kolici batukutagaka ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Nimushamedategaka Meaning:
Oh Lord Hari, let me think of you every minute. Let me forget myself and live in your love.
I spend some days in sleep, some days in evil deeds and some days arrogantly. I am mislead. Even if I beg will the past come back. Let me keep you in mind always and live.
I give a lot to my children , some part to my wife and some part to fulfill my petty desires. If I repent and want it back would it give me happiness. Is it not better to lead a pious life in your services.
I spend all my life in pursuit of riches and food. I spend my life in attachments only. Oh Venkatanadha, if I awake and worship, will you protect me? I’ll certainly live in your service only
