Annamayya Keerthana – Podagantimayya lyrics in English:
podagantimayya mimmu purusottama mammu
nedayakavayya koneti rayada ||
korimammu nelinatti kuladaivama, cala
nerici peddaliccina nidhanama |
garavinci dappidircu kalameghama, maku
ceruvajittamuloni srinivasuda ||
bhavimpa gaivasamaina parijatama, mammu
cevadera gacinatti cintamani |
kavinci korikalicce kamadhenuva, mammu
tavai raksinceti dharanidhara ||
cedanika bratikince siddhamantrama, roga
ladaci raksince divyausadhama |
badibayaka tirige pranabandhuda, mammu
gadiyincinatti sri venkatanathuda ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Podagantimayya Meaning:
Oh Purushottama, we have found you. Oh king of Pushkarini tank, don’t leave us.
Oh deity of my family, you took care of us. You are the treasure our elders gave us. You are the water bearing cloud to quench our thirst. oh Srinivasa, you are in our conscience.
You are the wish-fulfilling Parijata tree. You are Chintamani the divine gem to protect us. You are Kamadhenu, the divine cow, to fulfill wishes. Oh Lord, You are our safe abode.
You are our sacred mantra to lead our lives piously. You are the divine medicine to cure all diseases. You are always with me like my close relative. Oh Venkatesa, you are my Lord.
